Here at Precision Decorating, we want to help you make every part of your home the best it can be, and that includes the bathroom. After all, the bathroom serves an essential purpose, so it only makes sense to make sure that it fulfills that purpose well, and that it fits your personal taste. Our team has extensive experience in bathroom remodeling, both as designers and as contractors, and we have seen our fair share of mistakes. In this article, we’ll go over three of the most common bathroom remodeling mistakes and share how you can avoid them.
- Insufficient Planning- The first mistake most people make in bathroom renovations is starting the process without a clear plan. Although you don’t need to know every single detail of how you want the finished project to look, you should take the time to work out the most important features, such as the water fixtures, storage, layout, etc. During this stage, you should also take precise measurements of the space to ensure that everything will fit correctly down the road.
- Neglecting Ventilation- Another common mistake people make when it comes to bathroom remodeling is forgetting to include proper ventilation. The hot water in your shower generates a lot of steam and humidity, and that moisture needs somewhere to go. Without a correctly sized bathroom fan to suck that moisture away, your bathroom will be a ripe breeding ground for mold, so make sure to include this essential feature.
- Using the Wrong Materials- Lastly, you shouldn’t choose just any materials. Remember that your bathroom is a humid environment that is prone to abrupt shifts in temperature, which is likely to have a negative impact on any materials not specifically designed to withstand that stress. Wood, for instance, is prone to warping under these conditions. Fortunately, our team has the right expertise to help you choose the best materials to keep your new bathroom looking its best for years to come.
