Remodeling your bathroom can be one of the very best ways of adding value to your home in the event that you should sell in the future, but it can also bring fresh life and usefulness to the single most used room in your home right now. Your bathroom remodel can be your own little sanctuary at the end of a work day, and the coziness and comfort it offers can make your guests and visitors feel more at home. Of all the reasons that homeowners undertake bathroom remodels, these five reasons are at the top of the list.
Increase the value of your home
The number one reason for remodeling your home's bathroom is to increase the overall value of your home. While you may not recoup your entire investment during an eventual resale, you will certainly add significant dollar value to your home by upgrading and making it more appealing to new buyers. It is a known fact that bathrooms are one of the rooms assigned most importance by people looking to purchase a new home.
Add more space or storage
When a family grows, it's very common to require more storage room in the bathroom for towels and linens, and just to accommodate greater usage. This kind of remodel generally involves more of a redesign and rebuild than some other remodeling projects, and it's even possible that you might want to add a completely new second bathroom to relieve traffic on the first one.
Update the bathroom
Even if your bathroom doesn't really require any upgrades or changes to accommodate real needs, you might want to change it just because you've been in the house a long time, and you'd like your bathroom to have a new and different look. There's a lot to be said for simply adding fresh color or new counter tops and cabinets. Sometimes even a simple change like a new coat of paint can add fresh life to your bathroom, and make it look completely new.
Create a relaxing sanctuary
When you get to the point in your life where you feel it's time to pamper yourself a little bit for all the hard work you do, one of the things that can be the most satisfying and relaxing, is to spend some 'me' time in the bathroom or shower, with a customized tub or a brand-new shower with pulsating jets that can soothe tired muscles, and rejuvenate your spirit.
Fix existing problems, prevent future issues
Many bathroom remodel projects are initiated as a way of addressing existing problems. Since the bathroom does get such heavy usage, it's only natural that some problems will develop over a period of time. Some of these potential problems can include plumbing issues, shower or tub fixture problems, broken tiles, water leaks around the faucets or shower, and even the development of mold or mildew, with resulting damage.
