The bathroom often gets the least amount of attention from all household rooms. However, some statistics show that the average person spends at least 30 minutes per day there. While that may not sound like a huge deal, those daily visits add up to about 182 hours over the course of a whole year. And, many people are above average in this area!
Since you’re going to spend so much time there, why not make sure that it lives up to your standards and meets your needs in every way? Here are 7 great reasons why you should consider a bathroom remodel.
#1 – Style changes
Perhaps you live in an older home, or your bathroom hasn’t been updated in years. Do you still have tile, fixtures, or paint colors that went out of style years ago? Or, maybe you’ve had a kitchen remodel, updated your master bedroom, and spruced up your living areas, but now the bathroom doesn’t match the style of the rest of your home.

#2 – Overall space and layout
Bathrooms are often some of the smallest rooms in the house, especially in older homes. It could be time to renovate your bathroom if the space is too cramped or the overall floor plan doesn’t match your taste.
#3 – Better storage options
If you do have a small space to work with, you can use it efficiently with custom cabinets or other modern storage options. Utilizing the best cabinetry can sometimes eliminate the need for taking down walls to increase space.
#4 – Functional changes
Your bathroom should match the stage of life in which you are living. A young couple with small children, for example, will have different needs and desires for their bathroom than an older couple who is seeking to age in place.
#5 – Repair water damage
Bathroom walls, paint, fixtures, cabinetry, and flooring are all exposed to moisture on a daily basis, and even more if the plumbing springs a leak. Over time, this can lead to the need for damage repair or mold remediation … two very critical reasons to renovate your bathroom!
#6 – Save money with energy-saving fixtures
Californians are no stranger to drought and the need for water restrictions. Renovating your bathroom to include energy and water-saving fixtures can save you money and improve your daily living even during times of water shortage.
#7 – Add re-sale value
