Selling your home for a fair price is tricky in the current housing market. Completing a few key bath remodel projects could help you attract a committed buyer. Not all projects provide a big boost to your home’s total value. Darci Swisher’s article on Interest.com says that homeowners that make midrange improvements to the bathroom tend to recoup about 62% of the money they invest when the home is sold.
Nearly all tubs eventually become scuffed and stained after decades of regular use. Replacing the shower stall or bathtub is relatively easy because the plumbing rarely needs modifications if you want to keep it in the same place. An attractive and easy to clean glass shower stall can encourage buyers who weren’t enamoured with your dingy acrylic bathtub.
Even the toughest flooring takes a lot of extra wear in the bathroom. Humidity warps wood and encourages staining mold to grout in the grout between tiles. Removing the existing floor and replacing it with a fresh new look is relatively easy. If your current bathroom floor is unattractive due to stains or damage, new fixtures and better lighting won’t be enough to make the space feel clean and welcoming.
Most home bathrooms are relatively small, and many are located far from exterior walls that could contain windows. Adding extra lighting helps the space seem larger without requiring you to invest in demolition to physical expand the room. Look for focused fixtures to highlight the best features and help the new residents apply makeup or shave each morning.
