How can I renovate a bathroom on a shoestring budget?

Along with the kitchen, bathrooms are one of the most important assets of any property so it pays to invest wisely in their renovation. As with all property investment, careful consideration will help gain you the maximum return.

First National’s top tips for renovating on a limited budget are:
  • Your goal should be to make your bathroom bigger, better and brighter
  • Aim for glossy tiles on the walls as they have high perceived value
  • Choose matt or textured tiles on your floor – they look clean for longer and are less slippery.
  • Explore tile factories and online shopping outlets, instead of retail tile showrooms - savings can be huge
  • Consider your target buyer - cater to their style and storage needs
  • Use quality towels and home décor items to best present your renovation
