Apart from the kitchen, your bathroom is the most visited place in your home. However, most homeowners tend to overlook remodeling their bathrooms and view it as an extra expense. The good news is that renovating your bathroom does not have to be a major project. You can repaint, change the lighting, install new shower heads and faucets, or change the flooring.
Regardless of your budget, you can rejuvenate your bathroom space in no time and enjoy the space all over again. If you’re considering remodeling your bathroom, here are 5 benefits to motivate you.
Increasing the Value of Your Home
The bathroom and the kitchen are the two major selling points of any home. If your bathroom is poorly maintained, this can be a decrease your home’s value. Outdated fixtures and fittings such as chipped tiles, stained bathtubs, and ruined countertops can reduce your homes esthetic value as well as the prospective buyer’s outlook on the home.
A well-maintained and professionally upgraded bathroom with a modern look can give a potential buyer a positive feeling of your homes cleanliness in addition to increasing your homes value.
Remodeling Helps Create a Functional and Enjoyable Bathroom
Remodeling gives you the opportunity to redesign your bathroom so that fits your personality and your family needs. Whether it is the size, the lighting, storage space, cabinets or the design, now is the time to take advantage and make your small bathroom feel more spacious, functional, and enjoyable.
You can even create own customized spa setting in your home where you can relax while soaking yourself in the bathtub.
Enjoy a More Energy Efficient Home
Making updates that are environmentally friendly can help cut down your utility bills and reduce the impact on the environment. Most people assume that such upgrades aren’t luxurious, but that’s not the case.
In fact, most modern appliances such as shower heads, faucets, and energy-efficient LED lighting allow homeowners to save money on utility bills. For example, most traditional toilet flushing units use more than two gallons of water compared to the modern units that often use less than a gallon.
Bathrooms are prone to accidents, and one important aspect that should always be prioritized during remodeling is safety. A bathroom remodel provides you with the opportunity to fix safety features such as nonskid surfaces, shower benches, and handrails. If you have kids or elderly members of your family, you might want to consider a wider shower door.
Additionally, remodeling also gives you the chance to correct unsafe features that would cause serious accidents such as faulty electrical systems, soft spots or moldy walls. With countless modern styles now available for safety accessories, it is much better to address these needs during remodeling rather than retrofitting them later.
Improve Your Overall Health
Remodeling your bathroom can improve your overall health as well as your family’s general hygiene. Old fixtures, moldy walls, and stained bath tabs could harbor harmful microbes that can make you sick over time. A newly revamped bathroom will make you feel good and lift your spirits every moment you step into it.
