3 Tips for Remodeling a Second Bathroom

Most homeowners do not capitalize on the many advantages associated with updating a second bathroom.

While people spend the majority of their attention on master baths, that doesn’t mean the second bathroom should be ignored! From functionality to making your home more appealing to buyers, there are plenty of reasons why improving a second bathroom is worth the investment.


How should you remodel your second bathroom?


A Second Bathroom for Kids and Guests

After just a few instances of having to share your master bathroom with guests or children, you’ll understand why it’s so important to update your second bathroom! When you remodel a second bathroom, you want to make sure that it is durable and functional. Since the bathroom floor and fixtures will see a lot of wear and tear with children, focus on adding plastic laminate flooring and durable countertops. If your children mainly use this bathroom, they don’t care if the materials are not high end. Also, buy fixtures that come with a physical vapor deposition finish. It resists scratches.

Adventurous Second Bathrooms

Your main bathroom or master bathroom should generally feature conservative colors and timeless looking fixtures. With a second bathroom, however, you can let your imagination run wild. You can really create a unique theme within the smaller spaces of a second bathroom, and some homebuyers may appreciate the creativity the second bathroom offers. If a potential homebuyer isn’t a big fan of your second bathroom, that isn’t going to be something that kills the deal. Homebuyers are generally more concerned about major improvements and extensive work being needed for the main or master bathrooms.

Upgrades and Accessories in Second Bathrooms

Because second bathrooms are generally smaller, you may not need to do a complete overhaul in order to improve aesthetics and make it more functional. You could focus on improving individual pieces like the bathtub, sink and toilet, or you could even just change showerheads and vanities to add a fresh, new look. If you have younger children, a bathtub is sometimes the biggest area where homeowners look to add renovations and improvements. Are you ready to improve the aesthetics and functionality of your second bathroom?
