Tile backsplashes. Double sink vanities. Spacious showers. Sounds like bathroom heaven, right?
Remodeling your bathroom can offer some serious luxury to your daily life. It can also turn into a huge headache if you’re not careful.
The last thing we want is to see your bathroom upgrade become a bathroom disaster. You’re busy. You’re working. You don’t have time for that. Avoid these hazards to ensure your Tucson bathroom remodel goes smoothly.
Failing to Vet Your Remodeler
By far, failing to vet your remodeler is the biggest mistake folks make. It pains me to say, but not all remodelers are created equal. Some aren’t as skilled as others. Some don’t carefully vet their contractors. (Most remodelers don’t do all the work themselves. They contract out the different pieces to specialists.)
And, some remodelers simply aren’t a good fit. You want to make sure the remodeling firm you use has an impeccable record for quality and satisfaction. Read testimonials. View their finished work. This will help you ensure the design team can capture the style you’re going for and quality you deserve.
Not Carefully Considering Customizations
Customizing your bathroom to suit your wants and needs is wonderful. Unfortunately, too much customization can also hurt the resale value of your home. Before you make any seriously unique updates, like a rain shower in the very center of your bathroom, carefully consider how your potential buyers will feel.
Ornate vanities and beautiful wall sconces are nice. But, they don’t offer much in the way of towel and toiletry storage. Your spacious bathroom won’t be so lovely if it becomes a cluttered mess.
Save yourself from wondering where to put your hairbrush and store your extra toilet paper. Make sure to incorporate plenty of storage into your bathroom remodel.
Not Thinking About the Future
Whether you take a bad spill or age is simply making it harder to get around, the bathroom can be one of the hardest places to navigate. Consider if this is a home you plan to be in for a while. If so, it’s a good idea to think about how mobile-friendly the bathroom is. Design features like stepping up and into the shower and tight corners can make it more difficult to get around.
