Bathroom Renovations that are Cost Effective – Foxboro, North Attlebor, MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 19, 2013

If you are considering which home improvement projects to move to the top of the list, bathrooms and kitchens will give you the best ROI. Bathroom renovations are second to kitchen renovations when it comes to increasing your home value. Bathroom renovations are very popular because can transform a space, instantly updating the look and feel of your home.
 
Of course, no renovation is easy, but there are ways that homeowners can keep the work and cost of the renovation to a minimum. Especially when you can use what you already have.

Resurface

When possible, covering up what you have in the bathroom is much less expensive and less labor-intensive than tearing out existing cabinets, fixtures and floors and replacing them anew.  Resurfacing can extend to refinishing bathtubs to installing shower liners. But it can also extend to cabinets and vanities. Refacing bathroom vanities and cabinets is less expensive, faster and more efficient than replacing everything.

If you have ugly walls or wallpaper that you don’t want to- or can’t remove, consider using wainscoting to cover a portion of the room or even tiling entire walls.

Scale back on materials

Do not underestimate the power of a fresh coat of paint on any room in the house, including the bathroom. Dark, small spaces can be made to look more expansive with lighter colors.
Cavernous bathrooms that look empty may prove more inviting with darker hues. Pick a paint that is designed for bathroom application so that mold and mildew cannot grow.

Update hardware

A new faucet or some new cabinet pulls can make the room look new and fresh without breaking the bank. Match finishes throughout the bathroom so everything will match. When shopping for a new showerhead, choose a model that also conserves water. This way you will be making cosmetic and energy saving renovations at the same time.

Every time you walk into your bathroom, you are reminded of what you never wanted your bathroom to look like.  Instead of getting frustrated, you could invest in an inexpensive bathroom renovation that can actually boost your home's value.

The national average for a bathroom renovation is $16,552, so a low cost bathroom facelift is a great solution for your bathroom and your wallet.

By updating a few areas of your bathroom without spending a lot of money, your bathroom can feel brand new and add value to your home.

Here are some ideas for a low-cost bathroom renovation that can pay you back.

Project No. 1: Reface Cabinets
Your bathroom cabinets can take a beating throughout the years. You might think that the best option is to replace it entirely, but a more budget-friendly option is to achieve a brand new look by refacing bathroom cabinets, which maintains the structure of your cabinets while replacing the doors and drawers.

Refacing the bathroom vanity can change the entire feel of the bathroom, updating the old cabinet doors and drawers can give your bathroom a modern, fresh look that can increase the value of your home with a dollar for dollar investment.

And speaking of finances, cabinet refacing will cost significantly less than replacing your entire vanity and cabinets. Before you decide to replace your bathroom cabinets entirely, if your cabinets are structurally sound they may simply need a facelift.
