Is It Time To Remodel My Bathroom?

Tracy Tesmer Design/Remodeling answers the question: is it time to remodel your bathroom?

When Should I Remodel My Bathroom?

After years of remodeling and renovating homes in the North Georgia and surrounding areas, we find that many homeowners have a misconception about when they should remodel their bathrooms. In addition, they often assume that a restroom renovation is going to cost them tens of thousands of dollars and will disrupt their living situation for weeks – or months – at a time. While some bathroom projects can be costly and take time, the truth is, each homeowner’s needs are different and, more likely than not, you can remodel your bathroom without breaking the bank.

But how do you know that the time has come to give your bath area a little homeowner TLC? For starters, ask yourself this: why would I remodel my bathroom? If no answers immediately come to mind, it could be a sign that you don’t actually need a remodel. More likely than not, however, you do have a reason that prompted you to consider a bathroom remodel in the first place.

If you have dripping faucets, water leaks or faulty, out-dated plumbing fixtures, a remodel could be in order. Not only will you save money on water waste and energy leaks, but you could also be adding additional value to your home as well. Another benefit to undertaking a project like this is the fact that you may save even more money in the long-term, as ignored leaks and sewage issues can lead to much larger problems (think mold and mildew) if left unchecked.

Another reason to hire a bathroom remodeling expert is if your bathroom is outdated and you want to get a bathroom redesign prior to listing your home for sale. Modern home buyers are savvy to home trends and often seek a home with good bathroom design and updated features. Having a beautiful, spa-like retreat can help add value to your property and make your house stand out from the competition.

From simple additions such as grab bars and easy drawer-pulls to raised toilets, roll-under sinks and roll-in showers, a universal bathroom remodeler will walk you through every step of the bathroom remodel process.
