We all know the kitchen is the heart of the home, but your bathrooms are one of the most frequently used rooms in the house that are often overlooked. When you think of remodeling your home, new kitchen cabinetry and appliances, redesigning your bedroom, or planning an entire new addition to the house are probably what comes to mind. But, do you know the last time your bathroom fixtures were updated?
Many homeowners can probably agree that the bathroom is the first room you walk into when you wake up in the morning and the last room you’re in before heading to bed each night. So why not make sure your bathroom is a space where you can pamper yourself and feel like you’re in an at-home spa? In this blog, we’ll be sharing reasons why you should consider remodeling your bathroom and some tips to help you through the process. Keep reading to find out!
Outdated Décor and Colors
When you walk into your bathroom, does it feel like a blast from the past? We’re talking a pink toilet, pink bathtub, or vibrant colors on the walls. Although these types of bathrooms might be nostalgic for some of us, the trends have definitely changed over the years, and neutral-colored bathrooms are much more up-to-date these days. Additionally, if you’re dealing with pastels and bright colors in your bathroom, it most likely means your fixtures haven’t been updated and you’ve been dealing with the same toilet, sink, and bathtub for over 15 years. At this point, they are most likely showing visible signs of damage, so an upgrade or two might be necessary.
Is your toilet wobbly when you sit on it? Does your faucet leak constantly? Not only can an unstable porcelain throne be very inconvenient, but a leaking faucet that isn’t taken care of can cause a serious increase in your water bill. Although your fixtures might be outdated in their color scheme, they definitely need to be replaced if there is physical damage to them.
It’s one thing if there is visible damage to your fixtures, but if there are cracks on your bathroom tiles, chips in the paint on the walls, or mold and mildew growth, it’s time for a serious bathroom remodel. You never want to walk into your bathroom and step onto broken or cracked tiles. What’s even worse is smelling mildew or seeing mold grow in your bathroom. Not only is this a health risk to your family, but your guests will not be very pleased when they need to use the bathroom in your house. While you might just need a fresh coat of paint and a deep cleaning, you also need to replace those broken tiles.
Let’s face it, you need good lighting in your bathroom. If the quality of your bathroom lighting is so low that you can barely see when you’re in there, it’s time for an upgrade. At Home Repair Service, we can install new lighting in your bathroom that will suit you and your family’s needs. If you want lighting where you can control the brightness, we recommend having a dimmer switch installed during your remodel.
Do you struggle with minimal storage space in your bathroom? If you find that you have nowhere to keep your bathroom accessories, such as your toothbrush, toothpaste, skincare, and other body products, and have to keep them scattered on your bathroom sink, adding some new storage space is definitely a good idea. Home Repair Service can help with adding shelves to your bathroom that can hold these products as well as installing a new bathroom sink with more storage space.
