How To Make Your Bathroom The Envy Of Prospective Buyers

An unattractive and dated bathroom can be a big turn off and the last thing a lot of people want to do once they have bought the house is immediately get into redecorating a bathroom.

Giving a bathroom a makeover doesn’t always require a complete overhaul, there are simple and hassle free ways to make it more attractive without you having to splash the cash. You also want to be aware of not redecorating a bathroom in too specific a style as this might go against certain buyer’s tastes.

Here are our top tips for making your bathroom a positive point rather than a negative one for prospective buyers.

Classic Themes
Overall a bathroom isn’t really the sort of place where you want to experiment with styles. This isn’t to say that you have to be boring but it is important to opt for a style that you can see fitting in with the rest of your house and one that you won’t want to change after a few years. If in doubt then always go for a neutral colour scheme, this will suit practically all bathrooms and will be a good base for the rest of your design.

Painting
Everyone knows one of the quickest and easiest ways to make a room look fresher is to give it a quick lick of paint! Paint can transform a room from dark and dingy to bright and airy in no time at all. Choose neutral and light tones, as they will be more agreeable to everyone than any bold style.

Grouting
Generally grouting is the most irritating and unappealing area of a bathroom, this is where dirt and bacteria sneak into and can make a bathroom look very dirty and old. If this is the case in your bathroom then you might want to consider a re-grout. You might even want to consider retiling the bathroom all together with a more modern and easy to maintain style.

New Taps
Another quick and easy way to introduce a bit of style and character into a bathroom is to replace the taps with either modern or vintage designs. It is a cheap option that can create a more elegant bathroom.

Shower Curtains
It’s fair to say that a lot of shower curtains are really worse for wear and if this is the case in your bathroom then you might want to consider swapping it for a new one or removing it all together. You shouldn’t underestimate the impact of small changes in a room and this is definitely one that will swing whether a bathroom is stylish or cringe worthy.

Mirrors
Too many bathrooms rely on a tiny mirror and we are generally of the opinion that the bigger the better! Mirrors not only help you in them morning but they also reflect light from the window and make the bathroom a lighter and fresher environment.
