Are you considering a bathroom renovation? Remodeling your bathroom can be both exciting and daunting. From selecting tiles to choosing the right fixtures, there are a number of decisions to make along the way. However, in the midst of the excitement, it’s important not to overlook common mistakes that can disrupt your renovation plans. At W.E. Davies + Sons Remodeling, we strive for smooth, obstacle free renovations, which is why we’ve put together this guide highlighting some of the most common bathroom renovation mistakes and how to avoid them during your project.

Mistake 1: Underestimating the Importance of a Detailed Plan

Jumping into a bathroom renovation without a solid plan is a surefire way to end up with a space you don’t like. The key to a smooth remodel is all in the planning. From imagining your dream bathroom to figuring out every step to get there, a detailed plan is essential. Our 5-step plan is designed to create a detailed plan for your renovation, laying out everything from start to finish. By taking the time to plan with our team of estimators, draftspeople, and subcontractors, you avoid the headaches of hasty decisions and set yourself up for success.

Mistake 2: Overlooking the Value of Professional Input

Although the idea of DIY-ing your bathroom may sound exciting and fun, it often comes with significant risks and frustrations. Many homeowners overlook the crucial role of experienced contractors and designers in a successful renovation. The professionals here at W.E. Davies + Sons Remodeling bring the knowledge and expertise required for a remodeling project, from making sure your space is structurally sound to offering design tips that blend beauty with function.

Mistake 3: Ignoring the Need for Adequate Ventilation

A critical yet often neglected element of a bathroom renovation is proper ventilation. It’s not just about making the space comfortable; good ventilation is essential for maintaining your home’s overall health. Without it, moisture can build up, creating an ideal environment for mold and mildew, which can deteriorate air quality and damage bathroom surfaces. To avoid these issues, make sure your design includes effective ventilation options like exhaust fans or windows. Our designers always include proper ventilation in the plans for bathroom remodels, so our clients never have to worry about their spaces having poor ventilation.

Mistake 4: Misjudging the Budget

Tackling the financial side of a bathroom renovation takes a good mix of planning and discipline. One common mistake is underestimating how much the whole project will actually cost. This often leads to changes mid-project, throwing off your original plans. To avoid this, make sure you have a good understanding of your current financial situation and how much you are able to spend on your project. As part of our process, our estimators will work closely with you to ensure that the plans for your renovation align with your budgetary constraints.  

Renovating a bathroom, especially if you attempt to do it by yourself, is a complex task that requires careful attention to detail and thorough planning. Because of this, it can be easy to make mistakes, such as going over budget or forgetting to add an exhaust fan for ventilation. With W.E. Davies + Sons Remodeling, you won’t have to stress about the mistakes. Our team of professionals knows how to avoid both the common and not-so-common mistakes during remodeling projects. When you choose W.E. Davies + Sons Remodeling, you can rest assured that your bathroom renovation is in good hands.
