Often the task of renovating or upgrading the bathroom is one that many homeowners tend to put off, either because of the cost or the upheaval involved in being without a bathroom while work is carried out.
But an up to date bathroom can make a huge difference to your home and not only the way that you feel about spending time in one of the most used rooms in your house, but also the resale value of your property if you are considering moving on.
It may seem daunting but it truly is worth taking the plunge in a variety of circumstances, so let’s look at the top three signs it’s time to replace your suite!
We spoke to who are bathroom specialists, and they told us “often if your family is growing or changing, this can be a big reason to replace your current suite. For example, if you are expecting children you will likely want a bath if you do not currently have one, or perhaps more space for storage.”
Another scenario is if you or a family member are experiencing reduced mobility or disability, where a walk in shower or bath might make life a great deal easier where lifting oneself in and out of a bath could be challenging.
It looks dated
One of the most common reasons to upgrade your bathroom suite is that it isn’t to your tastes any longer, or perhaps you’ve just moved into a new home and the previous owners hadn’t given the bathroom a revamp in some years. You can add a lot of value to your home by tackling this room!
You shouldn’t have to live with a bathroom you do not enjoy spending time in, particularly because it tends to be the room you spend a lot of time in getting ready for your day, and it ought to make you feel good about yourself.
If you consider the fact that you will likely upgrade it should you come to sell so as to not put off potential buyers, it seems unnecessary to live with it now if you are only going to have to do it for somebody else’s benefit.
Excessive wear and tear
If your bathroom suite has been subjected to wear and tear over the years it may have suffered some damage, and this can be one of the most difficult things to ignore.
Not only will your bathroom suffer aesthetically, but moisture damage can cause mould to grow which can be hazardous to your health.
Accidents happen, and if do you end up with one part of your suite damaged, for example, a cracked sink, you will often need to replace your whole suite in order for it to match!
