When you move into a starter home, you should get into the mindset that you will eventually list the home for sale with the intent to showcase the features around the house. This means that you will find it beneficial to avoid making changes that cater specifically to your preferences.
If you would like to remodel the main bathroom in the house, you should think about getting what you want and need while also making improvements that will impress future buyers.
Changing how the bathroom looks is something that you will be able to do with almost any adjustment or addition that you make to the room. If the paint on the trim and walls is old and worn out, you should consider going with a neutral color scheme for everything. This will still give you a lot of options since there are plenty of neutral colors that you can use, such as white, gray, black, and brown, along with the different shades that exist with these colors.
Another way that you can change how the bathroom looks is by replacing the hardware for the door, faucet, and windows. Replacing all the hardware at the same time is ideal because mismatching hardware can make the bathroom look less appealing to potential buyers.
Another upgrade that you can make to the bathroom is with the lighting. If you are lacking light around the mirror, you should not hesitate to change the light fixture or add more lighting to avoid a situation in which your family feels like the bathroom has lackluster lighting.
Lighting with high wattage bulbs is sometimes tough to balance because as soon as you turn the lights on, you might feel like the light is excessive at times. Fortunately, you can fix this problem by switching to dimmable lights to help you get just the right amount of light at all times.
While light fixtures will play a role in the lighting for the bathroom, you should also consider adding a rather unique feature -- a skylight. Even if you have windows that maintain complete privacy for anyone using the bathroom, you may not be able to get much natural light because of how the windows are set up. This is something that you can fix with a skylight since it will be installed overhead where it can provide ample natural light without ever sacrificing your privacy.
Making these changes to your main bathroom will improve the room while also making it more desirable for buyers in the future. You can contact a bathroom remodeling contractor in your area for more information.
