Add Value to Your Home by Upgrading Your Bathroom

According to Remodeling Magazine’s editorial director, Sal Alfano, “Kitchen and bathroom remodels continue to be two of the best investments you can make in your house.” Easy bathroom upgrades would definitely reduce home improvement stress.

When most people think about remodeling a bathroom, they see dollar signs flashing before their eyes. And that’s often the end of it. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Bathroom on a Budget: Quick & Easy


Easy bathroom upgrades can include:

  • New paint
  • New curtains, bath mat and shower curtain
  • Replacing fixtures such as faucets, drains, and towel bars

A mid-range budget remodel adds:

  • Updating the vanity – Depending on what kind of vanity you currently have, this could mean painting or refacing it. Lower in cost than replacing a vanity, the results and savings of refacing can be dramatic.
  • New sink and countertop – A one-piece countertop and sink vanity topper can be less expensive than purchasing them separately.
  • New toilet – Choosing one of the newer dual flushing toilets saves money on water.

Other upgrades that can be done include:

  • Tub & shower – With all the HGTV remodeling programs, Jacuzzi and soaker tubs with separate showers have become very popular. That said, a new tub/shower combination is less expensive and will still be a beautiful upgrade with a solid return on investment if you’re replacing an outdated one.
  • Updating your bathroom floor – If you dream of radiant heating, we can help you with that.
  • Adding storage with linen closets and medicine cabinets
  • Showing off your sense of style with a beautiful new mirror

Something to remember when considering easy bathroom upgrades is that you don’t have to do it all at the same time. Look at your current bathroom and decide which one or two fixtures need to be replaced first. It’s amazing what just a few new items will do to brighten up your space.
