Making Your Bathroom More Saleable
When you are selling your home, you will often find that it is the kitchen and bathroom that potential buyers want to see first. This is because the kitchen is the heart of the home and the bathroom is one of those places where people want to be able to relax in pleasant surroundings. Of course, it is also because the kitchen and bathroom often cost the most to renovate when compared to say a bedroom or living room.
With that in mind, it is really important that you get to make sure the kitchen and bathroom are as desirable as possible before you sell. In this article, we’re going to look at what you can do to make the bathroom more saleable.
Regrout the tiles
If your tiles are in decent shape, then simply regrouting them will make them look fresh and new, which means they will be far more inviting to the average buyer than tiles that have been left to get a little grungy.
Replace the shower tray
If you have had the same shower tray for a while, it can start to get a bit grubby, and no amount of scrubbing will bring it back to its best if that is the case, then investing in new wet room shower trays that do the job and looks amazing is an affordable way to make your bathroom more saleable right now.
Update the flooring
If your bathroom’s flooring is old, worn or out of style, then switching it out for something more contemporary can really help to improve its appeal. For example, getting rid of carpet or linoleum and replacing it with ceramic tiles will instantly add value However many modern buyers find tile to be a bit outdated too, and if you can stretch to hardwood floors, that is likely to make your bathroom even more saleable.
Invest in a more luxurious bathtub
There is nothing wrong with a standard bathtub, but it is not exactly inspiring. If you want to really wow potential buyers, then investing in a statement roll top bathtub or a much bigger bath than you currently have, are two good ways to do so.
Switch out the taps and handles
A low-cost way to make your bathroom more inviting, and therefore, more saleable, is to get rid of old taps, showerheads and cabinet handles, and replace them with more contemporary styles made from the best materials you can afford. Often, it is the little touches that make the most difference and this is definitely a case of that.
Improve the shower
If your shower has a low amount of power or does not get very hot, these two things could put buyers off, so invest in a higher-powered shower and get a plumber to check things over.
As you can see, it really is not too difficult, nor does it have to be very expensive, to get your bathroom into a more saleable state, and doing o will give you a much better chance of selling quickly for a good price. So, what are you waiting for?
