Mississauga and Oakville, West of Toronto, are wonderful suburbs with many fantastic neighborhoods. Some of the homes are in well established neighborhoods offering tree lined streets and many local conveniences. However, many of the homes are aging and one of the rooms where that is most noticeable is the bathroom.
Whether you are looking to buy a home, sell your home or renovate the home you are in to meet your current needs – one of the best returns is investing in bathroom renovations. After the kitchen, realtors report that updating a tired-looking bathroom is one of the best things you can do to increase a home’s resale value. It is also a huge consideration for home purchasers, since the condition of the bathrooms greatly affects the desirability of the home. More and more families want bigger, more contemporary, bathrooms. Many home owners also want more space, added modern conveniences and a ‘spa’ feel, since a bathroom does not have to just be for washing – but a place to relax and escape while you soak your troubles away.
It is important to get a reliable and experienced contractor to do your bathroom renovations, especially if you are making changes to the electrical or plumbing.
Adding lighting options can really highlight the positive features of a bathroom, reduce shadows and glare around a vanity; or set a romantic mood around the sunken bathtub. Larger showers with massage showerheads or rain showerheads are very popular. Updated fixtures including faucets, cabinets and cabinet handles can add elegance. An additional sink and larger vanity can add space and convenience.
Perhaps you already have a dream bathroom in mind, which may include decorative glass, extra-wide wall tiles, granite and under-mount sinks. If not, search through decor magazines and bath catalogues for ideas, then call an experienced contractor to find out what is possible within your space and how you can make the most of your renovations budget.
