People are staying in their homes longer these days. The average homeowner will live in their current home for nearly 15 years. That’s a long time to look at the same chipped tile or have to jiggle the handle on the toilet. Because homeowners are staying in their homes longer than before many are finding that a bathroom renovation is a good idea. And not just because of broken fixtures but for many reason. Here are the top five reasons to remodel your bathroom.
1. Your Bathroom Looks Extremely Dated?
Does your bathroom have gaudy tile? Unsightly wallpaper? Rusty fixtures and cracked countertops? If so, it may be time for a remodel. Bathroom renovations can be expensive, so many homeowners put them off for a long time. However, if your bathroom doesn’t match the rest of your home because it’s very dated or has a lot of wear & tear, now is the time to make a change – and invest in a renovation.
2. Your Bathroom Doesn’t Meet Your Family’s Needs
If you have two kids, for example, and they are constantly fighting over using the sink in the bathroom, it may be time to remove it and install a double sink vanity. Or, maybe you have an older relative living with you, and you need to install a zero-entry shower or bathtub and grab bars to make sure that they can use the space safely. If your bathroom doesn’t meet your family’s needs for whatever reason, it’s time to upgrade!
3. You Want Better Efficiency For Your Bathroom
Modern low-flow sinks, toilets, showers, and tubs can all make your bathroom much more energy-efficient. You can even replace your water heater with one or more tankless water heater units for maximum energy savings if your budget allows for it. Over time, the power and water savings of a modern, updated bathroom can help you recover a lot of your investment!
4. You’re Low On Storage Space
Sick of toothpaste tubes, mouthwash, cosmetics, and other items crowding your sink? Don’t have enough cabinet space or shelf space to store everything that you and your family need to use in the bathroom? It may be time for a renovation! You can get a new vanity, install shelving, replace your medicine cabinet with a larger model, and even build recessed shelving in your bathroom to ensure you have all the space you need.
5. You Want Something New (And To Increase The Value Of Your Home!)
What’s the final reason to remodel your bathroom? It’s simple – you just want something new! A bathroom that’s updated, modern, comfortable and gorgeous. Not only will your bathroom be a pleasure to use, but you’ll improve the value of your home, too. The average bathroom renovation costs about $20,000 – and you can expect to add about 67.2% of this to your home’s value! Blue Skies is here to help, call us and get your project started right away.
