Bathroom remodel (upscale)
Average cost: $64,743
Return on investment: 60.2%
Maybe you’ve considered giving one of your bathrooms a facelift. This upscale bathroom remodel expands a 35-square-foot bathroom to 100 square feet without enlarging the home’s footprint.
The shower has ceramic tile walls, body spray fixtures, a frameless glass enclosure and a recessed shower caddy. The project includes a freestanding soaker tub with high-end faucets, a double vanity with stone countertop and mirrored medicine cabinets. The toilet is housed in its own compartment.
As luxurious as that sounds, the next homeowner may not be willing to pay top dollar for your design choices. Remodeling Magazine estimates a return of just $38,952.
