There is no question, when it comes to Connecticut home improvement projects, one of the first rooms people look to remodel is the bathroom. There is a wide range of advantages to updating your bathroom, whether you are staying in your home for the long term or looking to sell in the near future. If it's storage, efficiency, appearance or a healthy increase in-home value, remodeling your bathroom provides an endless array of benefits for you, your family and your guests.
However, we have seen our fair share of bathroom renovation missteps. We see bathroom remodeling mistakes all the time, and unfortunately, a majority of them were quite easy to prevent!
Continue reading to see four of the most frequent bathroom remodeling mistakes.
Ignoring Your Fan/Ventilation System
Overlooking your bathroom fan/ventilation system is a common mistake. Sometimes homeowners do not install one or they do not clean the one they have. Without proper ventilation, humidity will build up on surfaces, and over time this moisture can cause paint and grout to deteriorate.
Think back to the days when you could walk into any bathroom in a suburban neighborhood and see wood paneled walls with strange green colored sinks and toilets with fur covers. Although this scene depicts popular bathroom trends of the 1970s, most homeowners would be horrified to have a bathroom like that today. Unfortunately, many CT homeowners design their bathroom with the latest trend in mind, so a few years pass by and they find themselves regretting it as soon as the next trend comes along. You can't go wrong with neutral colors for a fresh and clean appearance that will stand the test of time.
Attempting To DIY
We can admit it: DIY projects are both fun and challenging, helping to boost a homeowner's self esteem. However, when it comes to remodeling a CT bathroom, it is best to hire a professional. If you are not sure of how to do a specific task while remodeling and you accidentally make a mistake, it can drain your wallet.
Using Cheap Products For Remodeling
The fourth and final bathroom-remodeling mistake that is often made is when the wrong type of products are purchased in order to save money. For example, there are certain types of paints that hold up better in the bathroom than other types of paints. This is because of the moisture that is often experienced in this room. Just as there are certain types of paints that are more appropriate than others, there are certain types of wall and floor materials that are more appropriate to use in a bathroom than other rooms. It is important to take a little time and research what products are best suited for this room prior to purchasing them.
