While it may not seem like a colossal project, bathroom remodeling is not an easy task. Many things need to be planned to ensure the success of the renovation. Whether you want to increase the space and functionality or enhance your bathroom’s aesthetics, it is vital that you take the time to plan your remodel to ensure you don’t make any mistakes.
As remodeling contractors, we see many common mistakes every day. Here are some of the most common mistakes you want to avoid during bathroom remodeling:
- Not Deciding on the Overall Look – If you are remodeling your bathroom to improve its appearance and aesthetic, it is a good idea to pick a theme and stick to it. Homeowners often have too many ideas for the look and design, so their bathroom looks confused. Choosing one theme or design will ensure a cohesive look at the end.
- Forgetting to Add Storage Space –You need to keep lots of things in your bathroom, from towels to hygiene products. We recommend always considering storage during your planning phase to ensure adequate shelves, cupboards, and drawers for all your belongings.
- Choosing the Wrong Materials –When picking countertops and floor tiles, you need to select things that can withstand moisture and a lot of use.
- Not Enough Lighting –Another common mistake with bathroom remodeling is not adding enough lighting. If your bathroom doesn’t have a window, you will want to ensure enough lighting and the right kind of lighting. You may wish to have overhead lighting and some extra lighting above the vanity.
