5 Signs It’s Time for a Bathroom Remodel

5 Signs It’s Time for a Bathroom Remodel

Here in Michigan, a bathroom remodel has an average return on investment of between 42 to 46%. So, even just doing small updates in your space can lead to a big return. But, how do you know if you really need to remodel or if you’re better off focusing on a different part of your home?

In this brief article, we’ll cover the most common signs that your bathroom is in need of renovation. Read through it so you know what to look for, then head to your bathroom to do a quick inspection. 

1. It No Longer Fits Your Needs

Perhaps the most obvious sign that it’s time to remodel your bathroom is that it’s no longer functional for your family. Oftentimes, this is a result of changes in your family dynamic. For example, while you may have needed a bathtub when your kids were little, it could no longer be necessary once you’re an empty-nester. 

Or, maybe you’re planning to age in place and you need a bathroom that’s equipped with safety features instead. If your bathroom is no longer suiting your needs, it’s time to remodel it. 

2. The Lighting Doesn’t Work in the Space

Over the years, lighting trends have changed quite a bit. While bright white lights over the mirror used to be the standard, you might find that it’s too harsh for your space. Alternatively, if you don’t have enough light in your bathroom, the whole space can lack functionality when you’re trying to get ready in the mornings. 

Consider scheduling a remodeling project if the lighting in your bathroom is outdated. 

3. There’s Not Enough Storage

It’s natural to accumulate plenty of bathroom products like toiletries, makeup, and towels. If you don’t have a sleek storage for all of these items, spending time in your bathroom probably makes you feel overwhelmed. 

If you don’t have built-in storage solutions, it might be a good idea to consider renovating your space. Create a more functional layout that can accommodate all of your bathroom’s belongings. 

4. You Notices Breaks and Leaks Around the Space

After years of use, it’s natural for your bathroom to show signs of wear and tear. However, some of these signs are indicative of a more serious issue. Brown patches on the walls or ceiling, for instance, can be a sign of water leaks. If you don’t address them immediately, you run the risk of serious water and structural damage to your home. 

Cracked tiles, leaking faucets, and degraded caulk are also signs that it’s time to show your bathroom some love. 

5. The Whole Space Looks Outdated

Since home design trends change quickly, it’s only a matter of time before your bathroom starts to look outdated. While you might still love your pink bathtub with matching pink tile, it may not appeal to buyers if you’re planning to sell in the near future. 

To help increase the value of your home, it’s best to renovate your outdated bathroom with new, modern design touches. Stick to neutrals to help curate a timeless look that won’t go out of style in the next few years.

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

– Donna P.

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

– Dorrie R.

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

– Norv S.

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

– Sherry G.

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"

– Sharron R.
