A home’s bathroom is likely amongst its smallest rooms, and is not usually a place for spending free time. After all, the idea of hanging out in the bathroom probably isn’t appealing to anyone – the room isn’t designed for this type of use. Because of this sensibility, bathrooms are often one of the last areas of a home to be remodeled.
Nonetheless, it’s important to remember this room is vital to the cleanliness and comfort of the people who use it. Suppose the spray in the shower doesn’t have good pressure and switches from scalding to icy every few seconds. While this common issue is annoying, it and others like it are often viewed as insignificant and, as such, not important enough to invest time and money into improving. It is imperative to remember these seemingly insignificant issues, which could be addressed by a bathroom remodel, make an honest difference in the quality of our day to day life.
Small issues ignored over a period of time can create larger, more expensive problems. Likewise, some matters which initially seem of little importance are actually urgently in need of attention. For instance, bathrooms with tile in colors and patterns clearly from another generation may be an eyesore but probably rank near the bottom of the list when planning to remodel a home. Problematically, these tiles may pose more of an issue than poor aesthetics when their watertight seal eventually fails allowing for mold to grow where water becomes trapped around or behind the tiles causing further problems and greater expense to repair.
Thankfully, whether a bathroom only has minor issues or needs a complete overhaul to manage serious structural damage, a carefully planned and implemented remodeling project can certainly make time spent in the bathroom much more comfortable. Moreover, a well remodeled bathroom, in keeping with the quality of the rest of the house, can help our overall feelings about a home be more positive.
