If you’re thinking about a bathroom remodel, consider the many benefits it will bring to your home. Consider the below items when remodeling your bathroom to maximize your time and money during the project.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Homeowners getting ready to sell their home, often consider remodeling their bathroom. Newly renovated bathrooms are attractive to prospective buyers. According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report, even minor bathroom renovations yield the biggest returns in terms of boosting your home’s resale value.
One of the most important reasons you should remodel your bathroom is to improve safety. Whether you have an elderly loved one, someone with disabilities, or young children, everyone in the home benefits from safer bathroom features. Consider adding a walk-in tub, walk-in shower, low-threshold showers, grab bars, hands-free faucets, slip-free surfaces, a wider doorway, or night light fixtures.
Replace Energy Efficient Appliances
High efficiency shower heads can significantly lower your water usage by up to 50 percent. High efficiency faucets aerate your water flow which also reduces water usage. Low-flow toilets that control low and high water volumes. LED light bulbs will save you money long term. Motion detector light switches that automatically turn off after a set amount of time will save money on your electric bill. When new drywall is installed, new insulation with higher thermal resistance is a smart option. If new drywall isn’t part of your remodel, insulating your pipes is an alternative. A lot of energy is used to heat your water, so insulating your pipes reduces the amount of heat that can escape through your pipes.
Optimize the Space and Functionality
When remodeling your bathroom, consider the different opportunities available to maximize your space including: replacing a tub with a walk-in shower; installing your sink in the corner and pairing with a floating vanity; adding built-in, ceiling-height storage shelves. Talk to your team of professionals about changing the layout of the bathroom so there’s a smooth flow throughout the room.
Fix existing problems
A bathroom remodel is a great time to repair existing problems. A complete plumbing replacement is often a good idea if your home is older. Replacing the pipes is also much easier than working around old ones because it allows for more customization and layout changes. Old pipes can become corroded, leaky, stained, flaky or discolored. Additionally, space under flooring, around windows and showers can have mold growth. During your bathroom remodel, check and remediate any mold and mildew below surfaces.
Update the outdated
Many things can make your house look old and outdated, such as a bathroom with carpet, old wallpaper, linoleum, outdated sink hardware, yellowing light fixtures, and stained tubs or showers. Remodeling your bathroom is a great way to give the space a face lift with modern hardware and appliances. A professional can help you choose the right flooring, tub, shower and other fixtures to maximize your space and make the most out of your bathroom remodel.
