It’s common to get used to not so good looking parts of your home. This goes for the bathroom as well seeing that it’s used on a daily basis.
This is only one room but this room is a place where renovation can change it significantly – If you take note of everything you want to change.
You can turn an old run down place into a lavish space, make your property value go up, and make your home more enjoyable after a remodel.
Take a look at these obvious signs that your bathroom is in desperate need of a makeover:
It Doesn’t Photograph Well
This is a problem that shows us more often when you go to sell your home so make sure to take a look before you end up stuck in this home for a while. A bad picture of your home can often make it difficult to sell so take a few pictures of the bathroom and check it out from a different point of view.
You would be surprised how fast your brain will be able to see the parts that may need to be changed when you put this area in a photograph to analyze over and over.
The Paint Colors Are Outdated
Paint colors like many other old marvels still start to get old as time goes. If you have a color that was popular in the 90’s such as shell-pink it’s likely that it’s time to think about getting a new coat. Implementing colors such as white and gray give off an appeal that doesn’t grow old with the time making it a great option for keeping your space modern going forward.
It Smells Old
Because of the activities that take place in this room, over time it will develop a distinct smell that may be unpleasant. This is most times caused by a bad toilet with wax seal or poor ventilation.
Making upgrades such as installing new windows, an upgraded ventilation system, renewing your plumbing, and getting a new toilet are steps you can take to get rid of this terrible smell.
The Layout Doesn’t Work
Because indoor plumbing wasn’t as advanced as it is now, homes from the 1920’s to the 1940’s had toilets that we always put right next to the bathtub.
In this day and age this design can be an inconvenience to you and your family.
Adding a different water closet allows you more flexibility with your design to add the things you truly want and place them exactly where you decide.
You Notice Brown Patches
Brown rings that appear in your ceiling or on your walls are classic signs that you are experiencing a leak somewhere within your structure. When this occurs it may be time to get to work. If you do nothing these leaks can deteriorate wood inside your home which can lead to untimely repairs that could cost an arm and a leg. Take care of your structure by implementing new fixtures as necessary, taking care of any plumbing problems that come up, modernizing your space to mirror your unique style.
The Lighting Doesn’t Work
A popular bathroom decor option in recent years has been to put a rack of spherical lights over your vanity. Since then we have come up with many different options that are a lot less harsh and look a lot better. When the design of your lights doesn’t give you a laid back vibe you may want to take a look at some other option that could satisfy your needs.

You Don’t Have Enough Storage
