Many Lake Havasu City homeowners are looking for ways to add value to their properties. Kitchen remodels are always good but often tend to be quite costly. Instead, focus on a smaller area that will give you a great return on investment. Add value to a Lake Havasu home with a bathroom upgrade.
Buyers in today's Lake Havasu real estate market are looking for energy-efficient alternatives. As a plus, while you are still in the home, you will be saving money on your energy costs as well. Low-flow toilets, shower heads and faucets can be installed over the course of a weekend. These water-saving features are great items to highlight when selling a home here in the desert.
Another way to set your bathroom apart from those in other Havasu homes is by creating a central focus. For example, replacing the old tub/shower insert with a claw foot tub evokes a romantic feeling. Take out the sink cabinet and replace it with a free-standing basin. Replace your old gold tone fixtures with brushed nickel or bronze finishes. Take out the rectangular medicine cabinet and replace it with a beautiful mirror enhanced by new lighting.
Storage is always at a premium. So, think about investing in storage cabinets that add space without making your bathroom appear smaller.
Sometimes, simply changing the color scheme by adding new paint and/or textured wallpaper, window treatments and soft towels can make a world of difference for little money. Create the feeling of a luxurious spa right in your Lake Havasu home by sprinkling a few candles throughout and using soft blues and sea green colors. Roll up a few towels and place them around the tub.
You can add value to a Lake Havasu home with a bathroom upgrade. This is usually much less expensive than a kitchen remodel. Some upgrades can be done in just one weekend and will only cost you a few hundred dollars rather than several thousand. You will definitely see a positive return on your investment when it comes time to sell in the future.
