Major Bathroom Gut and Remodel ComparisonRather than gut the space completely and redo it all over again, a project which averages $16,128, but returns $11,688, or 72.5 percent, according to Remodeling magazine, you can make small changes. These will have a big impact on the look and feel of this multi-function space. And, bring a higher return on investment for a lot less money.
You dream about a bathroom that’s high on comfort and personal style, but you also want materials, fixtures, and amenities with lasting value. Wake up! You can have both. A mid range bathroom remodel is a solid investment, according to ‘Remodeling’ magazine’s annual ‘Cost vs. Value Report.’ —House LogicIn fact, a minor bathroom remodel is only a fraction of the cost. And, it doesn’t take nearly as long. (This is especially true if you plan to resell in a few years because you’ll recoup your investment.)

Belmont Minor Bathroom Remodeling GuideBefore you begin, you should have the cleaning supplies for the tile and grout because that’s where you’ll finish. Here are some helpful minor bathroom remodeling tips and tricks you can use:
- Replace the faucet. This is a very simple change that does a lot to remake the space. It seems like it’s trivial but it isn’t. Just by replacing the sink faucet, you’re transforming the space in a savvy way.
- Clean the tile and grout. Even though this isn’t exactly remodeling, your bathroom will have a whole different and clean look. Tile and grout become discolored over time and just by deep cleaning these, you’ll see a tremendous difference.
- Re-apply caulk. Another small step but one that offers quite a bit in return aesthetically is to re-apply caulk where it’s needed. It’s a simple fix but one that also has a noticeable impact.
- Replace the rug, towels, and soaps. It’s probably time to update the decor. So, replace the floor rug, purchase a nice set of new hand towels, and change out the guest soaps.
