If you’re thinking about adding a second bathroom for your convenience, and to increase the resell value of your home, consider these four key concepts to make the most of your efforts.
Opt for a Tub Instead of a Shower
You should consider installing a tub in your bathroom addition if your current one has only a shower. Many house hunters want at least one tub in their potential new home, especially if they’ve got young children. The kiddies can’t enjoy bath time with floating toys while standing in a shower.
Install a Free-Standing Tub Instead of an Insert
Although a tub/shower combo is typically cheaper than a free-standing tub with a tile surround it may not have the same impact as a tiled surface, since tile can lend itself to coordinated design schemes that can give your bathroom personality and resonate with buyers.
Keep Things Neutral
This isn’t breaking news, but it bears repeating. Although you want to give your bathroom a sense of style be careful not to alienate buyers with a design that’s overly specific. If your colors are too loud, patterns too busy, and design too trendy, all that buyers will see are changes they’ll have to make should they buy your property. So keep things neutral. Remember, though, that neutral doesn’t mean bland or cookie-cutter. Buyers still appreciate a point of view, just keep them in the picture.
Create an en Suite
Buyers love en suite baths, and if your master bedroom doesn’t have one an addition can offer a great return on investment. Don’t be afraid to go all-out, just watch your bottom line and make sure you don’t over improve for the area where you live. Think: double vanities, and glass shower doors.
