That might be a good idea!
Doing so can increase the value of your home and make the home easier to sell and more appealing to buyers. But we don’t recommend remodeling your bathroom only to sell easier and for more money — the average bathroom remodels costs about $20,000 and the average homeowner only recoups 66% of that cost when they sell.
So it’s not really worth it if you’re only looking to increase the value of your home. It might be worth it, however, if you’re going to live in the home for a while longer before you sell — that way, you can enjoy your new bathroom! If you do decide to renovate, here are some tips!
- Create a Budget — The first thing you should do is create a budget… that way you know how much you’re willing to spend before you dive into the weeds.
- Hire a Professional — Definitely hire a professional for your bathroom remodel unless you’re a total expert. It’s an expensive investment and you don’t want it to get messed up.
- Choose Durability — When you have the choice between cheap material and durable material, choose durability. It’ll probably be more expensive but it’ll also make your new bathroom last longer. (think marble or granite vs. laminate or formica)
