Bathroom Remodeling: A Home Improvement Project that Always Pays Off

### Mistakes the Handyman Should Avoid

marking a holeIt has been made clear by many studies that bathroom remodeling projects are the ones that pay off the most at resale. But this doesn’t mean you can invest a fortune in your home improvement project and then expect to get your money back. There are a few things you need to consider, and even more important, some mistakes to avoid. Follow our guidelines and you won’t need an expensive bathroom remodeling service provider. A reputable handyman will do just fine.


One of the most important things to keep in mind when remodeling your bathroom is lighting. Most old bathrooms are equipped with a single lighting fixture over the mirror, which you know it’s not enough. Now it’s the time to fix this issue. Have your handyman install an overhead fixture or, why not, recessed lights on the ceiling or walls.

Little Things.

Besides being aesthetically appealing, a bathroom also needs to be useful. One thing that most old bathrooms are missing is enough outlets. Nowadays, we have electric razors, straightening irons, hair dryers, and many other gadgets for bathrooms, and they all use electricity. So, the second most important thing to do is install properly placed outlets. Have a reliable handyman do this as working with electricity is highly dangerous.

Neutral Decor.

Many homeowners make the mistake of investing huge amounts of money in bathroom remodeling projects – money that will never be recovered. You have to think neutral in terms of design and stay away from those bright yellow or avocado green fixtures, Jacuzzi tubs and pink tiles. If you want to get your money back for this home improvement, make sure you create a simple, elegant and efficient bathroom. Choose classic fixtures in white or off-white, and neutral color tiles. If you really want a trendy look, you can still achieve it with drawer pulls, towel bars, etc. – things that are easy for the next owner to remove if they don’t like them.
