5 Big Bathroom Remodeling Mistakes to Avoid

Master Bath 5

Remodeling your bathroom or adding a new bathroom to your home is one of the most invigorating endeavors that you can undertake in your home. This is a chance for you to use your imagination in a way that you never have before—to create your dream bathroom. If that sounds like a lot of overwhelming responsibility, do not worry. Kitchen Solvers professionals are available to help you through every step of the bathroom remodeling process. Having a service team by your side will ensure that you complete a design that is a good fit for your lifestyle. Planning a new bathroom may seem simple, but there are a lot of elements that go into it.

When finished correctly, a great bathroom can make your life easier and add value to your home. If a remodeling project goes wrong, the opposite can happen. Here are 5 big bathroom remodeling mistakes that you should be sure to avoid.

 1. No Bathroom Windows

Okay, sometimes this is simply unavoidable, but when planning the location of a bathroom, always be sure to incorporate a window. Dreary, damp bathrooms that are completely dark are no fun. Also, poor circulation can lead to problems in the space. If you do not have a window in your bathroom, consider building a new skylight to let in the natural sunshine and a bit of fresh air. This will really liven up the space and add value to your home.

2. Too Much Publicity

There are places in your home that you should avoid building a bathroom. For instance, you should not put your bathroom right off the dining room where all of your guests can clearly see inside. If you are remodeling a bathroom that is in a poor location, consider creating some type of formal separation that keeps your restroom space private and out of the public eye.

3. Showcasing the Porcelain Throne

You might spend most of your bathroom time on the toilet, but this element should not be what draws your eye when you walk into the room. Try to put the toilet in a place where it is not the first thing you see when you walk in, and avoid any lines that showcase the porcelain throne. If you have the option, putting your toilet and shower in a separate area, away from the sink, is a wonderful design idea.

4. A Bathroom That Does Not Age with You

That giant, deep tub might seem like a great idea while you are young and able bodied, but it will not serve you well as you age and find it harder to step over the edge. These are things that you should consider when designing your bathroom remodeling plan. Curbless showers are very much in style. These can save you money—as well as effort as you age.

5. Designing for Another Size

Whether you have a big or a small bathroom, be sure to design for the size. Any size can be made into a functional, beautiful space that serves you well for many years, or it can be a disaster.
