I received an email the other day from Darren, he wanted to know how the value of a property would be affected if he decided to replace his bath with a shower cubicle. It’s a good question, and i’m sure others have been in a similar situation.
Every bathroom remodel is unique. We encourage you to look at pictures and see what suits your taste. Choosing some quirky, fun, eccentric, classic or funky accents can make a big difference to the final product.
A home’s plumbing system is obviously very important, but nobody really likes the idea of calling plumbing repair services. Plumbing repair services can be expensive, especially if you need to repair hundreds or even thousands of Rands’ worth of damage. It’s understandable if people want to put off calling a plumber for as long as possible, but that can make the situation far worse.
As much as you may not want to call a plumber when it’s not an emergency, doing so could actually save you money in the long run. Here are just a few reasons why.
Major water shedding to be implemented: eThekwini Municipality - Should You Repair a Dripping Faucet?
The KwaZulu-Natal public have to brace themselves for the major water restrictions in most parts of the province.
Spokesperson for eThekwini Municipality Ednick Msweli says bulk water supplier Umgeni Water will implement the water shedding strategy to save water.
Msweli says the public should expect six to eight hours of no water a day. He says the implementation comes as the mother dam Hazelmere is experiencing a severe low level of water.
“The little bit of rain we had last night was not enough, in the case of Ethekwini. The Hazelmere dam is still very low, so therefore we are having to move to the next stage of curtailment,” said Msweli.
In addition, Msweli says Umgeni Water will have to cut more on the water supply as there is less water now left to distribute to the people.
This implementation means some areas may run out of water or otherwise less water will come out of the taps.
Over the years, the bathroom has earned a reputation as an area unworthy of attention, probably because it has always been regarded as no more than a room in which to wash. Nobody can deny that this is still its most important function but, nevertheless, it seems a poor excuse for creating a whole generation of inhospitable bathrooms which offer very little in the way of comfort or ambience.
There’s a strong argument that can be put forward for any room when it comes to remodeling, but the number of reasons when it comes to the bathroom area perhaps top all others. If you are considering making a home improvement in 2015, a bathroom renovation should perhaps be the first thing you should consider, with the potential to increase your home’s value and make it more attractive to potential buyers, in addition to improving performance and maximizing the amount of available space.
