Top 5 Reasons for Bathroom Remodeling

barrier free no threshold showerWhether there’s damaged flooring from a leaking toilet, or just wear-and-tear from general use, bathrooms can be the first areas in your home to show their age. So, when is it time for a renovation? To help you answer this question, we have prepared the following article to help you to determine when it is bathroom remodeling time.

1. Family Needs

As families evolve over time the function of the bathroom does as well. A growing family may find that adding a master bathroom could shorten the morning line-up outside the bathroom door. Empty nesters may find that a stand up shower suits their needs better than a tub. In short, it makes perfect sense to remodel bathrooms to meet the changing needs of the homeowners.

2. Mold and Mildew

If mold and mildew are wreaking havoc on your bathroom, then it is likely that moisture isn’t being controlled effectively. Mold will thrive in a warm moist environment–on walls, ceilings, grout and caulk joints. In addition to creating a potential health hazard, mold damage behind the walls can go unnoticed and compromise the integrity of the structure. Renovating the bathroom utilizing proper construction techniques and innovative building materials will create a bathroom that controls moisture and stands the test of time.

3. Limited Space

If the bathroom is cramped, you can remodel to solve the problem in one of two ways. 1. Expand the footprint into an adjacent area, such as a closet; 2. Better utilize the existing space. By rethinking cabinetry and features such as the vanity, sink and shower, you can create a more open space, without enlarging the footprint of the room.

4. Water Efficiency

Options for water efficient fixtures have improved greatly. Whether it’s a water efficient toilet, or a low flow shower head that actually increases pressure, there are great ways to cut monthly water consumption without sacrificing style or comfort.

5. Just Plain Outdated
