You love your historic home and neighbourhood, but your family is growing and the number of bathrooms you have is becoming frustrating for everyone. Fear not! A general contractor can help find the best solution for a new bathroom addition in your home and help bring peace to everyone’s morning routine while increasing your property value at the same time.
New bathroom additions can be achieved with some creative use of existing space. Options include using an existing storage area, framing in a new basement bathroom, or using part of a spare bedroom, den or even a walk-closet. A general contractor can help determine the options that work best for your home based on what’s important to you and your needs.
They will also be able to provide insight into the most cost-effective and efficient space to put a bathroom. They can make recommendations based on existing plumbing, main sewer lines, ventilation, and the general flow of your home.
New bathroom additions can be realized even if using existing space is really not an option; you can consider an addition to your home. This is definitely a larger undertaking, but it can be a worthwhile investment whether you are planning on staying in your home for a long time or looking to increase its market appeal. An experienced general contractor will be able to help you create an addition that aligns with the look and feel of your home both inside and out.
It’s important to note that while bathroom additions do add value to your home, rarely will you recoup 100% of its cost at resale. However, according to realtor.com, you can recover nearly 60% of its cost at resale. Given that many home buyers consider the number of bathrooms as one of the deciding factors on whether to purchase house, 60% is a pretty good ROI if it helps you to sell your house faster. And if you plan to live in your house for many more years before selling, you will get to enjoy the luxury and convenience of your new bathroom for that time.
