The smartest bathroom upgrade you can make

18 March 2022


If you’re thinking about selling your property, the chances are you’ve thought about taking on some renovations before you do.

Whilst market trends will likely be the major factor affecting your property market value, it is still worth making improvements to add additional value.

One of the most effective ways to boost property value is to invest in a bathroom renovation. The great news is that giving your bathroom a new lease on life doesn't have to break the bank or delay your property hitting the market.

With over 40 years’ experience in bathroom renovations, founder and managing director of Megasealed, Jacques Courtin, shares his valuable insights into the benefits of rejuvenating your bathroom prior to selling.

“Many homeowners dive headfirst into undertaking a full bathroom renovation prior to selling thinking this will deliver the best return on investment for their home,” says Jacques.

In reality, he says homeowners can easily overcapitalise on a full bathroom upgrade when there are less costly and more time effective ways to improve a bathroom without undertaking a complete overhaul.

He explains: “Extensive renovations can draw out the process of placing your home up for sale, meaning you may miss out key opportunities in the property market. Some potential buyers may even prefer to upgrade a bathroom themselves to meet their personal specifications or desires.”

As the saying goes, ‘sometimes less is more’ and this couldn't be truer when it comes to upgrading your bathroom. Cost-effective and meaningful repairs can add excellent value to your property prior to selling.

Jacques recommends Megasealed’s Regrouting Service as a smart and cost-effective option for those planning on selling in the next 1-2 months.

“This service is a fraction of the cost of a full bathroom retile. It involves removing old, discoloured grout and mould build up between your tiles and regrouting using our exclusive Megasealed product range. This service is also beneficial to addressing any potential for bathroom leaks resulting from old or decaying grout,” he says.

For sellers who may be looking to replace old or outdated bathroom tiles, he suggests the Megasealed tile over tile service:

“Rather than undertaking extensive demolition that has the potential to unearth other costly bathroom issues, adopt a tile over tile solution. It not only refreshes the bathroom space at a fraction of the cost but can prevent further issues from arising.”

As industry pioneers for over 25 years, Megasealed offers customised bathroom renovation services to fix leaks and restore your bathroom to a pristine condition without the need to remove tiles.
