Plumber’s Guide: 5 Benefits of Remodeling Your BathroomJuly 17, 2019
Alongside the living room and the bedroom, your bathroom is likely one of the most used rooms in the house. If the bathroom that is currently in your home does not have some of the fixtures you desire or simply has a style that feels outdated, it can start to affect your mood anytime you need to use it. To remedy some of these issues, you might want to consider doing a DIY bathroom remodel. Here is why your plumber would tell you it is a good idea:
You Can Make It Fit Your Needs
Are you in desperate need of more counter space or do you want a standing shower instead of a tub? Remodeling your bathroom can allow you to update it to fit your specific needs. Depending on your budget, you can completely redo the entire bathroom all at once, or if you have a smaller budget right now, you also have the option of remodeling in stages. For example, if the most important upgrade to you is installing a bidet and getting a new mirror, you can get that done and slowly update the remainder of the bathroom at your leisure.
It Costs Less Than a Professional Customization Service
Many people cringe at the thought of ‘remodeling’ because it can cost a lot of money. This is true if you hire a professional customization service to do the remodeling for you. However, if you put in the hard work yourself (and bring on your local plumber to consult or finish up some of the finer details), you can have a brand new bathroom at a fraction of the cost. Plus, you will also have more control over the cost and type of raw materials used.
It Can Double As a Bonding Activity
If you feel as though it is nearly impossible to get your kids off of their phones these days, this remodeling project can also double as a bonding activity. Enlisting your children to help choose fixtures and learn some basic plumber’s skills can lead to some great memories along the way of creating a beautiful bathroom for the whole family to use!
You Can Make Your DIY Inspirations a Reality
No longer does your dream bathroom only have to exist on a Pinterest board. Once you decide to remodel your own bathroom, you can change the style to be anything you want! You can opt for a classic, clawfoot tub instead of the basic, cookie-cutter one your home came with. You can add a built-in right by the shower to hold your fresh, fluffy towels. Before you start making your dreams a reality, first be sure to consult your plumber to make sure the project is something that you can accomplish with your budget and manpower to avoid any surprises down the road.
You Can Eliminate Anything You Don’t Like
Have you always hated the ugly tile floor in your bathroom or the leaky faucet? Now is your chance to get rid of it forever! In addition to big changes, you can also use this as an opportunity to make small upgrades as well, such as swapping out the dated brass drawer pulls for some shiny new, chrome ones, and replacing any corroded nuts and bolts in your toilet.
