They can inspire and introduce a sense of peace and calm if decorated correctly.


Here are a few bathroom renovations that you can make to help up the value of your home during resale.

For the eccentric bunch who love brightly colored wallpapers and unique and peculiar decorations, your bathroom might be a bit harder to sell. This is because, for the most part, people enjoy neutral tones, as they present a blank palette where buyers can imagine themselves settling in. Just because the character that you’ve added to your bathroom may fit your personality, does not mean it will coincide with someone else’s. Crisp colors like white with added colorful accents tend to be the best.



2. Go Bright

You’re going to want lighting over the mirrors or vanity, as well as illumination that sits overhead. There should be no dark, grimy corners.


If you want to install windows instead, make sure to be weary of installing them in the line of the public eye. Your best bet is to try and install something along the lines of a skylight, which provides both natural light and necessary privacy.



3. Go Efficient

If you have water fixtures that are over two decades old, it may be time to install some that are new and efficient. Look for EPA-labeled WaterSense faucet, which can help to give your bathroom a fresh look and reduce your overall water flow.
