Home improvement projects can be a big undertaking. They often include challenges such as making design decisions, figuring out the financial resources you have available, gathering materials and figuring out project timeline. This can be overwhelming for people who have families, full-time jobs and social lives. The question is, is it worth it?
In this post, we’ll discuss four ways bathroom remodeling projects can add value to your home, making all that effort worth it.
Whether you’re looking to sell your home or increase its future value, remodeling your bathroom is an excellent choice. For prospective homebuyers, the bathroom is one of the most important rooms of your home outside of the kitchen and master bedroom. Buyers look for a bathroom that meets their design, size and functional requirements.
Looking at the numbers, bathroom remodeling has been statistically shown to increase home value. According to Opendoor.com, a full bathroom remodel increases a home’s resale value by an average of 3.7%. Aside from value, potential homebuyers see a bathroom remodel as a sign you took diligent care of your home, not just trying to flip it.
The bathroom is one of the most visited, important rooms in the house. We all spend a significant amount of time there every morning, afternoon and night. Often, these can be times when we are at our vulnerable or sensitive, since we’ve more than likely just woken up or are about to wind down and to go to sleep. For this reason, the bathroom should be as comfortable and soothing as possible.
Bathroom remodeling gives the opportunity to add value in the form of comfort and a sense of security. You can convert your current bathroom into a space that effectively sets you on track for an enjoyable day or a great night of sleep.
Monetary value and overall design are important, but at the core of every bathroom is functionality. If your toilet doesn’t flush or your shower doesn’t turn on, something is not right. Remodeling your bathroom gives you the opportunity to add value in the form of high end appliances such as your shower, bath, sink or toilet. These not only can boost the monetary value of your bathroom but contribute to personal enjoyment. As an added bonus, newer bathroom appliances are typically more efficient, potentially lowering your water bill.
While the bathroom is important for your comfort, it is even more impactful for any guests you have over. When friends or family visit your home, the bathroom is a place they can go to escape for a bit, have a moment alone or de-stress. It is especially important for more introverted guests or ones with social anxiety. A bathroom that isn’t clean or doesn’t work properly can be a sour experience for them.
Remodeling your bathroom gives you the opportunity to provide a more welcoming experience for guests. It adds value to your home by ensuring friends, family or newcomers will feel comfortable coming back
