From clogged toilets to a lack of ample shower time, thereís always an issue of too many people and too little bathrooms in a home. Most people will agree that one bathroom isnít enough in a home. Yet, while youíre on the hunt for a home, should you decide to just settle for a single bathroom or keep hunting for a house with more bathrooms? There is always the additional option of putting in another bathroom as well, although this can be costly.  


 In todayís fast-paced world, we have new bathroom needs that make us look at properties differently. Different cultures are also accustomed to varying standards of bathrooms and home building, and find it a normalcy to have only one bathroom. Also, once upon a time, it was feasible for everyone to have people take their turn in the bathroom-even in America. As the family unit shifted and everyone in the house became accustomed to living on the same exact schedules, it became more necessary to have an extra bathroom. 


Age Of A Home   


While you can survive with one bathroom, the biggest message one bathroom in a home sends is that itís an older property. That may be the underlying factor that steers people away from one bathroom homes. Many realtors even warn of the difficulties in selling a one bathroom home. Ultimately, the decision is up to you. Thereís some things that you should consider when youíre searching for a home and are concerned about the number of bathrooms.


How Many Bathrooms Will You Actually Use?


If youíre a bachelor, living on your own, you may not need more than one full bathroom in a home. For comfort reasons, you could consider places with an additional half-bath, but it may not be necessary. If youíre planning on co-living with your in-laws or friends, youíll definitely need to consider your need for multiple private baths high.


Home Value


If you can afford the upfront cost, it could be well worth it to put a second bathroom into a one bathroom home. It will add a lot of value to the home once it is sold again and your family will have more privacy and space. Not to mention that your home will be more attractive to buyers once the time to sell does come. 


A Luxury


Homes with extra bathrooms are truly seen as a luxury. Have you ever seen celebrity homes advertised that have more bathrooms than there are bedrooms? Thereís probably little reason for that other than the luxury factor. Ultimately, your home search will be a bit harder when you seek out multiple bathrooms. However, if this will increase you and your familyís comfort, the time spent searching is definitely worth it! When youíre on the house hunt, the number and type of bathrooms are just one of many things that youíll need to consider.
