A modern and updated bathroom can add significant value to a property if the renovations are done correctly. According to CNN Money, the average bathroom remodel cost was $12,918 in 2006. On average, a homeowner saw an 84.9 percent return on that investment, which increased the value of their home by $10,970 at sale.
Home improvement financing can help you achieve a polished bathroom without breaking the bank.
Here are three affordable ways to transform a bathroom:
1. Install a new vanity mirror. Switch out the outdated medicine cabinet and replace it with a stylish mirror. It can add a modern and elegant touch to the room and give you a larger mirror to work with.
2. Repaint. Changing the wall color of the room can drastically impact the overall design of the space and make it feel fresh and new. This simple fix can easily be done in an afternoon.
3. Replace the hardware. Personalize the bathroom with unique knobs or pulls that add an element of whimsy or sophistication depending on the look you want. A local hardware specialty store will have a lot of available options.
