Things to consider for a bathroom remodel
You may be surprised to notice that your tastes have changed, but your bathroom hasn’t.
If you have a bathtub that’s no longer used, or a stained vinyl vanity top from days when the kids were young, it may be time to update those features. And, though that toilet has suited your family well for a long time, now that the kids are grown, it might be more practical to invest in a slightly taller model that’s more comfortable for adults.
One of the easiest signs that a remodel should be planned is that your current bathroom is deteriorating. There may be cracked tiles and sink basins, stains on the counter, or cracks in the cupboards. Not to mention, is your shower or toilet chugging more water than necessary? It’s time to look at water-saving appliances that will save you money in the future.
The wet environment of the bathroom can lead to many slips and falls. Update your bathroom to make it safer. If you are caring for young kids or the elderly, replace that slick floor with textured tile so that slips and falls are less likely. In addition, consider the benefits of curbless showers or walk-in tubs.
If you are preparing to sell your house, consider updating your bathroom before putting it on the market. Something as simple as a new coat of paint in popular colors can make your home more appealing. Adding standard features such as a quartz counter top or standard size toilet that are appealing to a wide variety of potential buyers can increase your home’s retail value.
