The decision to remodel your bathroom is one that deserves careful consideration. A remodelling project of any size requires a financial investment and can often mean temporary inconveniences while your new bathroom is under construction. Still, there are many benefits to bathroom remodelling that can make the costs well worth it in the long-term.
Here are six reasons to remodel your bathroom that you may or may not have considered:
1 - Home Value - Improvements in the bathroom are an excellent way to boost the value of your home. Estimates about how much of a return on your investment you'll receive from a remodelling vary, but most real estate experts state that a home's value immediately increases somewhere from $.50 to $.75 for every dollar spent on remodelling.
2 - Convenience - If your bathroom-remodelling project adds more space to the room or includes a redesign of the floor plan that enhances the amount of space available, you'll reap the rewards in terms of convenience. Benefits of remodelling are being able to navigate the room more easily when your spouse is also in the bathroom and having the ability to get ready more quickly in the morning or before a special event.
3 - Hygiene - Over time, the surfaces of your tub, sink, toilet and shower can become a breeding ground for mould and mildew. When it becomes difficult to remove these microbes through ordinary cleaning, remodelling can make your bathroom more sanitary and attractive.
4 - Safety - Leaky fixtures, loose tiles and worn surfaces on the floors of tubs and showers can all be hazards in the bathroom. A remodelling project can eliminate risks and decrease the likelihood of accidents and injuries.
5 - Style - Just as fashion trends change from season to season, styles of bathroom fixtures, flooring and wall coverings evolve over time. Replacing out-dated items with newer ones can make your bathroom look more stylish and feel brand new.
6 - Environmental Concerns - The designs of bathroom fixtures have become greener in recent years and now conserve more water to be friendlier to the planet. Not only can a bathroom remodel shrink the size of your eco footprint, but it can also help you save money on the cost of your monthly water bills.
