How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Increase a Home’s Value?

The bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in your home both by the people that live in the home and guests that visit the home. If your bathroom feels outdated or has seen better days, you’re not alone! The heavy use and constantly changing trends in bathroom design mean your bathroom should be at the top of your remodeling to-do list. Rather you’re planning to sell your home in a couple of months or years from now, an upgraded bathroom will lead to a higher list price and more interested buyers. 

How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

The first question on any homeowner’s mind is about the cost of a bathroom remodel. Luckily, there’s no set cost! You can spend as much or as little as you want to in your bathroom remodel. The more you spend, the bigger the changes. Small changes like new light fixtures, new faucets, and a fresh coat of paint all come with relatively low-price tags while still having a big impact on the space. If you have a bigger budget or are looking for a more drastic change, you can invest in things like new flooring, cabinets, and the tub or shower. Set your desired budget at the start of the project. Then, an experienced contractor can help determine what remodeling options will fit into that budget. 

Does it Really Increase Resale Value? 

The short answer is yes, remodeling your bathroom is sure to increase resale value! There’s no set amount to say a bathroom remodel will raise your resale value X amount of dollars. The housing market, the location of your home, and the condition of the rest of the home all play a role in the resale value of your home. Bathrooms and kitchens are known to be the most important rooms for potential buyers. An upgraded bathroom will bring more potential buyers and increase the price you can list your home at. Any investment made in your bathroom will have a good return on investment when you decide to sell the home. Keep this in mind when you’re setting the budget for your remodel – it may be worth investing a little more to make a lot more back when you decide to sell!
