When to Remodel a Bathroom

If you notice any of the following signs, it’s time to start planning your bathroom remodel in Ann Arbor.

1. Your Design Is Outdated

Using a space that you find aesthetically pleasing can brighten your mood and just generally make you feel better. If your bathroom looks like it’s from three decades in the past, give it a refresh with a modern new shower, updated flooring, new paint, etc. Opt for classic, timeless colors instead of trendy designs for a look that will be in style for years. Get inspired for your project with these chic remodeling ideas

2. You Don’t Have Enough Space in Your Bathroom

If you have an older home, your bathroom might feel a bit cramped, especially compared to the larger bathroom layouts that are popular in newer homes. If you want to have a little more space, consider installing a sleek walk-in shower with glass to make the space look bigger. Or, opt for a large-scale remodel, changing the layout, or opening up the space to make it larger. 

3. Your Family’s Needs Are Changing

As your family changes, how you use your bathrooms will likely change too. Couples getting ready to have kids may need more bathtubs in their homes while those nearing retirement may be thinking about adding aging-in-place features like a walk-in tub

4. You’re Thinking of Moving Soon

If you plan to put your home on the market in the near future, it may be worth it to remodel your bathroom first. Prospective buyers put a higher emphasis on upgraded bathrooms and the right remodel can increase your overall home value by as much as 58%

5. There Are Obvious Signs of Damage

Finally, if there are obvious areas of damage in your bathroom, you don’t want to put off fixing them before they get worse. For example, if your bathtub or shower is leaking, eventually, this can lead to water damage in your home. Before that happens, hire a professional renovation company to identify the affected areas, remedy the issues, and install a new tub or shower in its place. 

What Is the Best Time of Year to Schedule a Bathroom Remodel in Michigan?

One of the questions we often hear from our customers is about the best time of year to remodel. Truthfully, the best time to get your project on the books is what works best for your schedule. But, here’s a closer look at what it’s like to schedule your remodel at different times of the year.

Remodeling in the Spring

When spring cleaning is on your mind, it’s only natural to start thinking about tackling home renovation projects. Spring is a great time to schedule your project because it’s often not as busy as the summer, so your project may be completed faster. 

Remodeling in the Summer

Many homeowners opt to remodel their bathrooms in the summer, so it can take longer to get your project scheduled during this time of year. However, if you want to schedule your remodel around vacation time, summer is a great time to do so. 

Remodeling in the Fall

Fall is another popular time for bathroom remodeling, as many homeowners want to upgrade their space prior to hosting guests for the holiday season. If you have kids, waiting to start your project until they’re back in school can also make scheduling easier.

Remodeling in the Winter

Winter tends to be a slower time in the bathroom remodeling world, so you might be able to get your project completed faster if you wait until the coldest months of the year. However, keep in mind that holiday closures could impact your project timeline.

"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!"

"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.

Review Image

"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!"
