5 Signs It’s Time for a Bathroom Remodel
A bathroom is a place in our home where we go to relax, clean off the dust of the day, and renew ourselves before we go out into the world. Giving up some of that space for any amount of time, even to make it better, can feel extremely daunting. But people frequently overestimate what they’ll lose and underestimate what they might gain by spending just a little time fixing the place up and considering a bathroom remodel.
Here are a few common signs that it might be time to stop procrastinating on that bathroom remodel you’ve been thinking about.
Chipped and Stained Tile or Grout
The lifetime of your tiles isn’t infinite, and when you start to see the cracks or coloration in them, that’s a sign that they need a little care to get back to that brightness so that they can fully defend your surfaces from moisture the way that they’re intended to.
Leaks and High Water Bills
Little leaks may not seem like a big deal at first, but over time they can add up and really increase those water bills. Not only that but when water runs through your pipes all the time (even a little bit), it cools them down, which can create condensation inside your walls and cause long-term damage to your house.
Mold or Humidity
Whether inside the walls or outside the walls, the humidity will slowly wake up any fungal spores in the area which can cause significant damage to the wood of your house. You may start noticing discoloration in nearby wood or drywall, mold on surfaces, or other damage, all of which will need to be redone to keep your house in good long-term shape.
Faded or Colored Glass
When not cared for properly, old glass can fade or color over time and becomes less of a joy to look at. No amount of scrubbing is going to recover your glass to the way it was before completely. Old, frosted glass won’t have the same crisp feel as the new stuff, and your clear glass’s slight green tint can become ugly over time. Switching out to new cast or low iron glass can really reinvigorate your spaces immensely.
It Doesn’t Fit You Anymore
Do you need a handheld shower head for that new dog or kid that joined the family? Are you less mobile than you used to be? Did the kids go off to college, and now you can set things up how you really want them? Whatever the cause, our spaces should change and shift with the way that we use them, so if you find new needs in your life, don’t be afraid to change your space to suit them.
