7 Signs Your Bathroom Is Ready for an Update

If you are feeling bored with your bathroom or working on a number of home renovations, you probably already have a daunting to-do list. If you are considering listing your house for the market, the bathroom is one of the most important areas to have updated in the home.

Kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular rooms in the home. It’s important that you enjoy the space that you are creating in your house. You may just want to get some updates in before a big sale. 

Renovating the bathrooms in your home can be a long, detailed process. Here at Harkraft, we offer a variety of services and products that are perfect for taking away a lot of the updating stress! Here are 7 signs that you are ready for an update to the bathroom:

#1: An Outdated Design

Your bathroom updates should have a more modern design to appear to the value of your home. You don’t want to have your bathroom looking like it was designed when the house was first constructed. Toilets and faucets need updates, as well as the showerhead. 

You may want to consider removing any wallpaper or popcorn ceilings. Often, older bathrooms have carpet flooring – which no modern design would ever let happen. Older bathrooms also tend to have one smaller sink. More modern bathrooms tend to have his and her sinks.

#2: Outdated Colors

All-white bathrooms are practically extinct these days, but many homeowners have not updated the colors of the room. Pink, powder blue, black, or pistachio are all vibrant colors that would look great in a modern bathroom. This can be a simple DIY project or maybe a job to consider hiring professionals for.

There are certain colors such a coral or yellows that just don’t seem to age very well. You may want to consider more modern colors that hold up over a longer period of time.

#3: Mold Problems

Water usage is a big part of any bathroom. This always creates the potential for mold which lives in moist environments. A major mold infestation can become a serious issue of smell and decay in this area of the house.

There are typically pretty big signs when you are dealing with a mold issue. You will often see green or black spots on the walls or floor. Even ants in a bathroom can be a sign that mold is developing. Besides decreasing the value of your house, it can also create some serious health issues. It is important to understand how to identify mold and how to find professional help to resolve the issue before it begins to spread even further.

#4: An Old Shower Door

You would be surprised how much adding a new shower door can change the feel of your bathroom’s style. After all, it is the main focus of your shower, one of the biggest elements of the room. 

At Harkraft, we offer shower doors in a wide variety of styles, materials, and finishes. Along with framed vs. frameless and slider vs. pivot door options, we also offer frosted glass doors, opaque doors, and everything in-between. We want to help you build the perfect product for your bath space.

#5: Outdated Bathroom Accessories

While they may seem minor, bathroom accessories are an essential part of these spaces. Harkraft provides a host of accessories, including towel bars and paper holders, in different styles and aesthetics.

We are also able to help with robe/towel hooks, towel rings, and grab bars. We want to help you make even the smallest details of your bathroom update perfect.

#6: You’re Ready for a Custom Mirror
