Home Living : February 22nd 2011
4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, February 22, 2011 Steam appeal: bathroom basics » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING A well-designed bathroom can be huge selling point for your home. When designing a good all-purpose bathroom, the most important thing to consider is space. A bathroom that doesn't feel cramped is going to be more appealing to prospective buyers. There are many ways to maximise the feeling of space in a bathroom without major changes to the layout or fittings. Floating vanities or toilets off the wall can make the bathroom seem larger because it shows more floor space. Frameless or semi-frameless shower screens also give the illusion of more space, as they don't create any visual barriers or block the light. As for colour schemes, it's safer to stick to white or neutral tones. Even though you may really like that aqua feature wall, a potential buyer may not, so it's a better idea to personalise your bathroom in non-permanent ways, such as with accessories or towels. It's important to make the bathroom as appealing as possible to a broad range of people, which means catering to all needs. So while you may not have any need for a bath, including one is safe bet. If it's the only bathroom in the house, you might want to put a bath in there, to cater for families. Storage is another key to creating a good bathroom, so be sure to include plenty of space for towels, cosmetics and cleaning products. If you want to go that extra mile, a few luxurious touches can't hurt either. Think heated towel rails or double basins. And with today's focus on sustainability and conserving our natural resources, some ''green'' features could also help. A cheap way to reduce power bills is adding dimmers to light switches, and introducing as much natural light as possible, with either windows or skylights.
