What’s the main reason why someone would choose to undergo the renovation of a part of their home? To provide a new and refreshed look, and upgrade older fixtures or technology, which may be less efficient.
The bathroom is a space that gets used daily and could always benefit from a refresh, if not a complete remodel every few years.
Considerations to Keep in Mind Before you begin a Bathroom Renovation:
‘Your first concern when it comes to renovation is to make sure you’re upgrading the space to work efficiently. But if you want to add a few of your dream upgrades, like a tub with jets, or heated towel racks, this is the time to do it. Many homeowners say that they just want a quick remodel. Depending on the age of your bathroom, I’d consider a full gut. Why? Well, I’ve done a ton of bathrooms over the years where one bathroom remodel gets covered up with the next, and so on. Look at it this way, if you don’t go behind the walls of your bathroom, how do you know your plumbing and electrical are still in good shape? Not all problems will be obvious, and you don’t want to redo your bathroom just to tear it all down in a year if you spring a leak. Spend your money wisely, and only spend it once.’ (Mike Homes, nationalpost.com)
