A bathroom remodeling or renovation project is exciting, it’s fun to watch your plans come into focus.
Of course, there are practical incentives; adding a modern-upgraded bathroom to your home will add to its value. There is no question. Then there are the savings; certain choices you make will yield greater savings than others. For example, adding eco-star appliances (faucets and toilets), heaters, and modern lighting will bring a measurable and immediate return on your investment in the project.
But the truth is, few of us renovate our bathrooms with ROI on the very top of the list. The reasons we remodel our bathrooms are even more apparent. We want our bathrooms to reflect our household, provide refuge for our families and guests alike, and do what great bathrooms have always done, serve as a respite from the rush of the day.
The bathroom is the one room we all use alone and in these moments, we each enjoy a calming, welcoming environment to have a moment to ourselves.
First, considering a bathroom remodel is one thing and a bathroom renovation is another. They are two very different propositions. The words “renovate” and “remodel” are often used interchangeably but this is one time when it helps to focus on differences.
Our best piece of advice when thinking about a bathroom renovation or remodel is to determine which one you want and which one you need. Then you can establish a budget and decide how much of your bathroom should be changed and how you want to allocate your budget. After that its time to get creative.
When you know what you are doing and why – the next question is how and for what. When we sit down with Westchester County homeowners to talk about updating or renovating their bathroom a clear set of project goals and objectives is a great roadmap for us to work from.
Everyone’s taste is personal, everyone’s perfect bathroom is only perfect based on their use and preference.
