An updated bathroom not only adds quality to your life it may also attract potential homebuyers. Whether you are happily settled in your dream home or looking to sell, making sure your bathrooms are up to date is always a good thing. Consider these bathroom renovation tips to spruce up this essential space in the house.
Think about trying a sleeker design for the shower stall as this is an easy way to add value. Barrier-free shower systems add luxury to the space, making getting in and out of the shower easier for adults, young and old alike. Install large glass doors that will help the room look larger since there is no shower curtain separating it from the rest of the space. Consider a large shower head or multiple jets that provides adequate water pressure. They will not only look nice but give you a spa-like feeling right in your own home.
Updating your bathroom floor will change the whole look of the room. Be sure to use a material that is resistant to water and stains. Tile is a classic choice, but there is also vinyl, cork and engineered wood to consider. Any look is possible since they are all good choices to use in a damp area, so feel free to step out of your comfort zone to give them a try.
New cabinets will help bring your bathroom up to speed. Determine whether you want to have more or less storage as this will help you choose what design will function best in the space. A master bath may require larger cabinets than a guest bathroom that isn’t going to get as much use. If the space is small, using lighter colors is helpful for making the room look bigger. If you’re cabinetry is large enough to accommodate dual sinks for your countertop area, go for it. Potential homebuyers love to see this in a home. For single sink areas, choose a bold idea like a vessel sink or a drop-in with detailed design around the rim to add character.
Fixtures also play a big part in the look of your bathroom. They come in an array of finishes to complement the rest of the room and a variety of styles that lets you choose whether you want to go for a vintage, contemporary or modern look. Be sure to match the cabinetry, shower and lighting fixtures to keep on theme with your renovated design.
