4 Common Bathroom Renovation Regrets

Friday, November 25, 2022 , Posted by Bradhaw Plumbing

No homeowner wants to look back on a bathroom renovation project with regret. This is why it’s so important for you to put the time and effort into making the best decisions during the planning phase of the project. As they say, failure to plan is planning to fail. At Bradshaw Plumbing, the last thing we want to see is people who have some regrets. So, we’ve put together the following list of potential bathroom renovation regrets and cautions.

Cutting corners

One of the most common regrets homeowners have is not going all out on their renovation project. After the project is complete, they often regret not splurging on the specific features they want. For example, choosing the vanity you like rather than spending a little extra on a vanity you love. Sometimes it is worth holding off just a little bit to ensure you have the budget to create the exact bathroom you want rather than settling.

Not making storage a priority

Storage space is a premium in bathrooms. Often people don’t realize just how much storage they need until the project is complete and they run out of room to store their towels, toiletries, and other bathroom items. Always make storage a priority when planning out your project so you don’t regret not including more in your design.

Overlooking durability

We all want our bathrooms to look amazing. And they will once the renovation is complete. But what about a few years from now once the bathroom has been used and lived in. Yes, it’s important to choose modern and trendy items to create the look you want, but don’t do it at the cost of durability. The last thing you want is your vanity, floor, or other elements of your bathroom to break down prematurely.

Not adding enough lighting

The lighting in your bathroom is an especially important element, but many people commonly overlook its importance during a renovation. Your lighting needs will vary based on the size of the space, number and size of windows and other factors. Choose fixtures and lighting solutions so there are no dark spots in your bathroom, and you have a bright space.

There is nothing attractive about a bathroom that you regret. While the above considerations may not be sexy, there are the smaller details that can have a massive impact on the look and functionality of your newly renovated bathroom.
