When you begin a home project it can be stressful especially when you are remodeling the most frequently used rooms in your house like the kitchen and bathroom!
A bathroom remodel is no place for improvisation. Before ripping out the first tile, think hard about how you will use the space, what materials and fixtures you want, and how much you’re willing to spend. The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) recommends spending up to six months evaluating and planning before beginning work.
Buyers are looking for updated sleek functional kitchen and bathrooms when viewing homes for sale in Lake Charles, LA.
A bathroom remodel is a solid investment, according to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report. A $16,600 bath remodel will recoup about 64% of those costs when it’s time to sell your home, and a more extensive $53,800 job returns about 57%. Whether you just choose to give your kitchen or bath a facelift or a complete remodel, selecting the fixtures and faucets will be important.
Buyers will notice most new construction homes have the brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze faucets. Chrome is still popular also especially in bathrooms. In 2007 more than 60% of consumers purchased chrome, whereas now less than 50% do. That leaves stainless steel and brushed nickel growing in popularity.
Oil rubbed bronze has grown in popularity for the kitchen faucets. It’s all about choices and when you go shopping for those kitchen and bath faucets you will have a wide variety to choose from.
