The bathroom can be one of the most expensive renovation projects in the home, incorporating a variety of technical skills. It’s too easy to break the budget and still end up with an inefficient, unattractive bathroom. Homeowners can avoid some of the major remodeling pitfalls by considering these little-known bathroom renovation ideas.
An Eye to the Future
Professional bathroom remodelers have adopted a standard called “universal design,” and many do-it-yourselfers are taking the cue. Adopted on the wings of the Americans With Disabilities Act, universal bathroom improves accessibility for people of all ages and mobility restrictions. The AARP has excellent recommendations for bathroom universal design, such as installing lever handles, and enlarging doorways to accommodate wheelchairs. These adjustments ensure that the bathroom remodel endures throughout all stages of life.
Survey Lifestyle Needs
Home improvement aisles are loaded with tempting — and expensive — upgrades. Before spending any money, the homeowner should create a budget and stick to it. He should also survey his needs and his lifestyle, and purchase bathroom ameneties accordingly. For example, pricey marble tiles are lovely but are slippery when wet and may become a falling hazard for small children.
Renovate to Existing Standard
According to Realtor.com, the average bathroom remodel carries one of the best returns on a remodeling investment. Equity decreases, however, if the remodel rises above the average property value of the neighborhood. If the house is in a middle-class neighborhood, a luxury remodel may reduce the home’s resell value.
