There’s more than one reason to renovate. The primary reason for renovating may be to improve, update, or redesign your existing home. But renovating isn’t just about making your home look and function better. Renovating can have the added benefit of increasing your home’s value. And for the main bathroom specifically, it’s really important to choose new fixtures that are packed with features and have broad appeal.

Here are some key product choices that will easily and effectively boost the value of your main bathroom, and in turn, your entire home.

Upgrade the Shower

People consider the shower to be one of the most important factors in the bathroom. It makes sense; the shower is one of the first things you use in the morning or the last at the end of the day. It’s a key part of our lives, and living with a bad shower can really affect your mood. In contrast, a great shower is an everyday luxury activity that can be hard to come by.

If you’re in the market for something new, consider investing in a twin shower. The majority of twin showers are adjustable, able to cater to varying heights and sizes. The Grohe Power & Soul Twin Shower includes four spray patterns that can be mixed and matched for 16 different spray combinations. It lets you pick your ideal shower experience within a sleek profile that’s sure to impress. Twin showers are an easy option for a retrofit, provided the outlets match up with your existing plumbing.

Update the Vanity

The vanity is often the unsung hero of the main bathroom. It’s a crucial element of your space that can be easily overlooked when planning a renovation, but don’t make that mistake. The vanity is the focal point of your bathroom and provides essential storage to ensure your space stays clutter-free.

If the first priority of your vanity is storage, the second should be aesthetic. The Posh Solus Wall hung Vanity Open Shelf ticks both boxes, sporting a minimalist style, plenty of storage space, and an open shelf for easy access to store your favourite possessions. It comes in variable sizes to cater to all homes.

Transform the Toilet

The toilet is another highly frequented bathroom product, and it can make a big difference in the room’s value. Nothing ages a bathroom more quickly than a tired toilet well past its use-by date. And if your toilet is old, you could be literally flushing money away – older toilets are less environmentally friendly, using far more water with each flush. Adding a new toilet can significantly increase your bathroom’s comfort factor.

The American Standard Cygnet shows off a new norm in toilet design – rimless technology. A rimless design reduces the buildup of germs and is significantly more hygienic and easier to clean than a standard toilet suite. For a true technological investment, the Roca In-Wash® Inspira Smart Toilet is cutting edge. It has a light to direct users in the dark as well as washing and drying functionality, with the ability to adjust both water temperature and positioning. It’s the highest standard of hygiene and technology seen in Australian bathrooms.

Boost the Bath

A true relaxation destination, a bath is a great opportunity to add value to your bathroom. When it comes time to sell your home, a bath will appeal to a variety of different buyers; for families with small children or animals who use the bath for practical reasons, and for those who seek the luxury that an amazing soak provides.

Make a good impression with the Kado Lux Petite Freestanding Bath, which comes in an eye catching Black/White finish perfect for the growing trend of colour within bathrooms. Alternatively, an inset bath like the Kaldewei Puro can also be a great option. Inset baths have a functional ledge that can be used for storing necessary items, or as a seat for adults when bathing young children.
