Completing a bathroom remodel is a huge way to help boost your home’s value, modernize the space, and make your house feel more like home. While the renovations are nearly always guaranteed to elevate your home, the easiest way for them to go wrong is by taking on too big of project, when you more than likely should have hired a professional. The list of things that could go wrong is lengthily and depends on multiple different factors such as the style of your remodel, the size of the space, the amount of work needed, etc. however, these are a few of the most common things that could go wrong should you choose a more DIY approach.

The Fan

While they aren’t always the most visually appealing feature in your bathroom, they make a huge difference in keeping your bathroom(s) humidity controlled, and in turn, help eliminate the risk of mold growth and mildew. If you’re expanding your bathroom, chances are you’ll need a bigger and better fan, don’t forget to investigate your options.

The Materials

As luxurious as some materials may look, they aren’t meant for bathrooms. Because bathrooms are in high moisture areas, ensuring that you choose the right materials that are able to withstand not only the high moisture levels, but also drastic temperatures are key in eliminating potential mold and mildew, warped cabinetry, flooring, etc.

Ignoring the Small Stuff

Even the smallest mistakes in a bathroom remodel can lead to big consequences. Not caulking around the toilet or tub, leaving a small gap, even if hidden, in the tile flooring, etc. can not only create eyesores later down the line, but can also act as the perfect space for moisture to settle, often leading to black mold that will require a lot more work than simply fixing the small or minor “mistakes” while conducting your bathroom remodel.
