Are you thinking about remodeling your bathroom, but you’re not entirely sure if and when you should do it? Whether you just bought a new home, you’re ready to sell your current home, or you want to give your home a fresh new look, you’ve most certainly considered a bathroom remodel.
In most circumstances, you can’t go wrong with transforming your bathroom into the functional yet peaceful paradise you’ve always wanted. However, if you’re on the fence about remodeling, the following five reasons should be enough to convince you to give your bathroom the transformation it needs:
1. Family Needs
As your family grows, the way your bathroom is used will likely change. That’s why it is often recommended that you remodel your bathroom as the dynamic of your family changes to accommodate any particular needs. If you need to add extra storage space, a bathtub, or a grab bar around the toilet and in the shower, remodeling your bathroom will make it easy to accommodate such changes.
2. Lifestyle Changes
Whether you’re a new empty nester, or you’ve recently started a high-stress job, a lifestyle change is the perfect reason to give your bathroom a new look. By remodeling your bathroom, you’ll be able to do the following to accommodate the unique needs that may have surfaced as a result of your lifestyle change:
• Increase or decrease the overall size of the bathroom
• Add, or make better use of cabinetry
• Add essential features required by your new lifestyle
• Change the overall ambience of the bathroom
3. Limited Space
Remodeling your bathroom allows you to deal with limited space in two specific ways:
• Increase the overall floor size of the bathroom
• Make better use of the available space
If your bathroom is disproportionately smaller than the rest of your home, then increasing its floor size makes the most sense. However, if you don’t have the extra room in your home to expand your bathroom, then making more efficient use of the space you have may be the best option. You may choose to replace your current cabinetry, or change the room’s floor plan. In either case, you’ll be able to increase the amount of space you have in your bathroom, regardless of your budget.
4. Mold and Mildew Issues
The presence of mold and mildew typically means that your bathroom is not controlling moisture how it should. Mold is particularly problematic, as it could cause health issues, and even damage the structure of your home. By remodeling, you’ll be able to remove the mold while improving the bathroom’s ability to control moisture and upgrading its construction.
5. Updating an Outdated Look
The fifth and final reason to remodel is purely for aesthetic reasons. If the look of your bathroom is outdated and doesn’t match the rest of your home, then it’s time for you to remodel it. Transforming the look of your bathroom will give more balance to your home, while giving you more reason to use it as the retreat you’ve always wished it would be.
It should be noted that we left out one other key reason. Remodeling your bathroom is also a great way to boost the resale value of your home. If you are planning on selling your home, or you’re flipping a home you recently acquired, you may be able to increase the amount you make from the sale by transforming the look of the bathrooms.
