If you are considering selling your home you may be searching for ways to increase the value of the house. According to the National Board of Realtors, a bathroom remodeling project can significantly increase the value of your home, provided a few guidelines are followed. While bathroom makeovers can play a significant role in increasing the value of a home, there are a few factors that will affect whether a renovation will be a wise investment. The cost of the bathroom remodeling project must be weighed carefully. Depending on factors such as market conditions and the value of similar homes in your neighborhood, the cost of remodeling the bath may not add enough value to your home to justify the expense of the project. A bathroom renovation is a big investment of time and money. Begin by getting estimates from reputable and established plumbing companies. It will do you no good to spend $15,000 on a bathroom remodeling job if the plumbing contractor doesn’t produce quality results. Be sure to thoroughly discuss your visions for your new bath with your contractor. Bear in mind, it is always the most cost efficient to install new bath fixtures in the same spots as the old ones, to avoiding having to run new water pipes and lines. However, before you decide to install larger bathroom fixtures be sure to ask your contractor if the bathroom has enough floor space, or if you will need to create a new floor plan to accommodate the new fixtures. If a full bathroom makeover doesn’t seem economically feasible, based on the renovation cost compared to the added value, you can give a dated bathroom a facelift with only a few updates. Consider adding a separate shower, double sinks or a new whirlpool tub. Finally, a bathroom renovation project must follow all local building codes, and this is an area where a reputable plumbing contractor will be sure all the necessary permits are secured. The last thing you need is to find out that your contractor tried to cut a corner he shouldn’t have. Ready to improve the looks of your Orlando home's bathroom?
