Having a comfortable, spa-like bathroom is something that many of us yearn for, especially after a hard day at work or a long and exhausting workout. Whether your bathroom is drab and dated or beige and boring, a great bathroom renovation can not only give you the spa you want, but the resale value you might be looking for in potential future buyers as well. Before you dive nose-first into the bathroom renovations sea of tile and paint samples, let’s look at a few design choices that you should avoid during a bathroom renovation.
- Jetted Tubs- While soaking in your own personal whirlpool sounds wonderful, many future buyers might be turned off to your entire bathroom if your tub has jets. These jets circulate water, and therefore can grow mold, mildew and other gunk which then, you guessed it, goes right into your next bath. Stick to a beautiful, freestanding tub instead if you want a nice soak.
- Busy Designs- Your bathroom, especially the master bathroom, should be calming and soothing. This is not the place to try out lots of wild tiles or colors. Instead, pick one element, like a patterned floor tile or show-stopper tub, and match the rest of the design elements to it in more neutral tones.
- Lack of Storage- While people love the look of open shelving and floating cabinetry in bathrooms, if you have no place to store towels or extra toilet paper, your bathroom renovation will be a frustrating conclusion. Always add storage options into your bathroom renovation designs!
