Home Buyers Looking at Luxury Bathrooms

When investing our money in a new home, it appears that luxury bathrooms are one thing home buyers are looking for. Although space is key when looking for a home, along with a good kitchen, it seems that luxury bathrooms are also high on the list. People would fawn over newly remodelled kitchens and they would add £1000’s onto asking prices and it now looks like luxury bathrooms are following suit. Not just entertaining spaces but also personal spaces need to be top notch, in a hectic world, there is nothing better than relaxing in a luxury bathroom, with a massage shower or whirlpool bath.

Contemporary Bathroom

His-and-hers bathrooms are on the rise with the number of people adding this to a list of must haves when buying a property, some more so than en-suites. Sinks for both, gives extra space and makes co-habiting in a bathroom as a couple much more pleasant, as there is less chance of a fight for space. His-and-hers bathrooms originally were only really found in high end luxury homes, however home buyers and home builders look to maximise on this popularity, which for many is only really enjoyed in hotels.

And it’s not just home buyers with a keen interest in luxury bathrooms and his-and-hers bathrooms, those not wanting to move look at creating a luxury bathrooms for themselves instead. Many people looking to create a sanctuary in their home and somewhere where they can relax. An investment in a luxury bathroom will pay dividends in your health and wellbeing. It’s much easier to relax, when your space isn’t cramped and you don’t have lots of clutter around.

His and Hers

As house prices continue to rise despite a credit crunch, home buyers are of course being savvy and wanting to make sure they get as much for their money as they can when buying a new home. Other rooms in a house can be easily repainted or carpets changed, however changing a bathroom can be expensive and not a task you want to undertake when you have just bought your home. Along the same lines as new kitchens new luxury bathrooms, mean less work needs to be done by the new home owner and makes houses much easier to sell, especially in this tough market. Any home that is pretty much ready to move into is ideal for many buyers.

The joy of giving

As we know Christmas is a traditional time for giving as well as receiving gifts from family and friends, the tradition came about of course, is to remind us of the presents given to Jesus by the Wise Men which were Frankincense Gold and Myrrh. However, the giving of gifts in the New Year is growing tradition when we go to a New Year party and of course it is very traditional in the Chinese community who celebrate their New Year, the year of the horse, on January the 31st so we thought it might be rather nice to suggest some gifts from our catalogue that can be given at any time of the year.

Very popular is the range from our accessories page which features bathroom accessories that can add that touch of luxury to your bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom. The Inda Gealuna Accessory package is a beautifully designed Italian set and represents amazing value. With the set are a double robe hook, tumbler and holder, toilet roll holder and multifunctional towel rail and liquid soap dispenser.

Perhaps the Burlington Classic set with the emphasis on classic old styling may be more appropriate if you have a Victorian or Edwardian style of bathroom; the set relies on modern technology but with yesterday’s styling of the towel ring, double robe hook, tumbler with holder, toilet roll holder and WC brush holder with matching brush

Less expensive but a product that will not look out of place even in the most expensive bathroom, the Twist four piece set gives the most used items on one low price set using top quality manufacturing techniques from Bristan, a well known and respected UK manufacturer and distributor of top quality bathroom products.

Finding the right sink or basin for your bathroom

When choosing a new sink for your cloakroom or en-suite you will be amazed at the wonderful choice you now have. There are many different types and sizes of bathroom sinks to choose from. Whether you are just looking for something functional, a really modern look or a more classic and stylish approach, there are dozens of shapes and sizes to choose from, so you should find what you are looking for.

It’s all a matter of taste, since any sink essentially provides the same thing, but choosing the most appropriate for the room of your choice requires a bit of thought before you start. So before you set your heart on a particular design, think about the size of the room, who uses it, how often, is it just to wash your hands or is it for all the family to use? Do you want to disguise all the plumbing, incorporate some handy storage space or are you looking for something a bit different? The choice is yours.

Make the most of a small bathroom

As the year starts to creep toward spring, but with the weather till hanging on to its winter grip, now is a good time to think about updating your bathroom, a refuge from the rest of the house where you can soak the day’s troubles away.

Many homes have small bathrooms but these can be take on a whole new look by fitting one of the new Victorian style baths which feature feet; these tend to give an impression of space. Before final fitting of the bath, get your electrician to light the back side of the underneath of the bath, which forms a nice pool of light on the floor and is also practical. No longer those harsh overhead lights when lying in the bath or using the bathroom in the middle of the night.
