For most Indiana homeowners, remodeling is a big deal. Typically, homeowners don’t take on large home improvement projects without a good reason. At Booher Remodeling Company, we’ve been remodeling bathrooms since 2001, and today we’re sharing the most common reasons homeowners choose to take on a bathroom remodel.
1. Outdated or Worn Fixtures
The most common reason we see for homeowners to remodel their bathrooms is simply that their current fixtures are old and worn out. Nothing lasts forever, and bathroom fixtures can wear out fairly quickly as they get so much use. The good news is, updating your fixtures gives you a chance to choose higher-quality fixtures that will last longer and are easier to maintain. If, for example, you currently have a glass shower door that collects residue and is hard to maintain, you can upgrade to a seamless shower door that is much easier to clean.
2. Changes in Lifestyle
Another very common reason to remodel is a big lifestyle change. Often, elderly homeowners will remodel their bathrooms to make them more accessible and safe to use as they age. These remodels will often include a walk-in tub, a taller toilet, and wider walkways to potentially accommodate a walker or wheelchair. Likewise, young families will often take on a remodel to make their bathrooms easier for young children to use. Converting a shower to a tub or trading a single vanity for a double can make bathroom sharing between growing children easier.
3. Add Features
Finally, homeowners will often upgrade their bathrooms to make them more comfortable and enjoyable. After all, your bathroom doesn’t have to be all about functionality- it can also be a place to relax and unwind. We love adding features like walk-in spa showers with multiple shower heads, heated floors, touchless faucets, and high-end countertops.
