Kitchens and bathrooms are two of the most important rooms in a home when it comes to overall value. An outdated kitchen or a small bathroom can harm not only resale value but also your daily home life. When you invest in a major renovation, you want the results to be a major investment that you love. That’s why both renovations have some major must-haves that shouldn’t be left out!
Dash Builders in Winnipeg are renovation specialists for every part of your home. They share some must-have additions for your major bathroom and kitchen renos:
Bathroom: in-floor heating
With any major renovation, it’s always nice to combine functionality with luxury. In the case of bathrooms, this means incorporating in-floor heating with new flooring. Heated floors are popular in spa bathrooms, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick with a full spa theme. In-floor heating is one of those investments that is both a luxury and a home value boost.
For a sleek and dramatic new floor choice, combine your heating with natural stone flooring. Natural stone tiles are a major value-boosting option, plus it pairs perfectly with floor heating. Since it naturally retains heat, your floors will stay toasty long after the heat is turned off!
Bathroom: double sets in the master bathroom
If you have a large master bathroom or plans to enlarge it, why settle for one set of sinks and mirrors? Doubling up not only gives a “his” and “hers” theme to the room, but it doubles the appeal. It turns your vanity into a real feature focus with plenty of wow factor, fit for a master bathroom! To save on counter space, consider installing vessel sinks for both minimal space and a striking addition. Also, don’t forget to pair each sink with its own mirrors to complete the look!
Kitchen: walk-in pantry
Walk-in pantries are not only essential nowadays, but they are a great way to boost value. As kitchens are now the main feature focus of any home, you want every space to be functional. With a walk-in pantry, not only do you have a designated storage space, but it clears room for the rest of the kitchen. You can store your spices, dry goods, cookbooks and even cooking appliances that aren’t used every day. Pantries can also be tailored to your needs, whether you want a pure storage pantry, or double up and add wine storage to it too! Draw some inspiration for your kitchen from these walk-in pantries with some major wow factor.
Kitchen: multi-purpose island
Yes, your kitchen island will be one main feature of your kitchen, but don’t let its full potential go to waste! Instead of just designating it as a seating area or ample counter space to work, double its purposes! Install a secondary, larger prep sink on the island with a pull-down faucet that will make filling pots a breeze. For the space below the countertop, install custom cabinets and storage solutions. Have below counter microwaves, pull-out trash bins or deep drawers for pans for easy access while you prep food.
As for the countertop itself, pick a material that is both striking but also functional. Quartz countertops, for example, are one such popular choice for being both durable and still stunning. They are resistant to scratches, stains, and bacteria, and have many available colours for a customized finish.
