Convert Half Bathroom to Full Bathroom – Chicago (Lincoln Park)

lincoln park half to full bath

Does it make sense to convert a “powder” half bathroom to full bathroom?  There are mixed reviews on whether to take the plunge and add that bathtub/shower area to an existing half bathroom.  Here are some factors to consider.

  1.   Where is the half bathroom located?
  2.   Does the half bathroom have the needed space to create the space needed?
  3.   How does the market value differ from having a full bathroom rather than a half bathroom?

Find the answers to the above questions.  (see below)

ANSWERS:

  • The half bathroom was located in the master bedroom making shower accessibility convenient for the homeowner.
