4 Reasons to Remodel Your Bathroom

A bathroom remodel can be a time-consuming and costly project, but can bring many benefits. Remodeling your bathroom can be a great investment for your home and your future. Here are four reasons you should consider remodeling your bathroom:

Fix Damage

Older bathrooms often have some damage including: chipped tiles, leaking shower valves, and outdated toilets. Although these issues might not seem like a big deal, they can cause germs and bacteria to build up. Remodeling your bathroom will fix all the damage, bring everything up-to-date, and get rid of most of the room’s bacteria.

Increase Resale Value

Most people think about remodeling their kitchens to boost resale value, but remodeling your bathroom can be equally effective. Potential buyers tend to value kitchens and bathrooms the most, so a newly-remodeled bathroom will be a great selling point. Bathrooms also usually provide the highest return on investment of all remodeling projects. On average, homeowners receive about 70 cents back for every dollar they spend on remodeling their bathroom. In addition to being able to enjoy a nicer bathroom, you’ll also get back most of the money you spent.

Add Extra Space

A cramped bathroom can cause many frustrations in your day. There might not be enough space to keep towels, cleaning products, or other items. It might not be comfortable to try to navigate around a tiny bathroom. When you remodel, you can expand or streamline the room so it becomes more spacious. This will make the room look better, make it much easier to store items, and navigate around the room.

Prepare for the Future

If you don’t plan on moving out of your home, remodeling your bathroom can help you prepare for the future. For example, if you plan on having kids, you can add safety features to your bathroom while you remodel. Older adults can install grab bars or shower seats during a remodel so the bathroom is easier to use as they age. This way, while big life changes are happening, you don’t have to worry about making alterations to your bathroom. You’ll have already taken care of the problem, and you can focus on everything else that needs your attention.
