The part of our house that is most popular for remodeling and renovating is the bathroom. When we fail to consider an expert’s opinion, it often brings about bad results. You’ll want to make sure to stay far away from the following mistakes:
1. Compact Bathroom:
No bathroom is worse than a windowless and shutter-less bathroom. People put so much attention and detail to the interior decoration of their bathroom that they forget to pay attention to the outside. A bathroom must have a large window or a skylight to make it more comfortable and cozy. A dark cramped bathroom is hardly appealing. If your bathroom does not already have a source of natural light, then get one with the help of your contractor.
2. Acting before planning:
Another very common mistake that people end up making is getting their bathroom demolished before they even have something planned. Make a checklist, call a contractor, sit down and plan before bringing out the wrecking balls.
3. Overlooking the Heating and Cooling System:
In places like Calgary where it gets really hot in July and really cold in January, it is key to remember the importance of installing cooling and heating systems in the bathroom. Most people completely forego this integral factor during the renovation and end up sweating or shivering throughout the year.
4. Poor Drainage:
A mistake like a poor drainage system happens because of a bad planning or a poor choice of contractors. A proper and professional installation of the drainage system is essential while renovating the bathroom. The floor of the bathroom must be made in a way that it slopes slightly towards the drainage so that water never gets a chance to collect. A bad drainage system might also increase the chances of someone slipping and falling which could lead to injuries.
5. More concerned about space:
When it comes to bathrooms, size doesn’t matter. It’s the functionality, design and the overall appearance of the bathroom that matters. Most people may try to opt for a bigger and larger bathroom which is wonderful if you already have the extra space in your house. If you don't, there is no need to stress; you can get everything you need in your bathroom with careful planning.
6. Forgetting about storage:
If we are remodeling our bathroom, then why not remodel it in such a way that it has more storage space? It is essential that every bathroom has storage space. A well-designed bathroom would contain vanity drawers, mirrored shaving cabinets, wall shelves or any sort of tailored space for your everything you need in your bathroom.
