The bathroom is one of the most important spaces in any home when it comes to keeping you and your family comfortable and healthy. However, if your bathroom is cramped, outdated, or just drab, it can also be a source of frustration. Our team at The Gallery of Stone has extensive experience with bathroom remodeling, and we want to help you make your bathroom the best it can be. To do this, we have put together this article on some of the most common bathroom remodeling mistakes and how you can avoid them.
- Failing to Plan Layout. Just like in the kitchen, the layout of a bathroom is key to its functionality. Make sure that you have a clear plan for where all the fixtures and storage will go in your new bathroom before you begin installing anything, as neglecting to plan ahead is likely to leave you with no room for foot traffic or storage.
- Insufficient Storage. Speaking of storage, another common mistake when it comes to bathroom remodeling is not including enough of it in the new design. You need enough room to store your towels, grooming products, medicines, etc., and this need only increases when you factor in how many people will be using the space. Our team will make sure to discuss your storage needs and include enough room to keep these essential items organized and easy to access.
- Improper Ventilation. A third serious mistake in bathroom remodeling is not including proper ventilation in the design. Warm, humid environments like the bathroom make an excellent breeding ground for mold, so it’s important to make sure that the steam from your shower can be vented out of the room in order to prevent mold from setting in.
