If you are not happy with your current bathroom, it may be time for a remodel. Lucky for you, there are many different types of updates that you can make to your bathroom. From installing new tiles around the bathtub to installing a new sink, there are so many different things that you can do that will not only transform your bathroom into something beautiful but will also increase the value of your home.
Let’s look at some of the reasons why you might need bathroom remodeling.
Older bathrooms are small
Before the 1990s, bathrooms were meant strictly for doing your business and getting out. Now they’ve become a type of sanctuary or place to escape requiring more room and incorporating the latest technology, like heaters, video monitors, and touch-activated fixtures. Many people are replacing the integrated bathtub-shower with walk-in showers only. This change makes the bathroom feel more spacious and it’s more practical since more people these days are using the shower more often than the bathtub.
A newly remodeled bathroom will be a haven for relaxation
A newly remodeled bathroom may include an integrated steam room or sauna. Since some of the older bathrooms have both a shower and bath area, eliminating needing to dedicate space to a bathtub opens up the possibility of installing a sauna or steam room.
Some bathrooms are unsafe
If you’ve ever slipped in the bathtub or on the wet shower floor, you know how dangerous it can be to have unsafe footing surfaces. In older bathrooms, builders would tile everything and leave the bathtub finish slippery, making a rubber bathtub mat a necessity. Rarely would you find an older bathtub built for someone with disabilities.
When you redo your bathroom, make sure to use no-slip materials—like stone, tile, or even composite wood, which can resist moisture—on flooring and shower areas. If an older adult or someone with a physical disability is going to use the bathroom, be sure to include grab bars, extra lighting, and wider shower doorways to avoid accidents.
Everything is breaking
Given enough time, everything breaks down. From toilets to leaky faucets and cracked tiles, it’s not just ugly, it’s annoying. The beauty of a remodeled bathroom is that everything is new and you don’t have to worry about waking up in the morning with water leaking on your floor, the toilet running constantly, or the faucet having dripped all night.
