Whether your house is on the market or you’re simply wanting to add value, 70% of estate agents have surveyed that an extra bathroom will help sell a home. Professionals cite the perfect bathroom to bedroom ratio as follows:
- One-bedroom and two-bedroom houses should have one bathroom.
- Three-bedroom and four-bedroom houses should have two bathrooms.
- Five-bedroom houses should have three bathrooms.
If you’re thinking about adding a bathroom in a flat or smaller property, you might consider a shower room or extra toilet rather than a full bathroom because space is critical to value. But in a bigger property, full-bathrooms plus a shower room or extra toilet are essential (especially in family homes).
According to the experts at Park & Bailey Real Estates, en-suite bathrooms are a big win and updated bathrooms are hugely attractive to prospective buyers (great motivation for home owners thinking of renovating!).
Another top tip: bathrooms are no longer considered purely functional but rather a space for rest and relaxation, which means that a clean, stylish bathroom can add a significant amount of value to your property.
Essentially, there is no downside to adding a bathroom – for you and those who will be using it, and for any future date when you hope to sell you property for maximum value.
