Signs It’s Time to Refurbish Your Bathroom

If you have been wondering whether it’s time to refurbish your bathroom, here are a few questions you can ask yourself to help you decide what to do next.

Should I Refurbish My Bathroom?

Is the Time of Your Last Refurbishment a Mystery?

When you use your bathroom every day, you can become ignorant to some of the outdated features and décor choices. You get so used to it that if you think about the last time you changed any of these elements, it would give you a shock. Don’t panic though, you don’t need to do a complete overhaul! Just a lick of paint, new taps or a few updated accessories can help your bathroom feel refreshed.

Is the Number of Inhabitants Changing?

Life is unpredictable and circumstances can differ whenever, so you should take this into account when it comes to your bathroom. If you are expecting a new addition to your family or members are moving out, your bathroom and its facilities should accommodate these changes. You could install extra sinks or an additional shower unit for the increasing number of bodies or go bigger with a more luxurious bathtub so you can relax in your quieter house.

Are You Looking to Move House?

Refurbishing your bathroom and updating some of the existing features can make a big difference when it comes to the value of your property. If you are looking to sell your house and move, soon or even in a few years’ time, renovating your bathroom can prove to be a worthwhile investment. A new bath or an updated heating outlet will look better on the house listing and will impress potential buyers.

Is the Layout Impractical or Dysfunctional?

No matter what size your bathroom, you need to make sure that the space you have got is utilised properly. If you are tired of the disorganisation of towels and toiletries, if you miss having a soak in the bath, or you constantly walk into the sink, you need to evaluate and see where changes can be made. Simple, small storage solutions can aid towards a smoother bathroom experience or a bigger installation of a new bath can enhance your relaxation. 

Do You Have Poor Lighting?

If you haven’t thought about redecorating in a while, you may not have thought to have the electrical work looked at either. This is particularly important if your bathroom is quite old, then you can explore a number of different lighting options. Lighting is incredibly important for your bathroom as it is a place for beauty and getting ready for the day, but it can also change the entire feel of the room. It can make it feel bigger and a lot more functional, so if your room seems a bit dull, add some more fixtures to let it glow.

Are the majority of your answers ‘yes’ to these questions? Then, it sounds like you need to update your bathroom. No matter how big the project is, contact us today to speak to one of the team and discuss your plans for your refurbishment.
