Bathroom Remodeling Tips to Increase the Return on your Investment
When remodeling any room in your house, it is important to remodel it for you but also with an eye on the future. You want to make sure that the money that you spend will give you a good return when you go to sell your home. Remodeling a bathroom gives you the second highest return on investment, after kitchens.
Choose a design, floor plan and features that will work for most people. If you make the space too personal and choose very unique items for your room, you are narrowing your audience. Also, do not make choices solely on what you like. If you choose very specific colors, for example, with your tile, or your bathroom vanities, you are again limiting the number of people who will be willing to spend more money for it.
You may not want to add some features because you might not want them personally, but it is important to add them, if your budget permits, so that the remodel will be more valuable to future buyers. For example, you may not want a bathtub, but a bathroom remodel without a bathtub will not be one that all buyers will appreciate.
You might really want a very unique vanity or a very specific tub, but again, keep in mind that if it is too specific to you, you will not see the return that you might want when you well.
Remodeling a room can get very personal, but if you keep in mind that the room is one for your family to enjoy now, but will help sell your home in the future, it should help you decide what design, features and fixtures will be the best in the long run.
