The Guaranteed Benefits of Remodeling Your Bathroom
Perhaps the only room in the home that sees more remodeling than the kitchen is the bathroom. Why is that? Well if you’re looking for good reasons to remodel your bathroom here are three perfectly good ones that you may not have thought about.
1) Increase The Value of Your Home
One of the biggest benefits of remodeling a bathroom is that it increases the value of your home. A bathroom that has old pipes and a stained bathtub torn out and replaced with a sleek, modern setup is going to be worth a great deal more. Whether it’s little changes like putting in a new sink or big changes like re-tiling an entire bathroom, there are all kinds of benefits to be reaped. Additionally the cost of upgrades and remodeling is often tax deductible, which can add further financial incentive to remodel at least one bathroom in the home.
2) Make It Safer
Bathrooms are pretty prone to accidents, but many of these problems can be fixed if you do a little bit of remodeling. Whether it’s putting in smoother tile that isn’t cracked and splintering, or making sure that old, gray drywall that might be developing mold gets dried out and removed, an upgraded bathroom tends to be a lot safer than the old version. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to install hand rails on the shower or put non-skid flooring outside the tub, but if you want to do that then those are both good options for making your bathroom a safer place to wash up.
Perhaps one of the best reasons to remodel your bathroom is to make it more efficient than it already is. This is both in terms of energy and water usage, but also in terms of how it’s arranged. For instance, installing a new, more water-efficient toilet is a great upgrade, but if that toilet is something you have to clamber over to get into the shower then maybe putting it in a different location would be a little bit more useful. The newer the bathroom is, often the more efficient it is.
