How to Add Value to Your Home With a Brand New Bathroom

If you’re going to modify your home in a bid to add value, it’s important to note that not all refurbishments have been created equal. Installing a new bathroom is one of the most profitable modifications, however, as this delivers an estimated ROI of 48% on a £4,900 average spend. Not only this, but the bathroom is far more than a merely functional space, as it also provides a safe-haven away. from the hustle and bustle of family life. So, here are some ways in which you can effectively upgrade your bathroom and add value to your property: 

1. Add an en-Suite 

Convenience is a key factor for aspiring home-owners, particularly those who have big families and young children. For this demographic, having a single bathroom in any property is unrealistic, which is why adding one or more en-suites can be incredibly rewarding. Whilst this may seem like a daunting task, it arguably optimises the value of installing a new bathroom and creates a greater sense of personal space for parents and married couples. If you need further convincing, research from the Gocompare platform found that an en-suite bathroom is the second most desirable feature amongst home buyers. This makes for compelling reading, and more than justifies the cost of installation. 

2. Introduce Some Luxury Features 

Like the kitchen, the modern bathroom has evolved considerably in recent times, making it far more than a functional space that’s home to your daily ablutions. In fact, it’s important create a relaxing and luxurious bathroom space that includes some eye-catching features, as this will capture the imagination of buyers and instantly enhance the appeal of your home. From underfloor heating and power showers to whirlpool baths and heated towel racks, these simple design features can go a long way to creating a bathroom suite that that’s the envy of others. 

3. Bring your Bathroom into the Modern Age 

Historically, bathrooms were dingy and dark spaces, defined by green and brown shades and a clear lack of personality. This is no longer the case, however, with white fixtures and luxury surfaces now all the rage. Whilst most bathrooms remain relatively neutral, it’s no longer unusual to see these rooms infused with bright and bold colours, so a lick of paint can really help to bring your design into the modern age. On a similar note, introducing soft lighting and mirrored surfaces can help to make the most of any natural light that engulfs the space, as this is another key consideration in 2019.
