Top 4 Bathroom Renovations for The Best Return on Investment

One of the top ways to increase the value of your home is to improve the bathroom. The best part is a full renovation is not necessary to reap the benefits of a bathroom remodel. Nothing turns away a buyer faster than a dreary, outdated master suite. On the other side of that, a functional, bright, modern bathroom can be a huge selling feature. Whether you are prepping your home to put on the market, or just making home improvements, a bathroom remodel is a sound investment. Keep reading for the top four most profitable bathroom projects.


Update the Backsplash

A backsplash update can be as complex as your budget allows for. The backsplash can redefine a room, brighten up the space, make it more modern looking and add style. If you are trying to appeal to the masses; choose a classic & versatile backsplash. But to attain that wow factor; choose bolds colours, mixed materials, natural stone, or unique mosaics. Updating the tiling in the shower can refresh your bathroom.


Flooring Update

A new floor can add a much-needed update to any room. If you decide to make your bathroom a priority, ensure you pick a floor that does not date the room. Go with standard size and neutral styles. Choose a floor that is easy to clean and maintain. The best flooring types are more than just functional, they add style and improve the aesthetics of your bathroom. When choosing the best flooring material for your bathroom renovation keep in mind that you will want it to remain waterproof, slip-resistant and it should complement the décor in the rest of the home.


A new countertop can add durability too and give your vanity a high-end feel. Bathroom vanity countertops are 70% personal taste and 30% space requirements. There are several options for bathroom countertops: granite, quartz, marble and even porcelain. Each material offers assorted styles and colours to choose from.

Universal Design

Accessibility modifications can be an important selling feature for some buyers. Universal design aims to incorporate design features that are all-inclusive and factor in age, size and physical ability. Think zero entry showers (curbless showers), they have no threshold and are ideal for people with limited mobility, the elderly, and kids. Recessed storage options are a non-intrusive avenue for bathroom storage needs.
