Thinking of selling your home? Here are the seven deadly sins of bad bathroom design trends you should avoid
We at Bespoke Bathroom Solutions came across this amazing article on the Realtor.com website. Entitled 7 Bathroom Design Trends Home Buyers Want to Flush Away, it looks at the trends you need to avoid, should you sell your home. In its Seven Deadly Sins of Bad Bathroom Design Trends, it has stated the following points:
- The All White Box;
- Overly funky colour schemes;
- Huge bathtubs;
- Dual sinks;
- Medicine cabinets;
- Subway tiles and nickel finishes.
On Homes Under The Hammer, you would have lost track of the times they have used Magnolia paint as a ‘cure all’ for interior design issues. This is true with their take on The All White Box. According to the article, it is a pain in the proverbials to clean. We think it feels like taking a bath in a fridge freezer (though the light stays on whilst the door is closed)
Minimalism is frowned upon, on the grounds that Realtor.com think it makes for a sparse bathroom. One that seems hardly used and soulless. Similarly frowned upon are over the top colour schemes. In other words, if you wish to sell your house, ditch the avocado bathroom suite.
With the average British home being smaller than US counterparts, the chances of seeing huge bathtubs and dual sinks are minimal. Both, according to their article have a low resale value. The bath could be replaced by a more modest one, and the space for your second sink could be better used elsewhere.
Medicine cabinets are passé according to their piece; they suggest open shelves and baskets. Subway tiles and nickel finishes are seen as outdated.
We at Bespoke Bathroom Solutions can think of a few other bad bathroom design trends that potential homeowners may frown about. What about having a carpet in your bathroom? Bathroom tiles on a roll like wallpaper? Badly positioned toilet roll holders?
