Luxury Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Bathroom remodeling can be a big undertaking with many puzzle pieces. If you miss a piece of the puzzle, you run the risk of your project not going smoothly. Down the line you might end up exceeding your budget with unexpected expenses for things like parts and repairs.

Before starting a bathroom remodeling project, consult with a trusted and licensed contractor. Your goal is to avoid these common mistakes:

1. Budget – 
Properly budgeting for a bathroom remodeling project is one of the most important aspects of a successful renovation. It is important to consider all aspects of the project before beginning. You want to avoid going over budget and finding yourself cutting corners mid-project to make up for added expenses, like expensive fixtures or added features. Shop around for materials and ideas ahead of time. This will allow you to comfortably allocate funds for the materials you really want. Leaving a cushion in your budget for any unforeseen complications is also a smart idea.


2. Energy Efficiency – Remodeling projects provide a good opportunity to replace old items with those that are more environmentally-friendly. While eco-friendly things like motion sensor faucets, dual-flush toilets, LED lighting and low-flow shower heads tend to be a bit more expensive on the front end, they can save you money over the long term.

3. Materials
 – Materials can make or break a bathroom remodeling project. Cheap components can break down easily. Opt for quality, durable materials to avoid repairs and replacements in the short-term. This applies to flooring, lighting, fixtures and appliances. Speaking with a bathroom designer will ensure that you get the best product for your budget.

4. Ventilation
 – Replacing the vent fan in your bathroom will reduce moisture. Excess humidity in your bathroom can rust metal and encourage the growth of mold and mildew. Choose a vent fan that will deliver the appropriate amount of airflow.

5. Storage
 – Ideally, you will want storage options for essentials, including towels and toiletries. Consider incorporating storage space for cleaning products as well, so it will be easy to keep your new bathroom looking its best!
