Choosing to renovate the bathroom in your house is a huge project that can end up being a healthy return on your initial investment. It does not matter whether you have been considering remodeling the bathroom for a while, or if it is time for an upgrade, the following 6 reasons are enough justification to move forward with your next renovation project.
Life Is Different
Perhaps when you first purchased your house, it was just you and your spouse. However, you now have an active toddler running around and another child is on its way. You are finally realizing that the bathroom is just too small to bathe one child, and there will be even less space once the baby arrives.
On the other side of the coin, maybe all of your children are grown and out of the house, you are retired and you are looking to make your home comfortable so you can age in place.
Or, you may have decided to get a roommate to help with the household expenses and you need an additional bathroom for extra privacy. Whatever changes you are currently going through in your life, and your current bathroom is not up to the task, that is a sign that you may need to make the investment in a bathroom renovation.
When renovations are done correctly, they can increase the value of the house. This means that you can ask more money during the selling process and your house will be more attractive to homebuyers. In fact, most people desire to have nice, updated bathrooms and could walk away from a house that has a bathroom with dated fixtures or is not functional.
If you have an older bathroom, it is highly likely that it is not energy-efficient. Issues such as bad lightning fixtures and wasting excess water can not only make the bathroom uncomfortable, but it can also cost you more money in energy and utility bills.
This is the perfect opportunity to install energy-efficient showers, sinks, toilets and other fixtures. Furthermore, if your older bathroom has poor air circulation, you may also have mold and mildew concerns as well.
When planning a bathroom renovation, you must also consider safety. Whether you are planning to sell your house, or you want to age in the home, it is always a good idea to make sure the bathroom is as accessible as possible.
During the renovation, you can have some of the following features installed:
– Shower seat
– Non-slip tile
– Zero-threshold shower
Repair Any Damage In The Bathroom
Over time, your bathroom could become damaged. Whether it is mold as the result of poor air ventilation, water damage from an overflowing toilet, paint damage and cracked tiles, it is best to repair the damage through a remodel before it becomes a lot worse.
The Bathroom Looks Old
As time goes on, styles begin to change. What was chic and trendy five years ago is now considered out of style and old-fashioned. If you are at a point where you just do not love the look of your bathroom anymore, you should go ahead and invest in some renovations. You should love your bathroom space because you deserve to.
