Thinking of remodeling your Atherton Bathroom with R&M Builders? Well, what are you waiting for? The time is now and the professionals at R&M are ready to help.
Simple renovations, like a bathroom, can give your home a much needed face lift. If you're looking to sell your home, bathroom remodeling can also help this effort, as outdated restrooms are known to stop a potential sale dead in its tracks--or simply turn away otherwise interested buyers.
The biggest benefit to remodeling a bathroom is quite obvious: Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it can increase the overall value of your home. As you plan your renovation, make sure to keep in mind today's trends, and assess if those same design elements will have a lasting impact into the future.
Some things to consider are:
Will this color accent wall still be desirable in five years?
What about ten years?
What are your thoughts on wallpaper? If you decide to remove it in a few years will you curse yourself for putting it up in the first place?
Make sure to give specific design elements some serious thought before signing off on a final plan. That said, a renovation is certainly the perfect opportunity to create a perfect oasis.
A prime benefit of changing the aesthetic of any room in your house--the bathroom included--is to create a welcoming, peaceful space that is uniquely perfect for your tastes and desires. The important thing to remember here is that the sky is the limit.
Feel free to use textures and colors that appeal to you and promote relaxation. This is a space you want to love--it's a space you should feel comfortable in!
Improved efficiency is also a major highlight. When you replace outdated faucets or add state of the art technology (for example a new water heater or water efficient toilets) your bills will automatically reflect these added energy efficiencies.
Additionally, if you plan to stay in your home well into old age, the renovation process is a ideal time to create a restroom that will be accessible and useful into your later years. Think about your eventual desire for wider doorways or even a luxurious, walk-in bathtub, and discuss available options with your builder.
Bathroom renovations are also a really great way to organize and reduce clutter. You can work with your builder to easily increase existing storage capacity or add closet space. There is a myriad of designs now available to meet your cabinetry needs--however small or large your bathroom space may be.
While planning, make sure to discuss the amount of space you will need for towels, hair and body care products, cleaners and medicines with your builder.
The best part of the whole process? A bathroom upgrade is one of the best ways to increase your home's value--and look--with relatively little work and money.
