The amount of money you spend in remodeling should not be put to waste. Make sure you get the best bang for your buck by not making the following mistakes:

Forgetting about ventilation
Be sure to work efficient fan and exhaust systems into your bathroom plan. “This is key to a successful renovation because if the room is not properly ventilated it creates an ideal environment for mildew and mold,” says Binns. Source: HGTV

Lack of balance
You must be thoughtful in choosing a pleasing combination of tile colors, patterns, and shapes along with your plumbing choices. If you’re timid at all about this process, use bold choices sparingly, go slow, and think balance. When it comes to choosing sinks, toilets, tubs, and faucets, don’t shy away from the more interesting selections, but counteract their intense nature with more-calming pieces. Source: MyDomaine

Skimping on storage
Even if you’ve purged your toiletries and towels in a bid for a streamlined ‘new you’, storage should still be a priority in your bathroom. You’re sure to acquire more lotions and potions over time, particularly if you have a growing family.

A mix of open and closed storage works wonders, as this elegant space demonstrates. You can shut away ugly bathroom necessities and leave pretty toiletries and fluffy, fresh towels on display for all to admire. Source: Houzz

Inadequate lighting
That blemish on your face is actually a toast crumb. The reason you’re confused is that the lighting in your bathroom is so terrible you can’t tell the difference between a chocolate dribble and a freckle. If you think muted lighting will make your yellowing teeth or receding hairline less noticeable (to you anyway), get a grip on yourself.

Poor lighting conditions in a bathroom can be dangerous. Don’t take an unexpected tumble because you prefer candlelight to the harsh light of a fluorescent fixture. Install bathroom-rated lights over your sink and near your tub or shower. It’ll save your guests the inconvenience of having to carry a flashlight around with them. Source: Home.HowStuffWorks
