How to Increase the Value of Your Home
Renovation to Do: Revamp Your Bathroom
A toilet that looks old, cracked or dirty (or doesn’t flush properly) is a turn-off—and the same goes for a vanity, which
should be eye-catching and practical. “Install a vanity that recesses into the wall, so it saves space,” advises Alen Moshkovich,
a broker for Douglas Elliman in New York City.
Proper lighting can also be a great value booster, such as adding a window in the bathroom, so natural light can illuminate the space.
