People are always looking for ways to make changes around their home in an effort to make it more comfortable for themselves and their families but also to try to increase the value of the property. When you’re talking about adding an extension to a home or fitting a completely new kitchen, then you’re looking at many thousands of dollars to do so. There are opportunities around your home to make smaller, yet effective changes that will provide you with both of the benefits above but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to do so. I am, of course, talking about the refurbishment of the bathroom.

This is probably a room that has never been changed since you moved into the house and it is likely that you have many ideas about what it is that you want to change. Some better lighting would be a good start and maybe more modern appliances and fittings from Mimicoco would be better. We have all become extremely eco-friendly and so making some changes to reduce your carbon footprint would also be an excellent idea. The following are just some of the many benefits of refurbishing your current bathroom.

  • It increases the value of your home – Anything that you spend on refurbishing your bathroom will be clawed back if and when you decide to sell your property. The kitchen and the bathroom are the two most important rooms in any home for any potential buyer and if these are in pretty good shape, then there is a high likelihood that you will sell the home quickly and that the bid will come in higher than normal. You might even consider the idea of putting one of the best air-conditioners in there.  It’s important to remember that any changes that you make need to be able to remain fashionable for many years to come.
  • It saves you money now – If you keep putting off your bathroom refurbishment that you have been doing for the past 3 to 5 years, then the longer you leave it, the more money it is going to cost later. You need to get the toilet and shower replaced soon to address the rising water bills that you have been receiving. Modern toilets and sinks use less water and so this should provide you with significant savings now. The prices of tiles and other add-ons is going up every year, so get the work done this month.

  • It will provide you with a place of relaxation – This is a room that you are in on a very regular basis and so it is important that while you’re in there, it is incredibly comfortable. This is where all the magic happens at the weekends when you are getting ready to go out with friends, and so everything needs to be right, from the best lighting to soothing colours that will help you to relax.

You’re only going to get one chance to do this right because it’s probably going to be another 10 years before you look at this kind of project again. Take your time, make wise choices and create the bathroom of your dreams. Only you know what you want, and only you can make it happen.
