Best Renovations & Home Improvements – Add Bedroom / Bathroom
5) Add Bedroom / Bathroom
If you have plans to sell your house or renovation project after completion, adding a new bedroom or bathroom can help you attract buyers. Don’t forget that existing space can be divided by removing and adding walls. This will help you create extra bedrooms for your kids or guests.
Re-using or re-configuring existing space is cheaper than new additions, but it’s only possible in homes with large bedrooms of course. The ideal bedroom to bathroom ratio is 3:2. If you have three bedrooms, you should have two bathrooms to maximize the value of your home.
Another improvement you can consider is to turn less frequented space into a home office or activity room – or convert it into a home gym so that you can exercise at home.
