If you are trying to increase the value of your home, bathroom remodeling is a great place to start. Potential homeowners seem to recognize the value of a new bathroom and after they look at several homes, you want your home to be memorable. So what should you do to update your bathroom?
Start out by determining a budget. You want to remember, most of the time, for every dollar you put into updating your bathroom, your home will increase in value by an equal amount. This is not true of all home improvements, but seems to hold true when it comes to quality bathroom upgrades.
New tile on the floors, walls, and in the shower will make a huge statement. While adding fun patterns and designs to the tile work may add a little expense, if you can afford it, it is well worth the extra time and money. A quality bathroom remodeling job, that looks like some thought was put into it, will be much more memorable than a hastily done job that is all one color and style.
If your vanity is the one that was installed in the bathroom when the house was originally built, a new vanity would definitely be an improvement. If a new vanity is out of the budget, try giving your old vanity a new finish and some new hardware. This gives the feel of a new vanity without as much expense.
New light fixtures are an inexpensive, easy way to update things. By eliminating a light fixture that was popular several years ago and installing a new fixture, it brings your bathroom up to date without too much added expense.
There are many ways to update your bathroom and help it feel updated and fresh. Depending on your budget, you can go all out with a total bathroom remodeling job or you can do little bits here and there to make it feel new without breaking the bank. Either way, a fresh look may add value to your home.
