Five Bathroom Remodeling Mistakes

  1. Exhaust Fans

A lot of people overlook this feature. Exhaust fans are important in making sure the bathroom is properly ventilated. Without that, humidity gets trapped in the enclosed space. Over time this causes mold and mildew to grow and paint, grout, and metal to deteriorate.

  1. No plan

Before you rip out the toilet, make sure you know exactly what your plan is. Make sure this plan accounts for precise measurements, projected cost and all the materials.

      3. Improper Spacing

Your bathroom remodel should focus on function as much, if not more than fashion. Function should come first and the decorating should come later. You want to make sure the space, furnishings, and fixture placement allow for comfortable everyday use.

4. Choosing the wrong Materials

Bathrooms go through quick temperature changes and high levels of moisture so you want to make sure you are choosing the proper materials suited for the space. Choosing materials designed for bathrooms will guarantee that your newly renovated space can handle the stress of being a bathroom.

5. Unrealistic Budget

Be honest about your budget. Decide what you can afford and stick to it. If you overspend in one area, you’ll have to cut corners somewhere else and odds are you won’t be happy with the results. However, be mindful that extra costs do arise so be sure to leave yourself a little wiggle room.
