While the idea of a bathroom renovation project can be overwhelming, it can prove to be extremely beneficial in the long run. Renovating a bathroom can take time, money, and patience, but in the end, you will add value to your property and increase the overall quality and energy of your home. Do you need to know if it’s time to renovate your bathroom? Royal Flush Plumbing has highlighted some signs for homeowners to look out for:
Out-dated Plumbing and Leaks
The condition of your plumbing is most vital when it comes to the function of your bathroom. A plumbing issue can result in major damage to your home, including flooding and clogged pipes. If you notice the tiles are cracking, faucets are leaking, and the ceiling is crumbling from moisture, these are all signs that your bathroom needs a remodelling from the experts at Royal Flush Plumbing.
Your Planning on Selling Your Home Soon
Renovating your bathroom will increase the value of your home and help you sell it faster and for more money. If your bathroom is outdated, it can scare away potential buyers or leave more room for them to negotiate down the price. Often times, all it takes is a few simple renovations to make your bathroom attractive to potential buyers.
Increase Your Energy Efficiency
If you live in an older home, it’s likely your bathroom was not built with energy efficiency in mind. The fact is, the average person uses 329 litres of water per day and that 65% of that water is used in the bathroom. So, if you’re planning to renovate, it’s best to consider including energy efficient upgrades. Everything from your toilet to your shower has energy efficient options these days that can help you save money.
Lack of Space and Storage
If your bathroom seems tight and you’re getting creative to store your belongings, it probably time to open the area up and remodel to fit your storage needs. Adding more cabinets, bins, or a shelving system can help give you more storage. If that is not enough, a new layout or an expansion might do the trick.
Poor lighting in your bathroom can lead to various issues, such as over applying makeup. Updating the lighting will not only make your bathroom function better, but it will also help make it look better too. If your bathroom is especially old, it’s a good idea to have the electrical work looked at as well.
Renovating your bathroom might seem costly and timely, but it will make your home more valuable and enhance your daily morning experience.
