5 Common Bathroom Remodeling Mistakes
Whether you’re a DIYer or you’ve hired a professional, mistakes can happen when remodeling your bathroom. Creating a new bathroom space is not only a highly designed endeavor but an exciting one, and you want to get it right the first time.
Without proper planning, this can cost you time and money fixing errors, so to help your project run more smoothly, Redebu Builders has a list of mistakes to avoid during your bathroom remodel.
1. Not Having a Clear Budget
Going over your budget can happen quickly, and it is recommended to thoroughly research costs before starting. In most cases, price points on items like vanities, fixtures, and lighting can vary by material and brand, and unforeseen expenses may arise. So have a well-thought-out plan, a detailed understanding of your budget before starting the project, and budget a little wiggle room, just in case.
2. Forgetting Storage & Function
One of the main reasons people remodel their bathrooms is to help create more storage space and efficiency. Including linen closets, built-in shelving, vanities, and custom niches in the design can help reduce clutter and improve the use of the space. Trying to go too streamlined and not incorporating storage will harm your remodel.
3. Disregarding the Size of the Space
You might have several fittings and fixtures that can help you create your dream bathroom, but you need to ensure you have the room's appropriate size accounted for in your calculations. Without this, you could try to fit too much into the space and reduce the room's efficiency. So, be aware of any unique dimensions and pick features that are appropriately sized for the area.
4. Neglecting Ventilation Needs
It can be exciting to focus on the details of the room, like vanities and lighting, but you don't want to overlook the need for proper ventilation. This detail is crucial because of the moisture levels that occur. Without adequate ventilation, this can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew buildup, so be sure to include essential details like exhaust fans and windows.
5. Overlooking Proper Lighting
Your lighting will also need to be considered, and you want to choose both soft and bright lights to help accommodate your space needs. Whether your day-to-day functions include soaking in a tub or applying makeup, consider adding in sconces by the vanity or recessed lighting with dimmer switches to ensure that your lighting is appropriate for your needs.
