Three Factors That Affect A Half-Bathroom Addition
If you’re trying to add more value and convenience to your home, one of the best, most cost-effective ways to do this is to get bathroom remodeling companies to add an additional bathroom to your property. This is especially true if a home only has one or two bathrooms. However, adding even a small “half-bath” with just a toilet and sink means the following factors must be considered.
Where will you put this addition? If you’re thinking of a half-bath, you don’t need that much space. Planned correctly, even a 25-square foot space can fit a toilet, sink, and even shower stall. Even smaller spaces can accommodate just a toilet and a sink.
These areas can be located just about anywhere, under a staircase, at the end of a hallway, or even in a large closet if the storage factor isn’t that critical.
Often this can overlap with location to be a major factor. For example, if your bathroom remodeling companies are renovating an existing bathroom and not moving any plumbing, this is the cheapest option. Adding a half-bath to an area near a water and drainage pipe is a comparatively low cost.
However, if the location of your new addition is far away from water and drain pipes, new connecting lines will need to be laid out to connect with the rest of the home.
Electrical & Ventilation
Finally, you’ll need to consider new wiring and probably ventilation options for the new addition. The presence of water from a toilet and sink always adds more moisture to a room. This is exacerbated even more if you put in a shower stall. Electricity is required for both the lights in the bathroom and the ventilation to help prevent mold formation in the new addition and retain its value.
