Master Bedroom Renovation & Upgrades: 5 Tips For Making The Most Out Of A Dumpster Rental

Posted on: 7 March 2016


The idea of a master bedroom suite has drastically changed over the past couple of decades. Not only do these rooms have the most space, but master suites are almost like a miniature apartment. If you're looking to upgrade your home's bedroom into a master suite with walk-in closets and a private bathroom, then a construction dumpster rental is a great way to manage debris and waste during the project. Before renting the dumpster, considering the following five tips and ways they can make your master bedroom renovation go smoothly.

Dumpster Location

When renting a dumpster, companies will often ask for a specific area to place it. Instead of placing it as close to the home as possible, it's a good idea to leave a little extra room so the door to the dumpster can open. Many dumpsters have doors that can swing open. This makes it a lot easier to carry on big pieces of furniture like old bed frames or dressers. Instead of just tossing it over the top, you can neatly place it inside the dumpster and save a lot of space.


Be sure to look at the list of accepted items for the dumpster. Some dumpsters may charge extra fees for items like a mattress. Research to see if there are nearby mattress recycling centers that can accept your old mattress without the extra fee. By eliminating the fee, you can invest more money into your new master suite bed budget.

Dumpster Size

Renovating a single room may seem like there is not a lot of waste, but you'd be surprised how quickly a dumpster can fill up. Typically a dumpster for a single room should range anywhere from 10 to 15 yards. If you're converting two rooms into one master suite or replacing large sections like all the flooring, then consider upgrading to a dumpster that measures 20 yards in length.

Rental Time

It's important to rent the dumpster for the demolition and clean-out phase along with the rebuilding phase. As you remodel your master bedroom, you will have leftover supplies, packaging, and general waste that can be disposed of in the dumpster. Leaving a dumpster on your property will eliminate a lot of extra trips to the local waste transfer station. It can also help speed up the remodeling process.

Closet Cleaning

Along with a remodel of the room itself, renting a dumpster also gives you the opportunity to clean out some material items. This is a great time to get rid of old clothes, old shoes, or items that you no longer need. A good way to get rid of bedroom and closet clutter is to use the "Rule of 5." Every time you leave the home and walk past your dumpster rental, bring five items that you no longer need. It's easy to just them in the dumpster and forget about them. Within a week, you will have a lot of items gone and your new master suite will be ready for all new items.
