Bathroom remodeling can be a serious investment, so many homeowners are reluctant to take it on. Here is a brief look at some of the benefits to remodeling your bathroom, which may make the whole process make more sense.
Sell Your Home More Easily
If you have researched remodeling a home, you’ve no doubt heard that bathrooms and kitchens sell houses. What that means is that when a potential homebuyer is looking at a house with the right number of bedrooms, in a neighborhood they like, it is most often the kitchen and bathrooms that are responsible for the final yea or nay.
On the other hand, a grungy bathroom will take a house off the “potentials” list in a heartbeat. Nobody wants to buy a nasty house, and broken fixtures or damage from leaks will have an exaggerated effect on how negatively buyers see your property. It’s surprising how critical people are about bathrooms for their potential home.
Create a Home Spa Experience
The bathroom just may be the most-used room in your home, so if you are staying in your house for a while, why not make it a pleasure to be in there. Older bathrooms are very utilitarian. Tub, toilet, sink, medicine cabinet—that’s about it. Today’s bathrooms are designed to be aesthetic as well as functional.
Bathing options range from simple shower stalls to steam showers with multiple shower heads, and from plain tubs to 2-person whirlpools with 18 adjustable heated-air jets. In between the extremes there are all kinds of options, and the materials used can have a huge impact on how the whole room is experienced.
It isn’t necessary to go all out and actually make the bathroom look like a spa if that is beyond your means. A basic remodeling effort can also create a functional and comfortable room that you will enjoy. It’s worth doing for the daily uplift you can get from it. After all, you can take a quick shower to get clean, but you can also take advantage of that private time in the water to unwind and relax. That doesn’t require much remodeling.
Shrink Your Environmental Impact
Whether you live in a Phoenix condo or a luxury home in Mesa, you can’t help but be aware of how important it is to reduce our environmental impact. Bathroom remodeling is one way you can greatly cut the energy and water that you use. You’ll also get the added benefit of saving money on your utility bills every single month.
