Draining Issues

Faulty installation, choosing fixtures that don’t match the drain size and inaccurate design plans can create draining issues, which is the last possible problem homeowners want in their new bathroom. Make sure to consult with one of our bathroom remodeling experts to avoid draining complications.


There’s a lot of moisture in the air in bathrooms due to running water. Showers, baths and sink faucets can create moisture, and without proper ventilation there’s no where for the moisture to go. If there’s wallpaper on your bathroom walls, proper ventilation is especially important because the wallpaper can start to peel.

Cluttering the Space

Another common bathroom remodeling space is cramming too much into a small space. Cluttering the space with too many design elements will overwhelm the space and make it not functional. Choose vanities, sinks and tubs wisely, considering their size as it relates to the overall size of the room.

Incorrect Layout

The wrong bathroom layout can impact the functionality of the room. It can be expensive to change the existing layout of a bathroom, so it’s best to speak with an experienced contractor to figure out which layout will work the best for your bathroom remodeling needs.

Not Consulting the Experts

Failing to consult with bathroom remodeling contractors can result in a new bathroom that you’re unhappy with. Bathroom design and installation can be tricky, and it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
