The bathroom is among the most-used rooms in your home, which means improving it for ease of use and aesthetics can help boost your home’s value. Here’s how.
How Does Return on Investment Work?
First, let’s take a look at how return on investment (ROI) works relative to bathroom remodeling. ROI is generally perceived in terms of reselling a house. Improving parts of the house – in this case, the bathroom – may increase its value and make it more desirable for buyers. The objectives are to not have to cut the sales price down because of the house’s age. Depending on the quality of the remodeling work, its costs can be recouped by commanding a better price.
But what if you’re not planning on selling your home? How does remodeling pay off? Some say that the satisfaction of owning valuable property is payoff in itself, but of course, there’s the matter of justifying the cost of bathroom remodeling. Think about it in terms of the money that you won’t spend after improving your bathroom. You hire roofers to install a durable, low-maintenance roof so you don’t have to spend more money in maintaining it; in bathroom remodeling terms, investing in long-lasting, quality flooring and fixtures may save you from having to remodel your bathroom in a few years’ time.
Bathroom Improvements With the Best ROI
Not all bathroom improvements are the same. The following are the bathroom renovations that can bring the best return on investment.
Universal design – Universal design refers to changing or adding features to improve accessibility. Family members with limited accessibility will benefit from improvements, such as curbless showers. Grab bars can improve bathroom usage for the elderly; this is a good investment if you will be in your senior years in the next 10 to 20 years.
Slab countertops – Slab countertops have surpassed being a trend and have since become a must-have for bathroom remodeling projects. They’re durable, easy to clean and maintain, and create an elegant look.
New backsplash and floor — The right backsplash and floor material can redefine your bathroom’s look and utility. They can serve as a focal point and unify the bathroom’s design, while improving water resistance.
