    Renovating Your Bathroom Increases Value

    February 12th, 2013

    As a house ages or you simply become bored with the bathroom, you may consider a renovation. An innovative update to your bathroom such as changing to a more modern shower and vanity can make a huge difference in comfort. Rain showers today are very popular and this can truly make you feel invigorated in the mornings.

    One of the best reasons to renovate your bathroom is because it will give you a very good return on investment. When a home is updated, the the bathroom and the kitchen are the areas that increase the value of the house more than other areas.

    The value of a fully renovated bathroom can add as $10,000 or more to the value of your house.

    Another reason renovation is important in the bathroom is when a shower head is replaced as well as the toilet, and any leaky faucets, it can make it more energy efficient. In the long run you save money on your water bill.

    Of course, you have to keep your budget in mind when installing a shower or anything else in your bathroom, but there are ways you can do this even on a tight budget. You can find river rock stone, traverline tiles, and slate when shopping online. What's more, the tiles will be delivered to your home.

    If you are handy, you can remove your old tile in your shower and install the new tile. New tile or river rock in a bathroom truly makes it look incredibly chic and modern.

    You can also hire a contractor to install the tile or whatever you purchase for your bathroom. If you are not skilled in plumbing, concrete, and tools, a contractor is definitely the answer for you.

    If you have a strict budget to stick to, you might wish to consider updating the bathroom in steps. For instance, replace the tile now and the vanity or toilet later as money allows.

    If you bought a home and the design in the bathroom was not to your liking, a renovation will allow you to showcase your unique style.

    Regardless of how you wish to do the update in your bathroom, you will need to decide how far you wish to take the renovation. For instance, are the walls, door, vanity, tub, floors, and lighting part of your plan? Consider making it an ongoing project, this is easier on your budget and allows you to find items cheaper.
