The bathroom is a major room in your home. You spent a lot of time over the course of your life in a bathroom for personal hygiene and relaxation. So, keeping it up-to-date and functional is important. If you start to see parts breaking, cracking, or fixtures that aren’t working anymore, it’s probably time for a renovation project. You may want to just replace that broken light or get a new toilet, but just fixing up the entire space will solve your problems for a much longer period of time.
Why Do A Full Bathroom Renovation
If you are planning to sell your home in the next few years, prospective buyers will definitely be looking at your bathroom as a selling feature. If you don’t update your bathroom and it’s a bit dated and signs of wear and tear are visible, it can easily deter buyers away from your home. However, replacing that old bathroom with a new oasis will make it more attractive to potential buyers. Plus, if you aren’t selling so fast, you get to enjoy it yourself!
When remodelling your bathroom, you can reconfigure its layout to provide more storage space. You can make space for cabinets, and drawers, or add new shelving. You’ll be able to better organize and hide away clutter so the bathroom is more functional day-to-day.
As bathroom fixtures age, so too does the risk of buildup for mould, mildew, scale, etc. Your renovation will provide a cleaner, healthier and more sanitary environment, with brand-new flooring, walls tubs, showers, toilets, etc. Having a bathroom vent will also help with air circulation and ventilation to keep moisture out of the space.
It’s All New
Gutting your old bathroom gives you a blank slate to start. You can design and make your new bathroom whatever you want, really. You can turn it into a beautiful luxury spa, or a more subdued modern look. It’s up to you!
When deciding to renovate your bathroom, be ready to put in the time and effort required. It won’t just take a couple of days and be over. Put thought into the design, what fixtures and tiles you like, and search around for deals. Work with a licensed general contractor to design and build the bathroom of your dreams. Set a budget and do your best to maintain it. Bathroom renovations can get complicated, but can really turn your dated space into an oasis you will enjoy spending your time in.
