If you’re looking to add value to your home before putting it on the market, one of the key areas to focus on is your bathroom. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint or a full makeover, there is always space to improve in your bathroom.
Bathroom renovations and additions can help increase your home’s value, but remember to keep it simple. Here are our top tips for a value-adding makeover.
Less is more
People often fall into the trap of going overboard with items like patterned tiles and eccentric taps. Remember, not everyone has the same style interests as you, and it could put off a potential buyer who wants to move into a ready finished home. Sticking to mainstream and tasteful features will serve you better.
What lies beneath
A cracked tile can be more ominous than it seems. Cracked or damaged tiles can allow water to get into areas where it is not supposed to go. Water that is allowed to get behind the wall or floor of the shower can lead to damage to the substrate, discolouration of tiles and weakening of tile adhesives that can eventually causing tiles to break away. The longer cracked tiles are left unfixed, the greater the risk that significant structural damage may occur.
Cracked or discoloured tiles can be a symptom of a superficial problem or more serious structural issues. Where and how your tiles are cracking is a key indicator. Do your tiles have small cracks on the tile edge, cracks in the tile corners or hairline cracks in the glaze? Or have they cracked in a straight line across multiple tiles on the floor or wall? These are questions we can help you with so you can ensure that there are no nasty surprises that may crop up in your buyer’s property inspection.
DIY is not always best
You may think your DIY skills are pretty good, but a potential buyer may disagree. Poor workmanship can instantly change a buyers perspective of your property, especially things like uneven and crumbly grout, peeling silicone and damp patches.
