5 Myths About Bathroom Remodeling-shutterstock_243627643-300x200A bathroom remodel is the perfect opportunity to create a relaxing, functional space in one of the most important rooms in the home. By following smart tips and avoiding these myths, you can ensure that your remodeling project goes off without a hitch. Here are 5 common myths about bathroom remodeling that you need to know before you get started:

1) You have to have a big budget

While a bathroom remodel can get very expensive, you do not need to have a big budget in order to achieve the final result you desire. Set your budget first, and then look for ways to save while getting the features that you want.

2) You have to make your bathroom bigger

Another myth is the idea that you have to expand the size of the bathroom in order for it to be worthwhile. This is not true because, with the right layout and design, you can make even a small bathroom feel spacious and comfortable.

3) Your remodel needs to add luxury

Not every home requires a luxury bathroom. Simply aim to create the bathroom design that you desire, without worrying about making it high end. You want a remodel that makes your space functional and stylish for years to come.

4) You have to separate the tub and the shower

Not every home is suited to having a bathroom with a separate tub and shower. You may not have the space, the money, or even the interest in separating these features. Work with the space that you have if you don’t want to expand, and design a combination shower and tub that meets your needs.

5) It isn’t worth the investment

The bathroom and the kitchen are two of best rooms in the home to invest your money and time. Set your budget for a bathroom remodel and focus on achieving the design that you truly want. It will pay off in the long run.
