7 Signs That It’s Time to Upgrade Your Bathroom

Our bathrooms are functional spaces. They serve a purpose and have to cater to our needs. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t love them. As well as being somewhere to take care of your hygiene needs your bathroom should be somewhere that you can relax and pamper yourself. If you’ve been considering a bathroom makeover for a while, here are some of the signs that it’s time to go ahead and make some changes.

There are Obvious Signs of Wear and Tear

Bathrooms and kitchens are two of the rooms in our home that are most likely to show signs of wear and tear. They get used regularly, we use water in them, and they can be damper than the rest of the house. Many scuffs and scratches can be easily repaired, but at some point, you’ll start to find that there’s always something that needs fixing or replacing. At this point, an upgrade can make life much easier.

You Use it for Purely Functional Purposes

When we have a bathroom that we love, with plenty of comfortable features, we’re keen to spend time in there. If you have a relaxing bathroom with a spa bath and underfloor heating, you might be keen to lounge in the bath for hours. If you only ever use your bathroom to get clean and use the toilet, an upgrade could add extra functionality.

Cleaning is Taking Longer

Over time, dirt and debris build-up, especially in the bathroom. Over the years, cleaning to the same standard starts to take longer and needs more elbow grease. An upgrade can make it much easier to keep things clean.


If your bathroom is in largely good condition, and something breaks, it’s often cheaper to have that particular piece fixed. But if a lot of things are damaged, or something like your shower is damaged and the rest of the room is becoming harder to care for, a remodel might be a good idea.

Safety Concerns

Another reason you might need to make changes to your bathroom is that the needs of your household are changing. If you are having a baby or getting older, you might need to add safety features or make other changes.

Storage Issues

If your bathroom is cluttered, but there’s no obvious space to add storage, a remodel can make it easier to fit everything in.

You Don’t Love it

As with most rooms in your home, there are easy additions and changes that you can make to freshen up your bathroom. But if you’ve started to hate it, and feel as though you can’t relax in there, you might need a redesign from to help you to fall in love with your bathroom again.

Our bathrooms get frequent use, and as the place where we get clean, it’s no surprise that they need plenty of TLC to keep them looking their best. But at some point, a good clean and some TLC won’t be enough to keep your bathroom looking good, smelling nice, and being a place where you can enjoy a relaxing soak in the bath. If you are out of love with the décor, or your bathroom always seems dirty or damaged, it might be time for an upgrade.
