Five Signs That It’s Time to Remodel Your BathroomCapitol Design Build
The bathroom should feel like an oasis, a place where you can start your day off right or retreat to after a long, hectic work week. If your bathroom makes you feel stressed and aggravated rather than relaxed and rejuvenated, it’s time to make a change! Here are five signs that a bathroom remodel should be your next home improvement project.
No matter what new things life brings your way, the bathroom must adapt to your needs. Did a new partner or spouse just move in? If the bathroom must now accommodate two people, you might want to install a double vanity or second showerhead. Perhaps you just had your first child. You’ll need a bathtub in the guestroom-turned-nursery to bathe your little one. Maybe you’re looking to age in place. A roll-in shower or walk-in tub, grab bars, and other accessibility features are a must.
Whether you’re dealing with leaks, clogs, or inefficient fixtures, issues with the plumbing could be just the excuse you need to renovate the bathroom. Upgrading to sleek, functional fixtures—such as low-flow toilets, rainfall showerheads, and modern faucets—helps you conserve water while being pampered with the latest features.
Is the bathroom counter always covered with stuff? Are you forced to store bathroom items in other rooms? These problems indicate a lack of adequate storage. Depending on the size and layout of your bathroom, solving your storage woes could prove a unique challenge. However, with a creative designer by your side, anything is possible. Think linen closets, corner shelves, built-in niches, over-the-toilet storage, modern medicine cabinets, and more.
Bathrooms in older homes tend to include lighting as an afterthought. In a room where seeing what you’re doing is of the utmost importance, lighting should be the centerpiece of the design! Your bathroom renovation can incorporate thoughtful lighting, from dual sconces that flank the mirror to upward-aiming vanity lights to dimmable cove lighting. The ability to customize the light level—whether you’re shaving, putting on makeup, or enjoying a relaxing bubble bath—will forever change your opinion of the bathroom.
Perhaps you fell in love with your home for other reasons, but if the bathroom failed to impress from day one, you might finally be at your wit’s end. On the other hand, maybe you have lived in your home long enough that it has simply gone out of style. In either case, you’ll love making your bathroom a reflection of your personal taste.
