Can a New Bathtub Raise Your Home’s Value?

November 5, 2019

If you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom, then you may be thinking about what this remodel will do to your home’s value. Putting in a new bathtub will increase your home’s value, but by how much? And what kind of ROI (return on investment) can you get?

Here at Bath Doctor, we’ve been helping Marylanders remodel their bathrooms for years, and we wanted to take some time today to talk about the benefits that can come along with a new bathtub.

Extra Baths Add to the Value

The National Association of Home Builders has reported that adding a half-bath increases the value of a home by 10.5% and adding a full bath increases the value by 20%. Remodeling or installing a new bathroom is one of the best ways to add value to your home.

Another thing to consider would be the number of bedrooms relative to the number of bathrooms. If you have more bedrooms than bathrooms, adding a bathroom will add even more value.

Update Your Old Bathtub

If the bathtub in your bathroom is a bit outdated, then putting a new bathtub in can really make your home more appealing to prospective buyers. When your realtor is showing off your bathroom, you want anyone looking to be able to visualize themselves taking a nice relaxing bath in there. This can be hard to do with a bathtub design from 50 years ago, but is easy to do with a modern tub.

Keep Your Tub

Nowadays many people are choosing to completely remove their tub, instead opting for large walk-in showers. This is a choice that is entirely up to the homeowner, but you shouldn’t just blindly follow trends. Some home buyers would prefer a walk-in shower, but many still like having a tub to soak in and relax in at the end of the day. Despite recent trends, it still makes sense to have a bathtub in your Maryland home.
