10 Reasons to Remodel Your Bathroom

1 - Shower Space

It can be uncomfortable to feel cramped, as though the walls are closing in on you. You should not feel like that when you are having personal time to yourself in the shower. The shower is supposed to be a few moments of comfort, when nothing is bothering you. A cramped shower can infringe on that comfort and you will want to rush through the shower.

A lot of people are doing a bit of bathroom remodeling to maximize their shower space. Some of the options are inexpensive and simple to install, like a curved shower rod.

2 - Adding a Sound System in the Bathroom

When you go into the bathroom to take a shower, do you find yourself singing tunes under your breath? A lot of people do. You can admit it. Some people even make a point to bring a bulky boombox into their bathroom with them. But that is inconvenient. Others will try to bring their phones with them and hook them up to speakers. But that is not good for your phone and is also inconvenient.

An increasingly common bathroom remodeling maneuver is to install a stereo system in your bathroom with waterproof, digital controls right in the shower with you.

3 - You are tired of standing.

Some people are inclined to take a bath rather than a shower because they do not want to stand during that time. Who could blame them? They had a long day at work or perhaps they did not get a good night's rest, and the last thing they want to do is stand in the shower. The sit down shower is becoming a more popular solution to this problem. This simple innovation has a low shower head hovering over a bathtub so that you can just sit comfortably and enjoy your shower.

4 - You want a night light.

When you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, you will either do one of two things. First, you might go in the bathroom, turn on the lights and be blinded by how potent it is. Second, you might go in and stumble around, looking for the toilet and the sink or the towels, knocking things over and maybe even breaking something or tripping over the cat. Many toilets come equipped with a nightlight that activates when it detects your presence.

You do not want to have to wait impatiently for the other person to finish using the bathroom before you can get ready for work. Also, there might be a lot of clutter if both of you are using the same sink.
