We purchased a 3000sf home with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths that we're completely renovating before moving in. The main bathroom is long and narrow. Our plan is to replace flooring, the double vanity and all fixtures. We also want to remove the tub to be replaced with a large walk-in shower.
On second thought, the space is large enough to create 2 smaller separate baths. This would give each of the 2 bedrooms on that side of the house its own bath... one bath would be accessed directly from within a bedroom, the other accessed from a hall (so it could still be used by visiting guests). Of course, this means a bit more work... mainly replumbing for the additional shower, toilet and single vanity... plus a bit of wall building. I've attached 'before and after' concept sketches.
My question is, does anyone know the relative typical resale value of adding an additional bathroom to a home? Would the investment be worth the extra cost?
