If your family has grown or changed and you realize that you don’t have the right bathroom space, you may be wondering if it’s time for a bathroom addition or a bath remodel. Either one may be the right answer for your family. Here are some ways to decide which is best for your needs.
Factors to Consider
The best way to make a decision is to look at the biggest factors to consider. They include:
- Reason – Do you only have one bathroom and simply need another; a bathroom addition may be your only real solutions.
- Cost – Obviously, a bathroom addition will require a bigger investment than a bath remodel, sometimes as much as three times that of a remodel.
- Space – If you have space in your home where an addition can go, that might be the right choice. However, if you’d have to add on to your home to make the space, your budget needs to be even higher.
Create a More Efficient Space
If you realize that a bath remodel is the best option, talk to your remodelers about how to create a more efficient space. For example, see about rearranging the space so the toilet and shower are separate from the sink. This would allow for two people to privately use the same bathroom.
Too many kids and not enough space to brush teeth and wash hands? Look at the layout and decide if you can add a sink to the vanity so you have two sinks. Another option is to consider adding a sink to a bedroom that’s adjoining the bathroom. The shared wall may have plumbing which would reduce the cost of running new pipes. This is a great solution for a tween or teen room as you can create a dressing area in the space.
