Two Signs It’s Time To Upgrade Your Kitchen Or Bathroom

Bathroom Or Kitchen Remodeling: Two Signs It’s Time To Upgrade

It’s never a bad idea to get some bathroom or kitchen remodeling done, but there’s always a question of timing. These are major—and intrusive—upgrades for a home, so you want to make sure the time is really right to do them. Here are two major signs that the time has come for bathroom or kitchen remodeling in your home.

Health Safety

If the current bathroom or kitchen presents legitimate health risks, particularly if you’re moving into an older home that hasn’t had any major work done, now is the time. Some homes are now 100 years old or more and have lead water pipes, which are toxic, knob and tube wiring which is dangerous, or even mold or mildew.

In these instances, it’s better to modernize these features to contemporary safety standards. Mold, in particular, can cause big issues for people with chronic lung conditions such as asthma.

Lifestyle Changes

Our lives are not static, and sometimes, changes arise that require adjustments to our living conditions. If you’re starting a family, for example, you may need to change your kitchen to accommodate safer methods of food preparation or make way for newer appliances such as a dishwasher.

On the other hand, if you’re getting older and experiencing mobility issues, and you want to keep living in your home, you may need to invest in walk-in showers or bathtubs. While these are investments, it’s still a cheaper alternative to having a live-in assistant just for these activities or moving out of the home and being forced to live in a senior residence with these facilities. Even accidents that require a person to use a wheelchair may mean current kitchen counters and cabinets are no longer as easy to use as they were in the past.
