Remodeling A Bathroom to Sell A House

It may be the smallest room in the house, but it often leaves the greatest impression on buyers. If you’re thinking about remodeling a bathroom to sell a house, you are in good company. Real estate professionals often suggest allocating part of your remodeling budget on updating bathroom fixtures, painting and changing light fixtures. An inviting master bathroom can impress potential buyers.

Before you get involved in shopping the aisles at Lowe’s or Home Depot, get out your calculator and do some preliminary arithmetic. Taking the time to estimate remodeling costs is time well spent. It may be the most important time you spend on the bathroom remodel, even if you plan to do all the work yourself.

Estimating the cost of each part of a bathroom remodel is important for two reasons: 1) making certain you have enough money set aside to complete the project, not just get it started; and 2) determining if you will recover your remodeling costs when the time comes to sell your home, and not spend more than you should.

Wants vs Needs in Bathroom Remodeling

It’s easy to get inspiration from the beautiful bathrooms pictured online and in printed magazines. While a little inspiration is a good thing, too much inspiration can easily lead to overspending on a bathroom remodeling project. Just because you love the look of twelve-inch ceramic tiles on shower walls and floors doesn’t mean that design feature is appropriate for your own home. A bathroom remodel needs to fit in the context of the entire house, no matter how much you may want those twelve-inch tiles.

Even if you have no plans to sell your house in the near future, thinking ahead to the day you will be ready to sell it helps you make better remodeling decisions now. Planning for your eventual home sale is a good way to keep your bathroom remodeling budget in a practical, sensible price range. Choosing a reasonably-priced shower enclosure instead of installing those twelve-inch ceramic tiles can make all the difference in the cost of your new bathroom.
