3 Signs You Should Remodel Your Bathroom, Gales Ferry, Connecticut

Bathroom renovations make your home more livable and increase your home’s resale value considerably. However, some homeowners won’t start renovating until it’s absolutely necessary. If you have been putting one off, below are a few indications it’s time to remodel.

How to Tell If You Need a Bathroom Renovation

1. It’s Damaged

Water damage due to leaky pipes, pooling water, or repeated splashing can damage the flooring, drywall, and trim and lead to mold growth. It’s often difficult to distinguish mold from dirt. To tell the difference between the two, test it with diluted bleach (1 part bleach and 8-10 parts water). If it lightens immediately, it’s likely mold or mildew. Clean the area with a stronger bleach concentration. If you are unable to get rid of the mold or the floor and walls are rotting due to moisture damage, it’s time to renovate.

2. Your Needs Have Changed

Do you frequently have to wait for the bathroom? Adding additional sinks and a wall that separates the toilet from the rest of the room will improve your family’s comfort. If you're developing mobility issues, upgrade the bathtub, install a higher toilet, and put in grab bars. With these updates, you can age in place safely.

3. You’re Selling

If you plan to sell your house in the near future, a bathroom renovation will make it more attractive and increase the price. Many homebuyers want a bathroom that is in good condition and large enough. They’ll also look for plenty of storage space and an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. Adding trendy features, such as waterfall faucets, copper fixtures, a stand-alone bathtub, and large mirrors, will also make selling your house easier.
