Bathroom Remodeling Projects That Can Increase Your Home’s Value

Here in Alabama, a mid-range bathroom remodeling project has an average return on investment of nearly 74%, making it a great way to increase your home’s value. While a general remodel is great, there are a few specific upgrades you can do within your bathroom to really maximize your investment. 

Keep reading to learn which bathroom remodeling projects have the biggest impact on your home’s value. 

Bathtubs and Showers

By far, the highest-value upgrade you can do in your bathroom is replacing your bathtub and/or shower. Updated bathing areas appeal to more potential buyers and can fetch you more money should you decide to sell your home. 

For the best possible value, make sure you have at least one bathtub in your home, which is an important feature for potential buyers with young children. In your other bathrooms, consider installing a chic and luxurious shower in a neutral color that won’t look dated in a few years. 

If you live in an area that’s popular with retirees, you might consider adding aging-in-place features like a walk-in tub. Not only will you get to enjoy it for yourself, but if you decide to sell your home, it will appeal to people looking for their forever home.

And, don’t forget to add some customizations to your tubs and showers by opting for built-in shelving, seats, dual showerheads, etc. to make your bathing area more functional.

Vanity Area

Take a closer look at your vanity area. Is the countertop dull, faded, cracked, or chipped? If so, replacing it with high-quality quartz is an easy way to boost your home’s value. Choosing a material that is durable and easy to keep clean is key. Again, be sure to choose a timeless, neutral color instead of something that may not appeal to potential buyers. 

You also might want to consider replacing your fixtures, especially if they look dated. Installing a new faucet is fairly inexpensive and easy to do yourself, but it can have a big impact. 

If your bathroom has a standing sink instead of a full vanity area, consider replacing it with a larger model. Choosing an option with built-in cabinetry will give your bathroom more storage space, increasing your home value even more. 


Another easy and low-cost update that makes a big impact is to replace the lighting in your bathroom. If you still have the original over-mirror lighting, for example, you might replace it with a more modern fixture. 

Or, you can get creative! Consider installing small sconce lighting on either side of your mirror for a unique lighting setup. To give your bathroom a more luxurious feel, you can even install a lighted mirror that looks and feels high-end. 

The options are nearly limitless, but good lighting will always boost your home’s value.
