The Benefits of Adding Another Bathroom to Your Home
Thursday, 25 March 2021

Are you thinking about upgrading your home and adding another bathroom? Perhaps you want to say goodbye to the daily morning squabbles over who showers next, or you’re keen for a space to luxuriate in peace. Whatever your reason, an extra bathroom can be a solid investment. Here are some of the reasons why.

Convenience

 
There’s no denying that another washroom makes life that little bit easier. You can say goodbye to queues outside the door and having to wait to go to the loo. If you’re considering adding a downstairs toilet, you’ll be relieved that you no longer have to scurry up the stairs every time nature calls. It will also make life easier for any elderly or less able-bodied people in your home. If you’re considering adding an en-suite bathroom, it’ll be a godsend in the middle of the night.
 

Adds Value

 
In adding another bathroom to your house, you may need to upgrade your boiler. This will cost you a bit of money, but in doing so you’ll be adding value to your property. According to Nationwide House Price Index, a second bathroom can add 5% on the average value of your home (as long as you’re not having to sacrifice another important room). Many buyers look out for more than one bathroom when house hunting, so you’ll be pushing up not only the sale price of your home but its desirability, too.
 

Privacy

 
Don’t underestimate the value of privacy in the bathroom. No longer will you be relaxing in a nice hot bath at the end of a long day and get a knock on the door from someone busting for the loo. You’ll be able to apply your make up or shave at leisure, luxuriate in the shower and even read a book on the toilet!
 

Great for guests

 
The luxury of an additional bathroom is something that everyone benefits from. If you’re adding one in downstairs, you’ll no longer need to make sure upstairs is tidy every time you have a guest who might need to use the facilities. If you have friends or family staying over, they’ll love the convenience and privacy that comes with the additional space.
 

Handy in an Emergency

 
Having one toilet, shower and bath is all well and good, but what happens if something gets blocked or stops working? Cue emergency washing at the neighbour’s house. If you’ve got a second bathroom, you’ve always got a back-up should things go wrong.
 
As you can see, there are some huge benefits to adding an extra bathroom to your house, so if it’s something you can afford, what are you waiting for?!
