Is having a downstairs bathroom costing you money?

Is having a downstairs bathroom costing you money?

A Direct Line Home Insurance Survey has indicated that having a downstairs bathroom could knock tens of thousands of the value of your home.

It is also quite likely to put off prospective buyers as they prioritise downstairs living space.

According to the survey, 44% of adults said a downstairs bathroom would put them off a property. Estate agents often advise homeowners to move the bathrooms upstairs to create more space on the found floor BEFORE listing their property.

There is a solution at hand that local builders like us can help you develop, by adding a rear extension to house a first-floor bathroom and re purposing the space downstairs to house additional family living space.

Thinking about the best use of the space you have and extending it, is what we do, considering all aspects of your family and the space you live in.

If you are considering this kind of work it is also vital you inform your insurance company of these changes that may involve amendments to your electrics, plumbing or structural situation in your home.
