Remodeling your home can be an overwhelming concept. It can be less stressful if you break the projects up into rooms. You’ll need to determine which rooms need the most remodeling and the benefits derived from the process.
When it comes to remodeling priorities, bathroom projects offer the most return on investment, both financially and functionally. Here are some ways you can benefit from remodeling your bathroom.
1. Increase Your Home Value
You may not even be considering selling your home in the near future, but when you do, bathroom remodels will increase its value. Homebuyers consider remodeled bathrooms a definite plus, so your home will have more appeal and likely sell faster.
Of course, the increased value depends on the upgrades you apply. Don’t expect to get a dollar-for-dollar return on investment. Financial experts say that bathroom remodeling yields about a 62 percent return on investment (in third place, behind attic bedroom and kitchen remodeling).
2. Energy Efficiency
Going green is not only good for the environment—it’s good for your wallet too. Updating your bathroom with energy-efficient features, like toilets, faucets, showers and lighting fixtures, can save you considerably in water and electricity usage. These, and upgrades like environmentally-friendly flooring paing, will also lessen your impact on the environment.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that if only 10% of homes upgraded to more energy-efficient fixtures in their bathrooms, over 70 billion gallons of water and $1.5 Billion worth of energy costs would be saved. Whether you are going green or looking to save some green, updating your bathroom with energy efficient faucets, showerheads or lighting will put you on the right path.
3. Make Your Bathroom More Modern
Is your bathroom stuck in the 50s? Or even the 80s? If so, you can get so much more out of it by remodeling it. The styles and functionality of more modern fixtures, tiles, flooring and lighting will bring your bathroom into the 21st century!
Imagine relaxing in a luxurious Jacuzzi tub while reading or even watching your favorite TV show! Or get the benefits of a shower with multi-directional heads and massage capabilities. You can even enjoy a warm toilet seat when you get up in the middle of a cold winter night. The possibilities are almost endless.
4. More Storage and Space
Have you outgrown your bathroom? Maybe it was just you and your spouse who moved in to the home years ago. Now your family has grown, and your need for additional space has grown with it. You may think you’re limited because of the room size, but by reconfiguring the space, you can open it up.
By remodeling your bathroom, you can also add more storage capability with shelving, cabinets and wall storage. Replace larger fixtures with more streamlined ones to open up the room. These will help organize and de-clutter the room. Store linens, towels, toiletries and more instead of crowding the tops of the vanity and other surfaces.
5. Make it Your Own
Take a look at your current bathroom. Does it meet the needs of your family? Are the fixtures, lighting, flooring and tiles outdated? Can you see yourself luxuriating in a more modern and comfortable atmosphere?
There are so many choices when it comes to upgrading and modernizing your bathroom. From stylish and updated plumbing fixtures, spa-style bathtubs and showers, and beautiful natural stone or tile, you’ll be amazed at the possibilities. Imagine enjoying your newly-remodeled bathroom for hours on end!
Change the color of the paint, resurface your cabinets, install new lights and upgrade the hardware in your space. Change out your shower heads, tubs, faucets, lighting and more. By changing the theme in your bathroom, you can refresh and rejuvenate your space in no time.
There may also be situations when your bathroom needs certain accommodations. Perhaps you have a family member that needs wheelchair accessibility or handicap-equipped showers or toilets. Or you may need a bathtub installed in a shower-only bathroom for kids.
