Increase Your Home’s Retail Value with These Plumbing Upgrades

Planning a bathroom remodel can be a tremendous amount of fun. Even though they tend to be the smallest spaces in the house, there are a surprising number of upgrades that you can choose from that run a very wide variety of price ranges. Here are a few of the coolest upgrades you can do to your bathroom for your upcoming renovation project.

Floating Vanity

A floating vanity will not only give your bathroom a fresh, modern feel, it also can amp up your storage space. As a bonus, floating vanities tend to make small spaces like bathrooms look larger and airier by adding open space between the floor and the bottom of the vanity.

Tile Accent Walls

You've seen tile on the floors of bathrooms all over the place, so that's nothing new. You've seen tile on the walls in the shower, too, but probably less common is tile on the walls of the bathroom. This is an upgrade that is relatively inexpensive to do and adds depth and texture to your bathroom that can't be achieved any other way. Add tiles to a wall to give the room some color, make it easier to clean, or just add some sparkle to the space.

Radiant Heat

If you've ever gotten up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and had your toes freeze as soon as they hit the bathroom tile floor, then you can probably appreciate radiant heat flooring. This is a heating system that, although it heats up the entire room, it's particularly good for those early morning visits to the bathroom to make the space more inviting and less frigid.

Bathroom 2

Frameless Glass Showers

Having a glass shower without a frame looks amazing. They have a way of opening the bathroom space and making it look large and luxurious, no matter the actual size of the room. They are also great if you have trouble getting over a typical shower ledge or lip, or if you have a wheelchair user in your home. There's no frame around it to step over or trip on.

Seating Area

If your bathroom can accommodate it, put some seating in your bathroom. Many people may scoff at this idea but when you think about it, people spend a lot of time in the bathroom, and not just to use the toilet or to take a shower. Where do you sit to paint your nails, apply your makeup, or clip your toenails? Other than the edge of the tub or the toilet, you may not have any options. Putting seating in your bathroom also adds a touch of elegance to the space while giving you an extra spot to put down a towel or wait for your bath to fill up.

Bathrooms are usually the smallest spaces in the house, but they can pack the biggest punch in terms of resale value. From new countertops to a new modern vanity and awesome technology that will take your breath away, there are a lot of cool things you can do to the bathroom.
