A bathroom remodel is a huge undertaking, but the end results can be huge. Whether you’re longing to remodel and are just looking for the perfect excuse, or whether you have a suspicion thought it’s time to make changes, these reasons to invest in a bathroom remodel will give you the necessary justification to take the necessary step and get it done.
There has been changes in your life
You purchased the house when it was just the two of you, and now you have a toddler with a baby on the way. Your tiny bathroom is already too squeezed for bathing the one toddler, but adding another one to the mix is going to make things even more complicated. Or you’re done raising children, are ready to retire, and you want to age in place. Or perhaps you’re taking in a roommate to help settle the mortgage, and you need more privacy. Whatever the change in your life, if your bathroom isn’t serving your well, that’s a good sign it’s time to invest in a bathroom remodel.
Home remodels often increase a home’s value and make it more desirable once you decide to sell it market. The National Association of the Remodeling Industry reports that a quality bathroom remodel will recoup 50% of the cost you put into the project. The fact is: people want nice bathrooms, and they could be turned away by a bathroom that is dated or lacking in certain features.
If your bathroom is old, it’s likely not using energy in an efficient way. Too much wasted water, poor lighting features, and more make the space not only less enjoyable to be in, but a big waste if money. This is a good time to think of energy-efficient toilets, showers, and more. Plus, if your bathroom is old enough that it doesn’t have sufficient air circulation, you could be dealing with mildew and mold. Getting a bathroom remodel will help save you a lot of money in the long run.
A bathroom remodel is a great time to think about the safety of the space. If you plan to age in place, or may one day want to sell your home, accessible bathrooms are a good idea. When getting a bathroom remodel, you can get a zero-threshold shower for ease in access of the shower. You can also consider non-slip tile, handrails, a shower seat, and more.
Water damage from a leak can be a great inconvenience in a home. Mold damage from uncirculated air is one other issues that can arise. Other coming damages in a bathroom include paint damage from a curious butter-knife-wielding toddler, cracked tile from the time your teenager thought lifting weights (and dropping them) in the bathroom was a good idea etc.
Whatever the reason, if you have damage in your bathroom, take the time to remodel before it gets worse. A bathroom remodel done by a professional bath remodel contractor will fix all the damages in your bathroom.
It Doesn’t Look Good
Time changes and so does style. And if bathrooms don’t change with the styles, you just get to a point where one day you wake up and say, “This bathroom doesn’t impress you anymore.” It happens to everyone, and it’s as good a time as any to invest in a bathroom remodel. You deserve to love your space.
