Are you thinking about remodeling your bathroom? If so, that’s a home update that will add value, style, and functionality to your Tampa home—IF the shower replacement, tub installation, or other remodel is done right.

The professional bathroom remodelers from Luxury Bath of Tampa Bay have spent decades helping homeowners enjoy the beautifully renovated bathrooms they want. Along the way, we’ve learned some of the common mistakes people make when completing a bathroom. We share some of them below as well as tips to avoid them.

Paying Too Much—Or Too Little

The cost of a bathroom renovation varies based on the size of the space and the types of updates you’re making. While it’s tempting to give the job to the lowest bidder, that can be a costly mistake. Instead of searching only for rock-bottom prices, find shower and bathtub installation professionals with a proven reputation AND competitive prices. There is no reason to overpay. It’s much better to find a bathroom remodeling company that offers a mix of quality and value.

DIY Bathroom Updates

Do you want to paint the bathroom, install a new mirror, or hang some cabinets? Those projects may be good as DIY home improvement projects. Completing a bathtub or shower installation, or transforming the space with a tub-to-shower conversion is a different story. Unless you’re a skilled remodeler, these updates are best left to the pros.

Style Matters—But It’s Not the Only Thing That Matters

Functionality is just as important as style in a bathroom, so choose updates that will not only look great, but that will also meet the needs of your family. Whether you need a tub where you can bathe the kids or a roll-in shower that provides a safer experience for older homeowners, start with functionality and then find stylish options that meet your needs.

Try to Avoid a Long Renovation

Maybe a bathroom remodel that takes weeks is OK with you, but it’s not ideal for many homeowners—especially those with only one bathroom. One easy way to avoid a long bathroom renovation is by focusing on the wet areas. Tub replacements, shower replacements, bath conversions, and wall surrounds are updates that transform your bathroom in as little as one day.
