Bathroom remodels can dramatically increase the value of your home. By replacing outdated features with modern and energy efficient baths, toilets and sinks you can increase the value of your home. In addition to getting a higher return on investment, you will get the peace of mind that your house will be easier to sell. Before you dive into a renovation, consider these remodeling factors.
What is Your Overall Plan
The process of remodeling a bathroom is time consuming and messy, plus it is inconvenient… especially if you have a one bathroom home. However if you have 6 bathrooms knowing what to expect and planning accordingly can make all the difference in staying sane during the project. Upgrading your tub or shower is often done out of the need to modernize rather than a necessity. It is important to take an unbiased look at your bathroom to truly assess what is required. When replacing your toilet or tub, you may need to upgrade the piping, which will be costly. All these small choices must be made while figuring out your budget and the amount of work needed to get the bathroom you envision.
Showers and Tubs
Today’s tubs are less likely to be positioned in a corner where they take up valuable square footage. A freestanding tub is ideal for creating that spa-inspired look. Shower stalls are also convenient and popular in modern bathrooms. Do you need both in your bathroom. Is the bathroom big enough for separate units? Do you still want to combine the units? Making these choices will provide the plan for your renovation.
Too often lighting a bathroom is low on the list of priorities relative to other rooms in the house. But with bathrooms becoming larger and more elaborate, proper lighting is essential to making the most of the space. Your family spends every day getting ready for the day in the bathroom. Task lighting near the mirror and in the shower area are ideal. The lighting fixtures should tie in the design of your room.
Remodeling an existing bathroom or putting together a brand new one can be a fun and exciting challenge. Among all of the things to consider, something like water or energy efficiency can easily fall by the wayside as finishes and design take center stage. Luckily, it’s not hard to create an efficient bathroom these days, thanks to various regulations and popular certifications. Investing a little extra in an energy – efficient fixture or dual flush toilet will help save you money in the long run.
Don’t Be Too Trendy
You have to remember that home décor is a lot like fashion. But altering the look of your bathroom is not as easy as putting on a new dress or changing your blouse. A classic look should last a while, perhaps as long as a decade. You can easily give a new twist to the appearance of your bathroom by adding a few touches that won’t break the bank but liven up a situation that maybe you’ve grown tired of. Recognize what works and what does not work for you and go from there.
