The number of bedrooms in a property is typically the first metric by which it's judged, but buyers will be looking at how many bathrooms there are too. Practicality is key when you have a few bedrooms, so it could be worth knocking through a cramped box room to make an en suite.
If you're creating an additional bathroom, try to pick a space that's close to your existing water and sewerage pipes to lower plumbing costs and to keep disruption to the rest of the house to a minimum. Generally speaking, that will be above, below or adjacent to your existing bathroom facilities.
Renovating your bathroom can be expensive. Keep it simple and think about classic trends that won’t date when making plans. Could you make minor changes like re-grouting or replacing old taps instead of completely redoing the whole room?
A light and airy bathroom might be the best case scenario, but it's not possible for everyone. If you can't install a window, ensure there's proper ventilation with an extractor fan. On the other side of the scale, if your bathroom is overlooked, you'll want to swap out your regular clear window for a frosted one.
