Bathroom Faucets

How much value does it add to change the faucets in your bathrooms? 2 of my bathrooms have what I would call old fashioned (circa 1997) porcelain and chrome handles. I am thinking of replacing them with more contemporary fixtures... but my neighbor says they are "fine". Everything else is pretty neutral and could pass for today's style. Would changing the faucets make it more appealing or do people overlook those things?

 I would guess that only a small percentage of people notice these things while looking at a home they are interested in.  An even smaller percentage will dwell on  them.

I think it all depends on the buyer.  Luck of the draw I guess.  Some care, some don't.

 Most buyer would just go and pay the $120 bucks and go pick their own after they buy a place. If you had a ugly gold thing from the 60's that leaked then you should change it for sure. if its neutral and works I wouldnt spend the $.

i think if there are lots of little things like that throughout the house, it may nag on someone- since small/minor change outs do add up. but if the faucets are really the only thing that someone walking through would want to change- no big deal.
