The Most Common Bathroom Remodeling Mistake [Don't do this!]

Aside from the bathroom remodel mistakes of not planning ahead, adding unnecessary luxuries and keeping up with the trends--one of the most costly mistakes home remodelers make is completely gutting the wall tiles of their bathrooms.


The most targeted victim is of course, those pink tiled bathrooms every new homeowner can't wait to rip out of their mid-century home.

Not only is this expensive, it also removes the character and history of a beautiful vintage bathroom. According to the Save the Pink Bathrooms Movement (learn more here), Pink bathrooms are a part of American heritage and if recent trends are anything to be believed in, they are making their comeback!

So, next time you're thinking of ripping out those pink tiles, reconsider! There are so many modern updates that you can work around, like redoing your flooring, switching out your bathroom vanity cabinet and countertop, (If you're looking for a bathroom vanity at a low price, check out our selection here!) upgrading your sink, faucets and light fixtures--all at a much lower price than gutting your walls.
