While it’s not typically the room where we spend the most time, a bathroom has many necessary uses as we begin and end each day. And with people spending more time at home now, the bathrooms in our homes are likely getting extra use. This may bring to mind ideas for making improvements to our bathrooms for a number of reasons.
If you’ve been wishing for a new bathroom but have hesitated about a remodel, here are some excellent reasons why many homeowners are choosing to do bathroom remodels right now.
Increase Home Value
Experts say that as long as a bathroom remodeling project is done correctly, a homeowner can get up to as much as 73.3% of the return on the investment as well as increase the value of the home. Modernizing fixtures and creating more functional space are the most valuable approaches to a bathroom remodeling project. Upgrading to water-saving, high-efficiency plumbing fixtures will also save money on the water bill.
More Time at Home
Rather than most of the day spent at work and school, many families are spending more time at home now which means more time using their own bathrooms. Families are finding they want more comfort and privacy while are together at home. More bathrooms, larger bathrooms, spa designs, no-touch fixtures for germ control—bathroom renovations for pandemic life have many possibilities. Investing in your comfort is worth it!
Aging In Place
The concept of “aging in place” has become a new normal as more people are choosing to modify their homes to prepare for their later years rather than downsizing or moving to retirement communities. Rather than aesthetics or home value, design for safety and mobility is the focus for these types of bathroom remodels. Curbless showers, grab bars, and countertop heights are just some of the features of remodeling for aging in place design.
