Huge Bathroom Mistakes People Make When Planning a Renovation

5 August 2021

Everyone makes mistakes, after all, that’s human nature. That being said, when it comes to your bathroom renovation, small mistakes can end up having huge consequences. Picking the wrong fixture or even the wrong layout can’t easily be changed without a huge amount of effort. For this reason, you need to take your time when making these kinds of decisions. Take a look below to find out more.

Not Planning Storage

Storage is just one of those things that might be hard to forget about, but at the end of the day, it’s easy to underestimate. When you have worked so hard on the overall design of your bathroom, it can be disheartening to find that it soon becomes cluttered with oils, lotions, toiletries and more. This is especially the case if you would much rather go with a much more minimalistic look. When it comes to storage, it’s always a good idea for you to go slightly overboard if possible. This gives you plenty of space if you have visitors who are staying with you. Of course, minimising clutter helps you to reduce the amount of visual noise in your bathroom as well, keeping it both tranquil and clean.

Overlooking Lighting

Lighting is very influential when it comes to your bathroom. It’s influential in how it looks as well as how it feels. If you have lighting too harsh then it may feel uncomfortable and if you have it too dim then you may find that it’s difficult to see what you are doing. For this reason alone, it’s a good idea for you to plan the lighting out from the start of your project. If you are working with a budget, then remember that you can get creative with more budget solutions. This can include candles that are placed strategically.

Choosing Products that are Not Compatible

This one can be a total nightmare. There is nothing worse than having your heart set on a fixture, only to find that it’s just not compatible with the water system you have. In the best-case scenario, you may be able to find replacements, but you will lose out on a lot of time and money as a result. Having some pipe and tube cutting tools will help you a lot when it comes to your plumbing, and it gives you the chance to really make your bathroom work for you. You may also find that you can divert the water lines to a different part of your bathroom as well, making it easier to get the layout you want.

Neglecting the Mirror

Your bathroom mirror comes with obvious, practical value. You can use it to create light too. This could involve bouncing light around a small bathroom to make it feel bigger too. When you are picking out your mirror, you need to make sure that everyone in your home can use it comfortably. People often make the mistake of choosing a large, high-hanging mirror when they have small children, which of course, makes it difficult for them to see. Take into account the needs of your family, if and when you can.
