Adding Value: 4 Bathroom Upgrade Tips

A bathroom upgrade is a simple and cost-effective way to add value to your home. Here are four tips to help you get the most out of your investment:

1. Lighting is Everything

Having proper lighting can make a world of difference. When it comes to lighting, think layers. Add light where it’s needed the most, and use light creatively to control the tone of the room. White light is usually best, since it renders all skin tones most accurately, which is important when it comes to grooming.

2. Be Paint Smart

Use lighter, neutral tones in smaller spaces to create the appearance of more space. A semi-gloss finish (preferably mildew-resistant) is best to combat moisture-related issues that can be common in bathrooms.

3. Choose the Right Flooring

Plan ahead of time for the type of floor to fit your needs and budget. Many choose tile, but did you know that hardwood flooring (moisture-sealed, of course) is an option? Also, for maximum comfort, think about heated floors. Both hydronic and radiant heating systems have become much more affordable in recent years.

4. Fixate on Fixtures

Don’t let outdated amenities ruin the look, feel and efficiency of your bathroom. Choose storage solutions that maximize available space. Using eco-friendly showers and toilets will help you save money and positively impact the environment.
