Bathrooms are one of the most popular spaces to remodel, but it’s easy to make mistakes if you have never had bathroom remodeling done before. Luckily, our team at Smith & Company Custom Homes & Remodeling knows what things are important for you to know before you begin your project.
Here are four bathroom remodeling tips we think everyone should know:
- Prioritize ventilation. Moisture and a lack of sufficient ventilation means mold and mildew are going to thrive in your bathroom, leaving the room with a musty smell and poor air quality. To prevent mold and mildew growth, have a few solutions to ventilate the space. You might be surprised what a difference a window and an exhaust fan can make.
- If you like the current layout, keep it. Sometimes, the layout of your bathroom needs to be changed, perhaps to expand it or to make it more accessible. However, if you don’t have a problem with its current layout, there’s no reason to change it. Keeping the current layout will keep costs down significantly, especially since the plumbing won’t need to be rearranged.
- Invest in durable materials. The idea of bathroom remodeling on a budget may be appealing, but choosing cheap materials isn’t the smartest move. Bathrooms need durable materials because the moisture can wear down materials quickly if they aren’t high quality.
- Keep lighting in mind. Too often, bathrooms have poor lighting, and that makes them gloomy places to shower or get ready every day. Adding a window or ambient lighting fixtures will make your bathroom more aesthetically pleasing and make your daily routine more enjoyable.
