4 Easy Renovation Tips for your Bathroom and Shower

The condition of your bathroom says a lot about your home, particularly when you are planning to rent or sell. The bathroom is often one of the most important rooms for attracting potential buyers or tenants so you want to make sure it’s looking its best. Mould, water stains and cracked or broken tiles don’t give the best impression. Whether you are hoping to rent or sell your home or you just want to make your bathroom more appealing, these four renovation tips may help.

  1. Keep personal items out of view as much as possible. This means making sure you have enough storage in your bathroom to contain all the items you use on a regular basis. Consider adding drawers and compartments or a free standing cabinet to help with organisation.

  2. The lighting you choose for your bathroom can make a big difference to the atmosphere. Bright lighting gives a clean modern appeal while dimmer lighting can give it a more relaxed feeling. If you can, consider installing a dimmer switch on your bathroom lights – you’ll have ambience for that long bubble bath and bright light for those quick morning showers.

  3. Keep your grouting and tiles clean and in good condition. Make sure you have any cracks and damaged tiles attended to as quickly as possible as they can be signs of leaks. A professional tile and grout clean can help keep everything looking sparkling.

  4. Swap your shower curtain for a glass screen which not only looks better but is easier to keep clean. Ensure your shower screen is properly sealed to make it easier to clean and help it last longer. It’s amazing the difference a new shower screen can make to a dull or aging bathroom.

Whether you are improving your bathroom for your own benefit or to make your house more appealing to others, a few simple changes can make a big difference and they don’t need to be expensive. Keeping your tiles and shower in good condition can help reduce the risk of long term water damage and keep your bathroom looking great for longer.
