Your bathroom: it’s the place you go to answer nature’s call. It’s where you wash off last night’s sleep and prepare for the day.
Did you also know updating your bathroom can increase the overall value of your home?
According to the latest statistics for home value improvements, in regards to renovations that give you return on your investment in particular bathroom remodeling you’ll recoup about 66% of that investment in your homes resale value.
“How is this possible?” you ask.
That’s what we’re going to show you. You’ll want to call CCCRemodeling after you read this.
Make Necessary Repairs
Before you give your bathroom a facelift, you need to make sure everything works. Faulty plumbing or electrical issues can take value away from your home. Make sure the toilet flushes correctly. Check your pipes for leaks. If the lights in your bathroom flicker, change them out. Addressing practical issues early will make the cosmetic process easier. You’ll even get a home value bump out of it.
Change Up the Flooring
I know what you’re thinking. “What’s wrong with regular tile?” Nothing, really. Tile makes for easy cleaning. It’s stain proof and water resistant. It’s also boring.
Consider using a laminate such as vinyl. Vinyl mimics the look of tile and has the same functionality. But vinyl floors give your bathroom a sense of style. It’ll look like an upscale spa (though you won’t have to pay upscale spa prices).
Install a Second Sink
This addition not only increases a home’s value but makes practical sense. The battle for the bathroom is real, especially if you have kids.
Two sinks ease that struggle by allowing two people to share the bathroom. Moreover, if your bathroom remodeling contractors can install the sinks thirty inches apart, they can share the same drain. You save money and your home gains worth.
Who wants a bathroom still stuck in the 1970s? These days, most home buyers want a big bathroom that’s also energy efficient. The first place to start is with the toilet.
Did you know older model toilets use 3.5 gallons of water per flush, some even more? Yikes! That’s a lot of waste.
Most modern toilets use a more efficient 1.28 gallons per flush. It may cost a bit to install, but it’s worth it in the long run.
When it comes to size, you don’t necessarily need a big room. You can give small bathrooms a sense of scale by playing with lighting. Use brighter light fixtures to open up space. Then, add to it with sconces around the mirror.
Add a Jacuzzi
We’ve saved the best for last. Imagine coming home after a long day at work, soaking in the tub, and getting a massage. That’s the dream, right? You can make it a reality with a jacuzzi tub. It will provide your bathroom with spa-like elegance, setting it apart from everyone else on the block. You’ll love it, and your home’s value will go through the roof.
