The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house, and if you’re going to take on a remodeling project, a new bathroom is a great one. Designing and remodeling a bathroom is a lot of work, however. If you’re not careful, you could easily fall into the trap of making any of these bathroom remodeling mistakes. Read on for the big things you should not do when you remodel your new bathroom.
Rush Right In
The biggest mistake you can make in any remodeling project is to rush in without planning. The whole process is exciting, but if you are failing to plan, you are planning to fail. It’s cliché but it’s true. Slow your roll, and take some time to plan exactly what you need and want. Start with a realistic budget and find ways to make your dreams work within it. Don’t just think about the individual pieces you want, like that mirror you love, but also consider the overall feel of the whole room. If you want a serene spa bathroom, that horror movie inspired shower curtain you love won’t fit.
The opposite of rushing in and changing everything is being afraid to try new things. Just because it works okay how it is, doesn’t mean it can’t be better. Once you have a bathroom that is beautiful, functional, and comfortable, you will be glad you took the plunge. While you’re opening yourself to new ideas, don’t be afraid of trends like colored tile or colored grout to add interest – your bathroom doesn’t have to be white-on-white.
Dream Too Big
Dreaming is a great way to start the process, but eventually you have to reel it in. This usually happens when you’re budgeting, but you also have to be realistic about the size and shape of the room you’re working with. Intricate custom showers are incredibly popular right now, but if you only have enough floor space for a pre-fab shower, you need to be realistic.
Finally, don’t forget that all things are best in moderation. If you have an over-the-top wall tile or a zany flooring design, use simple design in the rest of the space to balance it. If you have the zany floor, wild tile, outrageous shower curtain and more, the room will be nothing but overwhelming.
