Do you throw parties a lot? This is a perfect reason to add either a half bathroom or a full bathroom. You can have one designated bathroom for guest to use once they are at your house.
If you have elderly family members, consider adding an on suite or lower floor bathroom. This will make it easier for them to get around.
If the toilet stops working in one bathroom, you’ll have a backup!
The National Association of Home Builders reports that adding a half-bath to your home increases the value of an average home by 10% and adding a full bath boosts the value by 20%.
Do the kids fight over the bathroom in the morning? Are you racing to get in the bathroom before they wake up? If you had a second bathroom, you wouldn’t have to worry about it! Consider adding a master bathroom onto your room to avoid sharing. You’d think that the smallest room in the house would require less planning. Yet, this room gets lots of activity so, master bath floor plans require as much planning as a kitchen.
Did you have a long week and want to soak in the tub? You can take as much time in the bathroom without someone yelling they need the bathroom.
