Giving your bathroom a facelift with a remodeling project can be a fantastic way to add value to your home, but it is important that you are careful when deciding how much to spend on the various features. From a new vanity to replacing a worn-down bathtub, you will need to take the time to plan how much you can afford to spend on the project. If you are working around a budget, consider the following features that are best tackled to give your home the biggest increase in property value.
Knocking Down Walls to Maximize Space
If the bathroom feels cramped due to unnecessary walls or even half-walls, it may be a good idea to remove them. As long as the walls are not needed for structural support, you can make a big difference in the appearance of your bathroom and the amount of square footage you have to work with.
A smart way to give your bathroom a new look while keeping costs low is through only getting new fixtures that are considered energy-efficient. By looking for fixtures such as a new sink faucet, toilet, or shower that is rated to be energy-efficient, you can see a difference in how much water or electricity your home consumes, while also giving your home more appeal to future homebuyers.
New Lighting that Softly Illuminates
Making sure that your bathroom is well-lit is so important for making the bathroom welcoming and a good place to get ready in the morning. When choosing new lights, avoid any bright fluorescent lights that can cause strain on your eyes, and look for only lights that will produce a soft glow for the entire room.
Vent Fan to Prevent Unnecessary Moisture
Mold and mildew can be a major issue when it comes to the bathroom due to how much moisture is generally in the air after showering or bathing. In order to combat this problem, you should get a bathroom vent fan put in. Whether you install the fan yourself or use professionals for this job, you will be able to make a big difference in the moisture in the room.
Vanity or Shelves with Storage
Storage is an essential part of any good home, so it makes sense to focus on this feature when remodeling the bathroom. Including storage underneath the sink through a vanity or even above the toilet with shelves are both good ideas and can provide room for towels and toiletries.
With all the projects you can tackle when remodeling the bathroom, it is best to determine what should be first in your priority list. By focusing on the above features, you can be sure that you get the best return on your investment.
