How a Spa-Like Bathroom Improves Real Estate Value

 

In this day and age, it seems like the bigger the better, and that goes for real estate as well.

Home improvement has become a huge enterprise in the recent years, with channels like HGTV

drawing in viewers. With that being said, spa-like bathrooms have become more popular with

the recent growth of interest. There is an added bonus to spa styled bathrooms, in addition to

relaxation and bliss, the fact is that it actually improves the real estate value of your home. By

remodeling your bathroom to look and feel like you are at a luxurious spa, you would also be

selling that luxurious spa to the next buyer that can earn you back more than you actually

invested in the first place.

 

To begin, let’s look at what aspects of the spa can actually influence the value of the bathroom.

According to Page-Pryde Properties, there are four specific trends that can affect the results.

And those are: the free-standing tub, a tranquil color palette, good lighting, and advanced

technological amenities. Elle Décor also suggests evoking all your senses with candles and art

that can help relax you. Ultimately, there are a lot of different things to get the ultimate spa-

styled bathroom. In the following paragraphs you will see examples and possibilities of what

you can do.

 

The end-goal is to create a relaxing experience, and a free standing tub is the first major

improvement you can make to get that. Jean-Jacques L’Henaff, vice president of design for

American Standard, told Page-Pryde, “Adding a freestanding tub is a cost effective way to evoke

a spa-like atmosphere in any bathroom, and it’s one that really helps elevate the user’s overall

experience”. You should take a look at the shower as well, since a rainfall showerhead is the

epitome of luxurious and feels like you are actually in the rain when you close your eyes. Towels

are also surprisingly effective to the feel of the room – and by that I mean, the fluffier, the

better.

A calm color palette in the spa typically consists of earth tones and should be taken into

consideration when remodeling. It is a simple yet effective way to emit a calming atmosphere.

Above-the- mirror lights can help with the application of makeup and the quality of a close

shave, while soft lights can provide a soothing ambiance. Having extra amenities can boost your

value as well. This can be things like waterproof TVs, heaters, and accessories. The presentation

of things like body scrubs and special soaps on your counter can play a big role in creating the

spa-styled bathroom. Tiles are also a huge “Yes” when considering a remodel. Tiles give off the

illusion of allure and wealth, and you can use them on the floor, on the wall, and in the shower.

Plus, they are easy to clean.

 

When you remodel your bathroom, on average you can earn back up to 70% of your

investment when the home is sold 5 years after the initial remodeling, according to the 2015

study done by Remodeling. It is said that the bathroom plays a huge role in a buyer’s decision.

And what’s more attractive than a bathroom with luxurious, at-home spa features. According to

HGTV, faucets are an important aspect of the bathroom, along with the countertops and the

shower. They looked at Remodeling’s study from 2004, where a $9,400-bathroom remodel

recouped at 182%. The seller actually made a great profit off their investment.

Remember, the bathroom is the room in the house that goes through the most wear. The

bathroom and the kitchen are comparatively the two most looked at and considered areas of a

house. Buyers will see the house as expensive and in good quality if these two rooms are

managed and decorated well. This is because these rooms are arguably the most used rooms in

the house, and therefore the most seen by others.
