Remodeling bathrooms and creating master bedroom suites are two of Clark Construction's most popular remodeling projects. Remodelled bathrooms add value, comfort, safety, and style to any home. Here are the top six reasons to consider a bathroom remodel for your home.
1. It will increase your home's value.
Anecdotally, real estate agents report that a bathroom remodel has the highest return of all major remodeling projects, and that the size and adequacy of the bathrooms is often a major consideration in home purchasing decisions.
Because a prospective buyer is often turned off by outdated or undersized bathrooms, homes with updated bathrooms tend to sell more quickly.
So enjoy your remodeled bathrooms now, and reap the benefits of your investment later when you are ready to sell your home.
2. The bathroom is too small - space is poorly utilized.
What was sufficient when your home was originally built, or when you bought it may not mesh with your current lifestyle. Master bedroom suites, with large bathrooms and good sized walk-in closets are becoming a "must-have" for area homes. It brings the house up to date, and makes the home more appealing to potential buyers down the road.
A bathroom remodeler can show you how to expand the bathroom, maybe by bumping out the walls and grabbing space from an adjoining closet, room, or hallway, or how the space can work better for you by reconfiguring the layout in the space you have.
Getting ready in the morning won’t be so stressful when you aren’t constantly bumping into your spouse or trying to share a small sink when both of you need to brush your teeth. Additional space can be good for a marriage and a happier family.
3. It’s outdated and overdue for refreshing.
You may have a "builder' s special bathroom - or dated bathroom that doesn’t appeal to you. Styles in fixtures and fads in decorating colors change over time.
Whether you dislike the color scheme of your bathroom or just want a change, a bathroom renovation can provide the fresh appearance you want.
To keep your bath timeless, go neutral, and bring in splashes of color with towels and other accessories that can be changed periodically.
A new bathroom can make your entire home feel newer and updated. It improves the look and feel of everything around it, especially when it’s a master bath.
4. The bathroom needs repair.
All bathrooms show signs of damage, wear and tear, and aging of materials and fixtures over time. Is your shower leaking into the room below? The need to make repairs is often the impetus for a complete bathroom overhaul.
Watch out though - If you’ve avoided inviting friends and family over because of your embarrassing bathroom, you may find your social calendar getting much busier after your project is finished. You’ll find any reason you can to entertain and show off your new bathroom!
5. It needs to be safer.
Thousands of accidents and injuries happen in bathrooms every year.
Whether you are thinking of your children, yourself, your parents, or your future needs, a safety upgrade often is the inspiration for a bathroom upgrade.
A wider doorway, barrier free showers, anti-scald thermostatic shower valves, attractive grab bars, and GFI outlets can improve your bathroom safety.
Advances in bath engineering and materials have made safety products the highest growing market in bath renovations.
No longer does a safe bath need to look institutional. Safety is attractive these days!
6. It can be more efficient.
So many advances have been made to increase the energy efficiency of household systems. In the bathroom, low-flow showers and faucets and dual-flush toilets have become popular because the water and energy savings deliver a great return on your investment.
When you consider that more than half the water used in your home is from your bathroom, it makes sense to look here for savings!
