Does cleaning the bathroom feel like the absolute worst house chore ever invented? Maybe you’re just looking at things in the wrong light. In fact, this is one of the simplest rooms to clean!   Think about it: there’s running water available, the walls and floor are usually covered in tiles, and both the tapware and bathroom accessories are usually waterproof (or can otherwise be cleared away easily). There is usually no delicate furniture around that you must be really careful not to get wet. There is no other room in your house where you can literally splash water around without ruining anything!   Splashing water around is really not the right approach, however.

With over 25% of properties on the market for over 6 months in the UK, and nearly 10% on for almost a year, it is worth investing time in knowing what helps to rent a property and what your potential renters are looking for. We can see from the figures from Rightmove that these haven’t changed in the past few years, with changes between two and three percent each year that can be put down to general market fluctuations. Our property expert from a London estate agent has put together a few tips for improving the appeal of your property.
