The BIGGEST Mistakes to Avoid When Remodeling A Bathroom


Home Love Construction is a luxury renovation contractor and custom home builder in the Tampa Bay area. In this video, Brad shares the common mistakes that homeowners make during bathroom remodels.


The biggest mistake that Brad sees people make is reusing materials. The idea that you can save money by doing so is incorrect, as the cost of the labor is the most expensive part of a bathroom remodel. The exception to this rule is if you have a hardwood vanity in perfect condition, but it would still make more sense to buy a new vanity.


Another mistake Brad sees is using the same toilet. While this might seem like a cost-saving measure, a new toilet is only around $250 to $300 and worth the investment for a $20,000 to $30,000 bathroom remodel.


Homeowners also make the mistake of sacrificing function for cost. Brad suggests going all out and replacing everything at once for the best results, and not sacrificing features that add a lot to the bathroom, such as a recessed niche in the shower. Spending a little bit more to get what you want in the end will make you much happier with the results.


Finally, Brad sees people getting out of proportion with their budget, sacrificing what they really want in their bathroom remodel for a couple of hundred dollars. Home Love Construction offers custom bathroom designs to help homeowners get exactly what they want, and Brad pushes homeowners to spend just a little bit more to get the results they want.


In conclusion, when considering a bathroom remodel, it is important to think about the end result, and not to sacrifice features or materials for the sake of cost. Investing in a new vanity, toilet, and shower niche, for example, can make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your bathroom. And, as Brad suggests, going all out and investing a little bit more to get exactly what you want will make you much happier in the end.
