5 mistakes in bathroom remodeling

  1. Hiring the wrong contractor – It is important to use someone who does quality work.  Many people go with the cheapest quote without realizing that inferior materials or shoddy workmanship is why they are getting such a good price.
  2. Going in without a plan – Make a strategy that considers exact measurements, expected cost, all supplies, and your particular preferences. Having these details laid out will help you save time and money in the process.
  3. Having an unrealistic budget – Discuss the budget honestly. If you’re working with a tight budget, limit your spending to what you can sustain. If you overspend, you’ll have to make compromises someplace else, and the results won’t be good. Because unexpected expenses sometimes happen, we recommend allocating an extra 15 to 20 percent of your budget to cover them.  If you come in under budget you will be happy, but if you go over, you will regret the job.
  4. Ignoring small details – Even seemingly insignificant flaws like a small gap in the bathroom vanity or a flaw in a fresh tile installation will eventually become eyesores. Always correct errors, even the smallest ones, as your remodeling progresses.  Don’t convince yourself to ignore poor workmanship; if you catch it now, you’ll see it every time you use the room.
  5. Using inferior materials – High moisture levels and sudden temperature variations are only two of the stresses that bathrooms must endure. To avoid water from harming surfaces, choose bathroom-specific materials. When you’re spending a lot of money on a room renovation, it’s important to know that your wood vanity will last the test of time and that your wallpaper will withstand high humidity. Additionally, purchasing inexpensive fixtures may seem like a solution to save money, but they may end up costing more to repair.
