Part 2: Getting Your Bathrooms Ready for Holiday Guests
The holidays often mean your home will be entertaining more guests and the bathroom will see a fair share of that traffic. Does your powder room need a facelift? Do you need an extra bathroom to accommodate a houseful of overnight guests? Here are some ideas to help make your bathroom more inviting and comfortable for guests.
If your home or bathroom is 20+ years or older, you may have a layout that needs an update. There are plenty of ways to update your bathroom to make it feel larger. If you have several bathrooms in your home, you may not need to have bath tubs in all of them. Often, a tub can be converted into a shower and you can pick up 12-15 square feet of additional space. Adding a skylight or window to a bathroom will bring in additional light to brighten the space.
Consider updating old powder rooms by tearing out the old builder grade built-in cabinets and dressing it up with a new vanity that looks more like furniture. This can make the space feel comfy and inviting. Don’t forget to include the powder room in your holiday decorating. Adding a touch of holiday cheer to the powder room is another way to create a warm space. Adding a basket filled with small ornaments or a little evergreen can make the space warm and cozy.
Adding Another Bathroom
One of the best home improvements you can make is the addition of a bathroom. Your guests will appreciate the added privacy and convenience of having their own bathroom, and you’ll get a nice return on your investment whenever you decide to sell!
