When it comes to your home renovation, the hardest place is where to start. You may be full of ideas about how you can change your house to look fantastic and improve the way it functions, but even though you may have a big list of areas that you would like to fix the most, you should start with where is most important to you first. Most people would consider the kitchen here, as it’s the hub of the home and the place to cook, hang out, and just spend time generally. The kitchen is a functional area, and people want to spend time in space that matters.
The thing is, bathroom installations are often overlooked. Just as much as the kitchen is functional, the bathroom is functional, too. The bathroom is also one of the easiest and often cheapest places to start when you want to start with home renovations. You want your house to look good, and you want it to sell well one day. Starting with your bathroom will help you to add value to your house and also kick off your renovation journey. Below, we have all of the reasons that you need to upgrade your bathroom first.
- You’re going to add value. We just discussed this one, but adding value to your house is always worth a second mention. When you upgrade your bathroom, you’re going to change the way the bathroom functions. You may currently have a bathtub with two faucets and a plug, with a side toilet and sink. An upgraded bathroom could transform the entire space into a wetroom with a rainforest shower. You may then choose to put the toilet in a separate room next door to the bathroom so that your new wetroom is the focus.
- Using the space better. Right now, your bathroom is packed full of potential, you may not be using the space properly. With the help of a designer and an architect, you can extend and change your bathroom so that it has more storage and you can start to properly use the storage that you already have.
- Energy conservation. An excellent reason to upgrade your bathroom is sustainability. There are so many homes – almost all of them – that use toilets regularly, fill up the bathtub regularly and waste more water than they use. If you upgrade your bathroom, you can reduce the amount of energy being wasted. A tankless water heater can play a big role in this, and this ensures your hot water never runs out. Conserving this amount of energy is great for your home and it’s great for the environment.
If you are ever considering making upgrades to your home – whether that’s to improve the value or just enjoy them – bathroom renovations should be the first place that you start. Now that you have all the best reasons to upgrade, start by making a list of all of the things that you want to include in your new bathroom. And don’t forget to make a list of all the contractors and designers that you could use to help you to change the way your bathroom looks.
