After a long, tiring day of hard work, there’s nothing that can match the restorative powers of a grandmaster bath waiting for you at home. A beautifully-designed and supremely functional master bath not only takes your quality of life up a few notches but also adds a significant chunk to your home’s resale value. In fact, according to a report by Remodeling Magazine, with a bathroom remodel, you can recoup around one-third of your investment back in the resale value of your home. Few other home improvement projects come close to that figure.
If you’re planning to renovate or remodel your master bath, the bathroom renovation experts here at Grizzly Strong Construction have put together a list of some important considerations you should keep in mind.
Just like any other home improvement project, proper planning is key with bathroom remodels. Consider your desires and needs. For instance, do you like coming home to a long, relaxing bath, or do you rarely use a tub? Perhaps you prefer a spa-like experience, in which case a rain shower or a luxurious steam shower would be more up your speed. However, you should keep in mind that you should have at least one bathtub at home in case a guest or family member needs it.
The amount of money you spend on a bathroom remodel depends largely upon your design choices. For instance, not opting to relocate plumbing lines will save you a considerable amount of money. Only change the location of the toilet, sink, and tub if it adds to the bathroom’s functionality and aesthetics.
In most homes, the master bath is a shared space. Therefore, you should plan your remodel in a way that works for both you and your partner. If your budget allows, consider installing twin sinks and twin showers. This will half the time it takes for you to get ready. Dedicated storage space and an ample amount of counter space will make things go smoothly when you’re in a hurry to get to work.
One of the smartest and easiest things you can is incorporate universal design into your master bath renovation. Some examples include installing a roll-in shower with built-in seating and a wide entry, towel racks that match grab bars, and a higher easy off-easy-on toilet.
