Remodeling and updating a bathroom is among the top investments one can make to a home in order to increase overall resale value quickly. Updating and bathroom remodeling in Lake Stevens can significantly increase the ascetic appeal to a residence, as well as help to make the decision easier for any future potential buyers to purchase the property.
Updating a bathroom is not a task which should be completed half way or unprofessionally, and the results when completed should speak for themselves both in beauty and in functionality. The following tips allow for the most luxurious bathroom renovations in order to yield optimal investment return.
Increase the Space
If a bathroom feels claustrophobic and there is enough space to expand it, the financial reward can be significant. With more room available, a world of possibilities opens up which could include a sitting area, larger spa tub, or a dedicated makeup space. Enlarging a bathroom makes way for a large variety of luxurious bathroom additions and feels much more grand.
Quality Matching Fixtures
One of the most cost effective ways to attain the most striking bathroom remodeling results is to install high quality bathroom fixtures which are built to last. Select a shower head, faucets and other fixture components from the same reputable brand and with matching finishes. Don’t forget to check the water usage of shower heads and faucets for the environmentally friendly remodel. Poor quality fixtures can rust in damp bathroom conditions and appear of lesser quality.
Choose fixtures which provide radiant and clean lighting. A bathroom should be bright and the proper lighting fixtures can make all the difference. Consider LED’s in all fixtures which last longer than traditional bulbs, are more energy efficient, and provide a brighter appearance.
Upgrade your Vanity
In many cases depending on the material, a vanity can be sanded, re-painted and updated to appear brand new again. This inexpensive project can make a significant difference to the appearance of any bathroom, and is a huge cost saver compared to purchasing a brand new vanity. New knobs can be installed as well making the original vanity almost unrecognizable. If you wish to forgo a vanity all-together, consider installing a porcelain pedestal sink which provides a elegant look and extra space.
Serene and Clean Atmosphere
Opt for an open, airy feel when choosing bathroom lighting, paint, and décor. A frosted window or skylights can help brighten the area, while creating an inviting atmosphere. When painting, choose light, natural tones over darker and brighter colors to convey a more serene and calming space. Items such as bath towels, shower curtains, mats, and other accessories can be interchanged based on a person’s preferences and can help to elevate the aesthetic appeal of the room.
A separate, small toilet room is ideal, especially in a large bathroom where the space can accommodate for such. If an enclosed toilet room is not possible, consider installing a partition which can provide privacy as well.
