Why complete a bathroom renovation?

Home owners are often concerned with the kitchen and living spaces of the house, and work to make them more inviting to guests, more comfortable to live and obviously to display the unique style of the owner. But bathrooms are often considered the deal breaker for prospective buyers.
Renovating and redesigning your bathroom will give you a more elegant and comfortable space, it can transform your bathroom from a utility, to a true place of relaxation and enjoyment.

What are some common bathroom additions?

Baths, Bench Space, & Basins are all common additions when looking to redesign your bathroom. Baths are by far the most common addition, particularly in modern home designs that often overlook comfort in order to save space. Adding basins, and increasing bench space is another common addition as this can make your bathroom more comfortable for day to day use. Fixutres and fittings, like mirrors, taps or faucets, heated towel racks and proper drainage are not to be overlooked, everyone has expereienced the difference between a high quality showerhead and a low quality, low pressure one, and simple pleasures like these are really what renovators are looking for.
