Along with the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the main selling features in any home. The last thing that any potential buyers want to see is a bathroom that’s in desperate need of a full remodel, so make sure to follow our top tips and advice on how to transform your bathroom into a selling point.
Combine style and functionality
The bathroom doesn’t just need to look stylish, it needs to be a functional space too, but avoid creating a look that’s too personal as it needs to appeal to an array of tastes. A family with young children will always require a bath tub, so when remodelling your bathroom don’t replace it with a shower enclosure, as this can put potential buyers off. If you have enough space in your bathroom install a separate shower enclosure and bath tub, which will appeal to everyone. If you have a small bathroom fit a shower over the tub so you get the best of both showering and bathing in the same space.
Installing a hydronic towel warmer won’t just enhance the overall look and feel of the bathroom, but it provides the best way to keep towels warm and dry. Hydronic towel warmers are available in a variety of sizes and styles to complement any décor. Remember to install your hydronic towel warmer as close to the tub or shower as possible so that your towel is within easy reach.
Modern bathrooms are all about sleek, streamlined styling, and one of the easiest ways in which to achieve this is to ensure that all surfaces are kept clutter free. There’s nothing worse than an untidy bathroom that’s full of clutter, especially when any potential buyers come for a viewing. To create a neat, organised space, include storage such as a mirrored cabinet or a vanity unit to keep toiletries hidden away out of sight.
When choosing fittings such as the shower, faucets, basin and WC opt for simple, yet stylish designs with clean lines, but don’t go for anything that will look dated in a couple of years; aim to create a look that will stand the test of time.
