Whether you have decided to customise your home to make it more comfortable or you'd like to sell your house, bathroom renovations are one of the best bets. No matter your budget, everything needs to be done to perfection and to suit your style. Here is how you'll ensure your renovation project goes smoothly to not only increase your home's value but also boost its aesthetic appeal.
Mistakes you should avoid
Having an unrealistic budget
Before starting a bathroom renovation project, ensure you know how much you'll spend. This helps you focus on the key sections you want to change. Perhaps you want to install a new bathtub, change the tiles or even decorate the bathroom. Regardless of your plan, the budget should help you attain your goals. Items such as premium tiles made of either porcelain, marble or slate and a new tub can eat up the funds quickly. If you must get them, search for reliable suppliers who can offer discounted rates. This way, you'll save as much as you can and complete the renovation successfully.
Also, consider other desirable bathroom features that will not cost a lot, such as extra storage. Install a deeper medicine cabinet, adjustable shelves and storage shelves above your toilet. If you currently own a pedestal sink, add a contemporary-style dressing table to get more storage space and still transform the room's style.
Making changes that contrast with your home's style
Although you may desire the simplicity of a themed bathroom or the rustic appearance of a log cabin, find out if whatever you wish to have will match the style of your entire home. Instead of improving the appearance of your home, rooms that stand out unambiguously may be a turn-off to a potential buyer. You might think that you have created an exceptional lodge-like look, but all they will see is a beautiful modern house that has a strange bathroom cabin.
Not leaving multifaceted tasks to the professionals
Even if you are outstanding in DIY projects, the last thing you want to do is renovate your bathroom all by yourself; you might not know the tricks to doing a professional-looking job. In addition, you'll end up spending more time than a professional would and find yourself paying extra. For instance, if your bathroom requires new tiles, it will not be easy to install them by yourself, which means you might end up with less-than-professional-looking results. Even if you have the equipment and materials, you may end up spending much more time than you anticipated. An experienced contractor, on the other hand, will complete the job impeccably in less time and do a better job.
