A bathroom remodel can be stressful work, whether you hire a general contractor, or it’s a DIY project. However, when it is done correct and with pride, the payoff can be gigantic. If you’re getting ready to start on a bathroom remodel, you want to do it right. You know you need a budget (and stick to it), have a plan and set a realistic timeline. Here’s a look at some dos and don’ts of a bathroom remodel
Do's & Don'ts of Bathroom Remodels
Do's When Remodeling a Bathroom
Choose the right surfaces for a bathroom.
The surfaces you choose for your bathroom remodel should not only contribute to the overall aesthetic, they should be able to handle plenty of moisture. Porcelain tile is a favorite among bathroom designers when it comes to not only flooring, but walls and bathroom sinks because it resists staining, bacteria and odors, according to Build Direct. A tip: Opt for larger tiles to minimize grout lines and make upkeep easier.
Remember to follow all local building codes and have inspections done.
If your bathroom remodel is a DIY project, you may be tempted to skip the often-pricey permits and inspections. However, this may result in some costly mishaps down the road (faulty wiring that results in a fire or leaking plumbing leaking through your ceiling). If you hire a contractor, they generally handle permits and inspections.
Remember to add storage.
While you may be tempted to cut out storage to go for a larger walk-in shower or a longer vanity, you may regret this decision later. When planning your bathroom remodel, consider where you’ll keep bathroom essentials, linens and first-aid items.
Don't Do When Remodeling a Bathroom
Move fixtures unless you have to.
Moving plumbing during a bathroom remodel may cost you big time. Unless you are dealing with a very challenging or cramped space, try your best not to make changes to your home’s plumbing system as it’s not always worth the extra expense. In some cases you can triple your plumbing costs if you rearrange the layout of the toilet, sink and shower.
Forget about ventilation and lighting.
Make sure the space is properly ventilated as moisture breeds mold and mildew and can take its tool on finishes and surfaces. In addition, you’ll want to ensure your bathroom has plenty of light. Install a ceiling fixture for general light, but depending on the layout of your bathroom, you may want to add sconces near the vanity and task lighting in a shower.
Be too distracted by trends.
When planning your bathroom remodel, think about the long term. While you may be tempted to add a trendy mirror, lighting or tile, don’t go overboard when bringing your bathroom up-to-date, as trends come and go. Opt for practical fixtures that won’t lose their appeal in the next few years.
