Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in the house. You spend a lot of time in there making yourself feel fresh and ready for your day. If you have guests over your house, they will most likely use the bathroom. If you cringe at the thought of having someone use your bathroom, it may be time for a renovation. Here are six signs that it is definitely time to redo your bathroom.
1 If You Dread Having To Use or Having a Guest Use It
Some rooms in your house you can avoid. If you want to avoid your bedroom, just close the door and sleep on the couch. If you want to avoid the kitchen, order take-out every night. If you want to avoid your bathroom, well, you can’t very well do that, so it may be time for a renovation.
2 If it is Outdated
Does your bathroom look like it is straight out of the 70’s with brightly colored counters and matching wallpaper? Has it never been remodeled since way before you moved in? Keeping your bathroom up to date will help the value of your home go up. Consider remodeling it if is outdated.
3 If Your Counter is Full of Stuff Because Your Bathroom Lacks Storage
If you feel unorganized or your counter and shelves are overflowing with products, toothpaste, and appliances, like your hairdryer or curling iron, then it is probably time to redo your bathroom. It sounds like you need more efficient space to organize the products you use every day. If your extra towels are stacked somewhere visible, then you need to make yourself some more storage space. To create a relaxing space, your counters and shelves should be free of clutter.
4 If it Smells Like Mold or Mildew
The last thing you want to smell when you go into the bathroom is mold or mildew. Well maybe not the last thing, but if you are smelling mold and mildew, it is time for a bathroom renovation. This is an indication that tiles, grout, and other places are collecting water and making it smelly. Not only is this unpleasant, but it is also not good for you to be breathing in.
5 If the Faucets Leak or the Toilet Constantly Runs
Not only is this annoying, but it also means you are wasting water. It could cause your water bill to be outrageous or you’re well to run out. You can save money if you replace with more energy-efficient fixtures.
6 If There are Damaged or Dirty Tiles
If your tiles and grout are still dirty after you wash them, you need a bathroom makeover. When tiles are damaged, they don’t do a very good job of keeping water out of your walls. Their job is to keep water out of unwanted places to prevent mildew and mold from forming. If they’re not doing their job, they need to be replaced.
If these signs remind you of your own bathroom, it may be time for a renovation. Your bathroom should be a place that is spotless, calming, and fresh. If it is not, consider that it might be time for a redo.
