Choosing the Wrong Shower Door

 When it comes to choosing the right shower door, you have a few options depending on the space you have in your bathroom. While swinging glass doors look great, they aren’t always the most practical especially if your space is limited. Because most swinging doors must be installed to open outward, you’ll want to make sure that there’s plenty of room for clearance around other fixtures, furniture, or doorways. Of course one easy solution is to choose a glass sliding door instead to maximize your space!

Using Paint That Doesn’t Stand Up to Moisture

 For some homeowners, the bathroom serves as a type of sanctuary. It’s a space that allows you a brief escape, and the color of paint in your bathroom can play an important part of that peaceful retreat. All bathrooms get wet however, so choosing a paint that can stand up to moisture and humidity is critical. Without using the proper paint, you may be inviting mold into your home so it’s worth the extra time and effort to research paints that are specifically designed for bathroom interiors.

Leaving Too Many Grout Lines to Clean

 Incorporating tile in the bathroom is a natural fit, as it brings style and texture to any space. One aspect that many homeowners forget is that with tile comes all that grout that needs to be cleaned. Before you know it, grime and mildew can accumulate, so you’ll want to make sure to choose the right location and tile sizes for your cleaning habits. Minimizing those grout lines is easy, if you follow these tips:

  • Use larger tiles in your shower to minimize the number of grout lines.
  • Seal and protect the grout to ensure it doesn’t get moldy.
  • Utilize seamless glass instead to cut down on grout lines.
