A Bathroom Remodel: The easiest decision to make for your home – Part 1

Think about it… no room garners attention in your Vero Beach home like the bathroom does. When looking to buy a home the bathroom, if you think about it, is one of the first rooms that you look at. The bathroom’s appearance is one of those factors that can make or break the sale of a home. A bathroom can easily date the home and set the mood for the style for the rest of the home, so having a bathroom properly remodeled is an important decision.

It is also one of the few home improvement projects that you can do that traditionally will see a 75% to 85% return on your investment for the sale of your home.

When looking for remodeling projects to do within your Vero Beach area, a bathroom remodel is dollar for dollar the best investment that you can make for your home. However, making sure that you make appropriate considerations for your bathroom remodeling project is just as important as the project itself.

Throwing together a hodgepodge of fixtures and materials can end up creating a dated and unsightly appearance for your home. Treasure Coast Cabinetry & More would like to offer a few tips to making sure that your bathroom remodel comes out perfect every time.

No Regret Flooring

Flooring options are something that many homeowners simply don’t take the proper time to consider. Proper use of materials, colors and durability factors greatly play into the overall quality feel of the bathroom. Making sure that you choose materials based upon their functionality rather than just color will mean the difference of whether or not you say “I regret having this floor”.

At Treasure Coast Cabinetry & More we understand the importance that having the perfect bathroom floor can be. When the owner comes out to make the initial inspection and assessment, we utilize the latest in technology to show you not only how your bathroom can look; but provide examples of flooring options. He will show you how different textures work best to blend with the countertop and walls, as well as, how different textures will work for the protection of the floor and functionality.

For example: Large ceramic tiles can make the bathroom feel very open and roomy, but they can also create a slippery environment. Natural stone and limestone tiles can give a very earthy feel to the bathroom, but can absorb drips and spills becoming stained overtime.

Don’t Neglect the Electrical

It is common during a bathroom remodeling project to replace the electrical fixtures to more updated, economical switches, outlets and fixtures. Based upon the age of the home however, it might be a smarter idea to take this opportunity to update the wiring all the way to the breaker box. The breaker and wiring, if over 15 years old, may have dry and brittle coverings that are ideal to update during a bathroom remodeling project.

Usually just a few additional hours of labor, this little update can help extend the life of your home’s wiring and keep from expensive electrical wiring shorts down the road. It will also allow your modernized bathroom to handle the increased electrical loads that the bathroom was not originally designed to handle 15+ years ago.

Build in functionality

Think outside the box when it comes to your bathroom remodel in your Vero Beach home. Consider building in some functionality such as: recessed compartments in the shower for shampoos, a fold-down seat in the shower, under sink compartments that holds some of the smaller items that seem to collect on the bathroom sink. Little improvements like this can help bring functionality to your updated bathroom remodeling project and really help get the most out of your investment.
