Here at The Bath Shop, we have worked on countless bathroom renovations. In many cases, clients hired us to help correct mistakes from previous renovation efforts. Bathroom renovation is a complex process, and there are many moving pieces to keep track of, so it’s not surprising that mistakes occur. However, we want to help you avoid that situation, so we have put together a list of some of the most common bathroom renovation mistakes and how to avoid them.
- Poor Ventilation- One of the most common mistakes we see in bathroom renovation work is not including adequate ventilation. Your shower generates a lot of warm, moist air, which makes the bathroom an ideal environment for mold to grow. To avoid mold problems, you need to make sure that you have a ventilation system that can suck up all that moisture and push it outside.
- Bad Layout- Another common mistake in bathroom renovations is choosing the wrong layout for the space. Specifically, there are often issues with the placement of the toilet, which can include being too close to the wall for proper plumbing or being placed in the direct line of sight from the door.
- Insufficient Lighting- A third mistake we see a lot in bathroom renovations is not including enough lighting. The bathroom is the place where you do your grooming, so it’s important to be able to see what you’re doing. In addition, a lack of lighting can make the whole space feel dingy and gray, so you should also include plenty of light in order to keep things cheerful.
