3 common bathroom remodeling mistakes to avoid

If you have never remodeled or renovated a room in your home before, you might be overwhelmed by the entire process in the beginning. While it will certainly be a major undertaking, that does not mean it will be impossible for you to get done. All you need to do is create a clear plan and timeline for when and how you would like to get everything accomplished. When done correctly, a new bathroom can do wonders by not only adding to the aesthetic appeal of your home, but also increasing its overall value.

Here are a few common bathroom remodeling mistakes to avoid:

  • Being trendy: What looks good today very likely will not look great in the future. Instead of going for designs that are currently in style, you should choose a look that is more classic and will hold up against the test of time.
  • Budgeting too little: If you are planning on a massive overhaul of your bathroom, you should be prepared to spend a considerable amount of money. Remodeling Magazine has said that the average cost of a renovated bathroom is around $16,000. When planning everything out, make sure that you set aside enough money to get everything done how you would like.
  • Doing it yourself: You're going to need to be brutally honest about your DIY abilities. This will be a major project, so it's not going to do you any good to try and take it on only to later hire a professional part-way through. Hiring a professional will likely be the smartest way for you to go.
