Bathroom renovations: Big impact- little budget

It isn’t just an estate agent speak that kitchens and bathrooms go a long way to make a home. These integral rooms are the ones we expect to be modern and pristine. Which is why when undertaking a refurb a little goes a long way. Sometimes just because it’s new doesn’t mean it’s an attractive bathroom.  Read the full post on my experience of renovating a new build flat in Hackney, London. Let me know what you think of the final result.

I purchased a three bedroom new build flat on Mare Street, Hackney, a few years ago. As a distressed sale due to an illegal build (not this one thankfully), the developer had done a poor job fitting out the unit. The cheap bathroom was barely fit for purpose with a shower that just didn’t work. In addition, the boiler was squeezed into the ceiling area. Even though it was newly fitted there was no way we could attract the right buyer or tenant to it as it was.

With just a small budget to rectify this amateur developer’s mistakes, I wanted a bathroom that looked good but was hardy enough for demanding tenants. Before Salacia of London buying a bathroom was a tedious process that involved searching through catalogues of products to try to piece together a bathroom that worked. That’s exactly what I had to do to refresh this bathroom.

Despite the hassle, the resulting bathroom is one that’s modern, light and a long way from the unattractive bathroom originally fitted. For a similar bathroom take a look at the Fulham range. The Fulham is a bathroom suite that is simple, modern and yet high quality – exactly what landlords need.
