Here at The Bath Shop, we know all there is to know about bathroom renovations. The bathroom is arguably the most functional room in the house, and getting it right is essential to your future comfort and convenience. While this might seem simple on the surface, a bathroom renovation carries a lot of potential for mistakes. In this article, our team at The Bath Shop will go over some of the most common bathroom renovation mistakes that we’ve seen and provide tips on how to avoid them.
- No Plan- One of the biggest mistakes someone can make during a bathroom renovation is to go in without a plan. For other rooms in the house, it might be possible to make changes piece by piece, but this approach will not work with your bathroom. There are so many elements to account for—the plumbing, the wiring, and the layout, to name a few—that you will need to have a cohesive design from the start.
- Too Many Elements- Another common mistake in planning a bathroom renovation is trying to incorporate too many design elements. The bathroom is a small space, and trying to include too much will not only confuse things from an aesthetic standpoint but also reduce its functionality. To avoid overdoing it, pick one feature to be the focal point—for example, a freestanding tub, a glass shower, or a nice vanity.
- Forgetting About Storage- In addition to the basics like toilet, shower, and sink, a bathroom also needs storage to be functional. You store a lot of stuff in the bathroom, such as toiletries, towels, styling tools, and even medicine. All of this stuff needs somewhere to go, or else you’ll end up with all your counter space being taken up by clutter. This is true of all your home’s bathrooms, including those for guests—your guests will have their own bath stuff and will need somewhere to put it.
We hope that these tips help you plan your perfect bathroom renovation. If you would like further assistance, call our team at The Bath Shop to consult with one of our experts.
