bathroom remodelYour bathroom remodel may take many forms, from a huge and total transformation to a minor update with a few water-efficient fixtures and a new coat of paint. Whether you're aiming for the sky or something a little closer to earth, there are many reasons to remodel your bathroom.

Your bathroom remodel will improve a space that you use every day and probably use multiple times a day. Unless you're remodeling a guest bathroom, your bathroom remodeling project will improve your life every day you own your home.

Your Beautiful Bathroom Remodel Doesn't Have to Cost an Arm and a Leg

The kitchen and the bathroom are usually considered the biggest potential projects in a home remodeling project, but you can enjoy a beautiful new bathroom without breaking the bank.

While you may choose to completely gut your bathroom and create a new layout with completely new flooring, walls, and everything else, you can also make smart choices in your remodeling plan that can help you save money while still enjoying a bathroom that looks completely new and refreshed from its old version.

The Spruce offers some simple tips for enjoying an affordable bathroom remodeling experience:

  • Cover and Re-Surface Instead of Replace
  • Search for Low-Cost Substitutes
  • Refinish Tub Instead of Replacing It
  • Install a Pre-Fab Shower Rather Than a Tiled Shower

If the footprint of your bathroom will remain the same throughout your bathroom remodel, you can often enjoy a rather affordable overall project cost. Moving the toilet and shower and sink to different walls is usually the largest type of expense you may encounter in a bathroom remodel, but there's no rule that says you must change the entire layout of your bathroom.

Enjoy Your Bathroom Now and When You Sell Your Home

One of the common discussions homeowners have regarding their remodeling project is the return-on-investment they may enjoy once they sell their home. U.S. News & World Report suggests:

"...homeowners will recoup slightly more than half their investment. However, it may be essential to making a sale, especially if there is only one bathroom in the house."

However, the ROI is only a small part of what makes a bathroom remodel a great part of a home remodeling plan. When you choose to remodel your bathroom, you get to enjoy that brand new space every day that you own your home, whether you sell it next year or keep it in the family for life.

Not only can a new and beautifully remodeled bathroom help you sell your home if and when that time comes, but it can also give you a little more enjoyment in your home every day. Unlike a backyard pool that you may only use in the winter or a guest bedroom upgrade that your guests might only use a few times a year, your bathroom will offer a daily boost to your enjoyment of home ownership.
