5 Most Common Bathroom Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Lack of storage space, poor planning, and overspending are some of the most common mistakes in the bathroom, new research has found.
"Mistakes can happen, especially when it comes to a major home renovation project like a new bathroom," says Jordan Chance, PlumbNation's bathroom specialist.
"Preparation is an important factor when it comes to the planning stages of any project."
Remodeling a bathroom is not an easy task, but there are many ways around these bathroom pitfalls to save time, money, and disappointment. Do you want to know what mistakes to avoid? Take a look below...
1. Putting the water drain in the wrong place
'This is a beginner's mistake, especially when it comes to DIY mistakes in the bathroom. It usually happens when the water drain pipe is not aligned with the pipe drain, which can lead to unpleasant odors, ”explains PlumbNation.
"To avoid this, make sure you measure your bathtub and shower correctly before purchasing and installing it."
It may sound simple, but there is nothing worse than a leak in your new bathroom.
2. Insufficient ventilation
An exhaust fan is a brilliant way to avoid insufficient ventilation and is often overlooked when it comes to a new bathroom design.
In addition to removing steam from the environment, it will help prevent mold, mildew, and deterioration of furniture due to humidity. Don't forget to take this into account to make sure your space stays cool.
3. Forgetting to think about privacy
Bathroom windows need a lot of work, letting in natural light and protecting the privacy of those insides. Window treatments, such as curtains and covers, are some of the best ways to keep nosy neighbors out.
If finances allow, put windows higher (so no one can look) or opt for a tunnel-light ceiling.
4. Lack of storage space
Stay tidy in your bathroom with storage boxes, baskets, and shelves. Creative hackers in small spaces will increase bathroom storage, helping you keep toiletries, makeup, cleaning bottles, and bedding organized.
When planning a redesign, make sure you have considered storage areas that are unsuitable and suitable for your purpose.
5. Not talking to experts
“When planning a new bathroom, it's always important to speak with some experts, whether it's to discuss certain features and products, delivery times, or logistics,” explains PlumbNation.
"Being prepared for every step of your new bathroom installation is a great way to help avoid any mistakes that may be made."
