It’s officially bathroom season, which means only one thing, the time has come for you to renovate your tired looking bathroom. Property owners are able to breathe again with recession now over. This is great for the economy and the property world has begun to wake up as the nesting instinct kicks in, now its time to spend and extend. So if you need to invest in property the best place to start is the Bathroom.

Bathrooms sell houses, Fact. However a modern and contemporary bathroom is going to be a much better selling point than a traditional old-fashioned bathroom suite, for example a toilet that looks dated or dirty (or doesn’t flush properly) is a turn off and the same goes for décor and storage space, which should not only be eye-catching but practical.Proper lighting can also be a great value booster, such as adding a window in the bathroom, so natural light can illuminate the space. An attractive pedestal sink with luxurious curves and graceful lines is far more attractive than a blocky cabinet.

One of the most common mistakes bathroom redecorators make is trying to do too much. Instead of choosing numerous standout features, like large fixtures or a glamorous chandelier, simply choose one elegant standout feature to be your focal point. Choose a Freestanding Bath. Freestanding baths are the height of fashion for smallest room chic and they come in a whole range of modern and vintage styles. It’s not by chance that baths tend to be tucked into the corner of the room. It’s usually the most efficient use of space in what is generally a small room, plus the corner position and a bath surround hides the plumbing.

Freestanding baths can be sited with the length going along a wall but aesthetically they need space at each end to show off their contours. Freestanding bathroom furniture is more adaptable and means you can change the room format when you want to. Don’t forget to factor in the space impact of towel rails (and whether you want these to be heated as well as coat and towel hooks behind doors and on walls, which also need clearance (and are often at head height). Creating a simple theme that runs throughout your bathroom can be achieved with accessories and colour to create a well rounded fresh bathroom setting. Perfect.
