Renovation / Saturday, March 2nd, 2024

Although a bathroom is only a tiny space, you spend a lot of your pre-sleep, post-waking refreshing and self-care time in this one space. This means the space has an impact on the start and end of your day. With this in mind, when you start a modern bathroom renovation you want to place some importance on it, so you get it right.

One way to do this is to learn about the common pitfalls in bathroom renovations, so read about it below. 

Bathroom Renovation in 2024

You Forgot About the Budget

The very first thing people do is look for inspiration and then they jump right into buying. This can lead to a lot of being over budget unnecessarily. After all, replacing cabinets, sinks, and toilets can add up quickly. Instead, plan out what your maximum budget is and consider what cost-saving factors you can incorporate to bring the costs down a little. 

You Have No Plan

Similar to forgetting to budget, people often forget to plan their bathrooms as well. This can make the bathroom less functional than it started out, so it’s important to know how you plan on using the space and make sure it aligns with your needs. Maybe you don’t need the bathtub anymore, or maybe you can use a dual-purpose tub and shower? By planning, you leave fewer things to chance overall. 

You Forgot Storage

No matter how small your bathroom might be, some storage is needed. This should be a priority during your renovation, so during your planning stage, consider smart storage solutions as well as your personal needs. If you don’t have a lot of personal care items, you can use the bathroom to hold your linens, if you do need extra storage, there are lots of options on the market in 2024.

You Need Ventilation

In the design phase, alongside storage, you should consider ventilation. This is important in all parts of the house, but it’s vital in the bathroom as poor ventilation can lead to issues such as mold which then leads to damage to your walls, and this can all lead to costly renovations again down the line. 

You’re DIY’ing Too Much

Not everything should be DIY’d. Especially during your bathroom renovation. Although it looks simple when you see a video tutorial, plumbing, and electrical things should be left to the experts. This way, you can make sure your bathroom remains safe, and still do some hands-on work here and there. The more you invest in the experts, the longer the results last, which means, fewer things to re-do down the line. 

Too Many Styles 

Many people get carried away with tiling and styling. They choose wallpaper and tiles and a rug, and this can all be a little too much. If your bathroom looks too busy it can feel cluttered even if it’s not cluttered. If you want to make life easier and keep costs down opt for tiles only when needed and wallpaper only if you need it.
