The bathroom is one of the most used areas in our home, and if it’s outdated, it can feel out of place with the rest of the house. There are many reasons your bathroom may need a remodel, including leaks, old-fashioned decor, old plumbing, and more.
Here are some signs that your central Florida bathroom, located in or around Plant City, Lakeland, or Winter Haven may need to be remodeled.
Your Bathroom Decor & Plumbing Is Outdated
Especially in older homes, bathroom decor may look a bit dated. Not too many are opting for colors that were popular in the 1970s these days. If your bathroom doesn’t match up with the rest of the house, it can seem out of place. Also, if you’re planning on selling your home any time in the near future, a bathroom that looks older can deter potential buyers.
If your decor is out of date, then it’s likely that your plumbing is also in need of an update. Leaky pipes, faucets, and toilets can lead to higher water bills and potential water damage. Newer toilets and showerheads also come with water-saving features that can cut down on your monthly water usage. Check for showerheads that have the WaterSense label, as these can help save up to 2,900 gallons of water yearly.
You can also consider updating your tubs, showers, and sinks to a more modern version, especially if they have hard water stains that won’t go away with cleaning. If you don’t use the tub, then there’s also the possibility of changing it to a walk-in shower with more room and updated tile work.
Mold Is Beginning to Develop in Your Bathroom
If you’re starting to see signs of mold in your bathroom, then it is definitely time to look at remodeling options. Exposure to mold can cause health issues such as respiratory problems, eye irritation, and more. If mold is growing, your bathroom may not have enough ventilation or there could be a leak somewhere.
If you have a lot of mold, then it may be necessary to schedule mold remediation services with True Builders.
Your Bathroom Isn’t as Functional as it Needs to Be
Does your bathroom feel small or lack storage space? Often, countertops end up littered with all the items you need to get ready in the morning because you don’t have enough storage space to keep it all put away.
Older bathrooms may also be smaller, which can make for a chaotic morning if the whole family is trying to get ready all at once. With a remodel, you can address the lack of storage space and also change around the layout of the bathroom so that it doesn’t seem as small.
Poor Lighting, Lack of Outlets Makes it Difficult to Get Ready
If your bathroom is poorly lit, then it’s not as easy to do hair, apply makeup, and do the other things we need to do to get ready for work, school, or running errands. A bathroom with bright, recessed lighting can help with that and help brighten things up so you can see what you’re doing. It may also be possible to add in a window or skylight.
You can also look at adding more outlets to your bathroom. We need outlets for electric razors, hair dryers, curling irons, straighteners, and more. When there are only two outlets, that becomes very difficult.
