How Often Should You Update Your Bathroom?

Mar 30, 2020

How Often Should You Update Your Bathroom?Based on trends, the answer is roughly four to five years. Based on the lifetime of bathroom appliances, the answer is a little more difficult to gauge—maybe 15 to 20 years, depending on the quality of the bathtub and/or shower system.

That being said, it’s important to recognize that these approximations are just that—rough estimations with multiple variables. Deciding when and how many times to renovate your bathroom, outside of an SOS water leak or appliance break, is completely a personal choice. Whether you are attempting to revamp the look of your home to boost ROI before a sale or you’re simply tired of its dated appearance, the size of the upgrades and their recurrence is up to you. The real question then becomes:

Why & When Should You Update Your Bathroom?

There are several reasons homeowners opt to upgrade their bathrooms. However, some of the most popular motives include:

It’s Not Functional

Layout is key when it comes to your bathroom, especially if you share the space with other people. If you’ve been struggling with an awkward layout or limited storage, a bathroom remodel can be a lifesaver. For those with limited mobility or who are planning to age in place, changing the layout of your bathroom can additionally make things a lot safer and more accommodating for your unique needs.

It’s Falling Apart

Problems with plumbing, loose tiles, and damaged bathroom appliances are issues that you should not be dealing with daily. These problems, if left unaddressed, can eventually develop into bigger issues down the road—water damage and mold growth being among the worst!

It’s Smelly

Okay, it’s a bathroom; how awesome is the room supposed to smell? If you clean your bathroom every weekend and there are still lingering odors, it could be the result of hidden issues like mildew growth behind tile and a leaky toilet. Taking care of stubborn bathroom odors can be managed by updating ventilation or replacing the plumbing in the room.

It’s Outdated

Trends come and go. But if you find that your bathroom no longer fits your style and want a change in scenery, it’s time for a renovation. This can be as simple as updating fixtures or wall colors; you don’t have to make huge changes to your bathroom to improve its look and feel.

Quick Fixes & Affordable Upgrades

Bathrooms should be a comfortable place where you can escape and unwind after a long day. If you are instead staring at all of the imperfections of the space, invest in a bathroom remodel! These don’t have to be big changes, especially if you are trying to stick to a budget or are short on time. Fortunately, there are a lot of quick and affordable bathroom upgrades that can help you transform your space and stay on trend without a complete overhaul, including:

  • Installing new shower fixtures
  • Replacing cabinetry
  • Updating lighting
  • Changing the color scheme of the room with textiles and new paint

  • The crew was on time, professional, and a pleasure to deal with. When it was completed, the only sign that they were even here was a new shower unit. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a bathroom remodel/upgrade.
