Bathroom remodeling may not be on the top of your to-do list, but maybe it should be! The bathroom is not just a place for prinking, preening, and carrying out functional hygiene tasks. It’s also a place to relax, unwind, and practice a good old-fashioned dose of self-care. But let’s be honest, none of these tasks are pleasant when you’re doing them in an outdated and drab space.
Nowadays, bathroom remodeling is the go-to for adding style to a home and, of course, value to the property. One of the best ways to get a good return on investment with a property, and make a home more aesthetically appealing and comfortable, is to carry out a bathroom remodel.
The good news is that statistics show you’ll get more than 60% of the costs back when/if you decide to sell the property. The remodeling cost will come down to what you choose to do. The biggest return on investment often comes from updating the layout, increasing natural light, installing modern cabinetry, changing the single sink to double sinks, enlarging the shower and generally creating a more usable space using high-end materials that will allow you to enjoy a more Spa-like experience.
Do This Before You Dive Head-First into Bathroom Remodeling
- Ensure there are no faucet leaks, the plumbing is in good order, there are no structural defects, and that the electronics are functioning correctly.
- Have a list of objectives for your bathroom remodeling project.
- Upscale remodels involve new construction or completely gutting the space.
- Have a Designer help choose a color scheme and carry it throughout the bathroom.
Below we detail each of the remodel aspects that we believe add the most value to a modern bathroom.
Adding Extra Storage Cabinetry
The bathroom has storage demands of its own. Any homeowner or buyer will genuinely appreciate added storage cabinetry to the master bathroom. Freestanding bathroom cabinetry, a double vanity, and hidden bathroom cabinetry can add charm and functionality to the space.
Decide if you would be better off without the tub! Removing a seldom used tub and changing the entire look and feel with a new, enlarged shower with a bench or additional shower heads is a sure fire way to add enjoyment to your new bathroom.
Why have one sink when you can have two? Most homes are shared by two or more people, and having a double sink and double vanity just makes sense! Besides just making sense, double sinks create more storage space and provide extra room for when you need to spend a bit of extra time in front of the mirror. And, of course, if your bathroom is very spacious, a single sink may look dwarfed in the space.
