4 Rookie Bathroom-Remodeling Mistakes And How To Avoid Them

A bathroom remodel is one of the most challenging projects you can take on for your home, but if done right, the rewards can be amazing. Rookie remodelers often run into the same issues when they start their projects, and when not handled correctly, these can lead to delays, extra costs and a disappointing result. To avoid these mistakes, it is important to establish a budget before the work starts, create a list of what you'll be replacing or repairing, work out the square footage you'll need, add in the cost of subcontractors and tools, and add in a buffer of 10% to the budget to pay for any unexpected costs. Additionally, avoid going with poor-quality work and finishes. Remodeling is not about cutting corners, and there is no room for poor finishes or unsafe practices.

When remodeling a bathroom, it is important to invest in trained and certified waterproofing contractors and buy the best finishes to make it look and feel luxurious. Invest in smart storage to give you a home for everything you need to store, and incorporate different-size drawers in your vanity to accommodate items of various shapes and sizes. Houzz is the best place to find professionals to kickstart a project. Bathroom design is popular, with two-tone cabinets playing up a warm copper hood. Porches are also popular, with 3 screened-in porches for indoor-outdoor living.
