When redesigning bathrooms, it’s important to avoid making common mistakes. Many people make the mistake of focusing on the aesthetics of the redesign at the expense of functionality. Others make the mistake of not budgeting enough for the project, resulting in a finished bathroom that is either impractical or doesn’t meet their needs. In this blog post, we will discuss 10 common mistakes to avoid when redesigning your bathroom!
1. Not Measuring The Space
2. Not Having A Clear Budget From The Start
3. Not Taking The Storage Into Account
4. Having Wrong Lighting
5. Forgetting About Ventilation
6. Choosing The Wrong Contractor
7. Not Doing a Mock-Up
8. Not Planning for the Future
9. Not Considering Ergonomics
10. Ignoring Universal Design Principles
11. Not Considering Maintenance
12. Not Considering The Layout
One final mistake to avoid with your bathroom transformation is not considering the layout of the space. Many people choose a design without considering how the space will actually be used. This can lead to problems like an unusable shower or a sink that’s too far from the toilet.
If you want a dressing table, matching sinks, and built-in shelving and glass doors for your showers, you need to have a clear layout in mind. Otherwise, you’ll end up in a crowded space that lacks functionality. Before redesigning your bathroom, think about how you use the space and what layout would work best for your needs.
13. Ignoring Plumbing
14. Over-customizing Your Space
When redesigning your bathroom, it’s important to choose features that will be used often. However, some people go overboard and choose luxurious features that they may not use often or at all. This can lead to wasted money and a cluttered bathroom.
Additionally, over-customizing can make it difficult to redesign the space in the future.
This is especially true if you have a small bathroom floor plan and bathroom walls in close proximity. You can maybe opt for a walk-in shower with interesting wall tiles or floor tiles, but a small space cannot accommodate bigger items like a freestanding bathtub.
Also, if you have limited counter space, you’d do better to optimize your room with elements that won’t crowd your space. As a focal point, try going for some interesting bathroom lighting fixtures. They make a big difference in your bath.
