When considering an upgrade for your home, your bathroom should be at the top of your list. Along with adding value to your home, remodeling your bathroom is a great way to remove unwanted mold and mildew, add storage, and increase its efficiency.
While remodeling your bathroom is a big investment, it’s one of the most important parts of your home and deserves an upgrade. If you live in Charleston, Logan, Beckley, and the surrounding areas, here are some reasons why you should consider remodeling your bathroom.
An old, outdated bathroom is never attractive. When searching for a home, homebuyers often look at the condition of the home’s bathrooms, particularly the aged look of the bathroom. An outdated bathroom is not only unattractive but is also much harder to clean and maintain. When guests visit your home, they tend to judge your cleanliness based on your kitchen and bathroom. A fresh, newly remodeled bathroom looks cleaner, nicer, and more modern. If you’re embarrassed to let guests use your bathroom or you’re having difficulty cleaning it, it may be time for an upgrade!
Over time, mold and mildew inevitably accumulate in your bathroom due to continual moisture and use. When your bathroom is older, it’s much more difficult to keep it clean, especially in hard-to-reach areas. Mold and mildew from moisture can seep into old molding, cabinets, floorboards, and other spaces. Remodeling is a great way to eliminate built-up mold and mildew. Remodeling contractors completely eliminate all mold and mildew in your bathroom before remodeling it with new walls, tile, floorboards, molding, and cabinets.
Mold and mildew buildup can cause serious health issues, including dizziness, severe headaches, chronic cough, and respiratory problems.
Older bathrooms contain outdated appliances and equipment which are much less efficient than newer ones and cost you more money on your water and electric bills. New technology and appliances are constantly emerging on the market and many of these newer appliances are eco-friendly and highly efficient. Some appliances have special water-saving features that save hundreds of gallons annually which means a lower water bill. Replacing old incandescent lightbulbs with LED lighting drastically cuts down on lighting and energy costs as LED lights are more energy-efficient and last longer. Depending on what appliances and equipment you choose for your new bathroom, you could save a lot of money on water, heating, and energy bills.
Much like when you remodel any other part of your home, renovating your bathroom increases your home’s value by a significant amount. Not only does a newly-remodeled bathroom provide greater satisfaction for yourself, but it also provides a healthy return on investment and increases your home’s appeal. If you’re considering putting your home up for sale on the market, then remodeling your bathroom is a great way to increase its value and sell it for a higher price. Homes with newer, nicely furnished bathrooms tend to sell quicker and for a higher price than homes with older bathrooms.
If your bathroom is running out of storage, remodeling it is a great way to add much-needed storage space. When house hunting, many potential buyers put storage at the top of their list of must-haves, particularly bathroom storage. With several hygiene products, linen, toilet paper, and other essentials, it’s important for a bathroom to have plenty of storage to neatly house all these items. Houses with less storage tend to remain on the market much longer than others. Inadequate storage is also aggravating when trying to keep your bathroom neat and tidy. When you run out of storage space, remodeling is a great opportunity to add more shelving, cabinets, and other storage.
