Bathroom Remodels? Avoid These 3 Common Mistakes

Bathroom remodels are a great way to increase the presentation and value of your home. Bathroom trends have changed drastically over the years, from opulent chromes to bright colors to the current trend of airy, clean, and light. When remodeling your bathroom, it’s important to recognize that your bathroom contains complicated plumbing, tiling, and storage components, — making it easy to snarl and delay it as a DIY project.

Here at ULFBUILT, we are a skilled bathroom remodeling contractor, here to ensure your bathroom renovation ends up looking beautiful and functional. If you opt not to work with general contractors on your renovation, you’re more likely to make the following three mistakes.

  1. Overspending

    Above all, you need to be realistic about your budget and make smart financial decisions. If you don’t keep your spending in check, a minor renovation could easily turn into a huge money pit. A smart renovation will have an excellent ROI, but if you spend too much on minor components, you won’t be adding any value to your property. Create a budget and stick to it as closely as you can. Spend the money on features that will add functional value, rather than aesthetic quality. For example, 91% of survey participants said they plan to install water efficient toilets. While that’s a smart move, splurging on those custom features may not be. And unless you’re working with experienced remodeling contractors, try to stick with your original bathroom remodeling plan to cut costs.

  2. Poor Lighting

    When designing your new bathroom, give careful consideration to your typical routine. On the average day, you’ll might bathe, shave, groom, style your hair, or put on makeup. All of those activities require excellent lighting. If your remodeled bathroom is too dark or has poor lighting placement, your usual routine might be ineffective and frustrating. Consider placing your lighting in multiple sources, like this lighted bathroom mirror. Excellent lighting can make or break how you feel about your bathroom.

  3. Overcrowding

    Bathrooms tend to be on the small side already, and by having too much in your bathroom, it’s only going to feel smaller.  How can you recreate the space in your bathroom in a clever and attractive way? We are experienced with getting creative with storage options and bathroom design. For example, floating sinks and floating toilets makes the floor area larger and increases the feeling of an open and spacious bathroom. Our bathroom general contractors can help you come up with ideas to maximize your small space.
