Homeowners typically add an extra bathroom to improve their home’s resale value. Others, however, add another bathroom to meet the needs of their growing families. Regardless of what inspired you to consider adding an extra bathroom, here are a few things you should consider before starting your project.
You should have enough square footage to accommodate another bathroom. If your master bedroom is large enough, you can carve out a simple bathroom here. But if you can’t find space for an extra bathroom in your current home layout, you’ll likely need to extend your property.
If you have a large family, adding an extra bathroom will reduce the wait time for every person to have their turn in the shower. Mornings can be pretty hectic, so having multiple bathrooms in the house will surely help your family have a more relaxed start every day. For other homeowners, their purpose for adding another bathroom is to increase their property value. Regardless of your goal for adding an extra bathroom, make sure to communicate this with your bathroom contractors. This way, they can guide you through the process and offer recommendations that are apt for your needs.
Apart from the master bedroom, you may also want to consider other areas in your home for your extra bathroom. If you’re looking to build a powder room, the space under your staircase is usually an ideal location. Wide, empty hallways can also be a good candidate for your new bathroom’s location.
Remodeling costs depend on the scale of the project, materials, labor and design. Make sure to obtain a detailed written estimate so that you’ll have a clear idea of the expenses you need to prepare for.
