Before buying a home it is important to pay attention to certain things. A lot of time and money can be saved by asking the right questions and keeping an eye out to any red flags. The bathroom is no exception. Below are a few things to look out for.
Amount of Natural light
Not only will natural light save you money in the long run, it will instantly make the room and you feel better. The size and type of window will play a big role on how much natural light will come in. For example, a big double glazed window will be the best option to keep an area bright. Don’t forget to check whether the windows open smoothly as these are not cheap to replace.
Does The Look Match Your Interest?
See if the style of bathroom is what you want. Of course not every detail will be, such as a questionable colour of the walls. This can be overlooked however, if you want a more modern type feel then a tradition style bathroom then look out for certain features, and vice versa. Again you don’t want to spend a fortune redecorating the whole bathroom. See the layout of the room, the ceiling height and view.
Any sign of damp should not be overlooked. Look at the walls, ceilings and windows. If so this can be warning of a leak. The ceiling can also indicate structural damage if you notice any cracks. If you’re not sure, why not hire a professional to look over these things. This way you are protected before you decide on buying the home.
Turn the taps on to decide whether the hot water is working. If the water flow is not as expected, it will take a long time to fill up a bath. Good water pressure is important. If you want mixers taps which mix hot and cold water then see if that is the case or two taps, one for hot and the other for cold.
