5 Common Bathroom Renovation Mistakes

Don’t think of bathrooms as an afterthought, it’s a space you’ll use on a daily basis!

Here, we’ve taken a look at the most common mistakes home-owners make when renovating their bathrooms, so you can avoid making the same mistakes!

A decent ventilation system in your bathroom is absolutely essential to avoid a build-up of moisture. It’s a good idea to invest in a fan with a timer switch & run the fan up to 15 minutes after you’ve gotten out of the shower. This helps to reduce condensation & will prevent your ceiling from bubbling. A High quality vent is still a good idea even if you do have a window.

Renovation professionals recommend to mix no more than two types of metals, woods or tiles. A good bathroom flow comes from the repetition of materials, which is especially important in these smaller spaces.

Measure all the walls to make sure the space is square before rebuilding within it. Making sure that your bathtub is square with the doorway, will go a long way to make sure that your tiles are not crooked with the tub, doorway or both.

Make sure you spec your drain to the inch so that the your drain hole measures up exactly with the existing plumbing drain in the floor. Check placement before purchase, as drains can be placed to left side, right side or center, & planning this before can be a live-saver when it comes to renovating your bathroom!

In a space like this, practicality sometimes has to come before aesthetics. The towel rail might look better on the opposite side of the bathroom to the shower, but it’s not as practical. Designing a floor plan can really help with figuring out where each major item will fit within the room. This also helps in figuring out if you can avoid moving any pipes or drains around.
