Your home will likely only have one bathroom if it was built before 1970. So counter space may not be easy to come by if you are sharing one bathroom with your entire family. You may also be asking yourself “how hard would it be to add another bathroom.” Luckily for you, we are here to answer that question!
It’s All About Location
Finding the perfect place to put your new bathroom is half the battle and it all depends on the layout of your home. A good first step is to call out a plumber so they can figure out where the water and waste lines are and the easiest place to alter them so they can reach the space of your new bathroom. By being able to use existing water and waste lines will not only save you time but also money.
Homeowners with single-story layouts will have the easiest time adding a new bathroom since they can just run the water line through the crawl space below. You should also be sure to include a tub somewhere in the home since this can boost your resale value. Master showers with double heads are nice, but if your future buyer has kids, they will want a tub.
Even if your bathroom is going to be small it is important to maximize the space you have. That may include a wall-mounted toilet or sink and a pocket door. When it comes to design, classic tones for tiles and fixtures, mixed with bold rugs, candles, and paint colors are essential. No matter how you design your extra bathroom, it’s going to add value. When you sell your home, you will get whatever money out of it that you put into it.
Long story short you will want a trusted contractor on your side to guide you through this process. Contact us today to get started on building your dream bathroom!
