Avoid these Mistakes when Remodeling Your Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the busiest and most used rooms in any home.

The bathroom is one of the busiest and most used rooms in any home, so it makes sense that among American households it remains the most popular choice when it comes to remodeling. Though, when getting ready to remodel your bathroom, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re prepared with the best information, so you know exactly what you want and can avoid making a mistake that you’ll have to fix down the road. Today, we will look at some of these common pit falls and how to avoid them during the remodeling of your bathroom.

Common Mistakes

Most bathroom activities require great lighting, and natural lighting can make all the difference to your space. Dark, damp, enclosed bathrooms are never appealing, and they can also feel unhealthy. Windows are the best option for bathroom lighting, as they can be used for fresh air, daylight, and ventilation. If it’s not possible to install a window, a skylight that can be opened can be a good solution. For internal bathrooms on the ground level that don’t have access to the roof, a solar tube skylight plus a ventilation fan can be the best solution. Drainage is the most important part of your bathroom, and if not fitted efficiently can lead to an excess of mold and mildew. Making sure your bathroom drains correctly rely on proper bathroom design and construction is vital to its running simply.

Spend Your Money Wisely

When it comes to bathroom remodeling, functionality beats out design trends. Some things are worth spending the money on, even if no one will notice them. For example, don’t skimp on adhesives and caulking. A bathroom membrane system, which is placed under tiles to prevent them from cracking or popping, is often money well spent, as it prevents water from seeping into the substructure. Energy-efficient windows are almost always worth it. If you’ve got the extra room in your budget, spring for a cosmetic update like a fancy new faucet or a clawfoot bathtub, as long as the essential remodels have been done!
