After spending so much time discussing kitchen renovations, it's time to move to the other most popular room to remodel . . . the bathroom! According to the Remodeling 201011 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com),
the national average of the cost recouped from a bathroom remodel was 70%. This high return on investment makes bathrooms one of the top rooms to renovate to increase the value of a home.
Stayed tuned to our blog for future posts on the different steps and decisions required in a bathroom renovation. But first, for a little inspiration, here are a few award-winning bathroom designs from the National Kitchen and Bath Association
(NKBA) as well as the natural stones that were used to achieve their luxurious looks.
