In the past, people were more focused on having bigger living rooms, breezy porches, and larger outdoor spaces. Today, homebuyer shopping needs are quickly changing, making it necessary for real estate to shift and meet the current market demands.
One of these major changes is the need for a spacious, spa-like relaxation space with large soaking tubs, steam showers, and spacious dressing areas. It’s hard to achieve that with a regular 5’ by 9’ bathroom. Whether you want to sell or upgrade your home, you may want to learn a few ways to expand your bathroom. Here are a few tips to guide you.
Check for Unused Rooms
If you have a room sharing a wall with your bathroom that you don’t use, you can always convert it into a bathroom. Consider working with the entire space or part of the space to expand your current bathroom. If you have a home office or a guest room that is rarely used, they can be the perfect choice for bathroom expansion.
Add U-Drawers to Vanity Cabinets
Not all vanities come with drawers, which can be inconvenient when you want to store your toiletries. A u-drawer wrapping around the plumbing can serve this function in many cabinets.
Bump Out a Wall
Bumping out a wall simply means removing the exterior wall, extending the floor an additional 2 feet, and replacing the wall with a small roof to cover the new space. You can use this space to add your soaking tub or move the vanity to improve flow. This option is not for all homes.
Include a New Closet
Part of renovating and improving your bathroom means adding more storage and convenient features such as closet space. Real agents will tell you that bathroom, and kitchen renovations are currently the most valuable renovations you’ll ever need when selling your home. Investing in a new closet can be an attractive prospect if you want to sell your home. You can choose to place it inside the bathroom or outside so long as it doesn’t disrupt the existing floor plan.
Invest in Movable Storage Plans
Storage is key when you’re looking to expand your bathroom and get some space for yourself and your loved ones. One of the best ways to achieve this is by installing portable closets and cabinets. You can choose to conceal them or buy ready-made ones that you can pull into the bathroom whenever you need them and fold and keep them away when not in use. This allows you to organize your bathroom while maximizing the space available.
