Here at Express Affordable Flooring, we want to help you make your home the best it can be, and that includes the bathroom. We have extensive experience with bathroom remodeling, and we have seen our fair share of mistakes with this process over the years. In this article, we’ll go over three common bathroom remodeling mistakes and how you can avoid them.
- Poor Layout- One common mistake that we see when it comes to bathroom remodeling is using a badly designed layout for the new space. The layout of your bathroom makes a big difference to how functional it is, so it’s important to get this step right. One example of a layout mistake that we have seen many times is placing the toilet directly in line with the door—you do not want that to be the first thing people see when they walk in. Instead, make sure the toilet is around a corner or behind something.
- Insufficient Planning- The layout mistake is just one example of a failure to plan ahead. In fact, many of the mistakes people make in their bathroom remodeling efforts are the result of a lack of planning. To get the best results from your remodeling project, take the time to thoroughly think through what you want for your new space, as well as how much you are prepared to spend to bring your vision to life.
- Improper Ventilation- A third mistake that we have seen in bathroom remodeling projects is failing to include proper ventilation. The heat and steam for your shower, as well as potential leaks from the sink or toilet, all create a very moist environment that is perfect for mold growth. You need effective ventilation in this space to suck out the excess moisture and prevent mold from setting in, so make sure to include ventilation in your design plans.
