How Updating your bathroom boosts property value

Have an itch to remodel or update a few fixtures to your current bathroom? You may be surprised that whatever route you take, spending money essentially ends up benefiting your bathroom to help boost your property value. You get to enjoy the beautiful, finished product and in the long run, you get your investment back. Read about ways on how bathroom updates help with the investment that buyers now look for.


Buyers Look for Remodels when Buying

You may think to yourself, “It's just a bathroom with a sink and toilet, why update it?” As times have changed, so have the way buyers look for specific details in bathrooms when buying. For example, gone are the days when tacky wallpaper and outdated tile make their way to the want list. Buyers instead now look for conveniences such as his and her sink for ample personal space, a tub with built-in jets after a long day for a pamper session and seating inside walk-in showers for ultimate comfort.


Fixtures Matter

Even if your bathroom has features as listed above, the main focus is always on the bathroom fixtures, which are what ultimately sells. Nobody wants to personally invest in accessories because they expect the bathroom to already have those built-ins included. Things like faucets, mirrors, lighting and vanities should be new or modern. This saves time and money for buyers who might have to worry about these upgrades and who want to know they’re getting the best bang for their buck. For example, do not invest in a regular showerhead as these are far from boosting the value. Go for handheld, extendable showerheads that also have different shower settings for a luxury shower experience.


Flooring is the Main Selling Point

An overview of showcasing any bathroom calls for flooring and tile as the main selling point. They are also the most used installation and are most susceptible to mold and mildew. It is therefore essential to invest in excellent quality flooring and tile that is easy to clean and has impressive designs and colors that will help boost property value. For example, staying with a neutral color palette instead of bold colors is safer to sell because it is a timeless look and considered an evergreen investment. Even if you do not plan on selling your home anytime soon, updating your bathroom is aesthetically pleasing, elevates your space and can increase your property value each year that passes.
