A bathroom remodel can sometimes feel stressful because of the many decisions you have to make and the amount of work that needs to be done. Fortunately, you can make it easier for yourself by preparing for this project. You need to keep certain things in mind. In this blog post, Concept Bath Systems, Inc., the top bathroom remodeling expert in the area, discusses some important bathroom remodeling do’s and don’ts.
Don’t Move Your Bathroom Fixtures
Moving plumbing during a bathroom remodel can be very time-consuming, costly and work-intensive. Don’t do it unless you absolutely have to. Rearranging the layout of your toilet, shower or sink is definitely possible but it is only worth it in a few specific cases. Moving fixtures should only be necessary if your bathroom is very cramped or if it’s a very challenging space.
Do Choose Your Bathroom Surfaces Carefully
As a bathroom and kitchen remodeling expert, we recommend choosing your bathroom surfaces carefully. The surfaces you choose should not only contribute to your bathroom’s overall design but it should also be able to handle a lot of moisture. Porcelain tile is generally a good choice because it can resist staining, odors, moisture and bacteria. Consider using large porcelain tiles to minimize grout lines and make bathroom maintenance easier.
Don’t Forget Good Ventilation and Lighting
You need to make sure that your bathroom is properly ventilated because excess moisture can promote mold and mildew growth. You should also install a good lighting system in your bathroom because light can make a room feel brighter, more welcoming and more relaxing. Consider installing a general light, sconces near your vanity and task lighting in your shower.
