Bathroom 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.’ —House Logic.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.
Pittsburg Minor Bathroom Remodel TipsBefore you begin, you should have the cleaning supplies for the tile and grout because that’s where you’ll finish. You should consider repainting the vanity or refinishing it to give it a whole new look. Or, you can opt to replace the vanity altogether. But, you can do other things that don’t require as much work or money:
- 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.
- Re-caulk the sink and shower. You’ve probably noticed the sink and shower caulk looks a bit old and worn. You can re-caulk the sink and shower to fix that and make it look new again.
- 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 (Unless the floor is just too out-of-date.)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. Another subtle change with big impact is to replace the hand towels, the racks, and those dusty guest soaps.
