Remodel ROI ConsiderationsFirstly, we’ll talk briefly about the difference between a minor and major bath makeover. Major involves a complete gut and replacement of almost every fixture. While a minor leaves most things in place, with just a few key changes.
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.’ —HouseLogic.comWhat you should know is that a minor remodel typically returns a higher ROI. And, it’s less costly, of course. But, you can’t just update one bath and not the others (unless you plan to stay put for a while and will get to the others later on). That’s because, if you plan to resell, if only one bathroom is updated, buyers will balk. Now, well get more into the nuts-and-bolts of the project.
Minor Bath Makeover Tips in Cape CoralFirst, you should start with decluttering the space as much as possible. The less stuff that’s lying around, the more visual appeal the space will exude. Also, it gives the bathroom a sense of more room, also a plus. Here are some more minor bath makeover tips you can use:
- Replace the faucet. This takes just a little amount of time but makes a big impact. If you really want to make a visual impact, replace the sink and the faucet. You’ll be amazed at how different and better it looks.
- Re-caulk around the sink and shower. Caulk prevents moisture from doing damage but it wears over time and begins to shrink and crack. Like grout, it can likewise become discolored, so, cut out the old and apply new caulk where it’s needed.
- Replace the bathroom floor rug. Instead of replacing the flooring, just lay down a new rug. This is a great alternative to total replacement. (Unless the floor is just too out-of-date.)
- Replace hand towels and guest soaps. Just like the rug, the hand towels and guest soaps wear. Get new hand towels and guest soaps that go with the decor and you’ll see a big difference.
