So, you’re thinking of selling in Marlborough… Your home will almost certainly be more attractive to prospective purchasers with some general sprucing up. It’s also no secret that well-maintained kitchens and bathrooms can be a point of focus for many buyers. That said, you probably don’t want to blow your moving budget on bathroom renovations just before you list. So, in this week’s article, we thought we’d help you out for some top tips to help you freshen up your bathroom on a budget.
Bathroom renovations on a budget:
You don’t have to spend a fortune to give your bathroom a facelift.
Banish grimy grout:
Grimy grout is unsightly and a real turn-off for your buyers. Simply cleaning or replacing the grout around your bath, sink and shower will make a real difference. There are companies that specialise in this job, and have the equipment to carry out work effectively and efficiently! Check out GroutPro or Restore.
Clear the clutter:
If your bathroom is small, invest in a little extra storage. Keeping the bathroom countertops free from clutter will make your bathroom seem larger. New cabinets don’t necessarily mean massive bathroom renovations. And, if you buy free standing units, you can take them to your new home. Check out the Avalon Tall Shelves and Cupboard from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Its simplicity will fit with almost any bathroom design.
Spruce up the shower:
An eye-catching shower curtain can give your bathroom a lift! Splash Out can custom make shower curtains to fit non-standard spaces. They also have a range of curated designer curtains sourced from around the world. With free, worldwide shipping they’re a company worth checking out!
Mirror, mirror on the wall:
A new mirror is an easy way to update your bathroom. And can have the added advantage of making the room feel larger. You could even talk to our good friends at Pru & Co about upcycling an existing mirror. A fresh lick of paint around the frame in a cheerful colour to match your towels and shower curtain might be the perfect way to round of your bathroom renovations.
Lift your lighting game:
Bathroom lighting is important. You might want bright lights in the morning to start your day, but softer lights in the evening when you want to relax in the tub. Philips Hue can help you create smart mood lighting without the requirement to retrofit wiring. Find out more on the Noel Leeming website.
