5 Signs It’s Time to Renovate Your Bathroom

Most of us have dreams of a Jacuzzi tub, double sinks, adjustable lighting, and even a hidden sound system that will turn our boring master bath into an en suite fit for a king. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that your bathroom is in need of an overhaul. It may still be perfectly serviceable and meet all of your needs. However, there are definitely signs that will let you know when your bathroom is in dire need of a renovation. You simply have to learn to recognize them. Here are some that you’ll want to watch out for.

  1. Leaks. A leaky faucet isn’t necessarily reason enough to remodel your entire bathroom – all you really need in this case is a new washer or some plumber’s tape. But when a major leak causes damage, you’re going to have to undertake repairs anyway, so you might as well take the opportunity to do some renovations that are going to update your plumbing (at the very least), as well as improve the form and function of your space.
  2. Sagging cabinets. If your cabinetry is leaning, sagging, or otherwise coming apart at the seams, you’re going to need to replace it before it collapses, taking your sink with it. This type of deterioration is a good sign that it’s time for some renovations to occur. And since you’re pulling out elements of your bathroom anyway, you might as well think about replacing whatever else strikes you as an eyesore or a potential hazard.
  3. Lack of functionality. Whether your space is small and poorly laid out, the furniture seems to have been made for someone half your size and you have to stoop to get under the shower head, or the lighting is so bad that you often leave the house looking like your face has suffered a run-in with a paintball gun rather than your makeup collection, the lack of functionality in your bathroom could just prompt you to call in the construction cavalry in order to get started on your overhaul.
  4. Completely outdated…everything. There’s no reason to live with peeling linoleum and wallpaper from another century. If your outdated bathroom features finishes that were last popular in your grandparents’ heyday, then you might want to think about remodeling.
  5. Total displeasure. You may not spend as much time in your bathroom as, say, your kitchen, but you spend enough time on specific tasks each day that you want to make sure your space is well-suited to your particular needs. Whether that requires you to change the configuration of your bathroom furniture, take out a wall, or do a euro design remodel, it might be time for an overhaul if you face constant frustration each time you attempt to get ready in the morning. It’s hard enough to get out of bed and face the world without a shower that’s too small, a sink that’s too low, and wallpaper from 1975 that makes you want to gouge your eyes out. So if you look at your bathroom with disgust each and every day, you might as well start planning your renovations.
