What does your bathroom mean to you? For many it’s the one place in the house where the rest of the world can be shut off, whilst you enjoy some relaxing time alone. However, bathrooms aren’t all about luxury, they also need to be practical – so how do you find that perfect balance that will add value to your bathroom in the future?
At EGW, we specialise in bespoke glass fittings, whether you’re looking for specially designed frosted glass, shower screens or bespoke mirrors – we offer a huge range to choose from. Thanks to our years of industry expertise, we have come to learn a thing or two about adding value to a home simply by switching up the glass fixtures – and today we’re sharing what we know with you!
Can a bathroom revamp really add value to your home?
It’s a bit of a no brainer that adding new fixtures and fittings around your home will inevitably add value, but why should you put extra thought into your bathroom? According to the National Association of Realtors, a good bathroom renovation can see you recouping anywhere up to 50% of the cost you put into the project. But, don’t worry if you’re working to a budget, according to a recent consumer report, even small and relatively low-cost updates can reap around 2-3% more for your home if you go on to sell.
Three affordable ways you can add value to your bathroom
Your home doesn’t have to be on the market to want to improve your bathroom, and luckily there are some simple things you can do that will make a big impact – without breaking the bank!
#1 Don’t underestimate the power of a new shower screen
When we’re designing a new bathroom, we think of colour schemes, tile designs, what flooring will work best. Usually, a shower screen is a last-minute purchase, if bought at all, with many homes still opting for a more affordable, although less aesthetic shower curtain.
However, fitting a stylish new shower screen and doing away with your dated curtain can not only make your shower a feature element of the bathroom, but can effortlessly open up the space. Simultaneously making it appear more modern and even bigger in size.
At EGW we specialise in toughened glass, and even offer low iron glass for an extra crystal-clear look – perfect for creating a wow factor in your bathroom. Whether you want a hinged shower screen, one with specific designs or a tinted glass effect – we can help.
#2 Add new dimensions to your bathroom with a bespoke mirror
Mirrors are the easiest and most affordable way of adding the illusion of size to any space. So, if you’re trying to work with a small bathroom, or simply want to add extra dimensions to the room – a bespoke mirror could be the perfect solution.
We offer a range of bespoke glass mirror options, allowing you to really leave your mark. Choose from 4mm or 6mm thickness, and a mirror cut to fit any shape or size, perfect if you’re struggling with a small space.
#3 Enhance your bathroom display with glass shelving
The bathroom may not be the place we spend most of our time, but for many of us it is a room that stores lots of item. Bath and shower products, toiletries, perfumes, candles – we tend to display and store a lot of goods in our bathroom.
To avoid a cluttered and claustrophobic environment, why not try a minimalist approach and display just a few of your items on glass shelves. These give an almost floaty appearance, allows your favourite luxury items to be displayed aesthetically, and can also help to make your bathroom look bigger and more spacious.
