Bathroom remodeling can be a lot of fun when you get it right, but the biggest danger is that you can end up spending way too much money on a project that turns out to be a total disaster. Avoid these common bathroom remodeling mistakes that are sure to drive up your projected budget, delay the timeline, and lead to added maintenance later down the line. For instance, if you decide that you need to move the toilet a couple of feet to the right, and then install the new one, the new project will definitely be more costly than if you’ve located it correctly the first time around
Many people make the mistake of installing too many different types of bathroom fixtures. Think about it this way: you don’t buy a car, you don’t remodel it all at once, so why do you remodel everything at once? Move yourself forward by only adding fixtures that will truly benefit the room. If you already have the fixtures in place, then consider adding a showerhead or two, a trash bin, and maybe a window.
And the last thing you want to avoid with your bathroom remodeling project is running out of room for repairs after the remodel is complete. Bathroom remodels can take anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks, depending on how complex the remodel is. Keep in mind that most bathrooms are not small spaces, so don’t feel like you need to overspend just because of the small space you have to work with.
