Question Electrical Service Panel Code

I plan on having the electrical service panel upgraded to 200 Amp. It also is part of redesigning the basement layout. I realize code does not permit a panel in a closet or bathrooom, but is it
allowed in a bedroom?

I see no reason why you couldnt put it in the bedroom, especially if the meter base is right outside.

You may want to check with your local inspection department as they may have a local bylaw about where the panel is placed. In the majority of places it would be allowed in a bedroom as long as the clearences are available, and the meter base is close by. They do tend to frown on unneccessary distances between the panel and meter base.
