Why Your Bathroom Needs a Remodel
July 26, 2019
According to a study conducted by Houzz, two-thirds of Americans spend, on average, 30 to 60 minutes each day in the bathroom (and even more in some cases). Extrapolated over the course of your homeownership – that is a significant amount of time.
At Elegant Kitchen & Bath, we believe that the most utilized and most important rooms in your house should meet the quality and standards that you not only want but that you and your family deserve.
Whether your bathroom is lacking in space, is outdated, or is in serious need of a makeover, we’ve got your baths… sorry, backs.
Here, we’ll provide 5 reasons why you should consider remodeling your bathroom and what that could mean for your home and your happiness.
Any real estate agent will be quick to tell you that the bathroom is a major selling point for potential buyers. Whether you’re in your forever home or not – a bathroom remodel provides a sizeable increase on the resale value of your home.
If your bathroom is covered in wallpaper from the 80’s, has a leaky faucet, or a grimy, off-white bathtub, you can be sure to see prospective investors walk out the door.
Remodeling your bathroom before selling is a sure-fire way to attract more offers, sell your home quicker, and for more money. And if you are in your forever home, you’ll at least get to enjoy the luxurious new facilities.
If you’ve purchased a pre-owned home or have lived in yours for years without a remodel, you’ll notice that the bathroom is one of the quickest deteriorating rooms in the house. Primarily caused by the moisture from the toilet, sink, and bath/shower, as well as the overall usage, the bathroom is one of the first and most frequent rooms in the house in need of renovation.
Bathrooms are also very traditional and cookie-cutter; a bathtub/shower setup, a sink, mirror, and cabinets. There’s not a lot of variety or room for personalization – but there could be. You don’t have to follow the standard bathroom setup.
Consider adding an accent wall, a freestanding tub, or additional shelving to make the bathroom more comfortable and personalized.
One problem that we frequently run into is that most pre-built bathrooms have a severely limited amount of storage space. Cluttered countertops, overflowing clothes hampers, and storing extra towels and toiletries in another room are all signs that you need to increase the storage space in your bathroom.
Whether you’re sharing a bathroom with a spouse or have growing children – adding additional shelving units and cabinets in your bathroom can help reduce the clutter and will provide a much more spacious area.
The team at Elegant Kitchen & Bath are experts in maximizing every inch of the pre-existing space in your bathroom to allow additional storage.
Time for Change
You may be planning on starting or adding to your family or the current bathroom setup might not fit your lifestyle anymore. Embrace the change and consider a bathroom remodel.
Increasing the size of the room or simply taking steps to enhance the spaciousness may be one option. Redecorating or replacing outdated utilities could be another.
Tastes, preferences, and styles are perpetually changing so if you have kept your bathroom the same for years – it’s probably time to renovate for the sake of your happiness.
If a bathroom remodel is in your near future, consider switching to energy-efficient appliances. From showerheads to lighting, appliance companies have created modern technologies that fulfill your needs while conserving energy at the same time.
Energy-efficient products can also save you money on your monthly bill. We all love savings, right? You could take that money you saved to go to a spa, but you’ll probably want to stay home and unwind in your new, state-of-the-art bathroom.
Also, you’ll help the environment by doing the household activities you partake in daily. Utilize energy-efficient appliances to make an impact outside of the walls that reinforce your home.
There are many reasons why homeowners should renovate their bathroom. We know you deserve a home with a custom bathroom to suit your needs.
