When it comes to bathroom design, most people would probably agree that functionality is every bit as important as aesthetics. Since many of us don’t like to spend more time in the bathroom than we have to, bathroom remodeling is sometimes overlooked in the greater scope of interior design and home improvement. The bathroom, however, encompasses a very intimate and personal space in our homes so it is important that it be a place that is both comfortable and clean for us to do whatever we need to do in it. Whether you just moved into a new home or are looking to upgrade your current one, a bathroom remodel can allow you to personalize your bathroom, improve its functionality, and increase your home’s value.
Here are 5 reasons why a bathroom remodel might just be the upgrade your home needs:
Cleanliness is Key
Nobody wants to feel dirty when using the bathroom. Porous surfaces and carpets around your bathroom can be a magnet for mold, mildew, and other residue. By remodeling your bathroom, you can choose to replace moldy and hard-to clean surfaces with newer ones to make your bathroom a more sanitary place.
You Want Your Bathroom To Be Your Bathroom
Whether you prefer the charms of classic European design or the simple elegance of contemporary style, remodeling your bathroom can be the perfect opportunity to personalize your bathroom with features like fixtures, tiling, and color themes that reflect who you are. You can take bathroom personalization a step further by designing it around your needs and preferences.
You Need More Space
Our needs tend to change as we go through life, and so do our space requirements. Perhaps you recently got married, had a kid, or had a relative move in with you. Whatever the reason, sometimes that tiny bathroom just doesn’t cut it any more and you need more space. Changing the size or layout of your bathroom’s floor plan can increase the amount of usable space in your bathroom or give you the extra storage room needed to fit everyone’s toiletries and appliances.
Your Bathroom Needs Fixin’
From leaking shower valves to crumbling, water leaks and poor ventilation can cause a variety of problems including mold, mildew, and water damage. If your bathroom is in need of repair, a bathroom remodel might be a good idea to not only fix what is broken, but to make your bathroom even better than it was before.
Improve Efficiency and Increase Functionality
Does it sound like the entire ocean is draining through through your toilet everytime you flush it? If so, your toilet is probably using up a lot more water than it needs to. Replacing wasteful toilets and other fixtures in your bathroom with more efficient ones can help you save water, energy, and money on your utility bills in addition.
Increase your Home’s Resale Value
In addition to making for a more enjoyable and comfortable bathroom experience for you, remodeling your bathroom or bathrooms is an upgrade that can seriously increase the worth of your home if you ever decide to put it up for sale.
