Add Value to Your Home with Shower Improvements

EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2010) - The bathroom has recently become the room to give attention to in order to add value to your home. Suddenly, the focus in home style magazines and property developers' tips has shifted to renovating this area in order to make your home stand out from the rest.

Home style and DIY television programmes have increased buyers' awareness of valuable and also devaluing aspects of houses nowadays, so sellers have to be a lot shrewder in making their house appealing to buyers. But who'd have thought something as simple as buying a new shower head could have the desired effect?

Designers say even the smallest of bathrooms can be treated to an illusory makeover, which will help you to improve your bathroom and make it more alluring to buyers. The trick is to emphasise its appeal for bathing and relaxing, say the Shower Doctor.

A spokesperson for the leading shower and shower accessories specialist, commented: 'The bathroom is a place that should be uncluttered, clean and light to encourage buyers to visualise it as somewhere they can both rest and refresh themselves. Just by maximising the space available and adding neat, functional accessories such as a heated towel rail or a glass shower screen can make a great difference to the selling power of your home'.

Property development has recently seen a real shift towards working on the bathroom, as fitting out a whole new kitchen or bathroom or undertaking an extension or conversion is too expensive for many post-recession.

However, the bathroom provides the opportunity to create a perfectly crafted space simply by applying a lick of neutral-coloured paint and some well-placed lights, or cleverly positioned mirrors for the illusion of space plus a modern, attractive looking shower with a neat, easy to pack away shower hose.

Just the addition of these things can create a more harmonious feel for the bathroom and make it a selling point of the house. People are lot more adventurous with their bathrooms these days; favouring stylish basin sinks and freestanding bath tubs for a more luxurious experience. So it is advised not to leave any slightly moulding, seventies style pea green bathroom suites in when showing potential buyers round your house!
