Bathroom Remodel Upgrades That Add Value

Selecting the right bathroom remodel upgrades can add value to both your home and quality of life. However, not taking the time to consider what kinds of upgrades you want can unnecessarily stall your remodeling project or cause buyer’s remorse for an upgrade that adds little to no value. 

Check out Platinum Sand Construction’s upgrade recommendations that will enhance your bathroom’s beauty and function!

6 Bathroom Upgrades Worth The Money

Whether you’re prepping your home to go on the market or want to improve your bathroom’s look and comfort for yourself, there are certain upgrades that are always worth it when remodeling a bathroom.  

1. Fixtures

Outdated fixtures make bathrooms look old and can detract from an otherwise stylish space. A simple switch from colored enamel sinks, showers, and toilets to white will make the bathroom look more updated and fresh.

2. Shower

Showerheads and seating can turn a regular shower into a spa-like experience. Before installing a bathtub or switching to shower-only, we recommend carefully considering your current needs vs what will appeal to future buyers.

For example, if you’re not one to take baths, then perhaps skip adding a bathtub to your master bathroom because it won’t add value to your life. Instead, use that money towards making your dream shower. 

3. Tile

Smaller tiles not only add visual appeal to your shower floor, but they also provide more traction so you don’t slip. Wet environments need solid materials, like stone or quartz, to handle moisture and humidity well. Replacing wall tiles can also breathe new life into a bathroom.

White subway tiles and large, natural stone tiles ceramic are popular design looks for bathroom walls, but there are many other options. Check out our blog post A Quick Guide to Wall Materials For Bathroom Remodels to learn more!

4. Water-Saving Toilets

There a variety of toilet upgrades like wall-mounted, compact, and dual-flush as well as different bowl shapes and colors. Whichever type and style you choose, consider installing a water-saving toilet. It may cost more upfront but you’ll save money in the long-run by reducing your water bill by flushing more efficiency. It’s also better for the environment.

5. Lighting

Lighting is one way to make a small bathroom look bigger and can make any bathroom more functional and aesthetically pleasing. As bathroom remodel contractors, we’ve added lighting to showers, around vanities, and overhead to fully illuminate the space. Platinum Sand Construction can also install a dimmer so you can adjust the lighting to your preference.

6. Storage

Installing a medicine cabinet above the vanity or to the side will allow you to tuck away medications and toiletries, creating a neater space. Depending on your bathroom, the medicine cabinet can be recessed in the wall or protrude 4 to 5 inches. In addition to a medicine cabinet, select a vanity with drawers instead of doors for easier storage and organization.
