Your bathroom is likely the first room you use when you wake up and the last used before bed. It can also be a wonderful place to relax and unwind. It’s an important room in any home. However, if you don’t love your bathroom or it doesn’t suit your needs, a bathroom remodel is the best remedy. As you begin to consider what you want in your new bathroom, be sure to avoid these bathroom blunders that we’ve fixed in homes over the years.
Know Your Budget
A bathroom remodeling budget doesn’t have to be huge, however, no matter the number you settle on, stick to it. Talk to your remodeling company about how realistic your budget is based on what you want. If you’re not going to end up with a space you love with your budget, you may want to consider raising it or cutting back on the scope of the remodel.
Be Realistic With Space
If you’re able to increase your bathroom’s size, go for it. However, if you need to keep the same footprint, have realistic expectations about how a new layout or other change will impact the space you want or need. This is especially true if one of your current reasons for a remodel is more storage space. Make sure that your bathroom remodeling company helps you accomplish your goals.
Choose Quality Materials
Not all cabinetry is designed to withstand the humidity of a bathroom, just like not all tile works well in the shower. Make sure you choose quality materials that will stand up to the water and the use they’ll experience in the bathroom.
Don’t Skimp on Lighting
Many bathrooms built 10 or 20 years ago have only a light above the vanity. A modern bathroom has lighting in multiple locations. In larger master baths, you will find can lighting in the ceiling throughout the space. Lighting can make getting ready easier and add to the style of your new space.
When possible, we always recommend adding natural light, even if that means a small window above the shower. Natural light makes a room feel bigger and, if the window is large enough to open, can provide natural ventilation.
