Does a matching suite add more value than a non matching suite

I have a shell bath and sink but a modern square toilet. Would it add value to my house (as I am selling up) to have a matching suite?

  • I would say its more likely to add saleability rather than value! Buyers would prefer to have a matching suite, if its one less job they have to do when moving in they are more likely to make an offer!

  • Hi, We would not be able to comment on the value part of having a fully matching suite as after all adding value to something would mean adding an additional feature in some way, and it would totally be dependant on an individuals perception, it may bother some people but it may also not bother others. We would say in this scenario it would increase the saleability of your home which means it will look more attractive to potential buyers and therefore would increase your chances of selling your home. We hope this helps.

  • I am an Interior Designer and whilst some people like 'shell' style bathroom suites I think having all the same type of suite is better. Shell style suites were sold as the cheapest models available from a large DIY chain in the 1990s and many people associate them with both cheapness and being 'old' (even new and/or expensive ones!). As long as you don't spend too much I think you'd do well to match the sink and bath to the toilet if you can. Remember, only if it's a reasonable investment. There's no point spending a fortune if you're moving!

  • Having an ugly bathroom suite can actually help sell your house. What wife doesn't want to have a brand spanking new bathroom of her choice? So if the husband agrees that the bathroom is awful then she will get what she wants. If you put in a new bathroom suite and they don't like it, they will just look elsewhere, because no one is going to change a brand new bathroom.
