Three Worthy Reasons To Remodel Your Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most important features of any home.

Here are some of the compelling reasons why you should do a bathroom makeover:

Boosts the value of your home

A survey among bathroom installers in the UK reveals that remodeling a bathroom (including installation and furniture) starts at around £3200.  While this can be expensive at the onset, the long-term benefit outweighs your initial cash outlay.  This is because remodeling a bathroom will definitely add value to your entire home.  This is especially true if you intend to sell your home in the future.  Let’s face it, potential homebuyers are easily impressed with a handsome looking toilet and bath.  A nice home with a beautiful bathroom sells much faster in the market. Even if you are not keen on selling your home in the near future, the perks alone of using a new one is an idea that appeals to any member of the household.

Presents opportunity to add safety features

Sometimes, remodeling isn’t only for aesthetic purposes.  There are times when you have to remodel because you want your family to be safe while in the bath.  Household members who are prone to slips and accidents include very young children and the elderly.  Remodeling is the best time to incorporate safety features or to repair fixtures to avoid further injury.  Broken floor tiles, leaking pipes, or broken cabinet hinges – these are the common flaws that need immediate attention.  Accidents aren’t the only ones you are avoiding if you remodel.  You will also arrest the spread of bacteria or fungi when you have fixed a leaking pipe.  Molds and mildew can trigger allergy, skin rashes, and for some, asthma.

Maximizes efficiency

You might think that remodeling a bathroom will be too costly especially if you have a limited budget.  It is better to spend now on repairs and remodeling as there are savings you get out of it.  For instance, there are now new toilet models that use less water to carry out its function.  Some new models use about 55% less water so imagine the savings you get from having to pay lower utility bills.

A beautiful yet safe and efficient bathroom is a boon to every household.  Make sure to make these a priority when remodeling your own.
