Though rewarding, completing a bathroom remodel in your home can be a stressful and lengthy process. Even with all of the necessary requirements in place. This is why making some very common and critical mistakes can add tons of pressure surrounding your remodel. Today we will look over some of these mistakes to try and ensure that you are able to steer clear of them during your bathroom remodel.
- Not Doing Enough Research Before Selecting Your Contractor
Choosing a contractor to oversee your remodel is a huge decision that you have to make. It is crucial to have someone that is responsible and experienced. Hiring someone who is unreliable or lacks knowledge of the business will be detrimental to your remodel. You always want to verify a contractors license number as well as reading any reviews that have been left by their previous clients. It is also very important to meet with them one on one so that you can decide if you feel comfortable with this person and their crew having access to your home. Never leave your home in the care of a contractor that you do not completely trust.
- Not Utilizing Enough Natural Light
Natural light is the most flattering for emphasizing the beauty of a home. Too much artificial light can look cheap and washed out, no matter how great your remodel looks. Try asking your contractor about installing large windows or a skylight to help you stage your new bathroom in the best way possible. Not to mention, natural lighting is recommended when getting ready for the day. It helps avoid any harsh makeup lines or stains that you may not be able to spot in artificial light.
- Clashing Materials
When remodeling, playing with different textures and materials can be a fun experience. However, it is easy to pick materials that clash with one another rather than compliment each other and not notice until the job is complete. Be sure to discuss different material options with your contractor. Their experience will allow them to help point you in the right direction.
- Not Properly Planning Your Spacing
Spacing is everything with any kind of home remodel. You always want to make sure that no matter how small the space, it looks as big as it possibly can. It is very important for you and your contractor to create a layout that is functional and allows you to maximize the space that you are working with. Also try to create as much storage space as you can, decorating them with custom cabinets.
