Your bathroom is truly one of the most used, yet also most overlooked rooms in your home! Traditionally, bathrooms are built with efficiency in mind, but aesthetics may be overlooked. We’re here to tell you that you can have both. Looking to increase your home’s value?
That means for every dollar you invest in a bathroom renovation, you’ll increase your home’s value by 71¢!
Bathrooms tend to be a trouble area for water, which leads to mold. If you’ve noticed spotting on your ceiling, have a leaky showerhead or faucet, or you’ve noticed moisture below your sink, it might be time to look at a renovation. Taking care of leaks and adding ventilation right away could save you a lot of money in the long run. Unfortunately, some people don’t have the opportunity to fix the problem early, and end up with massive plumbing problems, with water leaking into walls and under flooring. If you find yourself in this predicament, pulling up floors and tearing out walls, why not design a more functional and beautiful bathroom, since you’ll be remodeling anyway?
Our favorite reason for a bathroom remodel is definitely not responding to a plumbing disaster. We’d much rather help you create a peaceful oasis, right in your own home.
Speaking of storage space, does it feel like your cabinets have exploded toiletries all over the bathroom? If your family has grown, or you just don’t have enough space for your linens and products, a bathroom remodel can do the trick. It could be as simple as adding cabinetry or shelving, or as involved as knocking out a wall to add space. Either way, you’ll be happy with the result.
Another great way to accommodate more people in your household is to enlarge an existing half-bath by adding a shower or tub. We’ve seen this work really well for families who have an aging relative come to live with them, requiring a larger bathroom on the main floor of the home. Or, maybe you’ve lived alone, and now have a significant other moving in. Wouldn’t it be great to have double sinks and more storage available?
Here at COR Improvements, we not only renovate existing bathrooms, but we add new ones from time to time. One of our favorite projects included opening up space to enlarge a bedroom and create a master-suite by adding a bath. We also loved renovating an unused attic to create an additional bedroom and bathroom for a growing family.
Many people think that because the bathroom may be one of the smallest rooms in your house, it’s also a simple remodel. We’ve seen plenty of do-it-yourself bathroom remodels gone wrong over the years. Without the proper equipment and knowledge to install flooring, fixtures, and cabinetry, you could actually damage your space more than improve it, no matter what the square footage. This is where a general contractor comes in.
By hiring a general contractor, you’ll save yourself a lot of headaches, like communicating with subcontractors and ordering materials. They will help you choose finishes within your budget, and maybe most importantly, keep your project on schedule (you really don’t want to go without your bathroom for longer than necessary!). On top of that, a quality general contractor will also make sure the appropriate permits are pulled and inspections are completed based on the laws in your state.
We also recommend taking advantage of our complimentary 1-year assessment, where we return to your remodeled space, take a look at how you’re using it in everyday life, and make recommendations for ongoing maintenance to keep it feeling new longer.
