Renovating a bathroom is a sure way to add value and function to your home. There are some things you can do with your bathroom renovation that will have a better return on investment than others. If you are ready to renovate, let the general contractors in St. Albert from Nest Builder work with you to design and build your new bathroom.
Here are some tips on adding value to your bathroom renovation:
Like any renovation, bathroom renovations in St. Albert can be a minor upgrade or a full-scale overhaul. The great thing, too, is that both options will add value and have a great ROI. A mid-range bath remodel can recoup up to 60% of the cost, while a universal design will recoup 58% of the cost, according to Remodel Magazine. However, the thing to keep in mind is that those values will only happen if you renovate wisely. Overhauling a bath for the sake of an overhaul isn’t the same as expanding a small master bathroom into a truly luxurious space. Only the one handled with purpose and a plan will add genuine value and appeal to your home.
Look at cosmetics
Sometimes all your bathroom renovations in Edmonton need is a little visual and cosmetic upgrade. Instead of tearing out plumbing and flooring, look at the state of the paint or tiling. Could a fresh coat and colour of paint help brighten the room and give it a new look? Does the tile grout need refreshing, and could a new style of tile turn that shower into an eye-catching focal point? Even just changing the handles on the cabinets and drawers or adding a new shower curtain or towel racks will go a long way.
If you do need to replace plumbing or need a new toilet and tub, take the opportunity to be efficient. Low flow faucets and showerheads will use less water, so you save more on monthly water bills. A dual flush toilet gives you options when flushing and can significantly reduce water consumption and monthly bills. An energy-efficient space will be a major point of appeal for any potential buyers. So, you can save more now and then earn more later when selling a market-contender home in the future.
Add sensible luxury
Luxury added with a purpose and intent, though, will also add extra value. For a shower overhaul, for example, a walk-in glass enclosure with wall jets makes sense in a stylish master bathroom. It may be nice for the guest bathroom but doesn’t necessarily add the right value there. Changing the flooring in a bathroom is always a good idea but consider heated tiles for a basement bathroom. It’ll keep the room feeling warm and without having to crank up the temperature and increase heating bills. Nest Builder can help you decide what bathroom features to include or leave out, depending on your needs, budget, and lifestyle.
