Prospective home buyers often value bathrooms greatly, but a home not having a good mix of bathrooms might sell poorly. Full and three-quarter baths in a home are often more attractive than half-baths at home sale time, for one. And home buyers with children often want home bathrooms with tubs for the kids and showers for the adults. However, as the size and amenities in a bathroom grow, so does the cost.
Is it one that will be used by parents, young children and grandparents alike? More of us live in these multi-generational households nowadays and there’s great pleasure in the emotional closeness, bonding and companionship that come with that. Grandparents can play a key role, not just as carers for kids, but also as role models. But it can mean taking into account quite a range of needs.
