While people have been asked to stay in their homes there has been a spike in home projects and renovations. If you are thinking of re-doing your bathroom, here are some great ideas to give your room an upgrade while thinking about re-sale value if you plan to sell your home in the future.
Re-glaze the Tub
If the tub is tired and could use a facelift consider re-glazing it instead of completely replacing the entire thing. This can save thousands of dollars. As long as the shower/tub area is in decent shape, giving the tub a facelift instead of a complete overhaul is a good alternative and will allow you to focus money on the vanity.
Upgrade the Sink
The vanity is the first thing a buyer will look at and notice in the bathroom. The major focal point of a vanity is the sink. Replace the sink with an upgraded contemporary one. You want to find something that is stylish, but doesn’t go overly trendy or artistic. Find a nice neutral color one that will still allow for easy cleaning and not be awkward to use when you go to brush your teeth or wash your face. You want something that looks nice, is eye-catching, and is up to date. This will allow you to have a nice sink that appeals to a wide range of buyers and it won’t break the bank.

Keep the Tile Timeless
Speaking of appealing to a wider range of buyers, it is very smart to keep the tile neutral and timeless. No matter when you plan to resale the home, now or five years from now, pick a tile that will still look good and be appealing to most people. The classic white subway tile looks great in almost any space and is very budget-friendly. Related: The Difference Between a Remodel and a Renovation
Opt for a Double Vanity
Double vanities, especially in the master bathroom, are a huge selling point. Some buyers include a double vanity in the master bath as a must-have, not a want. This means they will move on to the next house if there is no double vanity. They are looking for the convenience of getting ready for their day without bumping into someone or waiting for someone to get out of the way. If you have the space, it is a good idea to switch out one sink for two.
Think About a Water-Saving Toilet
It is not the most glamorous of bathroom upgrades, but a water-saving toilet can save a good chunk of change. It will also catch the attention of buyers to let them know a newer green toilet was installed. Buyers like green features that will save them money.
