Appealing plumbing features that can add value to your home

Considering adding some or all of the following can make a difference to both how your home works for you now, and the price you can ask for it should you decide to sell in the future.

An en suite or shower room 

Many newbuild homes come with en suites and have done for many years, so if you add one to your property you’ll be in a better position to compete with other homes on the market. An en suite or additional shower room appeals to many modern families who have a higher demand for hot water and enjoy the convenience of an extra upstairs bathroom, particularly if they have children or for when they have guests to stay.

Integrated appliances

If you are thinking of having your kitchen updated, whether because you’re extending or because your current kitchen needs new units, it’s wise to consider having integrated appliances fitted. This appeals to buyers as it reduces the cost of moving home as appliances such as a dishwasher are included. It also removes the hassle factor of having to move appliances into the property and having to work out if they will fit under the counter. Integrated appliances are generally considered smarter, and a good mark of a well-equipped, modern kitchen. 

New boiler

A new boiler is always a good investment, bringing with it many benefits to your home for both now and the future. If your current boiler is old or not working as effectively, upgrading it to a new unit means it will be more energy-efficient, helping your homes EPC rating should you decide to sell in the future. A newer boiler also provides extra reassurance to potential buyers as they won’t worry about having to pay out for a boiler soon after moving, as they might with an old unit.


As even smaller houses are now usually built with a downstairs toilet, there will always be a ceiling on the asking price of your property if you don’t have a toilet downstairs. Cloakrooms can be fitted in a small space, such as under the stairs or behind the kitchen, or even using a small part of an integrated garage. Having this work carried out gives your home immediate points to potential buyers compared to properties without a downstairs toilet. And for the time you remain in your house, it will save you countless trips up and down the stairs to the bathroom!
