5 Plumbing Upgrades That Increase the Value of Your Home

Not only are the bathroom and kitchen two of the most used rooms in the home, they are also major considerations for home buyers. That’s why making practical plumbing improvements like these is a highly effective way to add value to your property.

Investing in these plumbing upgrades won’t leave you out of pocket, because they should add far more value to your home than their cost. Even if you are not looking to sell your property right now, you’ll gain from having new and improved features until you are ready to sell. 

1. A New Boiler 

Upgrading your boiler is a simple enhancement that you can make to add value to your home by 2% or around £8k. If a prospective buyer thinks they will have to replace the central heating system, it can be a huge off-put. Upgrading your boiler with a 7-10 year warranty is transferable to the new owner. 

A fully functioning, reliable and efficient heating system is an investment worth making for your time in the property as well as adding value to a future potential buyer. No one wants to buy a home with the worry of having to replace the boiler anytime soon; instead, take the simple step to give the next owner a secure and homely future. 

2. Get New Taps and Shower

New taps and fixtures come with improved performance as well as a stylish and modern aesthetic for your bathroom and kitchen, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Difficult to operate taps and toilets, or a trickling, outdated shower are definitely not selling points for any buyer! The more functional and elegant these key rooms are, the better. 

Upgrade your shower to a powerful digital pressure one, or one with more water jets for an enjoyable morning experience; replace your old leaky taps with shiny modern ones or even a new model of toilet that uses less water.

3. Update Your Fixtures

Replacing your old fixtures such as sinks, toilets and handles with new ones increases efficiency and makes for a cleaner, more inviting home; especially since they are used so often and can get easily worn, which decreases the desirability of a home. 

When left for a long time, old fixtures and parts will eventually need repairing. It’s much more efficient to replace them all at once than to upgrade as and when needed, especially when considering selling your home and avoiding any potential buyers seeing this as an issue or cost for them in the near future. 

4. Remodel Your Bathroom or Kitchen

A beautiful and up to date bathroom or kitchen is an ultimate selling point of a house for many people. If you have the means, remodelling your bathroom or kitchen (or both!) can seriously update the look and feel of your property, making it more appealing. Not to mention improving your day-to-day life in the meantime!

Choose a local Plumbing and Heating company that you can trust to upgrade your facilities and give your bathroom or kitchen a new look. Find out more about LKG Daughters’ bathroom services here for inspiration.

5. Switch to More Efficient Options

Why not reduce your monthly outgoings whilst adding to your future gain? Some simple changes to greener, more efficient options such as newer toilets and low flow shower heads and faucets, will save you money on bills as well as winning and spiking the interest of more people when it comes to selling the home; green homes are a high priority for lots of buyers!
