The bathroom: That valued symbol of privacy, relief, cleanliness.

So…why don’t you feel better when you’re in there?

If this essential human haven is suddenly somehow not being all that it should be for you, well, something’s wrong. Here are 6 signs it’s time to renovate the bathroom.

1. People’s stuff is everywhere.

Do you find yourself getting annoyed at how bathroom products get placed at random on the sink, tub, and cabinets? And, no matter how many times you remind others to put their stuff away, it just keeps getting crowded and messy? Hammerdown can recommend ways to make better use of the space you have. Using cabinetry with thoughtful storage spaces that seamlessly blend with the rest of the bathroom, we will work with you to find the right solution.

2. The decor needs an upgrade.

The bathroom is just as susceptible to design trends as anywhere else in your house; it can remind you of years ago, and, maybe that’s what’s putting you in a bad mood? Hammerdown’s interior designer will ensure your bathroom renovation matches your personal taste and remains timeless and tasteful.

3. Something—or things?—are leaking!

We may prefer not to think about it but it’s normal for leaks to appear in your bathroom over time. The important thing is to fix the problem before it gets any worse! The same goes for leaky faucets and showerheads or running toilets—these leaks will run up your water bill. If you’ve had problems with leaks in the past, consider it fair warning! Get your bathroom renovated and you’ll end up saving money in the long run as Hammerdown replaces fixtures with low-water-consumption versions.

4. Mold, cracks, lingering unpleasant smells?

Thanks to high humidity most bathroom surfaces are prone to developing mold and associated odours. The more noticeable it is, the worse off the damage usually is. If you’ve been putting off doing something about the mold that seems to return now matter how many times you clean, it’s time for a renovation. 

5. You’re already planning to sell.

Committing to new decor and fixtures will certainly spruce up the look of your home and drive up its property value, should you in fact be thinking of selling your place. At Hammerdown we frequently see homeowners recover most of their investments in​ bathroom renovations on resale.

6. Your gut tells you.

What’s that saying, a change can be as good as a vacation? If your gut tells you to upgrade the bathroom, simply listen to your gut! Seriously. Bathroom renovations will improve your day-to-day routine, and, yes, make you feel better. Doubly so, for having pre-empted any damages that could have occurred from procrastination!

Remember: You should always feel better in the bathroom!
