The Top 10 Ways To Easily Unlock Hidden Value In Your Home’s Old Bathroom

A bathroom renovation is one of the best ways to add value to your home. If you are looking to sell your home, next to the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most important places where potential buyers will look for value. And even if you are not thinking about selling your home, updating your bath is just a great way to improve your quality of life. After all, where do you begin and end your day? Not everything you do to your bathroom will add value, so you have to be choosy. With that in mind, here are some updates you can make to your bathroom to add some real value to your home and to your life.

Classic is Classy

No matter what your style, if you can go for a classic design, your bathroom will retain its value much, much longer. How often do you plan on renovating your bath? If you get something that is too trendy or specific, it may be out of style before you are even done renovating. Go for a simple, classic design. It will still be appealing years down the road.

Stick With a Neutral Palette

You may love the colour red, but looking at a red shower every day may get to be a bit much even for the most ardent connoisseur of colour. A better way to go is to design your bathroom with a neutral colour palette. Earth-inspired tones will feel more harmonious not only for you but for potential buyers if you are interested in selling. And if you need bright colours, buy towels or a shower curtain that satisfies your craving. It is so much easier to replace a shower curtain when you are tired of looking at it than it is to re-tile your bathroom every time your mood changes. 

Think Style & design the will hold appeal over time to multiple buyers

Additional Sink Space

It is entirely likely you do not have your own personal bathroom. Chances are that you share that bath with one or more family members. If you only have one sink in your bathroom currently, how much would adding a second sink speed up the morning routine? If you can manage the space, adding a double vanity sink will not only give you more space but will give you more value. Two people can brush their teeth or their hair at the same time. 

Additional Storage Space

If you do add that double vanity in place of the single you used to have, you will be doubling your under-sink storage space. But the vanity is not the only place where you can add storage. You can always find somewhere to add shelving whether in a corner or on a wall. And if you are lucky enough to have a storage closet in the bathroom, it may benefit from a little updating as well. Things such as drawers, bins and storage racks can improve the storage capacity of any space whether under the sink or in the closet.

Light It Up

Not only can upgrading your lighting fixtures add a touch of class to your décor but adding more light can make the space appear larger. You can add recessed lighting overhead, sconces or new fixtures around mirrors. For fixtures that can be seen, make sure that they fit into your overall design scheme. Do not be afraid to pay for a nicer fixture. It does not cost that much more but can really add to your bathroom's appeal.

Functional upgrades like storage, and lighting are great option to add value to any space.

Shower

Not only is a shower head about look, it is also about feel. A good shower head is worth the investment. A shower head with a “rain” setting can feel like a luxury. There are also low flow shower heads that help to conserve water. If you are worried about your water bill, consider an eco-friendly shower head for your bath. Take careful stock of your options before choosing. 

Faucets

Faucets are fixtures that contribute to the overall aesthetic of your bathroom as much as the lighting fixtures. Your faucets should be sealed and watertight. A leaky faucet will turn off homeowners as much as potential buyers. You should also look for a visually pleasing faucet. Chrome and shiny finishes are difficult to keep shiny looking. Brushed nickel and tarnished copper are beautiful and easier to care for as they do not show fingerprints.

Tiles, Tiles Everywhere

Tile is a great way to maintain visual interest and give your bath a sturdy, easy-to-clean finish. You can have larger tiles on the floor and penny tiles in the shower. You can create patterns, add decorative pieces among plain tiles, use ceramic or marble tile or do any number of things. Tile can give your bath a high-end feel without breaking the bank. 

Paint: A Little Can Go a Long Way

If you do not have much to put into renovations, paint is a simple way to make a radical change without breaking the bank. You can change the colours of the walls. Can't afford new cabinets? Paint can allow you to freshen up cabinets or the vanity, making old things new again. Paint your bathroom a lighter shade to make the space look bigger and give it an airy feel. 

Small details make a big difference in your bathroom renovation.

Hardware

Like faucets, hardware such as door knobs and drawer pulls can do a lot to add to the overall aesthetic of the space. Paired with a little paint, it can be a low-cost way to make an old vanity new again. Paint your vanity with a glossy finish paint and then add new pulls to the drawers and doors to give your bathroom a completely new vanity at a minimum of expense.

Homeowners who renovate their bathrooms are estimated to receive a 75% return on their investment when they sell their homes. Renovating your bath can make the improve your home's appeal to potential buyers. If you want to add value to your home, both for yourself now, and potential buyers in the future don’t hesitate to book your free in-home consultation where we can work with you to design your dream bathroom.

Two sinks can mean you and your partner each have your own space and can get ready at the same time.
2. New porcelain tile : Harder than ceramic ,Porcelain tile is a popular choice for bathroom floors. Porcelain is easier to clean, a denser, more porous, harder option that offers greater stain and water resistance than ceramic tile. It also hold up to a lot of foot traffic so will last for years. Also, it’s suitable for radiant in-floor heat to keep feet toasty on cool mornings. Porcelain also offers unmatched design versatility. Tiles can mimic natural stone varieties, such as granite and limestone.
3. Walk in showers :A stand alone shower no longer means a glass door on a track. Now it means a frameless, doorless shower, sometimes called a wet room that can showcases tile work and can accommodate an elaborate, spa-like shower system.A lot more people are requesting European themed showers they can walk right into.

A dream bathroom vrs reality

There’s often a division between the bathroom of your dreams and the reality of what you presently have ,but it doesn’t have to remain that way. With a little imagination and a few creative basics, you can achieve the look you want at an affordable price, easier than you might think.
In design , there is never just one way to do things, there’s only the way that’s right for you.Finding it isn’t hard.Just trust your tastes and follow your instincts.Be creative in our choices of the little things ,and keep in mind that it doesn’t  take much to make a dramatic change in a bathroom. From the smallest powder room to the largest ensuite , every space offers individual opportunities for style.Updating a bathroom is as much a process of planning as of decorating.The fact hat your space maybe limited can be an advantage because it means that even the smallest details will go a long way.

WET ROOM

What is a Wet room?
Wet Rooms are waterproofed bathroom rooms typically equipped with a walk in shower. The wet room itself becomes the shower enclosure, with a shower drain inset into a gently sloped floor in place of a usual shower base. This means that wet rooms have to be fully waterproofed to prevent leaks so this may not be a DIY install. It would be best to have a professional company like Beautiful-baths to do the job for peace of mind and a warranty.
Wet rooms are very practical for people with mobility issues as they eliminate the need to step up into a shower cubicle and over a sometimes steep threshold. They are also considered to be very stylish and so if you want to create a cool, modern look in your bathroom, they could be a good option to consider because there are plenty of design options available.
Another reason wet rooms are popular is because they can help you to save space if you only have a small bathroom. They mean that you don’t need to have a shower cubicle, which can constrict movement in a small room, and you don’t need a bathtub if you don’t want to. Wet room can also be handy for bathing pets which some home owners with dogs like.
