Renovating your bathroom can do more for your home than simply improving the look and feel of this important space.
It can also add value to your property and help to generate a greater return if you ever chose to sell or rent. For a standard bathroom update which keeps the same layout, you could add between three to five percent to the value of your home, depending on the quality of the refurbishments. To add more value again, you could extend your bathroom, providing more space for a larger suite and added functionality.
It’s no surprise homeowners often choose to invest in their bathrooms when considering the value of their property for the future. Many potential buyers and tenants prioritise the quality of kitchens and bathrooms over any other space. As well as increasing the value, renovating your bathroom could also make selling your home easier and quicker.
If you’re considering a bathroom remodel, we’ve put together five ways you can add value to your home with a bathroom renovation.
Showers are arguably more popular than baths these days. If your bathroom has enough space for a separate bath and shower, go for it. However, there are some great bath/shower combinations to suit both modern and traditional bathroom styles.
There are so many different shower options to choose from, including wet rooms, power showers, rain shower heads and more. Then there’s the option of sleek glass doors and screens. If you are creating your bathroom solely to increase value, it’s best to go with something that offers style and practicality in equal measures.
Whether you want ‘couple style’ sinks in an en-suite, or a second sink in a busy family bathroom, adding an additional sink can be an attractive feature for many prospective buyers or tenants. It’s also considered a luxury feature and a memorable selling point.
Extending your bathroom is likely to give the greatest boost to the value of your home. Bathrooms are often the smallest rooms in a property, so adding more space for a larger shower and more storage will be extremely attractive. However, if the only way of increasing the size of your bathroom is by reducing the size of one of your bedrooms, you may want to reconsider; this could do the opposite and decrease the value of your property.
If you’re serious about selling your home, it’s best to go for a neutral colour scheme. That doesn’t mean to say you need to remove all character and life from your bathroom. You can still add bold colours using accessories and plants, but when it comes to the bathroom suite and tiles, neutral shades will be attractive to a broader range of potential buyers.
You can never have too much storage. Try to opt for vanity units, shelving and mirrored cabinets. We store a lot in our bathrooms and buyers will consider this when it comes down to deciding on one property over another.
