Bathrooms.com have discovered the shocking truth of the interior design trends that will instantly devalue your home; and it’s not always what you think. Wood panelling, built in bars, and – not quite nailing the current Pantone Greenery trend – aged ‘avocado’ bathrooms, are amongst those designs most likely to scare away any budding buyers.
Bathrooms.com’s research states that a massive 324,000 UK homes still have outdated avocado bathroom suites, and home buyers would look to cut at least £4,875 off the asking price of a property homing one of these tragic schemes.
Other design sins found in the study, include: woodchip, Artex ceilings, heavily patterned carpet, textured wallpaper, crazy paving, brick fireplaces, and built in wardrobes over the bed.
“More than half of the nation says a relaxing bath is their favourite way to unwind and de-stress, so we think everyone should have a bathroom they’re proud of; where they can relax, switch off and have a good soak at the end of a long day,” says Harshad Gorasia, commercial director, Bathrooms.com.
It’s time to scrap the avocado colour creations and opt for a luxurious, sophisticated scheme – go on, treat yourself!Bathrooms | bathrooms.com
