You may have heard about some of the latest trends in home improvement—the remodeling world is buzzing with statements like, “the number of bathroom remodeling projects are through the roof!” It’s true: according to Realtor.com, bathroom remodeling requests across the country went up by 64% in 2015 alone.
We think one of the main reasons for that spike is that people are starting to learn how affordable a bathroom remodel actually can be. In fact, a bathroom project typically costs half as much as a kitchen renovation, and still adds plenty of resale value to your home! So, what kinds of bathroom improvements are homeowners choosing?
People can go years without noticing how poor the condition of their bathtub is. Sometimes, all it takes is a quick inspection to realize that your old tub may be chipping and cracking, or even starting to grow mold and mildew. But not all bathtub replacements are chosen because of a decaying tub—a lot of the time, people choose bathtub replacements simply to upgrade the overall look and comfort of their bathrooms.
A new bathtub can completely transform your bathroom! Beyond helping to give your bathroom an updated aesthetic, it will also make those after-work soaks even more relaxing.
Bath and Shower Liners
If you’re experiencing issues with your current bathing apparatus but aren’t in the position to opt for a complete replacement, an acrylic liner can renovate the surface-level of your bathtub or shower. While these don’t provide the same glamour, or sparkle as a totally new installation, they remain a popular option given their affordability and quick installation.
In our modern lifestyles, people are replacing long soaks in the tub with quick, efficient showers that make the most of your time and your bathroom’s space. In fact, the American Institute of Architects reports that tub-to-shower conversions are rapidly gaining popularity. The conversion of a bulky bathtub to an upright shower helps streamline your bathroom, adding to both its functionality and beauty.
