Add Value to Your Property with an Updated Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. A great bathroom should feel as clean and new as you do after using it.

Having an up-to-date, stylish bathroom can completely transform the overall appeal of your home, increase its value and make it feel more modern. 

A Very Worthwhile Investment  

According to, upgrading your bathroom can add as much as 4-5% onto the value of your home. That means, if your home is valued at around £230K, you could add up to £11,500 onto the value of your property by remodelling and updating your bathroom.  

Modern Luxury Made Simple 

Because bathrooms are so small, injecting yours with a touch of modern luxury is probably easier than you think. Simple changes such as installing a second sink, a wetroom shower or a stylish vanity unit will do wonders for your home’s overall aesthetic appeal. And we all know that the greater the appeal, the greater the value.  

Extra Storage For Selling 

Adding extra bathroom storage is also an easy, yet extremely effective way of keeping your interior looking tidy and pristine. As storage space is often a make or break issue, installing clever storage solutions is a fantastic way to enhance your home’s appeal to potential buyers.  

The Greener, The Better 

A bathroom remodel can also make your home more energy efficient, help and future-proof your property. Motion detector lights and touchless taps will add some modern charm to your room while dramatically reducing your water and electric wastage. A win for you, a win for the planet!

Try Before You Buy… Your Property

Buying a new property can be just as stressful as it is exciting. With so much to think about, it can be easy to overlook some of the most important aspects to consider pre-purchase.

Plumbing and heating surveys will identify any existing or potential issues with the home that a building inspection might miss.  

When you opt for a survey, an experienced plumber will pop round to inspect all aspects of the property’s plumbing. Drains, hot water feeds and heating systems are all checked over for current or potential problems. 

The Benefits of Pre-Purchase Plumbing and Heating Surveys 

Save Yourself Some Money 

Any problems identified with the property before purchase can be paid by the owner’s home insurance. This will protect you from hefty plumbing fees or unwanted surprises when you move in.  

Should any major issues with plumbing or heating be identified, the property’s saleability will be greatly impacted. By conducting a simple pre-purchase survey, you may be able to negotiate a considerable chunk off of the property’s asking price.  

A More Attractive Mortgage Deal  

Lenders are less likely to offer you a good mortgage deal if they think the property is overvalued. A pre-purchase plumbing and heating survey will ensure a more accurate price evaluation.   

What’s more, there’s less risk involved with the purchase when you know the working order of the property’s components. This makes you more attractive to lenders and should therefore guarantee a better mortgage deal.
