Charlotte Bathroom Remodeling Trends Help Increase Home Values

Bathroom Remodeling
The volatile real estate market in Charlotte means that many homeowners are staying in their homes for longer periods of time. According to a recent survey by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, 87% of homeowners said they plan to stay in their homes one to twenty years longer than pre-downturn. As a result of this, many homeowners are turning to remodeling projects to update or repair their homes.

“We’ve seen a steady increase in Charlotte home remodeling projects,” says Adam Ferrara of Beck Design Group, a Greater Charlotte kitchen and bath remodeling company. “Homeowners are staying put so they want to make the necessary upgrades and updates in their homes.” 

One of the best ways to invest in your home is by remodeling your bathroom. Investing in a bathroom remodel has the ability to increase your home’s resale value and create a more personal space. 

“The truth is, according to most realtors, a bathroom renovation can help boost the resale value of your home and even possibly help it sell faster,” said Ferrara. 

Below are a few of Charlotte’s hottest trends in bathroom remodeling that can add to the overall value of your home.

Dual Flush Toilet
  • More Spacious Showers – Homeowners are opening up the shower to give it a more luxurious feel. In smaller bathrooms, they are removing the tub to expand the shower.
  • Dual-Flush Toilets – Homeowners and buyers are demanding green technology and energy-saving features. Duel-flush toilets are a hot new technology that uses more water to flush solids than to flush liquids.
  • Automatic Lighting Dimmers – Leaving the light or the fan running increases your energy bill. These dimmers provide an automated solution that will turn the light and fan off after a certain period of time.
  • More Storage Space – Homeowners and buyers are seeking more storage space. One way homeowners are creating this additional space is by moving away from two-bowl sinks in favor of one, leaving more counter space for storage.
