5 Best Reasons To Remodel Your Bathroom

One of the first renovations that homeowners consider when they're doing their remodels, is the bathroom. Heilman's Renovation has 5 good reasons to remodel the bathroom.

Bathroom Is In Need Of Repair, Upgrade Or Both

There are many issues that tell you it's time for a remodel of the bathroom. Medicine cabinets that are broken, loose tiles in the tub surround, leaking shower valves and more are all indications that it's time. Any of these run the risk of water and moisture absorbing into walls or the floor causing a lot of potential damage as well as mold. Minor repairs can soon add up to a monumental job. It may be time to upgrade when you see more than one of the above. Besides, you never did like that purple lavender toilet so why not update the bathroom now?

Increase Property Value

When you update your bathroom, you're increasing the value of your home. Bathroom remodels are one of the highest returns on investment for remodels. You can expect to recoup up to 72% of your investment should you decide to sell. Regardless of whether you're replacing everything, or simply doing a few minor changes to the fixtures and the pain, you're going to increase the property value.

Prepare your Home for Sale

Typically, a potential home buyer will check out the bathroom and the kitchen prior to purchase. These are the two rooms that they want to have as updated as possible. This makes the entire deal far more aesthetically appealing and very functional. If they find that these rooms require major repairs, new fixtures or even a remodel, they will likely focus on the next home on the list that may be more move in ready.

Additionally, we know that the bathroom brings the highest return on investment so if a potential buyer is interested, you know you're going to be able to recoup your cost.

Increase Home Efficiency

Per the US Environmental Protection Agency or EPA, if all households were to install water-efficient fixtures and appliances the entire country would save over 3 trillion gallons of water and over $18 billion dollars annually. Canada's population is smaller but this is a good number to review to calculate how much can be saved.

Replacing the fixtures with low flow faucets will not only conserve water, it will also save on the energy bill and it won't compromise the performance. When better fixtures are installed, when low flow dual flush toilets are installed, when ultra-low flow showers are used and high-efficiency faucets, it can greatly reduce the amount of water used and drastically cut the utility bill while helping the environment. The best part is that it won't reduce the water pressure and most people will barely notice.

Improve Personal Enjoyment

Perhaps you're simply tired of your old bathroom. Maybe it doesn't look like you want it to look. Perhaps you've outgrown it for your family size or lifestyle and you need a change. Perhaps you've envisioned a change but don't know how to go about it. Now you can make these changes a reality and have the bathroom of your dreams.
