3 Great Reasons to Remodel Your Bathroom

A home’s bathroom gets multiple visits every day. But if you’re like most homeowners, you don’t pay much attention to your bathroom’s surroundings. Instead of taking this busy space for granted, consider making some changes that address the true functionality and aesthetic issues that, let’s face it, you’ve been putting off for way too long. If you’re in need of some motivation, here are three great reasons to remodel your bathroom.

Increase your home’s value. Did you know that bathroom remodels have one of the highest returns on investment in comparison to all other remodeling projects? According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report 2018, bathroom remodels boost your home’s resale value by a substantial amount. For example, making simple cosmetic changes to your bathroom increases your home’s value by $1.71 for every $1 you spend. These cosmetic changes include things like painting, refinishing cabinets, and upgrading the fixtures and hardware. Because outdated bathrooms tend to sway prospective buyers from purchasing a home, any bathroom remodeling you do will help increase your home’s appeal. If you aren’t currently looking to move, you can enjoy your remodeled bathroom now, and then reap the benefits of your investment later, should you ever want to sell your home.

Rework your space. More often than not, bathrooms are the smallest rooms in the house, especially if you live in an older home. Needing more space is another great reason to remodel your bathroom. Many homeowners choose bathroom remodels that include structural changes, such as taking down walls or redoing the room’s layout. These changes, coupled with countertops with double sinks or freestanding bathtubs, can also help you take advantage of every inch of space available. If your bathroom is cramped due to lack of storage options, consider having customized shelving or cabinetry made to fit your specific space. Having customized storage options installed can sometimes eliminate the need to remove walls in order to increase your bathroom’s functionality.

Repair and prevent damage. Everything in your bathroom, including the walls, tiles, fixtures, and cabinetry, is exposed to warm, damp conditions on a regular basis. With such frequent and consistent exposure to moisture and humidity, even the most upscale bathrooms can succumb to damage caused by mold and mildew. If you have a leaky sink or shower, structural damage caused by water is an even bigger concern. Over time, sneaky water leaks mean damage repair will be necessary. While this may mean a great deal of demolition is required, this is a perfect reason to remodel your bathroom. This type of in-depth repair work can help you save thousands of dollars in wasted water costs annually, as well as help you and your family reduce exposure to potentially harmful mildew and mold spores.
