Bathroom Design Sarasota - Bradenton
A bathroom is a necessity, a second bath, or even a third or fourth is a luxury. If you line up in the mornings to get into your bathroom, a second bath may be for you! Perhaps you just want your own private master bath, one that guests and children never venture into.
Regardless of the reason you wish to add a bathroom, there are many things to consider. Some of which are:
- Where would you like to add a bathroom?
- Are you interested in a full or partial bath?
- Shall it be private or shared?
- Is there a closet, or other room that space can be borrowed from?
- Will you want any luxury items?
These are all just ideas to get your creative thoughts flowing when designing your dream bathroom. You don’t need to have all the answers, but here are a few things to think about.
If reseal value is a consideration, a home should be designed with the same number of bathrooms as bedrooms. Also ideal in the bathroom design would be that one bathroom has a tub and one a walk in shower, or the bathroom can be designed with an option of both. Here is the Sarasota - Bradenton area, a large percentage of the population is nearing or past retirement age. This specific segment of the population values a bathroom design that does not require stepping into a tub to shower, as well as the uneven bottom which could contribute to slips and falls.
As a rule of thumb, adding a half bath only increases the value of a home by about 10% whereas a full bath increases the value by about 20%. Adding a well planned bathroom as a second bath can even be the difference between your house selling when the time comes as opposed to sitting on the market. Many people won’t even look at a home with only one bath.
There are many more things to take into account when considering the design of an additional bathroom. Beyond the logical, consider that adding a bathroom is far more than an investment in the resale of your home. It is a very personal room, and can be a highly personalized room. Your bathroom can make you feel as though you are a king or queen getting ready for court, or as though you are standing in a broom closet getting ready for work.
