If you’re reading this, you probably are considering remodeling your bathroom. However, you may not be sure if the time and cost are worth the effort. Many homeowners overlook how an extra, updated, or remodeled bathroom can change their homes for the better. Here at Jericho, we are experts in bathroom remodeling and can help you understand how remodeling a bathroom can increase your home value.
When we ask people about what they are looking for in a new home, two of the most popular answers are an open and updated kitchen and an updated and remodeled bathroom. So, that is one of the first indicators to how your bathroom remodel can truly pay off in the end.
Let’s Look At Design
So, there are a few important factors to consider when updating a bathroom. Space, updating fixtures, and then figuring out which gives you the best return on your investment, even when it comes to a smaller buy.
Now, you may have a master bathroom that is only a partial or half bathroom. Updating this to make it a full bathroom increases your home value in a few different ways. Most homebuyers are looking for a full master bathroom with a tub, a shower, and at least one vanity. Many are looking for a two-sink vanity, updated flooring, and newer fixtures. So, if you have a true full master bathroom, this will increase not only the value of your home but maybe the deciding factor for a family if they are planning to choose your home in their buying process.
You can also create another bathroom in your home. The more bathrooms your home has, the higher the value of the home. This is why many people add onto their homes, and with the trend happening of several generations moving into one home these days, this can be of added benefit. Most homeowners are looking for a full master bathroom, another full bathroom, and a half bathroom, so it’s a good time to think about the space in your home first.
This can be a lower-cost option that will still have a large return for your home. If you decide to update some of your fixtures in the bathtub, shower, and vanity, you will instantly create a visual appeal making your bathroom seem updated. If you want to keep your start-up cost very low, this is something to consider, but still have an updated look.
What gives you the biggest rate of return on your investment?
A Double Sink. If you have a single vanity, one of the easiest ways to update your bathroom and gain a large return on investment is to swap that out with a double vanity. So many homeowners are not only looking for this feature but expecting it these days. This is one great investment that will give you a large rate of return.
There are several options on how to install heated floors these days. Here at Jericho, we actually have a quick and easy way to install them and these have been trending over the past few years. People want to wake up in the morning in the winters and walk into a warm room and our bathroom floors can get incredibly cold overnight. Once again, a great low investment for a very large return.
Even if you are not planning on selling your home soon and just want to have something luxurious in your bathroom, a steam shower is a great way to go. Steam showers promote good physical and mental health. Also, they have a great price point and give a very large return on investment.
There are a few other items to think about to add value to your home with a low investment. These are jacuzzi tubs, shower seats, and adding storage. Returning to the double-sink vanity, by doing this you are not only adding another sink, but you are adding well-needed storage. So, that is a terrific investment to think about!
