Boost Your Home’s Value with Bathroom Renovations in Cairns
There are plenty of reasons to update an old-fashioned bathroom, including improved functionality, energy efficiency, aesthetics, safety, and accessibility. Bathroom and kitchen renovations have long been considered the two most popular bathroom renovations in Cairns for adding value to your property. So, how much should you spend on a bathroom renovation? Intrust Group takes a look at the top bathroom renovations to add impact to your home and boost the value of your home.
How Much Should You Spend?
Bathrooms are one of the most expensive renovations you can do in your home, so it is crucial to plan your budget accordingly and follow the golden rules:
- Don’t overspend
- Follow good trends
- Add quality fixtures
As a general guide, property agents estimate that the bathroom renovation should be no more than 1.5% of your property value, with 50% allocated for labour and 50% for parts and materials. The average bathroom renovation in Australia, in 2023, is about $21,120.
The Impact of Bathroom Renovations
The most impactful bathroom renovations in Cairns involve increasing the size or number of bathrooms in your home. Even a small additional bathroom can add value to your home, particularly if you have a growing family. As you and your extended family get older, you may need to add safety and mobility features to prevent slippage and make your bathroom accessible. Some of the most popular trends in bathroom renovations include tile and grout replacement, his and hers basins, double-glazed windows, extra storage, water-saving and energy-efficiency features, barrier-free showers, and new flooring. On average a bathroom renovation adds a 62% return on your original outlay.
