Mistakes to Avoid When Remodeling Your Bathroom

The Plumbing Authority Heating & Cooling

Remodeling your bathroom can be an exciting time, but it can also be relatively stressful. Check out this blog post for some mistake to always avoid, and the remodeling process should be a breeze.

No Ventilation

Exhaust fans are crucial in rooms that have a lot of moisture in them, making them absolutely necessary in bathrooms. Ideally, you should run the exhaust fan while the shower is running and then at least 15 minutes when you get out of the shower. This will reduce condensation and keep the paint in the room from bubbling.

Mismatched Fixtures

While you might like the bronze faucet and the chrome faucet, this is not the time to employ the “one of each” philosophy. Pick one metal and one style and stick with it in that space.

On the topic of fixtures, go with the classic over the trendy. Remember the baby pink or avocado green toilets from the 60s? Don’t make that mistake again. Especially since a toilet can last you almost 30 years, so make sure you pick one that you’ll be happy with for a long time.


One of the worst mistakes you can make in a bathroom is not planning the layout well. If you make a mistake in this step, then you could end up with a door that can’t open all the way because it runs into the toilet. Or a sink and vanity with no outlet nearby.
