Remodelling your bathroom can significantly add to both the sale-ability and rent-ability of your property. Particularly in London’s highly competitive property market, a newly renovated, sophisticated, trendy bathroom can increase your chance of snapping up the perfect tenant or buyer.
At EDGE2, we’re London bathroom remodelling specialists, and here are our top tips to getting the best look possible:
1) Try to keep plumbing it is
Plumbers are one of the most expensive parts of remodelling a bathroom. If you are able to leave the plumbing as it is, and create your design around your existing pipe locations, you will save a significant amount of both time and money.
2) Sophisticated feature fittings
Round mirrors and indirect pendant lights are a great way to add moodiness to a design and give it an eye-catching sophisticated look.
3) Embrace the size
If you have a small bathroom, it’s often tempting to use large mirrors to give the illusion of more space. Sometimes it’s best to embrace the size and make it look chic rather than big. This is particularly true on en-suites and second bathrooms.
4) Use warm colours NOT blue
Aside from giving a bathroom the look of a public lav, there are plenty of studies that talk about how light refection on blue surfaces have a cold effect on the skin. To give your bathroom a warm and inviting feel, use soft, warm tones for the walls and accent with tiling and fitting colours to match your taste.
5) His and hers vanity
If you have the space and want your bathroom to really stand out, create a his & hers vanity. As well as giving you a premium luxury fell, you will get the practicality of each having your own space. After all, this is the secret to a healthy and happy married life – apparently!
