There are lots of different ways to add value to a home; one of the more satisfying has to be a bathroom renovation.

If you are looking for inspiration, here are some ideas for creating the bathroom of your dreams. For further assistance, look no further than B&Q’s ideas and advice section; a great place to start planning your own bathroom improvements.
A swish new shower
Modern showers have come a long way since their introduction into our homes and there is now a wide variety of stylish and practical showers and shower enclosures to suit any budget. If space is at a premium, an over bath shower with an attractive screen is the obvious and simplest solution with options aplenty. A power shower gives an invigorating start to the day, while a rain shower head delivers the ultimate luxury showering experience. Or, why not treat yourself to a new digital shower unit, offering state of the art personalised temperature control, operational from your smart phone?
If you are lucky enough to have a little more space, a stand-alone shower cubicle affords easy access in and out for all ages and abilities. Choosing this option could enhance any future home valuation as many people prefer a separate shower. Our buyer’s guide sections can help you to make the right choice for your home and family.
A second sink
A second sink might seem like an unnecessary luxury, but it could prove to be a blessing in a busy household. No more jostling or waiting patiently for your turn to brush your teeth. A double basin would be an appealing feature in any modern bathroom and could be fitted using the same water pipes, maximising the available space. Alternatively, choose two identical sinks situated side by side. Our bathroom planner can help to plan and create your ideal layout within your existing bathroom.

Storage can be a huge issue, especially in smaller homes, and bathrooms can easily become cluttered and messy. The average family uses a multitude of various toiletry and beauty products and, along with the everyday bathroom essentials, these all need a home. Luckily, there are plenty of storage options available to combat bathroom clutter and having adequate storage helps massively when it comes to cleaning.
Choose from either built-in or free-standing cabinets in a range of exciting designs. If space is at a premium, or if the room is a strange shape, then bespoke units tailored to your needs make an ideal solution. Clever shelving design will make the most of bare walls and empty corners. A well-fitted, neat and tidy bathroom can certainly help to improve any home valuation.
Some older houses may cling on to the colours of days gone by; remember the avocado, peach or brown bathroom suites? Well, don’t panic, they are not making a comeback (not yet anyway!). These days, we tend to favour more neutral tones in the bathroom, but that certainly doesn’t equate to bland or boring. Consumers now have a huge choice of styles and colours when it comes to wall and floor tiles and can complement these using a wide range of fixtures and accessories, whether you favour contemporary or more traditional decor.
A whole new room
Finally, if you are fortunate enough to have spare space, you may want to extend or even create a brand new bathroom, wet room or cloakroom. This is a sure-fire way to improve the price of your home and future proof it for generations to come.
