If you’re thinking of improving one of the bathrooms in your condo, we’ve put together this helpful list of ideas. Not only will these upgrades increase your enjoyment of the space, they will also add real value to your condo.
Change Your Caulking/Grout
One of the easiest changes homeowners can make, and one that’s often overlooked, is changing the caulking or grout. This simple, relatively inexpensive fix will help your bathroom show much better to prospective buyers. Fresh grout and caulking removes those small, telltale signs of daily use and makes your bathroom appear new right away. Your bathroom will immediately look cleaner, fresher, and more inviting.
Frameless/Walk-In Glass Shower
A frameless or walk-in glass shower offers many benefits. It’s much easier to clean, as there’s no ledge where water pools. It’s also accessible, convenient for seniors, kids, and anyone who may have mobility challenges. This style of shower also has a more modern, streamlined look, an update that is attractive to potential buyers.
A striking new vanity can change the whole look of your bathroom. Vanities come in a range of styles and sizes and are available at a variety of price points. Floating vanities free up floor space, look contemporary, and work well in bathrooms with a smaller footprint. Elegant double-sink vanities are a must in ensuite bathrooms. Many opt for natural stone countertops to lend a bit of luxury to the space. As beautiful as these pieces can be, don’t forget their practical side; choose one that offers ample storage space too.
Deluxe Shower Head
One upgrade that is especially sought after is a deluxe shower head, which can help create the feeling of an upscale hotel bathroom in your own home. Dual shower heads offer an additional handheld wand, which is versatile and handy for cleaning. Oversized rain shower models are always popular and can turn your daily bathing into a spa-like experience. Some even have built-in speakers that sync to your devices or filters that remove harmful chemicals and infuse your water with vitamins.
Extra storage in your bathroom increases its functionality, allowing you to keep everything you need close at hand yet neatly out of the way. Rather than cluttering your countertop with toiletries and linens, install a cabinet above the toilet or add some shelving. Once you have these elements in place you can focus on styling them and creating little vignettes. Display your prettier items and tuck everything else away.
Strong Exhaust Fan
One of the more practical bathroom upgrades involves installing a stronger exhaust fan. This will help reduce moisture in your shower and prevent mold from forming. An efficient exhaust fan will also improve the overall air quality in your bathroom and help to reduce odors. One of the most important reasons to have a strong fan is preventative: it helps reduce the risk of damage caused by too much moisture in the room. Current models are quiet and ultra efficient.
These bathroom upgrades can help make any space feel clean, comfortable, and inviting, while also adding value. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow the Gemterra blog for more great home decor tips.
