5 Bathroom Remodeling Design Mistakes to Be Aware of

Ready to remodel your bathroom? Take a look at these 5 mistakes to be aware of before getting started.

As a bathroom remodeler in the greater Birmingham, AL area, Alabama Baths wants clients to have the best possible outcome for their project. We’ve put together this list of 5 common design mistakes to be aware of when planning your remodel.

Not Planning Adequately

Without adequate planning and research, it’s easy to overlook major aspects of your bathroom remodel project. Taking the time to think through and plan out your remodel will help you avoid unexpected costs or delays further down the line.

Ignoring Universal Design Principles

Universal design principles are helpful for making your bathroom safer, more accessible, and more user-friendly for everyone in your household. When selecting materials, consider elements like non-slip surfaces, grab bars, a shower seat, and other features that will help make your bathroom safe and easily accessible for people of all ages and abilities.

Using Poor Quality Materials

When planning your remodel, you’ll want to choose high-quality materials that will last for years. Choosing quality materials upfront can save you money in the long run as they are less likely to need repairs or replacements over time.

Forgetting About Storage

A functional bathroom should have plenty of storage space for cleaning supplies, toiletries, and other items. Don’t forget to include ample storage options in your design plan that take into account the needs of everyone in your household.

Inadequate Lighting

Good lighting is essential for the functionality and aesthetics of any bathroom. Poorly lit bathrooms can feel cramped or lack ambiance. When planning your remodel, consider ways to brighten up the space with natural light and thoughtfully placed artificial light fixtures.

At Alabama Baths, we are dedicated to helping our clients create their dream bathrooms with top-quality materials and expert craftsmanship. We understand that each project is unique and strive to provide custom solutions tailored to our client’s individual needs.

Our experience them was fantastic. They went above and beyond, patiently talking us through buying the accessories and generously sorting out our screwups. They worked closely with us at every turn, from decisions about design to decisions about implementation. We have gotten many compliments on our bathroom, including from those who didn't see the horrible "before" situation. We have nothing but praise for them. They are incredible!
