Leave no room for mistakes during your bathroom remodeling projects. You must take steps to do things right – and avoid serious issues.
Check local building codes. Find out if you need to secure permits for your bathroom remodel. Generally, contractors can handle this aspect for you, but it also helps if you’re aware of the rules.
Choose the right surfaces for your bathroom. Apart from considering how a particular material can boost the appeal of your bathroom, you should also make sure it’s capable of handling plenty of moisture. It should also be able to resist bacteria, odors and staining.
Make sure there’s adequate storage. Having enough storage for your toiletries, towels and other bathroom essentials can help you keep your bathroom clutter-free.
Don’t move fixtures unless it’s necessary. Relocating your plumbing fixtures, for instance, can be costly. And, often the challenge of moving your plumbing isn’t worth the additional expense. Try to make the most out of the space you have. Surely, bathroom remodeling contractors can offer you solutions that are more practical and less expensive.
Don’t get carried away with trends. What’s trendy isn’t always what you need. Make sure your choices are based on functionality as well.
Don’t forget about bathroom ventilation. Poorly ventilated spaces can easily turn into breeding grounds for mold and mildew.
For do’s and don’ts that are specific to your bathroom, don’t hesitate to consult professionals. While there are general rules that you can follow to ensure a successful bath remodel, there may be a few things that you should watch out for depending on the current condition of your bathroom.
