How Bathroom Remodeling Adds Value to Your Home

If you’re thinking of upgrading your bathroom then it’s always a good idea to consider the benefits that you’re actually getting for the costs involved and see if the investment makes sense.

One of our specialized services is bathroom remodeling. We’ve seen a wide range of needs from clients for their bathrooms and why they choose to upgrade. Below we’ll explore the most important ones and see how they can benefit you.

1. Create your personal oasis

One of the major benefits of upgrading your bathroom is that you’re actually investing in your lifestyle. Being the second most visited room after the kitchen, it’s one of the places where you can actually take some time off from the outside world and spend some quality time with yourself.

Upgrading it to be more up-to-date will make all the difference in making this one room an oasis – instead of a place where you just “get things done”.

But don’t take our word for it…

According to the National Association of Realtors’ Remodeling Impact Report[1] the bathroom remodel creates the most joy for its owner, with a Joy Score of 9.3! Once complete, 70% of homeowners have a greater desire to be home since the project is completed.

2. Increased overall value – both renting and selling

An improved bathroom leads to a more desirable property, which makes it worth more on the market and increases the chance of selling.

The average bathroom remodel is around $25,000 and according to the Remodelings’ Cost vs Value report[2], you may get about 66% of that cost back in the resale value of your home.

Now let’s say you want to use your home for 10 years more, that would be an investment of $1,100/year to have the bathroom of your dreams. It sounds like a no-brainer.

3. Better functionality, less frustration

A bath remodel can also be a way to get more out of your home.

Maybe your master bathroom is too small or the layout doesn’t work for you.

Remodeling it can provide you with a bathroom that is not only more comfortable but provides the functionality that you need. A bathroom designed to meet your needs will result in less frustration and better use of space for all!

Here are the 3 most common upgrades we do for our clients:

A Walk-in shower is definitely the #1 priority for most homeowners. For a brighter and airier sense of style, glass walls are ideal.

Replacing the flooring in your home’s bathroom will go the farthest in giving it a new overall look.

Another project with a big return is updating your bathroom’s vanity. Having matching cabinets with granite countertops, a new sink and faucets will really change the way the bathroom feels. Having everything at an accessible level will also remove any previous frustration you may have had with a badly positioned vanity.

Bonus: Dedicated storage. If you’re already renovating, why not remove the clutter from your countertops and create a dedicated space for cosmetics, towels, or any other items you use daily?

Improving functionality and convenience will not only bring joy to those who are using it but also make daily routines easier and less frustrating. And when life’s going well – happiness shines through!

So if you’re going for better functionality and livability, it’s definitely one of the best investments you can make in your home.
