How a Bathroom Remodel Can Increase Your Home’s Value

If you’re looking to upgrade your bathroom, you have all of the reasons to do so, as bathroom remodeling is a higher return project in itself. There are numerous reports that support this premise by indicating that homebuyers are keenly focused on how well kept the bathrooms in their prospective homes are. If they happen to find bathrooms in a poor condition, it is an immediate deal breaker.

According to a report by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, properly renovating bathrooms, bearing in mind the features that are most appealing to homebuyers, can result in a 50% recoup of the total cost of investment. Therefore, it is important for homeowners to know where to put their money before putting their homes on sale.

The primary factors that rake up the value of your home in regards to a bathroom remodel project are upgrading fixtures, tiles and toilets. Moreover, adding energy efficient appliances can also serve as a bonus. Although, there are no regulations in place that require homeowners to set up their bathrooms to certain standards before selling their homes it is ethically a right thing to do. In fact, the prospect of gaining revenue on your investments mostly occurs as a result of making nominal changes like tidying up the bathroom with proper tiles, adding a decent countertop with a well adjusted mirror (usually a vanity) that comfortably reflects a person’s face and torso.

When we talk about tiles, it is important to bear in mind that tiles represent the overall flooring and hence, convenient traits are more appealing to prospective buyers than just aesthetics. Replacing the flooring with something that offers waterproof and moisture absorbing features will go farthest in raising the value of your home. You can also add an underfloor mat, which radiates heat and is layered underneath tiles/flooring.

Another value adding feature is a walk-in tub. This doesn’t mean the traditional pool-like tubs aren’t valuable anymore; in fact, they certainly are. But value changes in relation to space and other factors. If the bathroom in your home is less spacious, it is rather befitting to add a standing shower instead of a tub that occupies more space and eventually becomes inconvenient to maintain. Also, depending on the number of bathrooms in the house, you can add a variety of tubs. This makes a better deal. Generally, pool tubs are only used occasionally, as most people are usually short on time. But if a standing shower is available in one bath, then homebuyers are more likely to appreciate a pool tub present in the other bath.

All in all, it is a wise idea to explore as many contractors as possible to get the right price. Buying new hardware costs money as does the installation process. It is better to create a rough estimate of how much you’ll be spending and approach contractor services that best match that budget.
