Bathroom remodels popular among home improvement projects

Posted on Friday, November 1, 2013 at 12:18:42 PM

Many individuals are looking for creative, productive methods to use home improvement financing. One such option could be a bathroom remodel, as these improvements are a growing trend across the U.S.

According to Angie Hicks, the founder of Angie's List, bathroom renovations are some of the most popular searches on the website out of its more than 700 other categories. In order to get the most bang for the buck, homeowners looking into remodeling may want to turn an ordinary bathroom into a spa retreat.

Hicks explained that the existing tub could be replaced with something a little more luxurious. Multiple shower heads are now more prominent, or one, large rain-style one. Regardless of specific choices, the overall feel of the new bathroom should be large and open.

Homeowners tend to focus on widespread trends when spending with home improvement financing. Hicks recommended thinking about individual elements - or even colors - that hold up over time.

For example, according to MSN Real Estate, natural light is a big plus in any bathroom. More buyers want brighter spaces, and that could be achieved with skylights and added windows. The more welcoming and comfortable a bathroom is, the better.
