5 Reasons for a Simple Bathroom Remodel

Simple Bathroom RemodelThere are many ways to increase the value of your home, but a simple bathroom remodel can prove to be one of the most sure-fire ways to get the most return on your investment.  Studies have suggested that a simple bathroom remodel in a strong housing market can give you more than a 100% return on the initial investment.  Not only will you benefit in the long term with resale, but remodeling your bathroom will give you the luxury of enjoying a new, clean look.

Here are some reasons why a simple bathroom remodel is essential to your home

1) Maintenance – Keeping up on the maintenance for your home is essential.  Plumbing connections and electrical systems age with time and it is important to upgrade these systems to keep your house in good working order.  

2) Necessity – We have come across countless homes where systems are broken, drains are clogged, faucets do not work anymore, paint is peeling off the walls, and plumbing is leaking into rooms below.  Sometimes necessity calls and a bathroom renovation is a must.  

3) Facelift – Common issues many homeowners face when considering bathroom remodeling are cracked tiles, unlevel floors, mold and mildew, poor ventilation, and leaky fixtures to name a few.  A simple bathroom remodel can take care of all of these issues and give you that warm feel in your bathroom.  

4) Eco-Friendly – A simple bathroom remodel can save you money and help save the environment.  Today’s high-efficiency toilets only use 1.6 gallons per flush compared to older models which used 5 or 7 gallons per flush.  Saving water helps the environment and keeps money in your wallet by lowering your water bills.  This is just one example along with high-efficiency shower heads, faucets, and drains.

5) Satisfaction – How many times do you walk into one of the most used rooms in your house and not feel good about its look?  Now imagine walking into your bathroom after completing a remodel and saying to yourself “I love my bathroom.”  We all know that if you feel good, other aspects of your life will fall into place.
