The Average Cost Of Bathroom Remodeling
Your bathroom remodeling in Clearwater will be based on some different factors. Which construction company you use, materials, time-frame, and how much you need to be remodeled.
The Remodeling Magazine 2018 Cost vs. Value Report shows that a mid-range bathroom remodels generally costs about $19,000, an upscale remodel costs about $62,000.Consumer Reports recommends simple improvements like re-caulking the tub, installing new bathroom fixtures, and adding new toilets over a full-blown remodel.
If you want to start a bathroom remodeling project, here are some other of the projects that will get you the best return on your home.
Vanity is one of the best projects to do for the most significant return- but it may cost more expensive than the other projects. Updating the vanity will generally also include the countertops, faucet, and sink, which can eat up your budget. Next, replacing the flooring will give your bathroom a new look. Porcelain or ceramic can be made to look like the classic wood or stone but is completely waterproof and durable to any moisture. With a master bathroom, the new fad is to pull out your bathtub and install a stand-up shower. The reasoning behind removing the tub is that homeowners say that they only use it a few times a year. A shower they use every day. So get rid of that old tub you never really use! Lastly, landscaping is one of the most valuable home improvements you can make, besides remodeling your bathroom or kitchen

The top projects used to increase your home can be taken even further. Do even more with your showers and floors to increase that value as much as possible. Some of these options include:

If it’s in your budget to take your remodel to the left level we highly recommend you do. Buyers will feel a weight lifted off of their chest that they won’t have to go through the trouble of adding these features themselves. Not to mention it would greatly increase the value of your home.
What Colors Should You Use?
It’s recommended using neutral tones when painting with the intention to sell. This creates an atmosphere for the buyer that it’s their space to create. Using these colors also allows the buyer to use their imagination and think about all the ways they can create the new home to fit them. However if you aren’t intending to sell its always recommended to use lighter colors. Lighter colors will open up the space and make it appear larger. Although if you have your heart set on a specific color, an accent wall could always be an option.
