The Master Bath You’ve Been Dreaming Of…

Imagine having a space in your home that helps wake up your mind and body in the morning and helps you to unwind after a long day.  Your master bath could be that space.  With the right features, your master bath can turn into an oasis that will also increase your home’s value!

Heated Floors
No one likes waking up and stepping barefoot onto cold tile floor.  Consider adding radiant heating when remodeling your bathroom!  Radiant heating also tends to be more energy efficient, which makes this investment the perfect mix of desirable and practical.
Update The Exhaust Fan
Did you know that an exhaust fan is one of the most requested bathroom features for home buyers?  Make sure yours is up to par in fighting mold and humidity with an upgrade!  There are humidity-controlled fans, fans with nightlights, and many other customizable features you can have in a new exhaust fan.
Dual Flush Toilet
Your water bill (and the environment) will thank you if you make the switch to an efficient dual-flushing toilet!  These toilets allow you to regulate the amount of water used when you flush the toilet. These are a must for new or remodeled bathrooms, and it will definitely add value to your home when selling.
Multi-Head Shower
Make your shower a customizable experience with a multi-head shower!  You can place a rain shower above your head for when you want to relax, or strong jets to soothe sore muscles.  There are all sorts of different heads you can have in your shower, and you can pair this with a separate soaking tub for a truly relaxing experience.
Warming Lamp or Heating Rack
Not many things that feel better than a warm towel after stepping out of the shower or washing your face.  Installation of a heating towel rack right by the shower is a simple feature that warms you up any time of the year.


Going Green Brings In the Green

What’s the top priority on today’s homebuyer wish lists?

Green and energy-efficient features. That includes anything that conserves energy, water, and materials, while preserving both indoor and outdoor environmental quality.

For the first time, industry surveys show that the majority of both single-family and multi-family home developers are building at least 15 percent of their projects to green standards.

One in five single-family developers build more than 90 percent of their homes that way.

What does this mean for you?

If you have an older home, one of the best ways to build its resale value is to incorporate energy-efficient and green principles into any remodels or home improvements. That’s especially important around heating, cooling and appliances. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the age of a home has a major impact on how many BTUs (the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit) are used each year:

Homes built in the 2000s – 37,100

Homes built in the 1980s and 1990s – 43,500

Homes built prior to 1940 – 51,600
