Your bathroom is often the most used room in your home. It is usually one room that doesn't get remodeled as often as some of the other rooms in your home. It often costs more than most people want to spend on one of the smallest rooms in your house. It can cost a pretty huge chunk of change to get new flooring, switch out old showers and tubs, knock out existing out-of-date tile or change vanities and lighting.Bathroom remodels are the most cost-effective (around 75% return) when major fixtures can remain in place, allowing you to focus on flooring, sink, vanity, mirrors, lighting and fresh paint.
