The bathroom is one of the most profitable rooms in the home when it comes to renovation projects.

Tap Warehouse consulted with UK property experts to reveal which bathroom investments can add the most value to your house – making all these changes could even result in a 5% increase in value to the average home.

We've explained a few below...

Powerful shower

Investing in a power shower and/or an electric shower costs around £500 to supply and fit, but is sure to add value to your home when you come to sell it.

Upgrading your existing shower to a more modern version is sure to attract potential buyers, knowing that they won't need to change it when they move in.

Sturdy fixtures

Making sure your fixtures and fittings are sturdy and are of good quality is essential when it comes to your renovating decisions. It could cost as little as £100 to switch up your fittings so it is well worth the change. 

Deep bathtub

A bathroom with a luxurious bath in it is a huge selling point, especially if it is separate from the shower.

A new bath can cost anywhere between £200-£1,000+ depending on what style and design you go for. Investing in a stand alone bath, like this one from The Albion Bath Company will make your bathroom look immediately expensive.

Neutral colour scheme

Research shows that buyers are attracted to neutral bathroom schemes, probably because it is easier for them to picture how they would add their personal style to the space. Opting for a neutral bathroom might not be your heart's desire, but if you're thinking of renovating to sell, then this could be the way forward.

Wet room

Incorporating a walk-in shower or wet room into your existing space can set you back around £8,000, but it's sure to add value to your home.

54% of property experts would highly recommend making this change to your bathroom as a potential selling point.

Quality tiles

Keeping up appearances definitely matters and making sure your tiles and grout are in good order is essential in achieving a polished bathroom look. If your grout is looking a bit tired, make sure to give it a good clean.
