Remodel Your Philadelphia Bathroom for Resale…or Getting the Biggest Bang for Your Buck

When remodeling their Philadelphia bathroom most people consider resale even if they have no plans to move in the near future.  This is a good thing!  Plans change, life happens and you want your bathroom in tip top shape so buyers will come flocking.  So how can you be sure that will happen?  Here are my top 5 ways to get more for your money with your Philadelphia bathroom remodel.bath 3

  1.   For those of you who are unfamiliar with this term, it means Keep It Simple St….  While ornate bathrooms work with many Philadelphia home styles, many homebuyers have simpler tastes.  This means keeping the cabinet doors unfussy (shaker or flat panel door), choosing tile that is not too ornate or overpowering, and finally, keeping the gewgaws to a minimum.


  1. Think Spa. If you have some extra money to spend on your bathroom, invest in some spa-like features for your bath/shower. Today there are many options when it comes to spa features, including, but not limited to, Jacuzzi tubs, rain shower heads, body massagers, glass doors and hand held shower heads.  These extras always impress and feel good too.


  1. Install heated Floors. I have yet to see a bathroom in Philadelphia that is heated properly.  Heated floors are the best on a cold Philadelphia winter morning.  It really gets the day started on the right note…even before coffee.


  1. Include one standout feature. This could be a black vanity in a predominantly white bathroom or a colorful splash of color in the shower area.  Make sure the bathroom has character without overdoing it.


  1. Add personality but make it removable. If you love the color teal green, by all means use it.. on the walls, in the towels, the rug and even your toothbrush, but make sure you can remove it (you can leave the toothbrush) when potential buyers come to view your beautiful home.

These suggestions become more important as your bathroom gets larger.  What does that mean?  It means that the smaller the bathroom the more leeway you have.  When remodeling your small Philadelphia powder room go wild.  However in the deluxe size master bath be very conscious of what potential buyers will think.  It will cost them a lot to change your vision and many home buyers view it as too much hassle.
