It's found in every house and apartment. A bathroom is a place of privacy and comfort - each one unique and designed differently. A bathroom, just like any other room, reflects our character and personality. As new trends become apparent in the market, our bathrooms may need to be updated.
But why should you renovate your bathroom, and how does it add value to your home?
Time For a Change.
What would make you renovate your bathroom? A need for a change? A need for something new and fresh? Whatever your reason, upgrading your bathroom will be sure to make your home a much more inviting place to be. Plus, it will add extra value, should you ever think of selling up and moving on elsewhere.
As we know, the market value for housing is high and unlikely to decrease. However, there is a way to add even more value to your house and bring more comfort for yourself at the same time, simply by renovating your bathroom and changing some of its fixtures and accessories. After the kitchen, it's the second most important room in the house and will add the most value to your home.

Having a budget in the back of your mind is very important.

Investing in key pieces is always worth the spend.
Accessories Can Change Everything.
The fun part begins once your budget is set and your plan comes in motion. Fixtures like a nano-tempered glass shower or a granite counter are one way to give your bathroom a fresh and stylish look. The other less expensive way is to give your bathroom accessories an overhaul. Easy items to update include;
- Towel rails
- Shower heads
- Mood lighting
- Nano-tempered glass showers
- Laundry baskets (and many more)
They will change the way your bathroom looks and feels with minimal effort. You can find more in our online store.
What Flooring Should I Choose?
Home decor styling changes constantly. It also changes when it comes to a flooring options in your home. There's so much to choose from - wooden floors and tiles are both extremely popular options right now.
Wooden floors, laid in a herringbone fashion, add a sense of luxury to your bathroom space. While using geometric or brightly coloured tiles in a smaller bathroom can really make a big impact.
Whichever option you decide to follow, the primary outcome is that you will increase the value of your home in the long run.
DIY (If You Can!)
Many of these bathroom upgrades can be done yourself, without any specialist skills or qualifications. Of course, for any major plumbing work or any sort of electrical work, a registered installer should always be used.
YouTube and Google are really useful resources for smaller jobs. Filled with two-minute tutorials and information, the internet can be a great teacher. Spend time upgrading your skill set, but remember - SAFETY FIRST. If you think you need a specialist to assist you. Reach out and get professional help.
While taking your time and money to remodel your home, start with one project and see it out to completion. Don't get distracted by changing or adding something to other areas of your house. Stick to your ideas and make them a reality!
Once you are satisfied with your bathroom, but the hunger and need for change persists, look around and start remodelling another room with minor upgrades.
