Bathrooms are one of the most expensive rooms in the house to renovate. It can make or break a deal when selling or buying a house. Homeowners generally look for the rooms which do not need much work. That is why renovation of a bathroom can make a big impact on the resell value. As you are looking forward to renovating the bathroom, think of the things that work for your family and the things that the other owners might be looking for.
Making the bathroom fit for reselling purposes
These days, walk-in showers and double bathroom sinks are prevalent. Bathroom storages and oversized bath tubs are also in fashion and people look forward to having them in their bathrooms. You must determine how much space you have and what all the things it can accommodate in it, what materials you think are actually worth using and then you must look for the bathroom storages to keep supplies and extra towels etc.
Determining the bathroom layout
There are 2 important things that you must keep in mind when you are renovating:
• Your family
• The future buyers
If your family doesn’t take baths, there is no need to have a bathtub in the bathroom. That space can instead be used to keep large storages or double vanities. On the other hand, some of the buyer may want to have a bath tub. So, you must make sure that there is at least one bath tub in the house. Walk-in showers are also very popular these days, though they take up a lot of space in the bathroom.
The perfect solution is to have a combo of bathtub and the shower. It is the best of both worlds. In case you have a big family, you must separate the shower and the toilet from the wash basin so that more than 1 person can use the bathroom at the same time. In the end, the things that are handy to your family will be handy for the new buyer. So, go for the best that works for you first and head.
