Is a bathroom remodel on your to-do list for 2017? There are lots of common mistakes homeowners make that leave them with regret once the project is finished. So, before you get to work on that outdated room, check out these top tips from the ones who dedicate most of their time to decorating and reconstructing:
Looking to spend less time scrubbing and more time enjoying? If you want easy-care flooring your best bet is either porcelain or glazed tiles. Skip right over porous natural stone options because they’re more likely to absorb drips and spills and can easily stain over time.
Working With Tight Quarters
Do you know how much space you actually need for a toilet and a sink? In theory, you can place them into an 11-square-foot space and meet the rules and regulations put forth by national building codes. However, you’ll likely feel cramped and uncomfortable so we recommend an area of at least 3 to 4 feet wide by 6 to 10 feet long.
Get Rid Of Clutter
Do you have shampoo bottles and soap dispensers thrown about the shower or tub in your current bathroom? Please, do yourself a favor and think about recessed cubbies or in-shower shelving options for the new space.
Cheapest Isn’t Always Best
Especially when it comes to the toilet. We highly recommend spending a few more dollars on higher quality materials. Not only will the toilet last longer, you’ll deal with less headaches throughout its lifespan.
