Luxury Bathrooms a Must Have For Savvy Sellers
As life becomes more frantic in the 21st Century, the bathroom more than ever has become an area we use to retreat and revive ourselves. Luxury bathrooms have become top of many people’s ‘must have’ list. But for savvy sellers, it is also a profitable investment.
In days gone by, a bathroom was a place you would simply ‘wash and go’. These days a luxury bathroom has become a necessity to a lot of people, especially when purchasing an up-market home.
Luxury Bathrooms are Deemed Essential
“As far as the prime central London market is concerned, less than one bathroom for each bedroom is fundamentally too few. In an ideal world, a five-bedroom house should have a minimum of two en suite bath or shower rooms, plus one family bathroom.” Bella Tellwright, Of Notting Hill estate agents Crayson.
Robin Chatwin, head of Savills in south-west London has declared that buyers can’t get enough bathing opportunities.
“The appetite for multiple bathrooms continues to grow,” he explains. “It’s not uncommon to see an extra bathroom added by sacrificing a small bedroom.”
High Quality Solid Surfaces Used to Create a luxury Bathroom Installation
And what the materials used to create bathrooms has changed dramatically. The market is full of beautiful high end products, from bespoke baths and taps, through to fabulous marble, granite and sparkle solid surface products from the likes of Versital. As The Telegraph states:
“The biggest transformation has been in what the modern bathroom is made of. Gone are the chipboard cupboards and the plastic shower trays. In their place are carefully matched wall panels made of Calacatta marble, fog-free make-up mirrors and £4,500 copper baths”.
A Spa in Your Own Home
Another idea originating from hotels that is growing in popularity is the creation of a complete suite incorporating both the bedroom and bathroom, nicknamed the ‘bethroom’. Creating spa-like experience’s with steam rooms, or walk-in shower areas using solid surface paneling in calming marble and granite finishes.
No Grouting Required
Of course, any real luxury bathroom won’t be troubled with issues such as grouting. Opting for solid surface panels, seamless shower trays and vanity tops creates a clean and calm environment with no grouting required.
