When To Prioritize A Bathroom Renovation

When it’s time for a facelift in any room of your home, it’s pretty obvious. Maybe the overall color palette styles have changed, or new fabrics and flooring are all the rage, with examples being shown off on social media and in magazines or on television. Most home interior changes can be done fairly easily and relatively inexpensively, but the bathroom can be a different matter entirely. 

There are a few reasons you might need to prioritize your bathroom renovation, and we would like to share a few with you today:

LEAKS, ETC. Of course, this first reason is definitely a no-brainer. When you have leaks and malfunctions, they create all sorts of inconveniences for you and your family, so you will know immediately that it is probably time to renovate. Old pipes, an older toilet, disintegrating seals and fittings—all of these situations will require you to replace tubs, toilets, and sinks, along with all their accompanying plumbing. 

NEW BATHROOM FIXTURE STYLES. Bathroom fixture styles don’t change as often as the paint shades for the year, but when new models do come on the market, they are generally really exciting. Upgraded features that add comfort and efficiency are often part of a newer offering, and many times they are more energy efficient, too. Tubs these days stand alone, away from the walls, which are much easier to keep tidy. They also lower the probability of water damage and wear to those walls. Natural lighting has been proven to be much healthier for all of us, so why not include the skylight trend in your bathroom renovation? When a renovation to your bathroom will improve your quality of life and lower your energy costs, it’s definitely time to put that renovation at the top of your to-do list. 

CHANGE IN FAMILY SIZE. If you are expecting to start a family, or if you are adding to that family, a bathroom renovation may be a really good idea. Perhaps aging parents are coming to stay, or a college student is moving back home to start a new career and get his or her feet on the ground. A change in your family size is probably going to mean that your bathroom is going to experience more traffic and use, which means it is a great time to renovate and expand your space. You will have the opportunity to add newer, longer-lasting, and better quality bathroom fixtures to handle the expansion. 

These are just a few of the reasons why you might want to prioritize a bathroom renovation. Call us here at Ascension General Contractors for assistance in all your renovation projects.
