With spring and the house selling season right around the corner, you may be contemplating remodeling your bathroom. If you are like most people, you want your bathroom to be an oasis, a place where you can relax. You also want to improve the overall value of your home by remodeling your bathroom. Unfortunately, many people don’t know how to do this. However, our team at The Construction Group has put together a list of ways you can strategically increase the value of your bathroom remodel while you simultaneously enhance its comfort level.
Tip #1. Improve Your Lighting
If you’ve ever visited a spa, then you know they use lighting to enhance your experience. You can do the same in your bathroom remodel. The trick spas use is incorporating different types of lighting. To get the spa-feel, use task, ambient, accent, and natural lighting strategically in your bathroom. With different types of lighting, you can change the mood of your bathroom and highlight different features in your bathroom.
Tip #2. Incorporate Water-Saving Features
Another way to add value to your bathroom is to incorporate water-saving features. Everyone wants to save money on their utility bills, so they value homes that have those features. If you anticipate selling your home in the future, water-saving features will give you an edge over your competition. You can include low-flow features like a toilet, faucet, or shower.
Tip #3. Focus on a Universal Design
As the owner of your home, you want your bathroom remodel to reflect your personality. It makes sense/ However, too much personality in your bathroom can be distracting to other people. If you focus on a universal design instead, you’ll increase the value of your bathroom remodel, and you won’t have to make so many adjustments when it’s time to list your home for sale.
Tip #4. Have a Professional Do Your Bathroom Remodel
You’ll get more value and save time by having your bathroom remodel completed by a professional. Although DIY bathroom remodels may seem like it can save you money, it’s possible that it won’t. People who remodel their bathroom don't get the same polished look professionals get when they remodel bathrooms. You can avoid the headaches and build real value into your remodel by hiring a professional.
