The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in any house. How you feel about yours is important, regardless of whether you plan to sell your home anytime soon or not. Here are three signs that your bathroom is ready for a remodel or design update.

1. You Don’t Enjoy Taking Baths Anymore

Did you used to look forward to unwinding in the bathtub with a glass of wine and some good music? Are you currently using the bath area mainly for showers and emergency dog baths? These are signs it’s time for a bathtub restoration!

A good first step to updating your bathroom, is to decide if you want both a free-standing bathtub and a separate shower area, or if you’d like to enclose both within the same space. Next, you’ll want to consider how the updated bath complements the rest of your bathroom, and if you need to renovate all the existing tile or simply update the bath by itself. A piecemeal update will be easier if you’re opting for a new freestanding bathtub.

2. Your Flooring is Outdated

If you are hoping for a second way to instantly update the look of your bathroom, consider updating the flooring. Although vinyl has long been popular as a practical flooring element for kitchens and bathrooms, it may be more aesthetically pleasing to replace vinyl flooring with ceramic or porcelain tile. Both ceramic and porcelain tile are exceptionally waterproof and resistant to stains.

Stone or marble flooring is also an option, but can be expensive and needs to be waterproofed and resealed every few years. You might also consider cork flooring for excellent resilience and waterproofing. However, you'll need to reseal cork flooring every few years.

3. Your Family Needs Have Changed

You might have added a family member or two, or your children may have moved out of the house. These types of family changes may require necessary updates to flooring throughout the home.

An update to the sink area or incorporating additional storage space will help with updating the functional usefulness of your bathroom space. If you need to accommodate multiple children or transition the master bath to a couple’s space, consider adding a new sink.

You might also consider a free-standing towel and linen cupboard, for example, or adding hooks to the wall for towels or more shelving storage above the toilet or vanity area. Replacing the cabinets or deepening storage space when you replace the sinks is another option. The possibilities are endless!
