If you think about it, you spend a significant amount of time in the bathroom. It’s where you begin your day, it’s where you end your day, it’s where you prepare for an evening out, it’s where you relax and unwind. For these reasons and many more, it makes sense to have space that fits your tastes and offers all of the amenities that you need and want. Unless you recently built your house and had your bathroom designed to your exact specifications, there are probably some updates or upgrades you’d like to make. This is especially true if you’ve been in your home for several years. Advancements in technology, style, and architecture have revolutionized bathroom design. While opting to remodel your bathroom is a big decision, it’s essential to consider it as an investment, and here are four reasons why.
Updated and Upgraded Features and Style for Your Bathroom
Whether you are looking for more space, a modernized look, or newer, nicer amenities, you can achieve all of the above with a bathroom remodel. You can update a few components, or completely transform the space. The bottom line is that your bathroom should offer not only comfort but happiness with how it looks and operates.
Your Life Has Changed, Now So Does Your Bathroom
Has your family grown since you bought your home? Do you have guests more often now than you did a few years ago? Has your health recently changed? All of these are reasons to consider a bathroom remodel. Maybe your master bath needs an update to increase safety as you get older. Perhaps your guest bath is due for an upgrade. And if you have children or are expecting or planning to, it may be time to consider accounting for the extra activity. Adding space, updating fixtures, improving storage are all excellent renovations that will pay dividends in the future.
Improved Safety in Your Bathroom
Aging-in-place is becoming a popular option for older couples. Universal design and increased accessibility can make your home safer and more comfortable for you, and a prospective buyer should you ever decide to see your home. Curbless showers, walk-in tubs, lighting, sink fixtures, counter height, and are more are all considerations that are available to enhance the safety of your bathroom.
Increase Your Home’s Value with a Bathroom Remodel
Bathrooms are important for everyone. Along with the kitchen, bathrooms are a top priority for potential homebuyers. An updated and upgraded bathroom can be a great way to entice an offer. In fact, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry reported that a well-done bathroom remodel can recoup between 78% and 97% of its cost in the Baton Rouge area. So not only did you get to enjoy the updated comforts and your customized design, but you can also see a return on your investment. Another financial benefit of a bathroom remodel can be found by leveraging newer, more efficient technology to reduce wasted energy. Simple things like LED light fixtures, water-efficient toilets and showers, and more can equal substantial savings on your monthly energy bill as well.
