When it comes to the home there are so many improvements we can make that will add value to the home, so more than others and there are always some that will cost more than they are worth. The bathroom is probably known as one of the most neglected rooms in the home but over the last few years has actually been a room more money has been spent on. In today’s article I intend on giving you a guide to investing in worthwhile bathroom improvements.
With the state of the economy in the UK right now and homeowners finding it ever difficult to sell their homes many are looking to improve their homes instead of sell. Experts have suggested recently that the bathroom is probably the most likely room for any DIY enthusiast to have a go at improving. This may be down to the fact that it is usually a smaller room than most.
Matthew Piner who is a retail analyst spoke at the ‘Totally DIY show’ at Birmingham NEC recently and he noted how once upon a time the garden and the kitchen were the big rooms for improvement and DIY lovers however in the present the bathroom seems to be the room targeted for improvement.
If you are looking to improve your home ready for sale doing jobs within the bathroom is one way of increasing the likeliness of sale. Having rooms ready for a buyer to move into is something that most will dream of.
Whether you have a huge budget or a relatively small one, you should always ensure you are spending your money wisely. Although you may love the thought of gold taps or a turquoise hot tub they may not be the best things in the world for when it comes to adding value to your home, or in fact selling it. Neutral styles are more appealing to estate agents and buyers alike.
Flooring is one of the main things we should be investing in; one that is durable while also attractive is a good idea. When people purchase under floor heating it may seem like a good idea at the time but the money you have to spend on buying it could have been better spent elsewhere, this is not an essential and more of a personal improvement.
Take time to plan every little aspect of your bathroom, from the colour of your flannels too the shape of your bath, if done properly you can easily create that bathroom you have always dreamed of.
