So, you want to replace a feature in your bathroom? Perhaps the shower isn’t working like it used to, your toilet is old-fashioned, or you don’t like the look of your sink. You could just take out that feature and replace it with a new one, or it could be the perfect excuse for an entire bathroom remodel.

Let’s look at some of the pros and cons of remodelling your whole bathroom as opposed to replacing that one feature.

Pros

Increase your home value

Most remodelling projects come with the benefit of increasing the value of your home. So, if you’re planning on selling your house at any point in the future, remodelling your bathroom will be more beneficial than replacing a single feature as it will really boost the resale value of your house.

A cohesive design

If you replace a single feature, it may be difficult to get it to match everything else in the room perfectly. At the same time, you might want to pursue a different style altogether, leaving your bathroom mismatched. Remodelling the whole room will allow you to select a cohesive design that you’re happy with for the room.

It’ll last longer

You only want to replace your sink at the moment, but in a year or two you might start to think your bathtub is also pretty outdated and you’ll be back at square one. If you remodel the entire bathroom, then you’re more likely to be happy with the result for years to come. Committing to this process will also ensure that everything is up to date and working correctly, so features are less likely to need fixing.

Cons

More expensive

Obviously, remodelling your entire bathroom will cost more money than replacing a single item, so you will need to consider the investment required before you make your decision. However, you should also factor in the potential increase to your home value that results from a successful bathroom remodel.

More time-consuming

As well as being more expensive, remodelling the entire room will also take more time than a simple replacement, especially if you choose to do it yourself. You can save time on your bathroom remodel by hiring professionals to do the job for you.
