Property development can be a very challenging experience, especially when it comes creating a new bathroom that will appeal to everyone. When designing a new bathroom there are a few things that you should keep in mind to ensure that it suits a wide range of tastes and requirements.


Before starting any work on a new bathroom have a good think about what potential buyers would like to see in the room. Avoid creating a look that is personal to you, and instead try to achieve a neutral, modern look that’s both functional and stylish.

To ensure that you achieve a uniform look in the bathroom think about choosing a plain, white bathroom suite that includes the bath, toilet, sink and taps; this will also help you to save money too.

Include a bath

If you only have a limited amount of space in the bathroom, installing a bath is a definite must, as this will meet most requirements, especially families with young children. But, if you have a larger bathroom always include a separate shower enclosure to make the new bathroom more appealing. Quadrant shower enclosures are ideal as they feature a clever space-saving design and provide the bathroom with a neutral look.

Bathroom storage

Including bathroom furniture such as a vanity unit will always provide a great selling feature, and will make your bathroom more attractive if potential buyers can see that there is handy storage included.

Fixtures & fittings

Never fit carpet in the bathroom, as this will only put potential buyers off. Instead choose some stone or ceramic floor tiles to create a clean, modern look. If you have the budget why not opt for underfloor heating to create a real selling feature.

Ensuring that the new bathroom feels warm and inviting with a heated towel rail is a great idea and it will provide a feature too. Heated towel rails are available in a wide variety of sizes to suit every type of bathroom.

Make sure that the bathroom is well lit, by letting in as much natural light as possible, as well as including ceiling lights too.

When choosing bathroom accessories such as a towel rail, soap dish, toilet roll holder etc, ensure that they are from the same range to create a fully matching look. Also, accessorise with towels, candles and a large mirror to make the new bathroom feel more welcoming; the small details can really make all the difference to the overall look and feel of the bathroom.
