Many smaller home improvements are not a challenge. But in the bathroom, making changes isn’t as simple as it may seem. That’s because even a small-scale change could be more difficult than you expect. This situation becomes even more apparent when you need to move plumbing or electrical systems around. So if you’ve been pondering whether or not to launch a bathroom renovation project, we have some useful information for you!
You’ve Got Drippy Fixtures
The nonstop dripping sound of a leak – any leak – can drive you up a wall. Some hasty repairs could work, but at some point, it might make more sense to get your fixtures replaced. Once you’ve arrived at this conclusion, it’s a good sign that you would benefit from a partial bathroom renovation. Showerheads and faucets are particularly prone to leaking and dripping. That means old fixtures need to be on their way out and replaced with newer models that will not waste your water without you being aware of it.
There’s Signs of Rust Everywhere
Rust becomes a problem anywhere there is a steady source of moisture. A bathroom covered in rust isn’t just unsightly; it can be dangerous to your health as well. So if there’s rust everywhere, it’s time to remodel your bathroom. Humid air leaves behind condensation, even when the water isn’t running. The supply lines that run in and out of your toilet are also vulnerable to rusting. Try your best to scrub all of that gunk away. Renovations might be your only option, especially if cleaning doesn’t cut it.
You’re Trying to Save More Water
Earlier in this blog, we brought up water conservation. Saving water decreases your bills and helps the environment, too. Water-saving fixtures and features, such as low-flow technology, can make a massive difference. Even though it’s easy to assume that all bathroom renovations must be dramatic, that isn’t the case. Instead of falling for this misconception, don’t hesitate to make noticeable changes in smaller increments. Along with low-flow-optimized toilets, low-flow showerheads and touchless faucets are fantastic investments that will end up paying for themselves many times over!
And You’re Putting Your House on the Market
Last but not least, are you considering selling your home? Perhaps it’s time to move on and get a fresh start somewhere else. Part of staging your home includes making every room presentable, if not spotless. Besides, newly-renovated bathrooms, and remodeled homes in general, allow you to negotiate a higher asking price!
