A Bathroom Renovation Adds Value!

A Bathroom renovation is a great investment for your home. An up-to-date bathroom in your home can only make you feel happy but it can also help support the market value of your home. Here are some of the amenities that will most likely add value to your home.

  • First would be storage. Since the next generation of homeowners are preferring smaller houses, storage areas are very important. Having a linen closet that can hold large quantities of paper goods such as toiletries has a major appeal to people.

 

  • The second one is lighting. Overhead lighting can cast harsh shadows which can then make it hard to see very well. The best option for lighting is having lights on either side of your cabinet and also having a ceiling light. Your bath will then have bright, indirect light on it.

 

  • Third is a energy efficient hot water supply. Since you will probably be messing around with plumbing, you should revamp your hot water supply so you will have enough hot water when you take a bath or shower.

 

  • Fourth is a soaking depth tub. The most important feature of a bathtub when it is the centerpiece of the bathroom is its depth. A whirlpool is deep enough for you to sink into.

Before you remodel your bathroom though, you should see much you have budget wise. This will help you set boundaries on your design so you don’t go into debt while remodeling your bathroom. If you want to save money, you should consider refinishing items such as your tile, sink, shower, or bathtub. Refinishing is much cheaper than replacing items in the bathroom. The room will also not have the renovation mess that happens when replacing items such as the shower.

Some of the most effective updating is changing out all of the hardware. The hardware can include:cupboard handles, drawer pulls, and shower heads. Make sure that you use the same finish on all of the hardware such as brushed nickel, stainless steel, or aged bronze.

Also, be sure that you have enough ventilation in your bathroom. You should make sure that you have a vent fan in the room so that mould and mildew doesn’t grow in there. The new designs are more stylish and quiet than the older designs.

So if you would like to renovate your bathroom, decide how much of a budget you have for the project and then decide which items you would like to renovate in your bathroom.
