3 Tips to Increase the Value of Your Bathroom Addition

There are many reasons people make upgrades to their homes. Some want to enhance different aspects of their house to maximize their lifestyle, while others want to enjoy a change of environment. Regardless of the reason, upgrades are not cheap, and some are much harder to do than others.

That said, one of the best upgrades a home can enjoy is an additional bathroom. Not only does it add the convenience of an extra bathroom, but it goes a long way in increasing the home's value. However, bathroom additions are quite costly, and if you are trying to save as much money as possible with this kind of project, you will need the following tips.

1. Work smart, not hard

Remember to go through the entire process rather than going at it blindly and wasting your time and effort. In other words, spend the time to plan the project. That way, you can implement cost-saving methods to save the most amount of money possible.

For instance, you can look for products that can make the job easier or identify your pipes' locations to minimize construction costs. Regardless, some planning will help you find ways to make the upgrade more successful.

2. Consider the value-added

Costs can vary based on the project. However, one aspect that you must always consider is the value that the upgrades will give your home. While calculating the exact value can be challenging or impossible, an excellent way to understand if an additional bathroom is worth it is to look at what homebuyers want.

For example, many homebuyers want homes with at least two bathrooms, and if you have only one, an upgrade can be extremely beneficial. That said, studies show that bathrooms can increase a home's value by approximately eight percent, so if that is an increase you like, then you can go ahead with the project.

3. Identify the location of the addition

The location is one of the most important aspects of adding a new bathroom to your home. Putting it in the wrong place can cost you plenty in terms of time and money.

Also, it might seem that your home will not be able to fit a new bathroom, but that is usually just a case of not knowing where to look. We recommend that you look at your hallways, closets, and bedrooms, as there might be unused space that could be put to better use.

For instance, if one of your hallways leads to a dead-end, you might be able to place a bathroom there instead. If your bedroom is larger than you need it to be, you can dedicate some of that space for the project. You can even consider slicing an existing bathroom in half and creating two smaller ones! Just take the time to consider your options and ask for professional tips if you need them.


An additional bathroom upgrade is generally a great addition to your home, especially if you only have one bathroom. That said, plenty of planning is required for a successful project. If it seems to be too much for you to handle by yourself, you can work with professionals to give you the help you need.

You can even hire experts to assist during the project, ensuring everything is professionally installed and constructed for a reliable bathroom that will improve your quality of life and increase your home's value. In many cases, it will be well worth the extra investment.
