Bathroom Remodeling Introduction
Remodeling a bathroom has always been a popular endeavor among homeowners for a variety of reasons. For some, it was simply a way of increasing the equity in their home with the intent of attaining a higher resale price for the house.
For others, the focus was on increasing their current enjoyment of that room by, for instance, converting it into a home spa, with the added benefit of a higher resale value if and when they decided to move. Or perhaps, the house was purchased as a "fixer-upper", and the bathroom was old and in need of attention. These are just a few scenarios.
In today's market, however, the emphasis has shifted. Many people are remodeling their bathrooms because they realize they will be staying in their current home for a good while because moving is not an option. This could be because of cash flow, interest rates, lower appraised value, negative equity in their home or a myriad of other factors and circumstances. So if they will not be moving in the foreseeable future, why not make the bathroom as beautiful and comfortable as possible to maximize their enjoyment of it?
Another rapidly growing group of people are those who are remodeling their bathrooms in order to accommodate multiple generations living within one household. Three generations living in one house is becoming more commonplace; sometimes even four generations under one roof. Additionally, there is a large group of people over 50 who intend to remain in their current homes as long as they possibly can.
