How Updating Your Bathroom Tiles Can Improve Your Home’s Resale Value

You may find it surprising that switching out your bathroom tiles can help you sell your home. However, think about the finishing touches you often make to your home before an open house – new coat of paint, fresh flowers on the countertop, throw blanket draped around the chair. Since the bathroom is an extremely important room in the home, why not make a minor adjustment to help boost appeal?

Use a Few New Tiles

Floor tiles tend to crack or break slightly and older shower tiles often get discolored. If this is the case, replace these so they don’t become a focal point in the home. However, please note that if the replacement tile is much different than what you currently have, this could end up being much more alarming than a small crack.

A couple small cracks aren’t really a huge deal but when the cracks go throughout the entire tile, you should check the subflooring and waterproof membrane beneath the tiles. By regularly cleaning the tiles, you can also avoid discoloration.

New Backsplash

If you have a beautiful, historic New England home then you most likely have an old bathroom. By simply installing a glass tile backsplash, you can capture quite a bit of attention. For those of you with neutral bath décor, a mosaic glass tile will really dress up the bathroom and make it appear more modern. Oversized wall tile will also enhance a classic white bathroom.

Glass Tile

Traditionally, homeowners will put glass tiles in one area such as a backsplash, but if you incorporate this throughout the entire space, you can really brighten up the bathroom. Reflect natural light and brighten up your bathroom with glass tiles behind open shelving. You can add a monochromatic color scheme as well which offers plenty of contrast.
