3. Fix and Prevent Damage

When remodeling your bathroom, you have the opportunity to fix any current damage you have and prevent any more damage from occurring.

Because bathrooms are exposed to more moisture than other areas of your home, your bathrooms are more susceptible to water damage and mold/mildew growth.

Water damage can happen if your water pipes are damaged. And, it can happen if there isn’t a proper moisture barrier (which prevents water from seeping into other areas of your home) installed. This water damage can also promote the growth of mold or mildew.

So, when you remodel your bathroom, you’ll find out if there is any damage and correct it before it worsens. You’ll also be able to install features, like a moisture barrier or properly connected pipes, that will prevent any damage future damage from occurring. 

Another benefit to remodeling your bathroom is that you can discover – and fix – any damage. You can also prevent future damage from occurring.

4. Lower Your Utility Bills

If you have an outdated bathroom, you can improve your bathroom’s energy efficiency and water usage by remodeling.

Remodeling your bathroom can help you save on your utility bills by improving your energy use. If your bathroom has outdated insulation, you can lower your heating and cooling costs by installing energy-efficient insulation. You can also install lighting that uses less electricity.

You can also lower your utility bills when remodeling by choosing fixtures with low water uses. Modern toilets need much less water to flush than older toilets – saving you money on your water bill. You can also get a low flow showerhead and faucet to further reduce your water usage.

5. Make Your Bathroom More Comfortable.

You and your family use your bathroom every day. But, if it’s outdated, it’s likely not as comfortable to use as it could be. Remodeling your bathroom can up the comfort level, so you and your family can enjoy your bathroom.

One way a bathroom remodel can make your space more comfortable is by adding extra storage. Whether it’s with a bigger vanity with storage, building a linen closet, or having wall storage, you can add enough bathroom storage for your whole family when you remodel your bathroom.

When updating your bathroom, you can also add more modern conveniences – like heated floors or towel racks. That way, you and your family will be warm in the winter and after showers/baths. You can also add other comfort items – like a deep tub, a rain showerhead, and a mirror with built-in lighting.

Another way to make your bathroom more comfortable through remodeling is by putting counters, storage, towel racks, and more at the right height for your family. If someone in your family is either too tall or short to comfortably use your bathroom, you can change that with remodeling.

When you remodel your bathroom, you can make the space much more comfortable for you and your family.
