Not Having a Proper Remodeling Plan

This would be the biggest mistake that you would ever do. Not having an adequate bathroom renovation plan can cause multiple problems in the middle of the renovation. Some of the issues that you will encounter are the lack of budget, low-level designs, and poor-quality bathroom appliances.

When having a bathroom renovation, every detail, even the smallest one, should be appropriately deliberated by you to the contractor. Every demolition should not begin without a proper replacement plan. From the ceiling to the floor, having a well-planned renovation is key to a better bathroom.

Neglecting to Add Enough Storage

Having a minimalistic bathroom design is not a wrong choice. Many bathrooms have a simple yet elegant look. The problem is that some people are willing to compromise storage spaces to achieve this look.

There are ways of having a great bathroom with enough amount of storage spaces for towels, toiletries, and other bathroom stuff. Having much space indeed adds aesthetics, but keep in mind that if you don’t have enough storage spaces, most items would be lying around the bathroom, which breaks the essence of minimalism.

Making The Toilet the First Thing a Person Sees

A typical layout mistake that many contractors commit has the toilet the first thing seen in the bathroom. This reduces the classiness of the bathroom. If you have a small bathroom space, you can put the toilet at the place farthest from the door.

If you have a bigger bathroom space, having a separate room for the toilet is not always a bad option. There are ways where you can visually reduce the presence of your toilet, like having bathroom ornaments.

Refraining from having a Proper Ventilation Plan

Proper ventilation is essential in bathroom planning because this is where the air goes in and out. The bubbling of ceiling paint can be caused by condensation of water from the shower. Volatile organic compounds are also rampant in bathrooms.

When planning for a new bathroom, always ask your contractor about ways of having proper air circulation. There are high HVAC systems that could blend with the bathroom design that you want.

Ignoring The Project Timeline

Your contractor will give you an estimation of the total time that the project will take. However, you should always consider that there could be problems found in your home that will make the project longer.

The opposite side of this is when the project takes way to slow to finish even if there are no problems, and all that needs to be done is to remodel the bathroom according to the plan.


One of the best ways to avoid these disastrous outcomes when it comes to bathroom renovations is having a great, reliable contractor that tells you the right things to do during the remodeling.
