Remodeling your bathroom can breathe new life into your home, and can be as simple as installing new cabinets and/or countertops, or redoing your shower and/or tub. Some homeowners prefer to tear everything down to the studs and start over with a blank canvas. Like most remodeling projects, bathroom remodels depend on your goals and budget.

“It’s important to clarify your bathroom remodeling goals,” said Alan Lau, Kama’aina Plumbing’s remodeling specialist. “Are you hoping to increase your home’s value by modernizing the bathroom’s design? Is this an ADA renovation for an elderly homeowner? Bathroom remodeling projects usually fall into two categories: luxury versus necessity.”

If you have an older home in need of updating, remodeling the bathroom first can help you set the color scheme and style of the rest of the house, but in a smaller and more manageable space. Understanding what you want to achieve in your space, even if it’s as simple as replacing the sink or cabinets, will help you with your long-term remodeling goals.



National Association for Realtors (NAR) studies show that for every dollar spent on a home renovation project, homeowners see an average return of 71 cents. Similarly, potential home buyers place great importance on a remodeled bathroom, and sellers with one are twice as likely to sell their home at asking price.

“Next to the kitchen, ‘are the bathrooms updated,’ is usually the second most common question home buyers ask us,” said Nina Climante of the NAR. “And to some buyers, it is the single most important feature of a home.”
