January’s edition of Swansea Life has included a special feature on spectacular bathrooms provided by Dawsons Property.
Here is the feature …
If you ever wondered how important a quality bathroom is to a home consider that the average person spends 18 months of their life in there.
A lovely kitchen is important and a comfortable living room may be crucial, but it is the bathroom where most of us actually start and finish the day.
And when it comes to investing in upgrading or renovating your bathroom it is money very well spent.
“Giving your bathroom a makeover can dramatically increase the value of your home,” insisted Dawsons’ Senior Partner Chris Hope.
“Because taking extra time to renovate the bathroom will allow you to recoup most, if not all of the money that you invest in the renovation once it comes to sell.
“It’s all about ending up with a room that is that much more attractive and functional as well as being that much more hygienic.”
Here we look at five different bathrooms that have put added value to each property.
