Bathroom renovations almost always give you a good return on your investment with the way they increase a home’s property value. It’s also one of the top things that potential buyers make sure to look into before deciding whether the home is for them.
Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some of the hottest bathroom trends this 2022 that are also sure to increase your property value. Consider these highly practical renovations for your space as they’re both functional and aesthetically pleasing!
Natural Aesthetic or Bold Designs
More and more people are treating their bathrooms as a place of zen. It’s a place to retreat and relax after a draining day. And since it was hard to go out to be with nature because of the pandemic, people thought to just bring the outdoors in.
Get that natural aesthetic for your bathroom by painting it with earthy tones. You could also add a couple of small indoor plants to achieve that one-with-nature vibe.
But if you want to take it to the next level, there’s also been a growing interest in using bold colours and designs lately. Try having an accent wall with flashy wallpaper or bright paint. It gives more life to your space and makes it look more inviting.
If you want something a little more low-key, go with black bathroom hardware. These can serve as accent pieces for a subtle edgy vibe for your space.
Wet rooms are all about convenience and accessibility. It’s indeed much easier to just walk into your shower area as opposed to climbing a tub or any sort of elevation.
Curbless showers have been gaining popularity in recent years not only because they’re more functional but also because they look better and more modern.
Adding a glass door or wall to your shower area makes your bathroom seem bigger, too. This would be perfect for bathrooms that don’t have a lot of space. It can make your bathroom look less cramped and easier to breathe in.
If you love relaxing in bathtubs, go for the freestanding ones. Aside from making your space look cleaner and bigger, they’re also much less of a hassle to install.
Another thing that’s sure to increase your property value is built-in technology for your bathroom.
We’re not just talking about rain showerheads that help you relax more. We’re talking about showers with built-in Bluetooth speakers. Because who doesn’t want to jam to their favourite songs while taking a shower, right?
And as a reaction to the pandemic, you might also want to invest in touchless faucets for your bathroom. These help minimize contact and prevent the spread of germs.
They also make it easier for you and your guests to wash your hands without having trouble turning the faucet on with dirty hands.
One proven way to increase your property value is to add storage where you can. Plus points if they can also be multi-purpose.
Having cabinets or drawers in your bathroom maximizes your space. It also helps organize the space better and make it more efficient.
You’ll know when to restock your toiletries since all you’ll have to do is open these storage units and check if you’re running out of something. It also makes it easier for you to replace your towels since everything is already inside.
A part of making the bathroom a place of zen is adding spa-like accessories. Have some essential oils and scented candles ready for when you need to relax and recharge.
You might want to try having a bathtub tray so that you can also have wine and some snacks while you’re unwinding. There are even trays that have a phone holder so you can enjoy a movie.
And while you’re at it, have some bath bombs and salts ready. You could even throw in some petals and dot tealight candles around the room to set the mood.
Renovating Your Bathroom
There are a lot of ways to go about a bathroom renovation. It could be as simple as updating your bathroom hardware or as drastic as a full remodel.
