Could an updated bathroom add value to your home?

While home restoration and renovation are highly effective in increasing property resale values, bathrooms are often neglected when it comes to prioritising rooms for an upgrade – it’s easy to dismiss the humble household bathroom as little more than an everyday necessity, but updating the space is one of the easiest ways to add instant value to your home if you’re thinking of selling. Let’s take a closer look at some cost-effective ways to renovate your bathroom in order to boost the price of your property: 

Update or replace tiles – Because bathroom tiles are regularly exposed to moisture, they are particularly susceptible to cracking, damp, discolouration and mould – not only does this look scruffy and unhygienic, it can lead to expensive structural problems in the home later down the line and detract from the value of your property. In order to make your bathroom more attractive and boost value, consider investing in new tiling or renovating your existing tiles. A cost-effective way of giving tired white tiles a new lease of life is by transforming them with paint – this can also go a long way in cementing strong colour schemes and quirky design motifs. 

Repaint walls – In the same way that refreshing your tiles can brighten up your bathroom, repainting is a cheap and effective way of sprucing up the space. Get creative when painting tiles and walls and remember that modern bathrooms don’t have to be plain white and grey; try to impart a touch of your personality when designing an updated bathroom, which could add character and boost property value if done from the heart. Always use water-resistant paint when updating a bathroom and try to allow as much natural light into the space as possible to create the illusion of extra room. Repainting is a great way to boost value if you’re renovating your bathroom on a budget.

Update fixtures and fittings – When planning your renovation project, try to make space in your budget for updated fixtures and fittings – this could include installing a new shower, a wet-room or updated shower enclosure, heated towel rails and a new bathtub. As the focal point of any smaller bathroom, you’ll also need to invest in a new toilet if you want to generate value – older toilets can weather easily, look unattractive and significantly detract from the overall appearance of the space. When shopping for your updated bathroom with resale in mind, try to go with premium items that look luxurious and denote the most value. While these may be relatively expensive to replace or update, they’re guaranteed to add extra value to your home, especially if your existing bathroom is in bad shape.
