We all know that a renovation is one of the best ways to breathe life into your home and increase your standard of living and therefore your happiness. Renovations come in all shapes and sizes and don’t necessarily mean reconstructing your whole bathroom from scratch. A lot can be done with a simple remodel or a small renovation too.
In 2014, the HIA-GWA Kitchens and Bathrooms Report released by the Housing Industry Association (HIA) stated that 70% of bathroom renovations were on bathrooms between 11-20 years old, so if your bathroom is in that range, it means you are likely considering it. Whilst there are many reasons to renovate a bathroom, we’re going to look at some of the biggest.
Like everything in life, your bathroom ages, and with that not only comes wear and tear but faults, leaks as well as mould. A renovation will almost certainly fix all of these issues and more.
Some homeowners will renovate their bathroom in order to sell it, but any renovation you do will add a huge amount (usually 80% initially and rising over time) to your property value. Kitchens and bathrooms add the most value by far for obvious reasons. So if you are tired of your bathroom but don’t have a long-term plan to stay in your current home then knowing that it will add resale value is a big factor.
Whilst there are many reasons to renovate your bathroom (the size of your family being a big one), focusing on the bathroom aspects above, these are the biggest reasons to renovate. If you are ticking at least two or more of the above then it’s probably time you started speaking to your local bathroom company, prices may surprise you.
