13 Aug Question on repurposing an old bathroom space
I just finished an addition that added a bedroom and bath on the first floor, and a rec room/bedroom and bath in the basement.
The old bathroom needs to either be gutted and renovated (built in 1952 and never updated), or repurposed. It's next to the kitchen, so I'm thinking about taking out the bathroom (40 sq ft) and expanding the kitchen (140 sq ft) or adding a pantry. Another option is to convert the bathroom space into a laundry room.
Which would give me the best return on investment?
The house, with the addition and current bath is three bedroom and three bathrooms. It's a ranch with a two car garage and a finished basement.
Edit: One other idea is to take out the bathroom and put in a front door.
I'm in central New England.
Here's a link to to floor plans. A little blurry. Sorry.
