WHAT’S GOT BUYERS ALL LATHERED UP? THE BATHROOM. Like the kitchen, this room gives developers and homeowners an opportunity to express a home’s character and distinctiveness through well-considered design details. And while generally limited in square footage, there are no limits to possibilities and a big reason why this is where you will spend most money per square foot in renovation costs. It is strange but true, the smallest room in your home can either make a sale – or sink it.
“Bathrooms are such a key part in the design of a home. As important as the kitchen but much more intimate. In bathrooms it’s all about moods. The right kind of lighting is essential. They should be flexible: go from bright flattering light, to apply makeup or to a more moody environment for an end of day salt bath. Textures are important too. Upsetting the coldness of the stone with warmer, earthier materials like concrete tiles or wood accents. Not every wall needs or has to be a statement, choose a beautiful slab of stone and apply it strategically in your key feature walls. Painted walls that are in none wet areas are great opportunities both for the bathroom to breath and for a beautiful art.”
