Remodeling your bathroom ranks with a kitchen remodel as one of America’s most popular major home improvements. While a simple bathroom spruce-up involving a new vanity top, light fixture, and accessories can be done for under $1000, many people are choosing to yank everything out and start from scratch. A completely new bathroom can cost $10,000 or more. Here are some of the benefits a bathroom remodel can do for your home.

Increase Value of your Home
Bathroom remodels can dramatically increase the value of your home. By replacing outdated features with modern and energy efficient baths, toilets and sinks you can increase the value of your home. In addition to getting a higher return on investment, you will get the peace of mind that your house will be easier to sell.

Correct Certain Features
Whether it is a sink that perpetually leaks or cracked tiles, a bathroom renovation gives the homeowner the opportunity to fix any unsafe features or dangerous components in your bathroom.

Add More Space
Another huge benefit of remodeling your bathroom is the space gained in your bathroom. You can now make a small bathroom feel more spacious by remodeling it. Take advantage of the creative bathroom trends and de-clutter your bathroom. Open up the room, change the design and replace old furniture to enjoy a real change in your bathroom.

These homes bring in savings of $1.5 billion worth of energy costs and 70 billion gallons of water.
