Here is a lovely little original Victorian Baby Bath we restored in our workshop.

Baby bath re enamelled

These baby baths were originally used to bathe babies in hospitals all over the country. They are quite lovely. The unusual legs makes the bath an ideal size to bathe a baby in.  However when Hospitals were upgraded most were thrown out and modern bathrooms installed.

So this little baby bath is quite unusual now. As you can see the bath re enamelled inside and out along with the legs restored has put the bath into great condition.

Baby Bath Re enamelled

This bath has beed put up FOR SALE by the client recently. So someone could purchase this for £2500 plus vat.

How Do You Increase the Value of Your Home for Very Little Money

Having your Bathroom Suite resurfaced should increase the value of your home.  It will help your suite look brand new, clean and fresh. At the very least new bathroom taps can help update and improve the bathroom in readiness of a quick sale.

Like many people, you may be looking to sell up and move house. If so, you’ll want to ensure you give yourself the best possible chance of receiving or even exceeding the asking price for your current property.

Today’s housing market is scary enough for most people. The possibilities of receiving a bid that matches or exceeds the value of your property can be impossible to obtain. If you are offering potential buyers exactly what they are looking for you are in with a chance of reaching your desired sale price. For example, a poorly decorated bath-room or a cluttered bedroom can often be enough to put off many people from considering an offer for your home. You might already be aware that certain areas of your house could benefit from being spruced up, but you simply can’t afford the outlay required to renovate them. As a result, the offending room is often left in its existing condition additional items of furniture or bric-a-brac are utilized to hide the room’s shortcomings. Quite frequently the offending room becomes a storage center.

Unfortunately, this might well end up costing you money & perhaps damaging the potential value of your property. However, this need not occur, especially if the difficulties are being caused by your bathroom.

As the bathroom is the most visited room in the house. Along with the Kitchen it is considered vital that the bathroom most impresses the buyer. If you have lived in your existing property for a number of years, there’s a good chance that your bathroom will have remained the same since you first moved in. Perhaps you renovated it yourself years ago to suit your own tastes.

You might well think that having a pink sink and toilet is acceptable and common. There is nothing that will put off a potential buyer more than dated coloured sanitary-ware in a bathroom! Combine this with a dull, worn peach bath and you may as well wave your house sale goodbye.

Potential buyers have their own ideas with regards to their perfect bathroom. Factors such as flooring and types of storage are important to them. Many want a clean, modern or traditional Victorian white bathroom suite with chrome fittings and ample storage. Resurfacing a coloured suite to white can help achieve the look most buyers are looking for.

Regardless of different tastes the Bathroom must look clean and fresh. Even a nicely tiled and floored bath-room will not impress the buyers if the bath is worn, stained and looks dull or dirty. Even marked taps will put them off a potential sale. Luckily this is something that can be rectified fairly easily and not necessarily expensively.

Taste and style of baths or tap fittings can be as varied as the owners. Generally speaking, as long as your bathroom is clean and fresh looking with bright fixtures and fittings, a potential buyer will go away without having to worry about completely ripping out the bathroom and starting from scratch. By giving them something to work with, you are significantly increasing your chances of selling the property.

Achieving the above is not an expensive task. Resurfacing a complete bathroom suite can cost around £600. Not ripping out the old bathroom and not having to redecorate will save you not only in time and money but also a lot of organizing of different workmen and an awful lot hassle. So it’s well worth doing. You may only need to have the bath resurfaced. In this instance it will only cost around £300 and you can end up with a lovely new looking bathroom.

Once you bathroom suite is looking pristine again you can look at investing in some lovely accessories. This need not cost a lot of money and at least you can take these with you once you sell. Lovely luxury towels, some scented candles and other bath time accessories all help your potential buyer paint a picture of themselves relaxing comfortably in your bathroom.

If you’re looking to sell your house over the next few weeks or months, make sure you take a good look around. Invite a neighbour or friend round to gauge their opinion before you put your home on the property market. Get several estate agents around to gauge their opinion also. It is their job to help you sell and a good agent will give good advice.  Do clear out all your clutter. Remember, a pink bathroom might be gorgeous to you, but to a potential buyer, it might not be as desirable.

If at the end of the day if you decide not to sell all is not lost. You will have a lovely luxurious bathroom to relax in. It will not have cost a fortune to accomplish & it will be very likely that your home will have increased in value due to the small amount of renovation work carried out. It really is a “win, win” scenario. A glass of something nice might be in order whilst you relax in your bathtub.

Renovating your Bathroom

Bath Renovations and restorations in London and Edinburgh

Bathrooms are a little like cars. Compact models condense the basic functions into an economical package. The larger models put a premium on spaciousness and luxury and the middle-of-the-range versions try to balance cost and comfort. As with cars, you generally pay more for a larger bath and bathrooms, but you also have more options. Area size, however, isn’t always key; bathrooms of all sizes can be functional and stylish. The challenge is to let your personal preferences drive your design without exceeding the space available and budget limits.


Any bathroom renovation is based on planning and selection of fixtures. On the planning side, you may not have the space for a bath the size of a Hummer, but perhaps you can find the extra space you need to be comfortable. In the same way, your budget may not allow for luxuries such as his and hers steam showers, but standard, well chosen accessories can make a huge difference.


Above is a relatively small bathroom which has been very well designed to accommodate a very luxurious look.

Plans

In planning and budgeting for a bathroom upgrade, you should start by determining how much space you have. Whether you are renovating your existing bathroom space, extending a little or you have the luxury of starting from scratch by adding on or by converting another room, your bathroom’s overall shape and size will likely fall into one of three categories:

1. Standard Bathroom:

*  A standard size bathroom is a rectangle starting at approximately 1,5m x 2m 1,5m x 3m and can be as big as 2m x 3m or 2,5m x 3m. In a standard sized bathroom there is space for a basin with a vanity, a toilet, a bath tub and if you are lucky a small separate shower.Often the shower is incorporated over the bath in a standard bathroom

2. Guest Toilet:

* A guest toilet or cloakroom is normally a square half-bathroom, generally 1m x 1,5m, housing just the essentials; a basin and a toilet.

3.  Master Bathroom:

* A master bathroom is large and roomy, often as big as 30 square metres or more. It is generally en suite although it can be the main family bathroom. The extra space allows for indulgences such as a large freestanding bath tub, a dual shower, separate vanities, a sitting area with large furniture pieces, storage and large windows or skylights. The shape of the master bathroom can vary as it is rather a large area.

Fitting and Fixtures

No matter what the actual dimensions of your bathroom, it’s the arrangement of the fixtures within the bathroom that determines how big or how small the room feels. A modestly sized bath tub smartly configured can feel spacious, while a large bath tub poorly planned can feel cramped. Ensure that there is enough space around and in front of the toilet bowl. This will make sitting on the throne a comfortable experience. The height of the basin should fit the user, especially if you are taller or shorter than most people. For double-bowl vanities make sure there is enough space between the two. A bath tub should be large enough to be used comfortably.  Shower doors should always open outwards into the bathroom and should be big enough to be used with ease.
