Add value to your home and grab buyers’ attention when it’s time to sell by giving an outdated vanity and countertops a makeover.
Countertops and cabinets are crucial to your bathroom's design, so be sure they make a positive statement. Unlike with the kitchen, you have more freedom to play with high-end
materials, like marble, since you won’t need as much of it with a smaller space.
”Don’t overdo it,” advises Leslie Sellers, president of the Appraisal Institute. If you put in marble counters and an expensive vanity, don’t assume you’ll get your entire investment back when you sell.
“The cost of tearing out and preparing the area before doing any construction is more than the cost of putting things in,” Sellers explains. “You may not get all your money back, but you do increase the marketability of your home.”
