Bathroom Remodeling : Thinks to Consider First
One of the best investments you can make in your home is bathroom remodeling. If you intend to sell your home sometime soon, consider doing a bathroom renovation to increase your home’s value. You don’t have to remodel your bath just before selling it. You can fix it up months before or even a year before you sell your home so you can also enjoy your new bathroom.
If you plan to sell your house within the next few weeks, renovating the bath will have great benefits. A new bathroom will catch the eye of critical home buyers. Most people are very particular of their bathrooms and a stained bathtub or cracked tiles on the floor will not be an appealing feature for most home shoppers. A good looking bath can make all the difference when decision time comes.
Having your bathroom renovated will also let you see some defects you have missed. If home buyers discover these problems, it will be a good reason for them to negotiate for a cheaper price. If you are not selling your home, bathroom remodeling can reveal leaks that could cause more damage in the future. Remodeling it will include fixing minor damages that can eventually become bigger and more costly problems.
When designing your bathroom renovation, make sure that the fixtures and design for the new room will go with the rest of your home design. It would look funny to have a brand new modern minimalist bathroom in a country home. After you get the right design for your new bath, it will be time to decide on other features such as installing heated tiles on the floors or putting in state-of-the-art shower fixtures that may cost a bundle.
Budget is another concern when fixing up your new bathroom. Consider the cost of materials such as ordinary tiles compared to the cost of natural stone flooring. Lighting can also add drama to your bath but can also be expensive accessories if you pick the latest technology in lighting fixtures. Consider using natural lighting and skylight to add both drama and a cost effective light source. Before buying costly new toilets and sinks, think if you can really afford splurging on expensive bathroom items.
Having your bathroom remodelled can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000. Calculate the total cost of the bathroom you want versus the new bathroom you can really afford. Bathroom remodeling can still work without the expense of high-end bathroom fixtures. Use your creative talents to make your new bath look like an oasis but cost something you can still afford.
A good way to go about low-cost bathroom renovation is by consulting with professional contractors. These professionals can help you cut down costs by recommending cheap sources for bathroom fixtures and accessories. They can also make suggestions about the design to make you room look classy on a low budget. Another advantage to hiring a professional bathroom contractor is their ability to make your bath more eco friendly by using water saving shower and faucet fixtures.
