Bathroom Remodel Design Mistakes

Bathroom models are popular amongst homeowners due to the opportunity to increase the value of the home, in addition to creating a private sanctuary for yourself. Bathrooms should feel relaxing and calming, invoking a stress-free feeling once you walk through the door.

The design experts at Center Island Contracting know all too well that common bathroom remodel mistakes can leave homeowners unhappy with their renovation as time goes by. Below are bathroom remodel design mistakes to avoid when undergoing a bathroom renovation project.

Not Enough Storage

Adequate storage is needed in a functional bathroom, which goes for master bathrooms, guest bathrooms and powder rooms. There should be enough space for towels, toiletries, linens and personal items. Closets, cabinets and vanities should have enough drawer space for your storage needs.

No Ventilation

Although it can’t be seen, ventilation is an important part of any bathroom. Bathrooms can retain moisture with showers and faucets running, so the air needs to circulate with proper ventilation. Ventilation has to be planned ahead of time because electrical updates might need to be made.

Poor Layout

Your newly renovated bathroom needs to properly flow. Foot traffic space between your shower, vanity and toilet should all blend together nicely to create a functional layout. The layout should be one of the first conversations about your remodel, because it will impact materials and design finishes.


Lighting is an important part of any room, especially a bathroom. Natural light paired with overhead lights should be incorporated into your bathroom remodel design. A dim-lighted bathroom won’t do any favors when getting ready for the day. Windows, in addition to skylights are perfect to allow natural light into the bathroom.
