5 Reasons to Renovate: The Bathroom.
Bathrooms are the most private rooms within a home, rooms where we go to look and feel our best. That is part of the reason why it deserves attention—the other part being that the amount of fixtures that go into it make it more susceptible to wear and tear. Renovating a bathroom is entirely up to whether or not it is performing at the level you want, but often people are unaware of the benefits that come with even a slight adjustment to its aesthetic or function. Let’s take a look at five reasons why your bathroom may be in need of a renovation.
1. There’s value in it
Whether you’re looking to stay in your current home for a little while or a long time, renovating your bathroom is a sure way to increase its value, and in doing so, boost your return on investment. Any prospective purchase would be a lot more profitable if one of the most important rooms in the house was modern, fully functioning and up to the standards set by the rest of the home.
2. Thoughts for sustainability
Modern technology means we have created fixtures that use a lot less energy that those that came out even a few years ago. To cut your energy bill and help leave a smaller carbon footprint, low-flow toilets and certain heating and cooling fixtures can save on both your energy bill and water consumption, creating a greener, leaner room.
3. Plumb on the money
Leaks and peels, mold and mildew, rust and rot all accumulate overtime. A remodel or entire renovation of your bathroom can attack plumbing issues at their source and replace outdate and worn plumbing fixtures with pipes and systems that work efficiently. Stopping the source internally automatically leads to a cleaner, safer exterior.
4. A sign of the times
Because the bathroom is so private, it’s easy to overlook it as it starts showing signs of an aesthetic lull or practical wear. Renovation is a great way to keep it looking contemporary with modern tiles and palettes, shiny new faucets and showerheads, or even new additions such as freestanding tubs and more shapely shower enclosures.
5. Space to move
Renovations, if done right, can expand even the most closed-off bathrooms, which goes beyond just a cosmetic facelift to actually make the experience easier and more convenient. You can lift the cabinets to head height and leave more space on the floor, or redesign the layout to make for a more economic use of fixtures.
