3 Ways Bathroom Remodeling Benefits Your Home
Few things can rejuvenate and benefit your home like a bathroom remodel. Remodeling one highly used area of your home can reignite your love for the home you live in. If you’ve recently fallen down the rabbit hole of bathroom remodel ideas, you might be wondering if it’s time to renovate your own bathroom, powder room or master bath.
Renovations offer a variety of benefits, and a bathroom renovation is no different. From increasing the market value of your home to providing new ways to utilize your space and energy, keep reading to learn more about the benefits of remodeling your bathroom.
Bathroom Renovations Increase Home Values.
As a homeowner, the number one benefit of your home is that it provides a place of sanctuary. From cooking, relaxing to raising your family, your home is the place you come to settle and escape from the world. However, while your house is a home first, it’s also an investment.
The housing market is constantly increasing demands on property owners to meet certain expectations. A renovation is one of the best ways to increase value and improve your status on the market.
Remodeling your home allows you to upgrade appliances and alter your home’s aesthetic appearance to match the current trends. The bathroom is a great place to start because bathroom renovation often costs less than other aspects of the home. A bathroom remodel also offers the opportunity to take a look at your plumbing and ensure everything is working correctly which can prevent future costs.
A bathroom renovation can also be a good choice if you’re looking to sell quickly and don’t have enough time for large-scale renovation projects. A seemingly small change allows you to increase value while helping the success of your sale.

Adds More Space in Your Bathroom
If you ask most people what they would want to change about their home, the answer is almost always the amount of space. It’s no surprise that we love to collect and fill our homes with things we love that make us happy, but these same things can add clutter.
Renovating your bathroom allows you to reimagine and recreate your space for optimal space utilization. For example, during the remodel you may have the option to move a wall, add shelving or add a tile niche in the shower. Think of ways to gain more space with your vanity and better storage.
More Energy Efficient Shower Head & Toilet
One of the main reasons for a bathroom remodel is to update the plumbing. Old pipes, toilets, showers, and sinks can cause a variety of issues in your home, from costly repairs to leaks. A bathroom renovation can do more than just benefit your home, it can benefit the environment. The upgrade will correct any problems that may be wasting water and creating energy leaks that affect your wallet and the environment.
Water saving shower heads that offer high pressure are a great way to save on the water bill. Toilets that use less water and can still flush properly are another great choice to save on water usage from your bathroom.
Water usage fact.
In an average home, showers are typically the third largest water use after toilets and clothes washers. The average American shower uses 17.2 gallons (65.1 liters) and lasts for 8.2 minutes at average flow rate of 2.1 gallons per minute (gpm) (7.9 lpm).
