Bathroom Remodeling is on the Rise in Washington DC Homes
Bathroom remodeling is on the rise in Washington DC homes. According to the National Association of Homebuilders, bathroom remodel projects have increased in the last two years, up 17 percent. In fact, they are the most common remodeling project these days.
For home sellers, this means doing all you can to position the all-important bathrooms in the best light. If you’re planning to do some bathroom remodeling in your Washington DC home, at the top of the list are things like ceiling-mounted “rain” shower heads, handheld shower heads, and showers without doors.
Even though bigger and more luxurious showers are popular, homeowners and buyers are highly interested in green technology and energy-saving devices, too. They’re looking to save money on their monthly utility bills.
So, be prepared for buyers to ask questions about your utility bill, and what types of energy/cost-savings devices you have installed, such as a dual-flush toilet. One button flushes solids by using more water; the other button flushes liquids using less water.
Let there be light and plenty of it! Buyers and homeowners are drawn to warmth and sunlight in the bathroom. Also, they are looking for windows that are easy to open, so that they can air out the bathroom, and reduce the chance of mold occurring.
Another bathroom remodel request these days is automatic lighting dimmers that stay on for a period of time, and then turn all the way off. Leaving lights and fans on increases the energy bill. Homeowners are opting for automated ways to help save money and this kind of bathroom remodeling in your Washington DC home can payoff in the long run.
Another important area for buyers concerns storage space in the bathroom. Bathroom remodeling in Washington DC is offering more counter space by eliminating two-bowl sinks to one and leaving more countertop space for storage. In two-bowl sinks, a built-in cabinet between the two is a likely choice. It provides shared space between the sinks and some useful extra storage.
Finally, have a separate toilet room or at least, have a glass-glazed wall to separate the toilet from the sink and bath/shower area. And, can you guess the top request for the toilet room? An effective and cost-efficient fan for odor and noise elimination!
