How to achieve the most value from your Bathroom renovation?
If you're thinking about selling your home in the future then you might be considering home renovations to increase its resale value. Apart from the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most important rooms for home buyers. In general, renovations bring up the value of your home unless however, a bad renovation can make it difficult to sell. So, if you are not 100% confident in your DIY abilities then consider getting professional renovation and installation services.
Simple updates such as a fresh coat of paint, updating the cabinet handles or knobs, towel racks, shower head and faucets are a huge game changers in making your bathroom look modern and fresh. We will go over some of the ways you can do to add value to your bathroom renovations.
Install eco-friendly faucets and fixtures
Water conservation and energy efficiency is one of the most important criteria for today's homebuyers. A low-flow toilets, taps and shower heads use only a fraction of water compared to their conventional counterparts. These are comparable pricewise, make a huge impact on the amount of water used in your home (your utility bill will thank you later!) and do not diminish water pressure.
When the time comes to sell your home, these eco-friendly fixtures will give your home a competitive edge so consider purchasing energy efficient models when renovating your bathroom.
Consider open shelves
Open shelving can create the illusion of space in smaller square footage, and put a less strain on your renovation budget than cabinets. A few drawers or covered baskets on high shelves can house your private items, and other items don't have to hide in a dark closet any longer!
Choose the right lighting
Lighting plays an enormous role in creating a relaxing atmosphere as well as laying out the function of the bathroom space. If your bathroom has a bathtub consider a dimmer switch in order to set a peaceful mood when it's time for a relaxing soak. Similarly, don't forget about task lighting around the vanity mirror for getting ready in the morning.
Increase your ventilation
The amount of times the bathroom fan is full of dust and makes a loud whirling sound is unbelievable. High ventilation not only helps reduce condensation, it will also help prevent your ceiling paint from bubbling and spore of mold from growing.
Invest in a fan with a timer switch that can run up to 15 minutes after you've stepped out of the shower. Remember that the larger square footage bathroom require more CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) of air exchange.
