April 27, 2015

There are many benefits to updating our bathroom; a remodel can increase the value, efficiency and aesthetic appeal of your home. If you are looking to remodel in order to resale your home, invest in the bathroom and kitchen. These areas are what home buyers are looking at most closely. They are rooms where we spend a lot of time and have emotional ties to. Homebuyers want a home where they will not have to put a ton of work into these heavily used areas. A fresh clean look could be just what you need to seal the deal on your sale. Here are some tips to keep in mind while updating your bathroom.
Timeless over Trend- You know how it is, you need a change but you’re not quite sure what you need to shake things up. While it’s easy to get caught up in a wild or trendy look all in the name a change, take a moment to ponder whether or not you think you will like what you’re looking at a few months down the line. It might feel like you are “playing it safe,” but stick to neutral colors for a clean look in your bathroom that will last a long time and never go out of style. You can let your personality shine through with accessories, like hardware finishes, towels, racks, shelving or a fun light piece. These items are easier to swap out when you need a change, than say, flooring, wall treatments or the shower system.
Add some WOW!- You may think that custom hammered steel sink is where your money should go, but instead of sending your investment down the drain, sink your money into an update you can stand on firmly, with radiant heat flooring. If your budget allows, $600 can buy you radiant heat floor mats. This cozy investment will make waking up in the morning a little more bearable and if you are looking to sale, prospective home buyers will see your bathroom as a luxury.
Accessorize- Sometimes your bathroom just needs a little something, something. It could be as simple as a new shower curtain or maybe a new shelving system. Swapping out towels can add a punch of color to your bathroom without breaking the bank, this tiny tune up will give your bathroom an element of design and function. Even something as small as rolling your towels instead of folding them can give that spa feel to even the smallest of rooms. A small investment in a hand shower, instead of the traditional showerhead can also add value and a sense of luxury to your shower at a marginal cost. Swapping out old faucet handles is also an inexpensive way to breathe new life into your room.
