5 Reasons Why You Should Remodel Your Bathroom

5 Reasons Why You Should Remodel Your Bathroom

A bathroom isn’t just a room in your home for showering and grooming. These days, bathrooms have become a sanctuary or escape, where people can go to relieve stress and relax after a long day. However, many homeowners are hesitant to remodel their bathrooms. A bathroom remodeling project can be expensive and stressful. It can be difficult to determine what areas in the bathroom you should focus your remodeling efforts on, how to improve bathroom functionality, and what type of remodeling would turn your outdated bathroom into the modern oasis you’ve always dreamed of. Learning why bathroom remodels are so important and what options are available can help you determine where to start and which professionals can help you change your outdated bathroom into the functional, beautiful, oasis you and your family need. 

1. Remodel to Suit Your Style/Improve Design & Aesthetics 

Knowing where to begin with a bathroom remodel can be challenging for most homeowners. However, working closely with an experienced professional who can create a design plan and remodeling strategy that works with your budget, and functionality and style needs, can help you create the bathroom you’ve always dreamed of. An outdated bathroom can impact how functional your bathroom is. It can also lower the value of your home. With some simple changes and updates, you can instantly modernize your bathroom and add value to your home, which is a huge plus if you plan on selling your home at some point in the future.

Additionally, a remodel will allow you to choose design elements that work with your personal preferences and style. During this time, you can explore new design elements, from shower doors and tile colors to fixtures and finishes that will work with your budget and personal preferences.

2. Increase Your Home's Value

When a potential home buyer looks at a house, the kitchen and the bathroom are often the rooms they will pay the most attention to. An outdated bathroom, one that lacks functionality, can be reason enough for the potential home buyer to choose one listing over another. A bathroom renovation will allow you to incorporate new, modern, and efficient bathroom products, such as a new shower head, a low-flow toilet, or a frameless glass shower door, which can make your home more appealing to potential buyers.

3. Create a Personal Escape 

Your bathroom should be a personal oasis, a place where you can relax and unwind after a long day at work. It should include comforts and features that improve your quality of life. Consider adding a new, more functional shower, custom mirrors and paint in neutral earth tones, and modern fixtures that can update the look of your bathroom, while including other important design elements that will have you looking forward to relaxing in your personal spa-like environment.

4. Energy Efficient Upgrades/Lower Utility Costs 

Most outdated bathrooms could use modern, water-saving devices. A bathroom renovation project is a good time to replace an old bathroom sink that leaks, add water-efficient toilets, and make other changes that can help decrease your monthly energy bill.

There are other ways you can improve your bathroom’s overall energy efficiency. Installing CFL or LED lights is an important bathroom update that can help you save on your monthly energy bill. Adding an energy-efficient ventilation fan is another good option.

5. Improved Safety 

A bathroom remodeling project can provide the safety features you and your family need. If you live with an elderly or disabled family member, stepping over a bathtub can be dangerous and difficult for them, putting them at risk of a fall. Updating your outdated bathtub and installing a frameless walk-in shower can make your bathroom safer while making it easier for your elderly or disabled family members to enjoy more independence. Adding grab bars and shower seats can also improve bathroom safety for you and your entire family.

What People Are Saying About Us

I did everything from my iPhone! Easy peasy!

The team at GCS was so easy to do business with. I did everything from my iPhone. I received quotes for my project with options to choose from. We scheduled appointments by text. Measurements were precise and the glass install looks great. When it was all done I made payments through an app on my phone. Easy peasy.

– Philip Capizzi

Very Accommodating!

Just had our new shower glass and frame installed and we are very pleased. Brendan and Tyler did a great job and we really appreciated them working around the other flooring project we had going on at same time. Very accommodating. The glass and framework looks great. I'm looking forward to using the shower tomorrow with the new look. VERY pleased. The company is very responsive, quick to come out and measure, and got the job done. Thanks!

– Steve Gerhart

A Great Experience!

A great experience from the first estimate, measuring and install. Really well priced and was surprised at how quickly the shower doors were delivered and installed an entire week early. Was very pleased with the entire experience from start to finish.

– Kathleen Ruhl

Super Fast Turnaround Time!

I found this company after looking at many top-rate glass companies in Denver and seeing that I had to fill out forms and wait for them to get back to me. Some took days, and others have yet to call or email back. GCS was easy to text in from the website and talk to someone and get a quote rather quickly with examples over the text message. Within a few mins, I had a quote and an appointment set! That's how you earn the business! Make the initial request EASY and prove what the client is looking for! They were on time for every appointment and were professional. The glass took a few weeks to arrive, but the team kept us in the loop via text and never missed a detail. We are so happy with our choice, and the glass looks fantastic! They even added a complimentary glass coating to keep the soap scum at bay for two years. I'm starting a new project and will use them again in the next few weeks! Highly recommend.

– Alex Tooke

Look No Further!

No need to search any further for a new shower door. Not only is GCS very fair on pricing (believe me, I did my due diligence) but their customer service is out of this world (so rare these days). From working with Chance on pricing, Austin on installing, and Tom on measuring and follow through, everyone was extremely professional. Tom is a perfectionist in the best of ways. His attention to detail is reflective in the quality of work. Thanks team!

– Caitlin Kinnett

Best Experience Ever!

We had the best experience work with GCS Glass! We knew going in some of our product was on back order and would take awhile. We were so impressed with GCS Glasses communication! They always communicated what was going on every time they got an update. We never felt like they “forgot about us” because they were in constant contact. Their workers were great and professional. Price wise they were slightly cheaper than competing companies. We could not be happier with this company.

– Jessica Laue-Flint

Highly Recommend Company

I would highly recommend this company for your shower door. Brandon was quick to respond to my request for quote. He provided excellent details about the options and prices including pictures, all in text so was very convenient.

– Teresa Hastings

Professional staff, Outstanding installers

GCS Glass is the premier company in AZ. Professional staff, outstanding installers. I ordered 3/8" Starphire clear tempered glass, brushed nickel hinges and hardware to match my bathroom fixtures. Emily sent me a detailed invoice with photos of the hardware. This was the finishing touch to the custom bathroom I built. If you want the absolute best GCS will deliver.

– Mark Plennes

Smooth Process, Amazing Quality

We absolutely Love our Glass from GCS Glass Supply. The whole process went so smoothly and the quality is Amazing. Joe and Tim were very responsive each step in the process. The install by Junior and Camden was above our expectations. They were very polite, clean and provided quality craftsmanship. Many thanks GCS Glass. Best regards, Jim & Susan M.
