The Dont’s of Bathroom Remodeling
Remodeling a bathroom can be a big undertaking. Depending on how much work there is to be done, what kind of materials are being used, and the positioning of the bathroom and the rest of the house, remodelling can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
However intricate or long the process may be, you want to come out having a brand new beautiful bathroom, no matter the budget or time constraints. Thats why we’ve put together this list of major DON’TS for remodeling bathrooms.
Here are the don’ts of bathroom remodeling:
1. Don’t forget about the budget
Your budget is one of the most important things to keep in mind when remodelling anything, not just your bathroom. Set a certain amount aside that you know you can spend on the project, and give yourself a little cushion room to account for any problems that arise along the way.
2. Don’t rush the process
Make sure you have an estimation on how long the entire project will take. Depending on how much remodelling is being done, you might not have a bathroom to use for weeks, so its important to understand beforehand that it will take time for the bathroom to come out exactly how you want it and not to rush or be stressed about time.
3. Don’t go without storage
One thing that is often overlooked in bathroom remodels is adding storage. Having a small cabinet under the bathroom sink usually isn’t enough, and having some extra space to store towels, cleaning supplies, or extra toiletries can be really useful, especially in homes with big families or lots of guests that regularly come over.
4. Don’t forget to think ahead
A bathroom remodel isn’t something that you update every few years. Its a costly process and beneficial if done with quality materials and made to last. Thats why its important to think ahead for the future.
Don’t remodel your bathroom around some current trend that will lose appeal in the years to come. Also think about making the shower and toilet have easier access, such as walk in showers and grabbing bars, to make it easier for children and the elderly if you know they are going to be in the picture in a few years.
Are you planning to move around the sink or toilet? Most people don’t consider how plumbing issues can affect their bathroom remodeling. You should contact a licensed plumber who specializes in drain repair, drain cleaning, and basement waterproofing.
5. Avoid Clutter
Try and incorporate any bathroom appliances or toiletries you use into the planning of the remodelling. This helps if more counter space is required or more storage for appliances that you might want to buy. Think about who uses the bathroom on a regular basis and ask for their input.
Maybe one sink is enough and can save you a lot of space for toothbrushes, soaps, and other necessary household items you want in your bathroom. Deciding on this during the planning process will prevent any regrets after your bathroom is finished, and keep everything looking well placed and organized.
With these few tips, you can make sure that your bathroom transformation goes according to plan, and that you have a beautiful new room in your house exactly how you imagined it.
