Why should you renovate your bathroom?

Right after you wake up in the morning to just before you retire to your bed in the night, the bathroom is your go-to place in the house. An average person spends about 18 months of their life in their bathrooms. The bathroom is the place to get ready to face the world, it is the place where you find solitude and decompress. Several famous individuals found their inspiration while in the bathroom.

A bathroom ultimately sets the tone for the rest of your house and says a lot about the personality of the homeowner. A dirty bathroom reflects poorly on the taste and lifestyle choices of the homeowner as a spa-like bathroom exudes royalty and affluence. It is the most underrated and sometimes overlooked style statement in the house. It could just be a place to relieve and wash yourself or it could be the place where you decompress and pamper yourself. A visit to a luxury hotel with a modern bathroom or a spa will alert you on where your bathroom stands and what you need to bring up your bathroom style game.

Thanks to bathroom renovations and remodeling, you can always improve your bathroom’s usability, functionality and overall look and feel, no matter how it is at the moment. You can make the most of your existing bathroom and turn it into your style statement with simple décor tweaks or let the experts renovate the space into your preferred spot for solitude and self-pampering. Good bathroom renovation can turn your old or deprived bathroom by updating and installing new bathtubs, showers, tiles, sinks, toilets, vanities etc. and convert it into a spa of your choice with a powder room. While you decide on renovating your bathroom, there are a few important things you need to consider that make a great difference in the result.

Understand the current and future problems that could be caused due to older pipes and fittings. Water damage due to corroding equipment in old homes is a common issue that needs to be factored in while remodeling or renovating bathrooms alongside proper waterproofing for the entire bathroom. Tiles are important both on the floor and on the walls, You need non-slip tiles on the bathroom floor while the walls can be decorated in matching colour combinations and styles. Lighting sets the mood and a combination of dim and bright light settings can give you the best two options. Effective storage solutions help in creating a neat overlook of the bathroom. Ventilation is important to get rid of the odors while you can install fragrance diffusers to create a refreshing vibe. It is a good idea to install modern and water-resistant bathroom fixtures, offering an overall clean and shiny look. Effective placement of mirrors and vanity can create an impact of a large space impact and make your bathroom space feel bigger than it is.

Be ready to factor in and give in the required time as a good bathroom renovation is not a couple of days job. An average bathroom renovation could take anywhere between one to four weeks depending on the scope of work and design. But is completely worth it as a good bathroom renovation can increase the value of your home. The return on investment for homes with renovated bathrooms is way more. The ROI on bathroom renovations factors in the quality of material used, the space and functionality in addition to the appeal created by the superior design.
