Both kitchens and baths are the two rooms known that can add the most value to your domicile. Bathroom home improvement is often overlooked. Don't let a dated bath stop the sale of your residence. Begin restoring it immediately.
Be forewarned that a bath remodel can be expensive. A complete redo will involve flooring, fixtures, cabinets, and plumbing. Keep an eye open for sales or discontinued items. It will be a difficult job, but one that will pay off handsomely.
First, make up a list of dos and don'ts. Not everything will require complete replacement. Many items can be simply restored with a bit of paint and stylish hardware.
Tubs and showers can be updated too without replacing them. Resurfacing has become very popular where removing a tub is nearly impossible. Yet you may have to forgo the jets and whirlpools of the more modern ones.
Walls that once only had paint, can be completely redone with tile. There are endless styles to choose from. The entire room can be transformed into a place of beauty. If any room can be complimented with entire walls of tile, it is the bathroom.
Newer model toilets have wide price ranges. All are made to save on water and some will flush on their own. If the one you have is working well, it does not have to be replaced, but an old model can ruin all of the other efforts you have made.
When completed, you have probably spent a good deal of money on your remodel. Home improvement is often expensive. Yet redoing the bath will net you a return in the higher value of your home.
