Bathroom remodels can increase the value of your home, but they can be a pricey investment. The bathroom is one of the most used rooms of the house, and an updated bath can contribute to positive returns when selling your home. According to Angie’s List, a bathroom remodel can yield around an 80 percent return on investment. How do you know when it a bathroom remodel is needed? Here are 5 signs that it’s time to remodel your bathroom:
1.) Mold & Mildew:
- These issues could indicate a bigger problem in your bathroom like poor ventilation or even leaking and cracked plumbing. Mold is not only unsightly but it is also a potential health hazard to you and your family.
2.) Visible Damage
- Broken or cracked tiles, damaged fixtures, peeling paint, watermarks, rust, leaks and more are not only eyesores but they can lead to further damage to your home if not fixed.
- If your bathroom is outdated, it may scare away buyers if you decide to sell your home and can be an embarrassment when you entertain guests. Fixing that funky 1970’s wallpaper or replacing an old tub can do great things for your home value.
4.) Disabilities & Mobility Issues
If you are disabled or need assistance getting around, remodeling your bath should be a top priority if you plan to stay in your home. Bathrooms can be one of the most dangerous rooms in the house in terms of slips and falls. Prevent potential injuries by modifying your bathroom with safety aids such as grab bars, shower seats, raised toilet seats, a barrier free roll-in shower or a walk-in tub.
5.) Need More Space
- If you have outgrown your current bathroom or are in a wheelchair and need more room to maneuver, consider a remodel. Without expanding the room you can easily free up space by replacing a bulky tub with a compact walk-in shower.
