As one of the most utilitarian rooms of a home, the bathroom can be one of the biggest selling points in a real estate transaction. High-end, well-designed bathrooms can provide a big return on investment, but they can also be a detriment for sellers if they aren't up to par. If you're looking to sell soon or just need a refresh, here are some major things to avoid in the bathroom:
The bathroom involves a lot of water use, for obvious reasons, and some of it is bound to end up on the floor. While tile surfaces are ideal for this, glossy ceramic or stone will become slippery when wet, increasing the risk of a fall.
Although it may look nice, conventional wallpaper is rarely a good fit for a bathroom. The high amount of steam and moisture from showers will quickly deteriorate the paper, causing it to peel and potentially invite mold growth.
It may seem like with one turn here and one turn there you can easily install many of the appliances in your bathroom. That is not true in most cases. Your safest bet is to contact a professional to install your toilet, pipes, or sink. The cost of hiring a professional will pale in comparison to what it could cost to repair the damages of something installed incorrectly. .
