7 Reasons to Remodel your Bathroom
Whether the bathroom is outdated, pipes or other things are broken, or you are just unhappy with the look of it, bathroom remodels are a necessity for every homeowner. Below are some of the reasons why you should consider remodeling your bathroom.
Increasing Homes Value
Redesign to your Liking
Get Rid of Mold and Mildew
Better Lighting and Ventilation
1. Increasing your Home’s Value
Buying an older home is a smart investment, and updating a bathroom is a great place to start renovating a home to help increase the value. And it is a great selling point for the next potential owner!
2. You get to Redesign it to Your Liking
It is a great idea to hire someone yourself if the previous owners did not fix or update the bathroom. You get to choose how you want it to look! Sometimes the bathrooms are overlooked or are often designed to look functional instead of beautiful. You spend a lot of time in your bathroom each day getting ready or relaxing, why not have it look and feel like a spa!
3. Reduce Potential Plumbing Problems
Replacing a section of a pipe or a fitting is common, but how long has it been since the pipes were installed? The pipes could already be accumulating rust or water deposit buildups. Having new pipes would ensure water can flow through the pipes freely and most efficiently. As a bonus, having water come through clean pipes means cleaner hair! Replacing pipes sooner than later is best because if a pipe bursts or leaks, you may have to tear apart your bathroom to fix everything. That bill will be much higher, guaranteed!
4. Get Rid of Mold or Mildew
Mold and mildew thrive in warm and humid environments. Worst of all, mold is not always visible and can affect your health in many ways. If the ventilation has not been used or is not working properly, mold can start appearing in the corners of the room, in the fan itself, or anywhere else in the bathroom where moisture can be trapped. If left untreated, mold issues become worse over time and it is more difficult to get rid of.
5. Ensure Everything is Sealed Properly
Water damage is common and can cause all sorts of headaches in the future. Damaged or unsealed tiles and old flooring will allow moisture to escape. Anytime you step out of the shower, water could be going underneath the flooring and ruining the floorboards. We would be happy to inspect your current bathroom situation and provide a free estimate.
6. Better Lighting
Lighting is especially important when putting on makeup, shaving, doing your hair, etc. If you do not have enough space in your bedroom to accommodate a nice vanity with good lighting, then adding this to your bathroom is the best option. It can be frustrating when you do your makeup or hair at home and not realize the flaws until you go out somewhere with better lighting.
7. A Clean and Nice Place for Guests
It is likely that guests will need to use the bathroom while at your place. When it is not clean or usable, it can be somewhat embarrassing. Having a bathroom that is clean, modern, and updated will help you say yes to having guests over more often and will also give your guests peace of mind knowing that everything is clean.
Overall, remodels can be time-consuming when doing it yourself and no one wants to go without one of their bathrooms for an extended period-of-time. A professional can give you an idea of your bathroom’s condition as well as the best materials and layout to utilize your bathroom to its full extent.
