Converting a bedroom next to master bedroom into a walk-in closetWe are now empty nesters in a 1700 sq ft 4 bedroom home. As such, the bedrooms, especially the master bedroom, are not that big. The "closet" that was in our master was only 5 1/2 feet wide - hardly enough room for my husband's clothes, let alone mine! When our oldest moved out, we moved the wall between our bedroom and hers back 6 feet, which essentially added 5 feet of space to our bedroom, and the remaning 6 feet x 10 feet of her old room was converted into a walk-in closet for our room. The "old" closet in the bathroom/dressing area was removed completely, and we are enlarging our bathroom to include a 5' shower (to replace the 32"x32" box that's in there now). I know you aren't "supposed to" remove bedrooms, but in our case the layout just wasn't working for us. I should mention our area suffered tremendously from the housing crash, and we have been underwater for 5 years - and are still under by over 100k (when we used to have nearly 350k in equity) so we have no plans of moving anytime soon, but when we do sell in the future, the rooms will not be reconverted to where they were. At any rate - my question is, will this conversion in our case actually help us? If not, how much did it hurt?
