Looking to upgrade your bathroom?  Keep this in mind!

Many homeowners are looking to upgrade their baths or kitchens to add value to their home at sale time.  But what should you really include in a bathroom upgrade to get a great return on your investment?  Take these tips into consideration:

  1. New tiling.  An easy and inexpensive option to truly change the whole look of your room! Some contractors can even install heated flooring so your tile stays nice and toasty during the winter months.
  2. Upgrade your vanity.  Vanities have come a long way in the past several years.  Once you’ve decided on the look for your bathroom, research all the options for your vanity.  Do you want one or two sinks? Looking for a modern or farmhouse feel? What color would accent your wall and tile color? Will you use regular basins or above counter bowls?
  3. Add storage.  One thing missing from many bathrooms is adequate storage.  This has a terrific return on investment as most home buyers love the idea of cute and efficient storage options; whether they are tucked into an otherwise wasted space, or encompass a full linen type closet.  Work with the options best suited for the space you have.  We love using baskets on shelves for design, storage, and efficiency.
  4. A bit of luxury.  Everyone wants to feel like they’ve entered a ‘spa’ when they're in their bathroom, so pay attention to luxurious extra’s that aren’t lavish.  Think a jacuzzi tub, heated towel warmers, soft lighting and cozy accents.
