Property can come at a hefty price and many will save up for several years in order to get onto the property ladder. This may result in buyers settling for whatever they can afford but when it comes to selling again, certain issues can arise when it comes to the layout of your home.

According to a survey by Mira Showers, the layout of your home is very important when it comes to selling your home.

Bathrooms and kitchens are said to be two of the most important rooms in a home when looking to buy as these tend to be the most expensive to re-do.

That being said, it isn’t just the standard of these rooms that matter, it is also the location.

Having a bathroom that is accessed via the kitchen can knock off thousands of the asking price.

Bathrooms attached to kitchens are usually found in old terraced houses but they have become less appealing in the modern market with nearly half of Brits admitting they’d offer a staggering £7,000 less if they viewed a house with a bathroom attached to the kitchen.

More than a third of respondents to the survey said they would not put in an offer at all if the only bathroom in the house was only accessible through the kitchen.

Eighteen percent said they’d want to reduce the price even further by offering between £10,000 and £20,000 less.

Whilst many may not care about whether or not the bathroom comes off of the kitchen or whether it is downstairs or upstairs, it can create problems when you want to resell the property.
