How to Know If You’re Ready for a Bathroom Remodel

How to Know If You’re Ready for a Bathroom Remodel

A rustic, vintage-themed bathroom is not a problem unless it's too old to function at its best. No one's stopping you from indulging in Parisian life while having a bubble bath or getting cozy in your cottage core-inspired tub. But when the faucets start leaking, the bulbs are flickering, and your walls begin cracking, it might be a sign for some overhaul. 

Whether you want to sell your house or keep it stylish and functional, knowing the signs you're ready for a bathroom to remodel might be helpful.

Here are some clues telling you it's time to remodel your bathroom. 

High Utility Bills

If your utility bills have been steadily increasing, the culprit might be outdated water fixtures. An obsolete toilet or shower head might be causing you to use more energy and water than necessary. Updating these fixtures to more energy-efficient models can save you money on utilities in the long run.

Outdated Technology

This is a common indicator that it's time for a bathroom remodel. Technology continues to evolve, and if your bathroom is stuck in the past, it may be time to upgrade. Look for toilets and showers with newer technology, such as dual flush toilets or pressure balance showers. These updates can save you money and make using your bathroom more comfortable.

Issues With Water Pressure

In addition to outdated technology, the poor water pressure also points to a bathroom remodel. Having faucets with low water pressure causes you to take longer showers and commit more water wastage. If you're having issues with water pressure, installing a low-flow shower head can help increase the pressure of your water and make your showers more enjoyable.

Faulty Plumbing

It is both a nuisance and an expense. Not only can it cause significant damage to your home, but it can also be a huge inconvenience when it comes to plumbing emergencies. If you've had any flooding, leaking, or backed-up toilets, it may be time to upgrade.

Outdated Look

Nothing detracts from your home's value more than having a bathroom with an outdated look. Updating old tiles and fixtures can make your bathroom feel more modern and luxurious. You'd be surprised how a new tile floor or shower surround can upgrade your bathroom experience.

Change of Needs

If your family has recently grown, or if you're looking to upgrade, remodeling your bathroom can help to serve your new needs. Installing a new toilet or shower can make your daily tasks easier, and adding extra storage can do magic to your bathroom routines.

You are Unsatisfied With Your Current Design

The current design looked great to you some years back, but after some time, you began to wonder if you loved it. If you're not satisfied with the look of your bathroom, that's always a sign to upgrade it. Updating your bathroom can help make it more aesthetically pleasing and inviting.


Remodeling your bathroom is a big decision but can provide several benefits. Not only can it save you money on utilities, but it can also make your home more comfortable and beautiful. Look out for the telltale signs above to gauge your readiness for a new bathroom design.
