The reasons are simple. Making improvements on your home is always a good idea as an investment, but in times like these when the market isn’t ideal it’s a good time to get ahead of the curve. Improvements now are a good hedge against the down swing in the economy and the drop in housing prices. As prices rise in the upswing, it will only help overall when it is time to sell the home.
But more importantly, making improvements in a bathroom is a benefit for YOU, the person who actually has to live in the house NOW.
More often than not, the bathroom takes a backseat when it comes to remodeling.
Kitchens, bedrooms, and living areas get special attention, while bathrooms become an afterthought. Typically the remodeling that is done is done for convenience. This can mean replacing a toilet with a new toilet that’s exactly the same… without ever thinking of comfort and aesthetics. Bathtubs get a replacement, but seldom does the thought go into the project of “how can I make my bathroom time a time of comfort and luxury?”
Well those days can be over starting right now for your bathroom remodeling. Ventura County is an area known for its great affluence. It’s ranked as one of the top 100 in the country for this affluence. With home prices falling at an average of around a half million dollars in mid Ventura County towns like Camarillo… and even greater ($750,000) in the north western areas. If you live in Ventura County you obviously have worked hard to deserve comfort. One of the best ways to give that to yourself is bathroom remodeling that leans toward luxury.
Thinking about your bathroom as it is now, is it designed with comfort in mind? Do you feel a sense of pampering? If not, it may be time to make that change.
On the other hand, if you’re steadfast in your thought that a bathroom is strictly for getting in, getting it done, and getting out, then you may want to consider the shape of your bathroom, and how long it’s been since it’s been remodeled.
Very often, old fixtures over time will cost you more in expenses than will the price of remodeling. An older outdated toilet may be good enough to get by, but is the possibility of a damaging leak worth the risk? Or you may want to consider the extra gallon, or even half gallon of water that gets wasted with every single flush over a period of years.
How about the plumbing behind that older model bathtub? Are you taking the chance of a slow leak that you don’t notice until the damage is so great that you have to now remodel two rooms? A leaky faucet behind a vanity can even become a fire hazard when combined with wires that run behind the walls in your home. The point is that even if you’re resolute on your position of what a bathroom should be, preventing maintenance hazards is likely within your logic wheelhouse.
There are a lot of benefits to bathroom remodeling in Ventura County. The main however should be YOU, the resident…the one who spends a great deal of time in this room.
Whether you want to take that outdated bathtub and replace it with an elaborate sauna/shower with a multi-head system or just a new simple designed bathtub with updated plumbing and clean slate – it’ll be well worth your while and your investment.
If you choose to replace your ten year plus old standard toilet with a luxury toilet that warms the seat, washes and dries your bottom, and even closes the lid for you…or just a replacement standard do-everything-yourself toilet, your bathroom remodeling project will certainly be an investment that you either get a return on through either opulence or monetarily.
