Bathrooms.com Ultimate DIY Guide for homeowners to enhance their property
A lot of families are looking to sell their property for the maximum value they can get, whether it is to upgrade to a property to cater for their growing family or to move to a ‘forever’ home. Unfortunately, it is a buyer’s market out there at the moment, which means that property prices are plateauing and sellers are finding it difficult to drive the value of their property up, mainly because renovating their property to make it more sellable is costing thousands of pounds when they are already feeling the pinch. A lot of families have taken it amongst themselves to do the DIY work to save money and this has proven quite successful over the years.
In 2012, the British public spent £7.54billion on DIY, showing that the British public is undoubtedly growing bolder in their DIY projects, with 93% of people saying that they have taken on jobs around the home themselves.
Bathrooms.com has announced a new app to help minimise cost and enhance your property value
Bathrooms.com was founded in 2004 and have been providing the UK and Ireland with affordable bathroom design ever since. Based in Watford, the Bathrooms.com team conducted extensive research into the market and found that renovating your bathroom can add back double the value of the work you put in, making it one of the most cost-effective enhancements to your property. Even simply adding features like mixer taps, glass screens and chrome towel heaters to your bathroom can add an extra 3% to your house’s value.
But, can you do the DIY work yourself?
Thankfully, Bathrooms.com have launched their ultimate Bathroom DIY resource web app to help homeowners drive up the value of their home at minimal cost, whilst providing simple guides to frustrating DIY problems in and around the bathroom.

Use the virtual bathroom
