Bathroom Upgrades to Increase Value

bathroom upgrades | plumbing | lancaster PA

Are you thinking about selling your home and want to know how to get the most amount of money for your house? Head into your bathrooms and unbiasedly evaluate each one of them. More than likely you’ll need to make a few upgrades, and that’s what this list will help you figure out.

  1. Double Trouble – The master bathroom is one of the most looked at rooms in the house, behind the kitchen. When a couple shares this bathroom in the mornings and evenings, having just one sink won’t cut it anymore. Consider installing a double sink, as this will be admired by couples looking to move in.
  2. Colorful or Colorless – When upgrading the master bathroom, stick to a white or lighter neutral color for a simple and timeless look. It gives off a classic impression that reminds its users of the relaxing feeling that they might experience at a spa. However, you can opt to choose more eccentric and bold colors for the other bathrooms in your house.
  3. Bathing Styles – Master bathrooms should come equipped with a walk-in shower and separate bathtub; a freestanding tub if possible. For smaller bathrooms, like ones in apartments, upgrade the size of the showerhead for a bigger look. Walk-in showers are extremely popular, but know that if you take out your tub you could be turning off the potential buyers that have small children.
  4. New Thrones – Seeing a brand new toilet will make any potential buyer gush with joy. Replace your 20-something-year-old throne with a white, high-efficiency, comfort-height toilet. These bad boys have a simple look that allows for a comfortable sitting experience and will help lower the monthly water bill.
