6 Features That Home Buyers Really Want in a Master Bathroom

The number of bathrooms in a home is important to a home buyer. Most buyers are looking for a home with a family bathroom, a powder room, and a master bathroom; of those three, the master bathroom has become a much sought-after location for a private retreat.

Whether you’re looking to sell your home immediately or not, if a bathroom renovation is in your future, you may want to consider these six features that home buyers really want in a master bathroom.

Neutral Ambiance

The bathroom is a place where home buyers want to feel relaxed. They want a spa-like atmosphere, a calm, clean, neutral ambiance that is created using natural decor elements, and a light, neutral colour palette. When plants are added, it makes the environment appear even more warm and serene.

The shower typically gets used more often than the bathtub in most homes so home buyers want bigger showers with added features like multiple shower heads, built-in seats and frameless glass enclosures. Steam showers have also become an extremely hot commodity. A steam shower offers many options like aromatherapy, rain-like overhead shower, foot massage, music, phone connection, overhead LED lights, body jets and steam showers. Bathtubs are still desirable but freestanding soaker tubs are more popular than the built-in tubs with jets.


Heated floors

Heated floors are a great addition to any spa-themed master bathroom. These floors are a luxurious option that add a “wow” factor for many home buyers. There are two different kinds of radiant flooring: electric and hydronic. The electric uses heated coils and the hydronic uses heated water in tubing. The average cost to install bathroom floor heating for 100 square feet is about $600. Having warm feet on a cold day…priceless.

Updated fixtures

Home buyers want bathroom fixtures that are beautiful, functional and conserve water. Saving money and the planet are both important, and doing so in style will catch a home buyer’s eye. Brushed nickel fixtures add a classic elegance to a space while chrome is sleek and usally more affordable. Advancing technology now offers home buyers hands-free fixtures which many home buyers are looking for. Choosing the right fixtures can make or break the look of a master bathroom, and home buyers are looking for the whole package.

Lighting that shines

Choosing the right lighting is crucial when creating a tranquil atmosphere in the master bathroom. Poorly lit bathrooms are uninviting, but you can brighten up a space by adding mirrors and a variety of lights at different levels to take your bathroom to the next level. Controlling each light with a dimmer switch allows the bathroom to transform into the peaceful oasis home buyers desire.

Storage space

Home buyers are always interested in storage space throughout a home, and the bathroom is no exception. Plenty of quality cabinetry is a necessity. Take the time to organize the inside of your cabinets to avoid the appearance of clutter. Effective planning means having enough room for toiletries and towels, while maintaining a retreat like ambiance.
