3 Reasons To Update Your Bathroom

Your bathroom is meant to be a space that’s both functional and inviting. If your space is old or outdated, a bathroom remodel is one of the best ways to refresh your home’s design and increase its value. Remodeling your bathroom not only makes daily life more enjoyable, but affords you the opportunity to create a space that’s right for you.


Savvy homeowners know that a quick and functionally impactful bathroom update is a tried and true way to maximize not only their home’s resale value, but the recoup rates of individual fixtures. To do that, though, it’s important to choose renovations with clear, tangible value that will translate to future households.

Updating your bathroom’s plumbing or replacing a bulky, outdated tub with a curbless, space-saving shower are examples of projects that provide clear value for current and future homeowners. The former future-proofs the space by reducing long-term maintenance concerns, while the latter creates additional space for foot traffic and the addition of other amenities, like storage units or open shelving.


This is an excellent opportunity to change some of the, let’s say, bolder aspects of your bathroom that have not aged well, like monochromatic walls and fixtures, porous flooring, or an abundance of floral décor. That’s not to say that no one else would ever enjoy these types of flourishes, but the chances are so slim that you risk having a decorative scheme that is too personalized—and potentially alienating to future buyers.

Utilizing a multi-tone color scheme that favors more muted hues, you can give your bathroom a more contemporary look, as well as a warmer, more welcoming appeal. Versatile fixtures, like countertops with built-in storage, can also provide a space-saving solution with modern flair. Of course, if you are looking for a more gradual change, we recommend identifying one design attribute you like, such as your wall décor or lighting scheme, and choosing similar design updates that bring a sense of visual continuity to your space.

This will give you and your household the sense that your bathroom is a personalized, well-conceived space, while prospective buyers will see this cohesion as proof that the previous owners were mindful when tending to one of their home’s most crucial rooms.


Remodeling your bathroom means that you can customize the space to fit your needs. Increasing the functionality of your room allows you to enjoy your space without worrying about outdated or even unsafe features. Whether you need more storage, and new bathing area, or you’d like to make your space more accessible for your future needs, updating your bathroom gives you the power to create your ideal space.
