The bathroom is usually one of the smallest—but also one of the most widely used—parts of the average home, giving plenty of reasons to remodel it.
In this post, our home improvement contractors at Owens Construction list the top reasons why you should pursue a bathroom remodel.
1.Expanding the Bathroom’s Floor Space
There’s only so much you can do with limited floor space, which is why a lot of homeowners expand their bathroom by bumping out the wall. Bumping-out refers to removing the exterior walls and adding about two feet of floor space, which doesn’t seem like much but would normally be enough to improve traffic flow in a conventional bathroom.
If, however, you want a bit more design flexibility, there’s always the option of pursuing an addition. Unlike a bathroom expansion, which is restricted by the current layout, home additions start from scratch, giving you maximum flexibility when crafting bathroom designs. To learn more about the pros and cons of each option, consult a general contractor.
2. Update the Bathroom’s Aesthetic
Floorspace is closely tied to functionality, but bathrooms aren’t just about functionality. They’re also about creating an atmosphere that’s conducive for relaxing. A lot of homeowners prefer their bathrooms to have a spa-like feel. Integrating natural elements such as potted plants or nature-inspired tile designs is one way of creating a spa-like atmosphere.
If you’d prefer to keep your bathroom looking new, we recommend keeping an eye on tile grout. Discolored grout can make your bathroom look older. To keep unsightly grout stains from ruining your bathroom’s aesthetic, you can have a contractor apply colored or stain-resistant grout.
3. Improve the Overall Bathroom Experience
Periodic improvements can, over time, improve the overall bathroom experience. For more tips on improving the bathroom experience, consult one of your local bathroom remodeling contractors.
