Your bathrooms are some of the hardest-working rooms in your home. It’s the room where you get ready for a new day and where you relax and refresh your mind, body, and spirit with a soak in the tub or a long, hot shower. One of the biggest bathroom design challenges for bathrooms is combining function and form. It’s important to have a place for everything you need to get ready and cabinets that look great to create a perfect backdrop while you’re getting ready to face the day.

Time for a Bathroom Update
If you’re thinking of updating your bathroom, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Chances are the extent of your bathroom remodeling will be directly informed by your budget and the amount of time and disruption you’re willing to take on.
Completely remodeling your bathroom means removing and replacing the existing bathroom fixtures, tiles, and flooring. If you’re looking for less commitment in terms of budget and bathroom upheaval, simply updating your outdated bathroom cabinets can go a long way in transforming your bathroom.
Here are a few reasons to consider replacing your bathroom cabinets:
1. Cabinet Damage
Bathroom cabinets may not see the kind of heavy usage that kitchen cabinets are put through, but they still see plenty of action over the years. What begins as a few minor dings can end up becoming a busted or cracked cabinet door. If your cabinets have visible damage, replacing them is an easy decision.
2. Less than Ideal Layout
Bathroom storage can be a challenge when space is at a premium. That’s why cabinet arrangement and layout is so important. Maybe you don’t have enough storage space for all of your toiletries and bathroom appliances or you don’t find your bathroom cabinet layout functional. New bathroom cabinet installation is a perfect time to rearrange your bathroom.
3. Unpleasant Odors
Sometimes, older bathroom cabinets can pick up an unpleasant odor that doesn’t go away with any amount of cleaning and scrubbing. There are a number of reasons for this, but the most common is related to plumbing problems that lead to mildew or mold proliferation. Getting rid of the musty smell and starting fresh with a new bathroom cabinet can be more than just a cosmetic decision. It can also help to remove any potential health threats to your family or household.
4. Cheap Cabinets
Some housing additions seem to go up almost overnight. Unfortunately, many of these seemingly pop-up affordable housing additions contain poorly constructed or cheap cabinets manufactured with flimsy composite material. Not only do these cabinets look cheap, but they aren’t durable enough to last through decades of use. Installing new updated cabinets will add new life to your bathroom while adding value to your home at the same time.
5. Outdated Cabinets
Even if your cabinets are in great shape, there are some looks that just can’t be updated with any amount of paint or refacing. Removing your outdated bathroom cabinets and replacing them with a more modern design can completely change the look and feel of your bathroom.
6. The Cabinets Don't Work Properly
If your cabinets are in proper working order, they should be able to open and close easily without force and be flush with the framing. However, if you're finding the doors are more challenging to open, crooked, or simply not functioning correctly, this is an indicator that it may be time for a replacement.
7. You are Considering Selling Your Home
You want to get as much money as possible for your home, so if you are planning to selling and dealing with outdated cabinets, revamping them could offer you a high return on investment. Older cabinets, could result in a lower offer, or the buyer may consider a completely different house, so consider a replacement as a way to get the most value out of your home.
8. Your Family or Layout Is Expanding
Another area that's often overlooked for renovations or remodels is if your family size is growing. Whether this involves bringing a new family member in or an older relative living with you, in most cases, you will need an upgrade.
Additionally, if you're doing any major renovations to the bathroom and making it a larger space, you may need to invest in a replacement to accommodate for new plumbing or structural changes. In either situation, a remodel or replacementcan create a more functional space, add value to your home, and keep you and your family more comfortable.
