Five signs it’s time to remodel your bathroom
If you’re wondering if it’s time to remodel the bathroom, we’ve got some advice to help you make the big decision. There are plenty of good reasons to update your bathroom, from making safer for you and your family, to saving on your water and energy bills.
Renovating the bathroom might seem daunting at first, but most updates can be made quickly, and many are ones you can do yourself. Take a look at our list below of some big signs that it’s time to remodel the bathroom.
It’s outdated. This one of the biggest reasons many of our customers have opted to remodel their bathrooms – or at least the master bathroom. Of course, it all boils down here to personal taste. If your style has changed but the bathroom hasn’t it, may be time for an upgrade.
Usually, this is a project that’s more fun than anything else. It’s a great opportunity to buy new floor mats or rugs, paint the walls a new color, buy a new shower curtain, replace the sink or mirror, change up the lighting, and splurge on accessories like a new massaging shower head or an aromatherapy diffuser.
It’s in a state of constant repair. Your bathrooms are some of the hardest working rooms in your home, and they’re subject to a lot of wear and tear over the years. If you’re finding yourself calling the plumber on a regular basis or repairing cracks and leaks in the bathroom – particularly leaks from the ceiling or the toilet – it’s time to consider remodeling the bathroom.
There are a couple of big benefits to remodeling your bathroom for this reason. First, it will make your bathroom safer and healthier because leaks can lead to mold which in turn can cause health issues. And, without all the leaks, you’ll be saving on your water bill.
Your needs have changed. Your home should grow with you, and as you get older, or if your family grows, it’s important that your bathroom stays updated to accommodate those changes. Perhaps you have a new baby, an elderly parent has come to live with you, or you’ve gotten a bit older yourself. If so, it may be time to modify your bathroom to fit your needs.
You’re selling your home. Studies shown that having an updated bathroom can help your home sell quicker and increase its ROI. Even easy changes, like a fresh coat of paint or a new toilet (installing one is easier than you may think) can be big motivators for buyers when they are considering buying your home.
You need more storage. If you’re storing extra towels in a closet in the bedroom, it may be time to upgrade your bathroom’s storage options. Cabinets and bins are a great investment, as are shelving systems that make use of wall space. You could also consider adding space with more major remodeling projects, like eliminating the bathtub and installing an enclosed shower instead, to make more room.
Even little updates can help save you money, elevate your bathroom’s comfort and style, and mean better safety and health for you and your family. In fact, we think any time is the right time for a little bathroom remodeling.
