Five Warning Signs That Your Bathroom Might Need a Remodeling

If you recently walked into your bathroom and winced, then it may be time to call the experts in to design something that you can be proud of. Sure, the bathroom is functional, but do you really want to look at a bathtub that has mildew or a toilet that your great-grandma maybe used?

To confirm your bathroom does need a fresh start, here are five warning signs you will want to look out for:

  1. Lack of Lighting

It is okay to have a semi-dark bathroom, but you don’t want it to be dark due to poor lighting.

Adding a combination of recessed lighting or new hanging light fixtures can make your bathroom look like new again. If you already have a small window, then you could even consider making it larger in order to draw in more natural light.

  1. Leaking Fixtures

Older plumbing tends to lead to a lot of problems such as leaks, interior wall damage or defective plumbing.

If you constantly find yourself calling a plumber for minor repairs, then it may be time to update your plumbing and even consider new, water-efficient low-flow fixtures.

Even if you think your plumbing is up to date, ask yourself the following questions, and if you answer yes to any of them, then you may want to second guess your bathroom’s plumbing: 

– Are your toilets older than your kids?

– Does your tile look like it should be in a retro diner?

– Are your walls starting to lose their original color?

– Can you see mold?

  1. Clutter and a Lack of Storage 

If you consistently find yourself storing items on your vanity countertop, because you have no room in your cabinets, then again, it may be time to second guess your bathroom’s layout.

No matter how small your bathroom is, there is always room for an additional cabinet or some sort of storage setup, such as shelving, to add that additional space that you so desperately need. There’s no reason to store your toilet paper next to the faucet when a simple bin or new cabinet could do.

  1. As Your Family Grows

Was it just you and your spouse when you moved in, but now you have a few kids running around? Or maybe you’re getting older and having a hard time getting into the tub?

As your family or life changes, you may find it necessary to make the proper upgrades to benefit your current lifestyle. Whether it’s a new step-in tub or rails along the bathtub for easier access, creating a functional bathroom will make life much easier.

  1. Cracked Tile or Peeling Paint

Touching upon the intro, you want to walk into a bathroom that you’re proud of. No one can say they are pleased with missing grout, peeling paint or cracked tiles. If you’re shaking your head while reading that last line, then it may be time to make those aesthetical updates. Aside from this, these signs may often be a sign of water leaks, mildew or even structural damage, which is something that you definitely don’t want to get worse.
