Renovation work can cost a lot of money, which homeowners may not get back when the property goes on the market. ScS has partnered with webuyanyhouse.co.uk to share what to “avoid” when wanting to add value to a home. According to the experts, freestanding baths are “unattractive to buyers”.
They said: “Freestanding baths look great in social media posts, but they often come with a lot of practical issues that make them unattractive to buyers.
“They are far higher maintenance than normal varieties.
“You may need extra room under your floor for additional pipes and plumbing.
“If these pipes leak, they can be expensive to access and can create bad smells.”
On cold winter months, log burners can make a room feel cosy.
They also look great in homes.
However, according to the experts, many buyers try to avoid them.
They said: “They require a lot of fuel, which can be expensive, and you need somewhere to store the wood, which takes up extra space.
“There’s also the risk of smoke damage and marking decorated walls, which buyers won’t want to inherit.”
