Remodeling your bathroom is one of the best ways to get a return on your investment. But let’s be realistic, most of us have to plan a renovation within a strict budget. While there are many ways to save money during your remodel, you shouldn’t sacrifice in the wrong places. Since your bathroom is one of the most commonly used rooms in your home, It’s important to invest in a bathroom that lasts. Here are some features that are definitely worth investing in.
Faucets: Your bathroom is only as useful as it’s effectiveness. Make sure you don’t skimp on a faucet that sticks, fades or peels, which will only lead to you having to repair or replace it down the line. When choosing a faucet, make sure to select one that isn’t too hard to turn on or off and is made from a material that will withstand the wear and tear from years of water exposure.
Toilet: Your toilet is the most important thing in your bathroom, since it’s the main appliance there. If your toilet is broken or leaking, it’s time for a replacement. Invest in a higher quality toilet from the get-go to keep repair and replacement costs down and to keep your bathroom working efficiently.
Tub or Shower: Your shower should be your time for relaxation and unwinding. Choosing a tub or shower is one of the most important decisions you will have to make regarding your bathroom remodel. Do you have small children that require baths in the tub? Or is your bathroom primarily used for an elderly person who may have a hard time stepping into the tub to shower? These are factors to consider. Aside from an aesthetic feature, make your decision on what material is most suitable for the needs of your family and will last over time.
Flooring: It’s crucial to choose a flooring that will minimize slipping, and be resistant to the heat, steam and water damage of your bathroom. Now isn’t a time to skimp, because your safety is at risk. A heated floor is a big luxury in the bathroom and not necessarily a huge expense to add. Not only will this feature keep your feet warm after a relaxing shower, but will attract buyers should you decide to sell your home.
