In the hottest housing markets, master bathroom remodels are a sure-fire investment. The bathrooms are now big, sexy rooms that new homebuilders splurge on, so when buyers are shopping around that’s what they want in an existing home, too.


When remodeling a bathroom, it’s important for homeowners to have a good idea of what your improvements are worth. On average, bathroom remodeling projects yield a 60% return on investment. If the homeowner is smart about their remodeling project, they increase the profitability of the remodel even more. A homeowner might consider the following upgrades for their bathroom:

  • Multiple sinks
  • Glass showers
  • Good lighting
  • Shower seating
  • Extra storage
  • Floating vanities
  • Free standing tubs

An upgraded bathroom is welcoming and warm, which is appealing to home buyers who look for comfort and style when searching for a new home. It’s important for homeowners to pick upgrades that make use of neutral colors and finishes without following ultra-trendy designs. This ensures that the bathroom doesn’t look old and used in a couple of years. Homeowners should always consider increasing the size of the bathroom if possible; most home buyers prefer a home that has big bathrooms. It’s easy to expand the size of a bathroom during a remodel or change certain features to make the bathroom feel bigger. For example, you might replace an over-sized, rarely used tub with a sleek glass shower to create more space in the room.
