Whether you’re looking to sell your house or you’ve finally found your forever home, if you’re thinking of renovating your property at some point in the near future, it’s often worth researching which big changes will make a difference to your life and to the value of your home.
Research shows that a sparkly new bathroom can make a dramatic difference to the worth of your house, as well as how it makes you feel.
If your bathroom is old and dingy, you’re less likely to enjoy it or reap the many benefits of what a fabulous bathroom can offer.
After all, it’s where you start and finish each day. You wake up, use the toilet, wash your hands, take a shower, brush your teeth, brush your hair and are out of the door. Before going to bed brush your teeth, remove makeup, wash your face or take a bath, apply creams and moisturisers and are then ready for bed. The average person will spend about 1.5 years of his or her lifetime in the bathroom.
So, what makes for the perfect bathroom?
A survey shows that beautiful bathroom tiles and good grouting are important, with 76% of people saying this would add the most value. Electric and power showers followed closely behind at 70%, while suitably sized sink, toilet and bath fixtures tailed off at 60%. The majority agree that a luxurious tub could turn your basic bathroom into a relaxing space.
One of life’s great pleasures is relaxing in a hot bath. But it’s not quite so enjoyable if you’re worried about slipping, or how you’re going to get into and out of the bath. If you ever have these kind of worries, did you know you could have a walk-in bath installed in your own home? As you get older or start suffering from reduced mobility from problems such as illness or injury, getting into, or as is quite often the case, getting out of your bath may become difficult or even dangerous for some. With various walk in bath options, nothing will restrict you from missing out on the ultimate bliss that is a bubble bath.
Walk-in baths are not only an amazing product for seniors but also people with disabilities; they will maximise your ability to bathe safely and independently. If you’re putting off taking the plunge as you don’t associate yourself as elderly, well fear not – walk-in-baths are actually more popular than you think, with many middle-aged folk jumping on the bandwagon.
