Make Renovating Your Bathroom Your Primary 2013 Resolution

In the recent years the homebuyer’s primary focus has shifted from the kitchen to the bathroom. Giving your bathroom the boost that you desire doesn’t always require a lot of money, just the right planning and the right professionals. Not only does renovating the bathroom add value to the home, but it also makes the homeowner enjoy his or her home even more.  If a person is about to renovate the bathroom in his or her home, there are a few tips that he or she should keep in mind

Labor

A person must decide if he or she can do the work alone or if he or she will need to hire a contractor.  Depending on your area, you may make a different decision regarding your bathroom remodeling. If you are in an expensive area such as NY real estate, the cost can outweigh the benefit.  Doing the work alone can save the person a considerable amount of money, and the extra money can allow the person to purchase better and more expensive material.  On the other hand, the last thing that you want to do is break a pipeline or make some sort or permanent damage. The bathroom is without a doubt the room in the house where there is the most potential to go wrong. If a contractor is hired, the person will not have to worry about not being able to complete certain parts of the project.  Renovating a bathroom is not a beginner’s job; therefore, if the person is not experienced in home renovations, things could get messy. For this reason, the first tip is to always hire a professional.

Lighting

A bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the home, and it is one of the most important rooms in the home.  However, it is also one of the smallest rooms in the home.  As a result, if a bathroom does not have much light, then it will look smaller than it really is.  On the other hand, if the bathroom has a lot of light, then it will look larger than it really is.  Therefore, the homeowner should be sure to add lots of light in the renovation.  Light can be natural light from windows or sunroofs, or the light can be from light fixtures.  Regardless, if there is a lot of light, the bathroom will not appear to be cluttered or small.

Bathtub, toilet, and sink

Adding an additional bathroom to your home whether it be a half bath or full, will add significant value to your home. Depending on the other features of your home, a half bath can add approximately 11 percent to a homes value, while a full bath can bring up to an additional 20 percent. The bathtub, toilet, and sink are the three most important elements of the bathroom.  Therefore, it is important to choose style and elegance when choosing these three.  There are many different selections of bathtubs, toilets, and sinks; therefore, the person should not have any trouble finding three that complement one another.  If the three don’t match, your bathroom will look sub par. These items don’t always need to be replaced a simple refinish can do wonders. But ultimately, if you want your bathroom looking as wonderful and relaxing as the one you saw in that magazine that inspired this change, you may want to look into replacements.

Ventilation

Last but not least, it is extremely important to ensure install a vent fan of appropriate CFM’s for the square footage of your bathroom. The last thing that you want to happen is for moisture to build up and allow mold or mildew to grow. These enemies would make a quick ruin to the renovation that you just took so long to complete.
