outdated bathroomThis is the sign you have been waiting for to start your dream bathroom renovation. It’s one of the most rewarding home improvement projects. The average homeowner will spend between $6,200 to $15,250 on a bathroom remodel. This can have a big impact on your home’s value and attract potential buyers if you are thinking of selling.

You don’t have to give up on your bathroom remodeling dreams just because you aren’t planning to sell soon. It’s possible that your bathroom would benefit from some upgrades.

Some signs that your bathroom needs a refresh.

1. You Have a Mild Case Of Mold

It’s no surprise that homeowners are plagued by mold in bathrooms. Your wallpaper may be discolored or have edges that are peeling. Perhaps the area surrounding your fan has some watermarks. While you can remove minor mold using bleach, a bathroom renovation can stop a small problem from becoming a bigger one.

Consider updating your ventilation system and insulating the bathroom if you suspect mild mold. If you think there is a serious mold problem, contact a professional mold removal company for remediation and testing.

2. You have old fixtures that leak

  • Worn toilet flappers
  • Dripping faucets
  • Leaking valves

Fixing the smallest leaks in the bathroom can help you save up to 10% on your monthly water bill. Choose modern fixtures that will reduce your water usage. Your old fixtures will save you more money than if they were in good working condition.

3. You have a bathroom with chipped tiles and grout stains

Most bathroom tiles can be repaired relatively inexpensively. It’s a lot cheaper than the average cost of a remodel, but it is more difficult to repair discolored grout. Grout, by its very nature, is porous and susceptible to stains and mold growth. It’s possible to clean grout that is discolored, but you may need to replace the entire tile.

Consider it a good excuse to give your shower or bathroom walls a new look.

4. You Need to Change Your Plans

It is impossible to keep things the same. Your bathroom should change if your needs do. You may have a new pet or child, so a handheld showerhead will make bathing easier. You may have moved in with your parents, who would prefer to use a walk-in tub or shower. You may not use your tub and want to have more space. Remodeling your bathroom can make it more functional and suited to the lifestyle you live today.

5. You Bathroom is Outdated

It doesn’t need to be in bad shape for you to remodel your bathroom. It can be as simple as getting tired of the décor. Modernizing your bathroom can increase the value of your home.

Maybe your bathroom is an old relic from the 1970s. The shag-style carpeting will prove it. Your bathroom may feature the pink and seafoam-green color scheme that defined the 1980s. Some homeowners will find the bathroom charmingly retro, while others may want to rip it out.

6. How to make the most of a small bathroom

Install shelving to create new storage under the sink. Mirrors, a new coat of paint in a light color and some new lighting will help to open up small spaces.

7. You are planning to sell your home

Even a modest update to your bathroom can be a selling feature. Do not let a cracked dub or outdated décor deter potential buyers. Consider adding a bathtub for your family if you do not have one. Granite (rather then laminate) is a modern finish that can add to the appeal.

Repairs should always take priority over aesthetic upgrades. The average return on investment for improving the flooring is 107%. The lowest ROI is when you replace your regular tub with a jetted bathtub. This is because homeowners do not want to deal with the hassle. Focus on simple updates, such as a fresh coat of neutral paint, if you’re working with a limited budget.
