Completely remodeling a bathroom can be very exciting. However, this type of project also tends to be expensive, so the last thing that you want is for the final results to be lacking-- you should be completely satisfied with a bathroom remodel. If you have never had a bathroom remodeled before, some aspects of the project may feel overwhelming.Try to stay focused and look at the big picture so you don't make errors that can affect the final outcome of your remodel. Some common mistakes to avoid when remodeling your bathroom include:

Neglecting to Think About Scale

As you begin to plan your bathroom remodel, it is a good idea to get inspirations from websites and magazines, and you may also want to visit a bathroom design center.However,it is important to remember that you may see things that you love, but they just won't work in your bathroom space. Don't make the mistake of purchasing a vanity that is too tall or too long. Likewise, you will need to think about the size of the bathtub and shower that you have installed. If you don't pay attention to scale and the amount of space that you have in your bathroom, the room will end up looking cramped when the remodel is completed.

Lacking Storage

When remodeling a bathroom, you may be focused on the aesthetics of how the room will look.But, it is essential to also think about function. If you're spending a large amount of money to remodel your bathroom, you want to make sure that it is highly usable on a day to day basis.One way to achieve this is by incorporating storage solutions into the bathroom.Having ample storage in your bathroom will make it much easier to keep everything totally organized and clean.

Failure to Establish a Budget

Unless you have an unlimited amount of money in the bank,you need to establish a budget for your bathroom remodel before you begin the project. The amount of money you can afford to spend will be a major factor when choosing the layout of the bathroom and what materials to purchase. In addition to having a budget, you need to break the budget down and create a line by line budget that accounts for all expenses.Having a clear budget in advance will help ensure that you don't run out of funds before the bathroom is completely finished-- no one wants to drag out a bathroom remodel for months due to poor financial planning.

Construction Needs in Times of Disaster

I live in the middle of the desert, so I never thought that flooding would be a problem. However, a few months ago my town was hit with a huge storm. These freak storms are called "Hundred Year Storm" because the chances of them happening are once in a hundred years. Needless to say, no one was prepared for the aftermath--especially not the city sewage system. All this extra water had no where to go, and suddenly, I found my basement flooded. It wasn't a fun experience, but we dealt with it the best we could. Since then, I have spent a lot of time looking into different options for sewage, water lines, and other related things. We're now even looking into building a new house. This blog is the result of my ongoing research.
