Thinking of selling - Tapware is the simplest, cheapest ways to make your property sparkle

03 Aug 2023

If you are thinking of selling your home then one thing that will make your house sparkle is to upgrade the tapware throughout.

As we know styles change and tapware tarnishes over a period of time.

It won't cost a lot of money depending on the replacement tapware you choose, but come the day of the photoshoot, open home or auction, the tapware lifts the appearances in so many rooms of your house.

Think about these places to upgrade the tapware in your Brisbane home.

If your Brisbane home and /or kitchen is upwards of 5 years old, then there might be an aging mixer tap or other older tapware that can be modernised. If you have separate taps for hot and cold water on your kitchen sink then prospective buyers might see the kitchen sink as inconvenience.

Updated the tapware with modern, clean shining or brushed steel might be the extra point of impression.

If you have been at an open home in recent years, particularly aging investment properties then you would have seen the classic, last century white, or other colour hard-to-grip plastic tap handles. The labels for the hot and cold have long since departed making it hard to even tell which tap is which. Time for an upgrade to the tapeware and spout.

In the shower or over the bath, the taphead, spout and shower rose can be easily upgraded for a brand new look, even more so if the you include a hand held shower. This entices home buyers looking for convenience.

As with the bathroom, the vintage or original tapware takes away from appearances and convenience so desirable for home buyers.
Replace with modern tapware and make an impression. New tapware It is even more important if you have upgraded the tile work or repaired tiles to make your ensuite sparkle.

it would surprise you how little it costs to replace a toilet cistern. An aging "classic" unattractive toilet cistern made of plastic can be replaced easily with a lesser volume ceramic system with half and full flush. It's clean, modern and water efficient.

While you are at it, replacing an stained or chipped toilet pedestal says I'm new, I'm clean and hygienic... and ready to be the throne for a new owner.

The classic swivel arm spout that features in so many Australian laundries are typically well past the use by date within a couple of years. Leakage and water stains exacerbated by pressure that makes water splash around the laundry is you might have become used to, but prospective owners won't like that. Even better to replace this with a modern set of tapware and spout so that come laundry day it seems like less of a chore.

Garden taps are often forgotten when upgrading tapware, but if the aging, they might be leaking and have worn out seals. While you might not replace them it might be time to stop the drips and get us to replace the seals at least. So popular in the modern garden tap systems are the "ball clock" type taps where a quarter turn from off to "full on" replaces the tiresome turning that seems to require a 20 count to full pressure.

No matter the nature of your tapware concerns, aesthetic, or replacement you can trust the professional plumbing team at Aptus Plumbing and Gas are standing by to take your property to the next level of presentation. Call or email us today.
