Planning Additions to Your Home: Upgrading and Remodeling Your Bath
Upgrading your bath will not only provide you with a more modern and luxurious bath, but it also instantly the value of your home. If you’re looking to sell your home, then one of the key features that home buyers look for is an updated bathroom. Even if you plan on keeping your home, having an upgraded bathroom can help you get more of the features that you desire in a bath.
Usual Additions in a Bathroom
The most common additions for bathrooms are bathtubs or showers if the room doesn’t already have either and a vanity that has storage underneath it. Jacuzzis and soaker tubs are popular fixtures to add as well as a bench in the show. Many people also choose to enclose their toilet to separate the toilet and bathing areas.
Expanding an Existing Bathroom
An existing bathroom can certainly be expanded. Oftentimes, in order to expand an existing bathroom, a bit of space is taken from an adjoining room. For instance, if you have a closet area or an overly large room, you can tap into some of that space to achieve the larger, more spa-like bathroom of your dreams.
Nowadays, more and more people are beginning to invest in heated flooring in their bathrooms. Bathroom tiling can be cold after bathing or showering, but heated flooring can ensure that your toes stay toasty and warm when exiting the tub or shower. Many people add fancier lighting in their bathrooms when upgrading as well, such as a chandelier over the tub or additional wall sconces to add more of a spa-like ambiance.
