5 Signs it’s Time for a New Bathroom

5 Signs it’s Time for a New Bathroom

Your bathroom is usually the first room you’ll go in to when waking up in the morning, and the last you’ll use before heading to bed. It should be a room that’s pleasant and relaxing to spend time in.

So, if your bathroom is not living up to standards, it may be time to consider a new one. Can’t decide if you need a new bathroom? Read on for some common signs you should invest in a new bathroom now.

1. It Feels Outdated

Does your bathroom feel like you’re stepping back in time? If the answer is yes, then it’s time for a change.

Fashion and styles change over the years. While your avocado or salmon pink suite may have been the height of fashion when you had it fitted, it certainly isn’t anymore. To help bring your bathroom back into this century, consider nothing but a clean, white suite.

The same can be said for wall tiling, or dated fixtures and fittings. An overhaul can do wonders for the space. So, take a critical look at the features of your bathroom and whether they are in need of modernising.

2. Excessive Dirt or Wear and Tear

The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in a house, so it’s bound to pick up some wear and tear. But there will come a point where it can’t take anymore and something needs to be done about it.

Did the previous owners leave the bathroom with mould and dirt that can’t be shifted? Do you have leaks or moisture damage? Or maybe a relentless and questionable odour throughout the room? If any of these are the case, then get it ripped out and fit a new bathroom!

Excessive dirt or wear and tear such as this is not only unsightly and unpleasant, but can prove hazardous to your health, making it doubly important to get it dealt with.

3. Your Circumstances Have Changed

This is perhaps one of the most common reasons for refurbishing a bathroom. If personal circumstances change, then the bathroom may need to be altered to suit.

For example, a family with a new baby may require more space or more child-friendly features within the bathroom. Or an elderly homeowner with reduced mobility may need a bathroom that’s more accessible and safer to use for their circumstances, such as the addition of a walk-in shower or bath.

4. You’re Planning on Selling Your Home

If you’re planning on putting your home up for sale, it’s important to start looking at it as if you’re a potential buyer. Would your bathroom look appealing to someone on a house viewing? If not, then consider how it can be updated to improve chances of a sale.

A new bathroom can add significant value to the sale price of your home, so it’s well worth the time and effort refurbishing it. Read our blog post for advice on making your bathroom more sale-friendly.

5. Poor Functionality

Aesthetics in a bathroom are important of course, but most important is the functionality of the space. If you find that design decisions from the previous homeowner offer poor functionality to you when using your bathroom, then consider changing things up.

For example, the toilet may have been positioned too close to the basin, or you don’t have enough space to get in and out of the shower. Instead of just putting up with these things, think about remodelling the bathroom to suit your needs.


These are just a few things to weigh up if you’re deciding whether now is the time to fit a new bathroom or not. Replace Your Bathroom can help you with any bathroom adjustments or remodelling no matter how big or small the job. Feel free to get in touch and see what we can do for you.
