Financially speaking, a bathroom remodel in Boston is one of the top ten investments you can make in your home. It’s easy to talk about “percentage recouped” in hard numbers…there are dozens of articles on the web telling you what you can expect to see when you sell. But those articles are always talking as if you were about to sell your home next week.
They seldom talk about the enjoyment you get while you’re in your home. After all, we often use money to get things so that we can’t enjoy them…did you think about the resale value of that wok or your latest phone before you bought it? Maybe you have no idea when you’re going to sell, maybe you plan on never leaving the home. In that case, a bathroom remodel can be all about an investment in you.
Comfort: While bedrooms are sometimes called a sanctuary, they’re often filled with kids running around or work (not to mention TV and computers) worming its way in. The bathroom is the one place in the house where you can tell other people “get out!” and that’s the way it should be. So when you retreat to a bath, it’s important that you’re as comfortable as possible, instead of looking at the tiles and thinking about how yellow the grout is getting. Your time in the bathroom should be comfortable and free from distractions.
Amenities: A bathroom remodel is the perfect time to put in everything you always wanted, whether it’s a simple as a towel warmer or bidet to more complex additions such as a jacuzzi or shower panel. The simple fact is, bathroom remodeling is the time to think hard about the extras that you’ve seen in fancy hotels and thought “I’d like to have that!”
The time you’ll enjoy it: Like we said above, the “recouped investment” in a bathroom remodel can’t be solely monetary unless you’re leaving your home in the next six months. You’ve got to take the comfort and amenities mentioned above into account. Would you rather walk into your bathroom every time thinking “we’ve got to get this thing remodeled” or “this is the nicest room in the house!”
