When you remodel a bathroom, you will be affected in several ways. For starters, there’s an emotional aspect. Looking at your current bathroom probably makes you feel down; otherwise, you wouldn’t be thinking about remodeling. Maybe to you the room isn’t as spacious as you would like or perhaps you have a vision of a beautiful walk in shower. Once done with your remodel, your new space will feel wonderful. What a great place to refresh and relax. Soaking in a spa tub or standing under a rain shower head in your bathroom shower can ease tired muscles. Whether you’ve been working hard on yard work, or been busy, busy, busy at work, a new bathroom can be a great retreat.
Then, there’s the practical aspect. Your current bathroom may be configured in a way that doesn’t really work for you. During a remodel, you have the chance to redesign the flow and create a more usable space. You can take the opportunity to build in more storage space with cabinets, new shelving, or a larger bathroom vanity unit. Accessibility may be a big driving factor as well if you have an elderly person living with you. Opening up a space to put a walk in shower gives extra safety.
When it comes to finances, a remodel will definitely have its effects. The larger your plans, the larger the final bill. But, you’re not just spending the money for now, you’re also raising your home’s value. Speaking of increasing value, consider a contemporary spa theme. Dark woods and white towels make a bathroom look very upscale. If your bathroom has enough space to include a walk in shower and maybe also a spa tub they are instant selling points if you do sell your home.
While you may not think at first that a bathroom remodel has spiritual aspects, it’s not that far fetched to see that it can. Going with the spa theme mentioned above, with it’s zen feel, definitely brings a sense of peace. Those who like to meditate can find a lot to like in such a bathroom. A walk in shower with a teak bench can provide a place to spend a few minutes just being still. Of course, a spa tub will also provide a great place to meditate, especially with the addition of candles and dimming down of the bathroom lighting.
Every day, you use your bathroom. Whether you are considering a remodel for practical, financial, emotional, or even spiritual reasons, all of these contribute to a great end result. Take the time to create the most appealing space possible. You will thank yourself for it later.
