Bathrooms Renovations Burwood

It’s hard to believe how much Burwood has changed during the past century.  Where once it was a beautiful collection of peaceful market gardens and small farm holdings, today it is a sprawling suburb with a surprisingly industrial feel to it for an inner eastern suburb.

We don’t want to dwell too much on the negatives, but if you’re honest with yourself you will acknowledge there is a reason why they stuck the Royal Institute for the Blind all the way out here in Burwood, and it’s not because our fair suburb is so convenient to the city centre.

To put it another way, there’s also a reason why our suburb is one of the few in Melbourne that Wikipedia doesn’t include any photographs of.

Yes indeed we have come a long way since those days when the place was a tranquil verdant oasis of market gardens.  Forgive us for feeling nostalgic, but for those of us who have lived our whole lives in Burwood, it is an absolute travesty what has been allowed to happen.

For us, it is too late to think about moving, but we certainly wouldn’t blame any of the younger folk for upping stakes.  What we can tell you from our long experience as a property experts is that if you do want to move to greener pastures, you’ve got Buckley’s chance of getting a decent price for your current home if you have a dodgy old bathroom.

It is fair to say that the bathroom renovations of Burwood are typically in an even more sorry state than the suburb itself.  But buyers are unforgiving when it comes to choosing a home that is right for their families, so the clear message is that you either have to renovate or be prepared to accept renovator prices for your home if you sell it.

You may be tempted to save a buck or two by tackling the big reno project yourself, but we would advise against that.  We’ve seen so many awful renovation mistakes during my inspections that we can tell you the only way to go about this properly is to find bathroom renovations designers in Burwood who can give it the professional touch that ensures you get maximum return on your investment.
