The bathroom in your home should be designed to offer comfort, helping you enjoy a long relaxing soak after a busy day at work. Do you walk into your bathroom and enjoy the beautiful design and décor of the room? Or, does the bathroom make you cringe because it is old and outdated? If you don’t like the appearance of your bathroom, then right now might be the perfect time to create the sanctuary that you desire.
You will spend time every day in the bathroom, so it is important that you like the room. Whether you are buying a home that needs to be updated or you are looking for ways to improve your current home, you should consider the benefits of a bathroom remodel.
Here are four reasons why it might be time to update your bathroom:
1. Old Flooring
One of the worst trends was when carpet was used in the bathrooms. If you live in a home that has carpet in the bathroom, then it is time for an upgrade. Even if you only change the flooring, it can make a big difference to improve the appearance of the room and make it more comfortable. Plus, many homeowners find that it is easier to keep the bathroom clean and fresh with a hard floor instead of carpet.
2. Water Damage or Leaking Pipes
Look around the bathroom and see if you can identify any signs of water damage. In some situations, old pipes could start leaking and cause brown water stains on the walls, baseboards, or floors. Check the ceiling to see if you can identify any mold growing in the corners above the shower. Bathrooms without good ventilation can be a space that is prone to mold growth. If you see any signs of mold or water damage, then you need to fix the root problem and update the aesthetics of the bathroom at the same time.
3. Lighting Problems
Are you always squinting when you look in the mirror because you don’t have the right light to easily put on makeup in the morning? Poor lighting can make the bathroom feel dark and unwelcoming. It’s a problem if you can’t clearly see yourself in the mirror! Switch out the light fixtures and choose new energy efficient bulbs to create soft, cozy light that you will enjoy.
4. Poor Layout
Are you always looking for more storage space in your bathroom? Or maybe it is hard to open the door when someone is standing at the sink. These inconveniences can often be remedied with a bathroom remodel. Consider the placement of the cupboards and the design of the room. A few small adjustments can go a long way to making the room more accessible and comfortable.
