Three Reasons Why You Should Remodel the Bathroom in Your Bend Oregon Home

Bathroom Remodel

BEND, Ore. – There’s no denying that kitchen and bathroom improvements will help to increase the value of any Bend Oregon Home but sadly many home owners are left struggling between deciding on which improvement they should make to their home before listing it for sale on the 2016 Bend Oregon Real Estate Market.

In this post we will share with you three reasons why you should remodel the bathroom in your Bend Oregon Home before listing it for sale.

Your Bathroom Is A Safety Concern

If you can’t use the bathroom in your Bend Oregon Home without worrying about your personal safety or the safety of your guests then this is the first sign that it’s time to remodel your bathroom because, any buyer who submits an offer on your home will ultimately submit a lower because of the work that needs to be done to remodel the bathroom.

A Bathroom Remodel Will Increase The Value Of Your Home

Anytime you remodel the bathroom in a home you can count on that remodel increasing the value of that Bend Oregon Home but the key is to make sure the remodel is done right. Before signing off on the plans to your bathroom remodel make sure to confirm the following

No carpeting – Most buyers do not like to see carpeting in bathrooms.

No grout – Another thing that the average home buyer doesn’t like to see in a bathroom is grout since grout does carry germs. If you’re considering changing the flooring or countertop in your bathroom consider choosing material that’s easier to maintain like granite for the counter top or slate for the floor.

Should be heelchair accessible – Choose a bathroom design that’s wheelchair accessible so that a future occupant of the home can get into the bathroom thanks to a wider doorway that’s big enough for a wheelchair or walker to fit through.

No-Regret Tile Floors

If you want an easy-care floor: Go for porcelain or glazed tiles, and avoid porous natural stone tiles like limestone. Unless sealed vigilantly, they’ll absorb drips and spills and become stained over time.
If you want a nonslip floor: Choose tiles with textured surfaces, matte finishes, or sand-containing glazes. Another option: small tiles with lots of grout lines, which offer better “grip” than large tiles.

Your Bathroom Takes Too Long To Clean Right No

Last of all, but most important, if your bathroom has too much mildew or mold this is another sign that now would be a great time for you to remodel the bathroom in your Bend Oregon Home before listing it for sale because excessive mold and or mildew are both signs that the materials inside of your bathroom have worn out over time and are becoming breeding grounds for mold growth.
