Benefits of Remodeling Your Bathroom
If you’re like most homeowners, you have a never-ending list of repairs, upgrades, and remodeling projects on your to-do list. Building an ideal living space takes time, and most people do it one room at a time. One room that usually is the first on their list is the bathroom because it’s one of the most used, and fixtures wear out more quickly.
Let’s look at why bathroom renovation should be high on your home improvement priority list.
It’s a fact that most homebuyers pay particular attention to the home’s bathrooms, and some will actually pass on a home if they’re too outdated. If you’re not planning on staying in your house for long, it’s wise to update the bathroom to help maximize the sale price and attract buyers. And, if you are staying, upgrading the bathroom adds beauty and function.
People who live in older homes often have unsafe bathrooms, especially if older residents live in the household. Upgrading the bathroom to add safety features like anti-slip flooring in the tub or shower, handrails, and upgrading outlets to GFCI receptacles go a long way to making your bathroom safer for everyone.
It’s easy for a bathroom to become small and cramped as your family grows, so remodeling is an excellent way to reclaim space and add storage options to keep clutter at bay.
The great thing about remodeling your bathroom is that it doesn’t have to be done at once if your budget doesn’t allow it; you can do a few things at a time, which makes it more cost-effective but still gets you closer to your goal.

Santa Maria Bathroom Tub Replacement
As mentioned, you don’t have to remodel your bathroom all at once; you can do it a fixture at a time if you like. Besides the bathroom sink, the tub is probably one of the most used in a typical bathroom, and depending on how old it is; it won’t take long to show signs of wear.
Because people rely on their bathtubs for relaxing and washing, it’s good to note signs that it might be time to replace them.
Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew make your bathtub look disgusting; they also can cause health issues like respiratory problems if it gets out of hand. Sometimes, when mold and mildew get out of control, it’s better to replace your old bathtub instead of spending days trying to clean it.
You’re probably used to dealing with stains left behind if you live with hard water. Sometimes, stains become so embedded in the porcelain they’re nearly impossible to clean. Stains are unsightly, and they can carry loads of bacteria and germs.
Cracks and Leaks
Bathtub cracks are difficult to fix, and if they’re deep enough and leaking, the only thing you can do is replace the tub because repairs are typically a short-term fix. Most leaks are obvious — you see puddles around the base of the tub. However, some leaks are only identified by filling the tub and monitoring the water level over a few hours. Leaks will worsen and cause water damage and mold, and mildew growth.=
