Improve Your Kitchen or Bathroom Without Spending a Fortune
You don’t need to be a property expert to know and understand that the kitchens and the bathrooms are usually the rooms that can tip the scale to selling a home.
To improve your kitchen and bathroom, do you really need to make the whole room look new? Especially if you’re planning to sell your home soon?
The good news is that you can do plenty of different things to make sure that you have a bathroom or kitchen that is much more appealing to a potential buyer.
Even if you’re not thinking of selling soon, simple changes will help you now for when you need to. Here are some of the things that you can do.
Fix Anything That Is Broken
We also recommend that you go through your kitchen and bathroom, fixing anything that is broken or looks like it’s starting to break in some way.
It might be the case that you can see a pipe that you are worried about, and if this is true then you need to get in touch with a plumbing service.
You might not realize it, but simply going through the rooms and fixing what isn’t in the best condition will improve your space massively.
A lot of this work you should be able to do yourself, which takes a lot of financial pressure off of you, and just means you have to get your hands a little dirty.
One of the things in a kitchen, particularly the bathroom that makes it look dated and leaves buyers feeling underwhelmed, is the tiles.
If you have tiles, which most are likely to, then how old are they?
Do they look a little worse for wear and need an update? If they are old, off-colour, dated, or just looking grim, then replacing them is a simple fix to refresh the space.
If you have any that are broken, they are likely to lead to leaks or damage to plaster and walls, so they should be replaced as a priority.
Tile paint is something that could also be considered. Especially if the tiles in your home need a little bit of an update and need to be freshened up.
Change the Grout
If you are replacing the tiles, then naturally, getting fresh grout will come as standard. If you don’t need to replace the tiles, you could still replace the grout.
It is a quick and easy win and can make the walls or the floor look instantly refreshed. It will help to lighten up a room.
Grout can become discoloured over time, as well as be a place where mold can gather. Replacing grout can bring such a fresh new feeling to the space.
Freshen Up Your Fixtures
If you want to create a bathroom that looks new, then looking at ways to freshen up your fixtures can be a good idea.
It could be anything from replacing faucets to getting a new shower installed. Whatever fits your needs and your budget. Looking for local plumbing services to help can be a good idea as if something like replacing a toilet goes wrong, it can be a messy complication to sort out yourself.
Assess Your Storage
Your bathroom isn’t a room where heaps of things need to be stored. However, if there are a lot of excess items out in a bathroom or a kitchen, then it can look messy. It can also attract dust, dirt, and mold.
So look at what storage you currently have and think about what can be improved.
