Home Buyers put off by old Bathrooms & Kitchens



Out-of-date bathrooms & kitchens are one of the top reasons a potential home buyer may withdraw an offer, new research by shower & taps supplier Bristan has found.  The survey looked at factors that influence buyers.  It revealed that 57% of buyers would reduce their offer & 8% would pull out altogether due to bad taste or out-of-date bathrooms & kitchens.  This came second to poor energy efficiency ratings, with 59% saying they would reduce their offer & 16% saying they would withdraw their offer.  Mark Stratford, head of new product development at Bristan said "Government continues to incentivise first time buyers to get on the property ladder, while families with younger generations moving out are looking to downsize.  Understanding the impact that simple design choices, such as kitchen or bathroom taps can have is crucial to ensuring a house sale doesn't fall through due to avoidable factors.  "Add to this the rise of home improvement programmes and interior style magazines, and todays home buyer has a greater awareness of trends and designs than ever before.  As this research shows, they are likely to be unwilling to settle for bland and boring decors as they search for their dream home" The Plumbing People in Clayton-le-moors offer a free measure & design service.  The Plumbing People work together with The Kitchen People, Creative Bedrooms & Choice Tiles to offer a full range of products in Accrington.

Bathroom Queries? Ask Len, Our Bathroom Specialist in Burnley!



Question:

We currently have a traditional basin with pedestal and separate toilet and would like to modernise our bathroom to include more storage options, what would you suggest?

 

Answer:

We often get asked this one!  There are loads of great ideas out there, it all depends what you want the feel of your bathroom to be.  You could plump for a wall to wall continuous furniture run or separate free standing furniture units.  We would advise the latter if your bathroom is short on space, as you will be able to create storage without hindering the overall feel of your room.  If you have been looking into bathrooms for sale in Blackburn, you will understand the amount of thought which goes into designing your bathroom, and sorting out storage should be no different!

Bathroom Queries? Ask Len, our Tile Specialist in Burnley!



Question:

We want a new bathroom but have previously been blighted with leaking shower trays. Do you have any suggestions?

 

Answer:

There are many problems that can be associated with a leaking tray as there are several different types of tray available, and unfortunately some are better than others.  If you have previously used a plastic tray with a chipboard bottom, then you may have experienced what we refer to as ‘sag’, due to the below par strength of these materials.  This is particularly evident when tiny gaps develop which then allow water through, creating a bigger problem.  Although stone resin trays can be much more substantial, they are also prone to problems, including chips and tarnishing over time.

Your Bathroom Showroom Lancashire’s Top 3 Trends for 2013



1. Organic and eco-friendly

Recently there has been a push to become greener, and this year is no different.  Bathroom designs incorporating more natural and eco-friendly options are right on trend in 2013, and mixing this eco feel with a contemporary vibe seems to be very popular.  If you have been searching for a bathroom supplier Blackburn wide, then you will understand the thought which goes into designing a bespoke bathroom.  Although there is a push to become more environmentally conscious, this does not mean that you have to compromise on style.  Speak to us about a range of low water usage taps and toilets, and don’t forget to add layers – rugs, towels and plants, to create the perfect blend of eco-friendly and contemporary style.

Looking for Fitted Bathrooms in Padiham? Try a Wet Room!



With a large array of styles to suit everyone, wet rooms are becoming increasingly popular, and they even add value to your home!  They are a great option if you have been searching for bathrooms for sale in Oswaldtwistle, and are looking for something innovative and trendy.

 

In the past, wet rooms have been seen to be quite old fashioned.  More recently however, they are appearing in style trends all around, so don’t miss out!  A wet room is essentially a shower room minus the shower screen and tray, housing a fully tiled shower area.  This leaves a lot of room for you to put your style stamp on your bathroom, as a wet room offers more room for personalization, not less!  If your bathroom is on the small side, it may be wise to install a shower screen to prevent everything being sprayed with the shower!
