Nothing is worse than a medicine cabinet that is so packed that things fall out each time you open the door or lighting that doesn’t allow you to check makeup. If you’re planning on a bathroom redo, here are some things to avoid:
Neglecting Storage - Explore recessed wall cabinets and shower shelves. When purchasing a vanity, make sure there is plenty of storage for hair dryers and toiletries, and plenty of counter space.
Overlooking Lighting - People often forget they need multiple lighting sources and install wall sconces on each side of a vanity. Try to incorporate both decorative and task lighting.
Choosing Slippery Tiles - Using cool decorative tiles that are not made for getting wet is a mistake; they are easy to slip on and can lead to injuries. Make sure your tiles are designed for bathroom floors.
Not Planning Electrical Components - Planning outlets needs to be done very early in the process.
Not Using an Appropriate Fan - We have all walked into a bathroom where the ventilation fan sounds like a plane taking off. For a few dollars more, purchase a quiet alternative.
A well-organized bathroom can be truly life changing.
