It is important to get the job done right when you start a bathroom remodel. You may end up having to redo the entire project, which can be costly and time-consuming. It can be difficult to find the right design and hire the right professionals. It is important to be aware of what not to do when remodeling a bathroom.
STAY AWAY FROM YOUR BATHROOM REMODELING
Setting a Budget that is Accurate Most contractors who specialize in bathroom remodeling believe it is important to set a budget. To avoid running out of money, make sure to not underestimate your expenses. To cover unexpected expenses, it is recommended that you reserve an additional 10%-15% of your total remodelling budget.
- Do Not Consider Basic Functionality
It’s easy to get distracted by the latest accessories and designer bathroom products, only to find that you don’t have enough space to store them all. Before you decide on what accessories to put in your bathroom, make sure to measure the space available. You can list all the items and their locations to get a better idea of the space after renovation.
- Bathroom Fixtures to be Moved
You may be interested in moving the bathroom fixtures around if cost savings are important to you. It is best to maintain the existing placement unless you have to relocate the sink, tub, or toilet to another location.
- Storage Space is not being considered
You can determine the space you have available to store a vanity, wall unit, free-standing cabinet, or closet. Make sure you have enough space to store essentials like toiletries, towels and cosmetics.
- Use mismatched fixtures
When choosing bathroom fixtures, it is important to avoid mixing more than two types metals, tiles, and wood. It is important to remember that sophistication can be achieved by using classic materials in a way that complements the design of the room. You should not put safety, accessibility and functionality above the comfort and ease of use.
- Inadequate Ventilation
If you don’t have one, a fan or small window to vent the bathroom is essential. Ventilation helps reduce humidity in the air and lowers the chance of moisture-related problems in the future.
- Poor lighting and drainage spots
When remodeling their bathroom, homeowners often overlook lighting and drainage. Place your bathtub or shower near the drain and make sure you have the right lighting fixtures.
