Top Reasons You Should Remodel Your Kitchen or Bathroom
Kitchen and bath remodeling jobs consistently rank as the two most valuable home projects you can undertake, certainly in terms of resale value, and also for the added value they bring to household members right now. While kitchen remodeling often involves replacement of countertops and cabinets, bathroom remodeling usually focuses on showers, baths, vanities, and sometimes possibly countertops and cabinets. Here are some of the main reasons why a bathroom remodel might be to your advantage.
Repair existing damage
Sometimes bathrooms sustain damage from water leaks, or from mold which has developed because of the constant presence of water. You may even have a cracked Cambria or Corian countertop which needs to be replaced, or some kind of damage to the cabinetry where bathroom utilities are stored. Whatever kind of damage you have in the bathroom, it's worth your while to do a remodel so that the damage doesn't become any worse.
Install safety features
Maybe you've never had a family member be involved with an accident in the bathroom, but that doesn't mean it will never happen. Bathroom accidents in general are very common, but most of them can be avoided if you install handrails, non-slip tiles, and possibly even a shower seat for the senior citizen of your household.
Chances are, if you live in an older home, your bathroom was designed long ago, and is no longer in keeping with the times. You may be wasting a great deal of water, your bathroom lighting may be inefficient, and you may not be making best use of available space. Energy-efficient showers and toilets can save on your utility bills, and a better design will help you to maximize space usage.
It happens fairly often that older bathrooms can become dull and dreary, simply because they were designed long ago, when bathrooms were not intended to be as attractive as they now are. You may want to undertake a bathroom remodeling project simply to improve the overall appearance of your bathroom, and to update it so that it has a more contemporary look.
Family dynamics are different
It could be that when you first moved into your home, there was just you and your spouse - but now there are several children in the household, and they all spend time in the bathroom too. You may need to do a remodel just to expand the bathroom, and provide more space for those extra users, as well as the increased storage needs. Your kids will love the larger room, and you will too.
