Spring time is right around the corner and you’re thinking about remodeling the kitchen or bathroom in your Austin Home but are not sure which option would make the best investment.

Although some Real Estate agents might tell you to remodel the kitchen in your home the reality is that it’s a better option to remodel your bathroom, here’s why:

Your Kitchen Remodel Might Not Appeal To Buyers

Although you may be excited about the remodeling the kitchen in your Austin home the reality is that your decorating choices might not appeal to some buyers if you plan on selling your home this year, especially when it comes to options like stainless steel or granite counter tops because, many people see those decorating choices as being outdated in 2016 and may even change them anyway once they buy your home.

Bathroom Remodels Are More Functional

Let’s face it, a bathroom that has a shower or tub is always going to be more functional than a kitchen that was recently renovated or remodeled. Why? The answer is simple everyone has things that they need “to do” in a bathroom and if your home has two full bathrooms compared to one and a half bathrooms this will help to increase the value of your home even more compared to just spending your money on renovating your kitchen.

Bathroom Renovation Tips

If you decide to renovate the bathroom in your Austin home make sure you follow the tips:

  •          Remove all carpeting from your bathroom because no home buyer likes to find carpeting in a bathroom due to germs.
  •          Replace tile flooring or counter tops.
  •          Add a Jack and Jill sink to your bathroom because this will give couples their own individual sink and plenty of room to get ready in the morning before they go to work.
  •          Create plenty of shelf space in the bathroom that you plan on renovating because, bathrooms almost always seem to be lacking sufficient storage space.
