Here’s how to Preserve your Rent Roll by Reducing the Cost of Rental Bathroom Maintenance
October 31, 2019 Inner Bath

The running and maintenance of a rental property or several rental properties is all about achieving a fine balance. If you cut costs and resort to quick-fixes, then you are going to end up in a cycle of perpetual issues and complaints from your tenants. However, if you invest extreme amounts of time and money into your rental property, then you’re unlikely to see a good return on investment or potentially any return at all, making the whole venture a bit pointless. When maintaining or updating your rental property bathroom, there are some smart investments which you can make to help you achieve this balance. Below are 3 of the best and smartest ways to transform your rental bathroom:


  • Get a New Toilet Seat
    Often people underestimate the value of a fancy toilet seat, perhaps because every bathroom has a toilet and so we think of it as nothing more than a functional item. However, a toilet seat is one of the main items which our eyes are automatically drawn to, and so it can majorly influence the user or tenant’s view of a bathroom. Rather than invest in an entire bathroom renovation which requires a complete rip out and dismantling, you should first consider the smaller changes that you can make to update your bathroom. Perhaps take a trip to Bunnings and see if they have a luxurious-looking wooden toilet seat or a sleek grey depending on what your interior aesthetic is.
  • Get the Shower or Bath Relined
    Perhaps the bath or shower in your rental property is looking pretty worn or is cracked and peeling to a point where it’s not only an eyesore but a hazard. The cost of getting a brand new bath or shower fitted is extensive, never mind the inconvenience that can cause to tenants. At Inner Bath and Shower, we can provide a long term solution that will not only fix any damage but will also transform your entire bathroom which tenants can use the very next morning with no destruction to tiles or the rest of the bathroom. Our premium acrylic inserts are finished to the highest quality and create an element of luxury within your bathroom. Also, all of our products come with a 10-year guarantee meaning this is a hassle-free, long term solution for the rejuvenation of your rental property.
  • Get a new Shower Head
    Again, this is a case of the little things having the potential to make the most significant difference. A new showerhead can instantly take your bathroom from feeling a bit drab to feeling like the bathroom of a fancy hotel. If you think about a cheap, white plastic shower compared with a sleek, silver wall mounted shower head which has adjustable sprays, you’re always going to prefer the latter. That’s exactly how current and potential tenants are going to feel, and it’s a relatively inexpensive way to improve the potential of your rental property.

At Inner Bath we can have your bath or shower relined, ready to use and looking brand new within 3 hours, meaning there will be no inconvenience to your tenants. If your tub or shower is showing signs of wear and tear or has been damaged, there’s no need to go through the hassle and expense of investing in a whole new bathroom.
