WHY YOU SHOULD POLISH UP YOUR BATHROOM BEFORE SELLING

By Better Life Homeloans Blog

As every estate agent will tell you, spotless bathrooms are key selling points when putting your home on the market - coming a close second to an attractive kitchen - and it may not be as difficult as you think to put a sparkle in your buyer’s eye.

While luxury homes sometimes offer bathrooms on the scale of a Roman bath house, with stretches of marble and impressive columns, under-floor heating, steam showers and even fridges and fireplaces these days, even a modest update of an ordinary bathroom can increase the appeal of your home and bring about a quicker sale.

What is more, homeowners can expect to recover at least 70% of the cost of any bathroom renovation once they sell, according to the latest Cost v Value report from Remodelling Magazine.

If you can afford it, you should consider replacing the old bathroom suite, having the floor and walls tiled and installing a vanity. Home improvement guru, Bob Vila, has some great DIY options to check out for inspiration.

But if you’re on a very tight budget, or need to sell urgently, try just repainting the bathroom in a neutral shade and installing a large new medicine/makeup cabinet and some additional lighting for a quick fix

Then make sure all surfaces, especially mirrors and fittings, are polished up to a sparkle, hang some new towels and add attractive extras such as flowers, candles and bottles of bath oil for a luxurious look.

For more budget-friendly bathroom update ideas, take a look at these tips to keep your budget in check.
