There are so many things that you need to think about when you are remodeling your bathroom. Those things can range from how many people use the space to how much storage that you need. Answering these questions incorrectly or making a mistake can cause a big headache at the end of the project.
Here are 5 mistakes that you don’t want to make during your bathroom remodel:
Not listening to your contractor.
No, your contractor does not need to plan your entire bathroom, but if we say that something is not going to work well, then you should listen to us. After all, we have done this a few more times than you have. Our ideas might even make your bathroom better than you imagined.
Not changing an awkward layout.
If the layout of your bathroom is awkward, then you will want to make some changes as you are remodeling. There is no point in having a new bathroom if it still doesn’t work well for you and your family.
Choosing cheap materials.
All those cheap materials that you choose now will only need to be replaced within the next year or two. We recommend that you spend a little more money now to avoid spending even more in the future.
Choosing more than one style.
Not too many bathrooms with modern, midcentury, and traditional styles mixed together look nice, so there is very little chance that you can pull off the look in your own home. Instead, we recommend that you choose your favorite and then make your next decisions accordingly.
Forgetting that less is more, with the exception of storage.
Too many light fixtures or too many mirrors can overwhelm your new bathroom. Therefore, it is always best to keep your designs simple. The only time that it is okay to go overboard with something is storage. After all, everyone needs more storage in their bathroom than they originally think.
