Bathroom renovation can be perceived as simple; replace the sink and change the tiles. Please if this what you think about bathroom renovations, banish that thought now!
There is more to a bathroom renovation than meets the eye. Meqasa is here to help you renovate your bathroom by avoiding these common mistakes.
No plan: Do not start bathroom renovations without having a plan. The bathroom is the room that needs to meticulously arranged. There are too many nicks in a bathroom to leave things to chance and whim. Every aspect of the bathroom needs to be incorporated into the redesign.
Too many design elements: Avoid crowding the bathroom. Maximise the space you have. Ask yourself if you need two sinks? Is the bathroom big enough to have a bath or should you have a shower? There can only be one “star” in your bathroom. Not all your elements can be “stars”. That will make the space even more chaotic. The bathroom is naturally a chaotic space, your design should be able to mute the chaos.
Storage: Storage is very essential. You need to think about the space to store your toiletries and towels. The thing with storage is that we think only of what we have we forget about guests. If you are the sort to have guests and they will share the bathroom with you, have storage space available. If not, your bathroom will look chaotic with things scattered on the counter and floor.
Porous Material: The bathroom is a moist, wet room. Invest in surfaces that are impervious to moisture. If not your surfaces will swell and discolour over time. If you use wood in any part of your bathroom, be sure to have a protective seal over it.
Being Trendy: Yes, we all like to stay on trend. The thing you need to keep in mind is that trends change. Designing a trendy bathroom means you need to be ready to renovate again in about a year or two. Our advice, stick to elegant and classic designs; it will ensure your bathroom has a broad appeal that lasts.
