If you know anything about home resale, you know that kitchens and bathrooms are often considered the most important rooms when it comes to attracting buyers. You’ll get the most bang for your buck by upgrading these rooms. If you are considering bathroom remodeling in your Denver home, you’ll not only improve your own quality of life and enjoyment, but you will also get a good portion of the money back when it comes time to sell your home. According to US News & World Report’s article 10 Home Renovations With the Best Return on Investment
, bathrooms will net homeowners more than half of their investment when they sell their homes. Plus, having an attractive bathroom—especially for the master bath—often means less time on the market.
But because remodeling a bathroom is such a big project, you want to keep it as simple as possible—and here are some tips to keep in mind.
Plan Your Project Ahead of Time
Whether you are doing the entire project yourself or if you are hiring professionals for some or all of the work, you want to plan your project well before it gets started. Figure out exactly what you’ll be replacing and what—if anything—you’ll be keeping.
Make sure your budget is set ahead of time as well. According to HomeAdvisor.com’s article How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Bathroom
, the average cost of a bathroom remodeling is just under $10,000. This is a sizable chunk of money for most homeowners.
Spend Some Time Gathering Inspiration
Find out what you like—and what you don’t like—by looking at showrooms or magazines. (Be sure to come to the HTI Granite showroom
!) Watch home improvement shows on television. Start a Pinterest board for ideas on bathroom fixtures, mirrors, lighting, and so forth.
It might not be a bad idea to schedule a consultation with an interior designer who can not only help with design ideas but can also bring up ideas about things you might not have considered.
Keep Ventilation in Mind
Although not a very glamourous aspect of your bathroom remodel, ventilation is something you will need to keep in mind. Protecting your investment from the normal bathroom humidity is important.
Decide What You’ll Do Yourself—and What You’ll Outsource
The more work you can do yourself, the more money you’ll save on your bathroom remodel. But if you bite off more than you can chew, it can end up costing you. So be realistic about your abilities.
