Contractors Can Improve Your Home

Hello! I would like to give you the warmest welcome to my blog. My name is Pete and last year, I decided to carry out some home improvements. Somewhat foolishly, I decided to try and carry out the work myself. As you can imagine, it was a bit of a disaster as I do not have many skills. Thankfully, I have a friend who works in the construction and contracting service. He called in some of his friends who were able to come in and fix up the mess I had made. I am really pleased with the results so I thought I would write about it here.

4 Bathroom Renovation Ideas to Make Your Home Attractive for Buyers

by Regina Barnett

A bathroom remodel can deliver a good ROI, depending on how you plan and execute it. Knowing what today's home buyers are looking for is a good starting point, as you'll know what features will make your home attractive to buyers.

Here are some bathroom renovation ideas that will increase the chance of a speedy sale (and boost your home's pre-listing value).

1. Paint the Walls

Nothing works wonders for the attractiveness of a dull-looking bathroom like painting the walls. Since the bathroom is a moisture-prone area of the house, use water-repellant paint to achieve a durable finish. 

As for the paint colour, go with a shade that complements the hallway leading to the bathroom. Lighter shades make smaller bathrooms look bigger while dark shades add a dramatic effect to sizeable bathrooms. 

Keep in mind that painting will not work for bathroom tiles, but you can clean and repaint the grout to make the tiles look nice.

2. Add a New Vanity

If you have a sizeable bathroom, you can improve its functionality by adding a freestanding or floating vanity to it. This will ensure you have an extra sink for use during peak hours of the day and some extra storage space for bathroom essentials. 

Bathroom vanities are available in a range of sizes, colours and finishes so you can find something that fits well and looks nice in your bathroom.

3. Replace Old Water Fixtures

If you still haven't figured it out, hard water can completely ruin the aesthetics of your taps, showerheads, and other water fixtures by leaving permanent stains on them. 

A great way to transform your bathroom instantly is to get rid of the old water fixtures and replace them with stylish ones. You can find plenty of these at your local hardware store. Make sure you choose products that don't detract from other design elements in your bathroom.

4. Install a Mirrored Medicine Cabinet

If you fancy an extra storage cabinet that comes combined with a stylish bathroom, then you should consider a mirrored medicine cabinet. This medicine cabinet can be used to store toiletries while doubling up as a functional mirror that helps with your personal grooming routines. 

When it comes to bathroom renovation, there are several things you can do to increase your home's resale value. You just have to work out what remodels will deliver the highest ROI. Contact a bathroom renovation contractor near you if you need help with your project.
