Gain Equity by Improving the Bathroom


Visitors: 118

There is nothing quite like taking the realtor's lock off the front of the door to your new home and walking in the first time as an owner. This is the place that you have chosen to live, and there will be a lot of memories made. In addition, you are responsible to take care of this home in order that it provides you with a secure investment you can count on in the future, through such measure as insurance and home improvement. There is no one else that will take care of any problems that come up in this new place but yourself; you will have to decided how to fix a leaky roof or faucet, you will have to decide how to clean the plumbing, and you will have to decided what comes in and what goes out. All of this will be done on your own dime; there is no landlord or company to call for help. One benefit of being totally in charge is that you get to decide exactly how your home will look; you can recreate the kitchen or bathroom according to your vision of what a house shod be, you can engage in some remodeling, you can even add a pool!

The most popular and usually the first ta ks that homeowners begin with when they decide to improve their residence is overhauling the bathroom. The bathroom is one of the first places that a potential buyer will look to determine what they would like to pay for the home; it is also the area most frequently used by guests. The homeowner will also be spending a significant amount of time in the bathroom, and if the design makes you retch then it is time to consider the task of remodeling!

Redesigning the bathroom is a very involved job. Those who choose to use professional will find that there are a large number of experts to be consulted on bathroom remodeling, including plumbers for the piping and the toilet, bath unit, and sink fixtures, an electrician for the lights and the electrical outlets. Specialist contractors will probably be needed in order to design and install any cabinets, while a general contractor can be used to do the painting, the tiles, the wall repairs, and any special features.

Remember that although the bathroom may look daunting when you consider the amount of areas involved, it is one of the rooms in the house that will probably cost less to redo in the long run. A living room, for example, would require many of the same trades, in addition to thousands of dollars in new carpet (for which professionals would also need to be called!), furniture, and window dressings. In comparison, the smaller area that a bathroom takes up makes it a more manageable task with better payoff in the long run. Most people agree that along with the kitchen, the bathroom is the one room in the house that can make or break impressions and sales!
