Adding or expanding a bathroom can add tremendous value to your home besides making it more livable! Bathroom additions can be costly because they involve plumbing, electrical as well as basic new construction expenses, but keep in mind that values around 50% - 60% of the costs should be returned.
The existing layout of your home would have to be modified in order to gain the square footage required for a new bathroom, for example, some space might be taken from a closet, family room, dining room or a bedroom, unless you plan to build on to a section of your home. The same is true if you’re planning to expand and remodel an existing bathroom. Although certain areas of your home might be reduced in order to accommodate a new bathroom, the outcome will make your home more functional, valuable and enjoyable.
