Improve the Smallest Room

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

Room ImprovementAs the prospects in the UK economy grow, it is reflected in consumer confidence. While some people may be looking to move, others may prefer to simply modernise their existing home. If you have no need for extra space and you are happy with the location, then it is only a question of whether you want to change your interior. There have been a few years where property values have been largely static. As those values now rise it is certainly worth investing in improvements because the work ought to be reflected in the value. While some property may have dropped in value significantly through the years of 2008 and 2009, a period the IMF calls the Great Recession, the vast majority see the future in very bright terms.

Makeover
Your property may need a general makeover. It is certainly worth thinking whether it is energy efficient, whether it needs new doors or windows to replace those that have seen better days. Sometimes it is worth getting a second opinion because you may simply have got used to familiar surroundings and not be able to be objective.

As an example of what to consider, the smallest room in the house, the bathroom, can be just as important to the value as the largest. If the bathroom is genuinely small then it is worth thinking about how to make best use of the space in which you will need a toilet and basin before you think about a bath or shower. A modern steam shower certainly takes up little space and can be sited in the corner with hooks, cabinet and shelving to complete the room.

Specialists
There are companies that specialise in bathrooms and it is worthwhile looking online to get some ideas. The Internet allows you to do your research and then ask questions of the companies that interest you. Companies such as www.jtspas.co.uk understand the need to provide quality products, an easy to navigate website and good service. You can expect to get all the help you need in selecting a shower as well as having it delivered throughout the country, often at no charge.

Does it fit?
Revamping a bathroom has practical limitations. There is a finite floor space and you will need to know that everything will fit in while giving you space to move. Showers can fit into the tightest of spaces. In each case you will be able to see the dimensions and work out whether a particular product is suitable for your bathroom. That doesn’t mean you will have to install it yourself of course.

The smallest room in your house can suddenly become one of the most impressive. It will be a place that you can actually enjoy and impress potential buyers at a time in the future when you might like to move on.
