If you’re wondering about the value a bathroom remodel can add to your home, think beyond the return on investment. According to the Remodeling 2019 Cost vs. Value Report, there are three categories of bathroom remodeling – and none will deliver 100 percent ROI. In fact, the average is just about 60 percent.
Seeing that number may have you questioning the wisdom of a bathroom remodel. Most remodeling companies agree that remodeling just to sell your home is rarely a good investment. You may sell your home faster and get more for it than you would have if you hadn’t made the upgrades, but chances are slim that you’ll make back all of your investment. Instead, a new coat of paint and faucets, a few cosmetic touch-ups and maybe a new countertop will yield a better return than a total bathroom remodel if you’re planning on selling. However, there can be other types of value in a remodel.
More Efficient Space
As you look around your bathroom, do you wonder what the architect was thinking? Do you find yourself wishing for more or better storage? Does the wasted space have you wondering why there aren’t already two sinks in your bathroom? Are you tired of cleaning a rarely used tub, when what you really want is a larger shower? When you work with a bathroom remodeling company, these professionals can make more efficient use of the space. We can design around your wants and needs using the space you have or better configuring the space nearby.
More Aesthetically Pleasing
Are you tired of looking at a dated space? Do you wish for an oasis or spa-like retreat to relax in after a hard work week? Communicate that to your designer. He or she can turn your dated, unattractive space into what you want and need. Aesthetics can be about style, layout and even clutter. Too much stuff and not enough storage can make for an unpleasant space. With a few modern touches, your bathroom remodel can be your ideal space, from first thing in the morning until the end of the day.
More Useful for Your Family
Every family is different and families change as they grow older. One of the biggest changes we make to secondary bathrooms is separating the shower and toilet from the sink. This allows two people to use the same bathroom without sacrificing privacy when needed.
Adding universal design features as part of a bathroom remodel is another way we make the bathroom more useful for families. If you have a loved one with balance issues or who is mobility-challenged, consider remodeling with their needs in mind. This change may even bring you some peace of mind when you leave that loved one home alone.
