After considerable experience in the design industry at Managing Director level, Mike Manders has founded Nôsa, inspired by modern European design.  Here’ he shares tips for getting value from investing in your bathroom

Adding Value to Your Property

Every 8-10 years, you’ll need to make a new investment into your bathroom, to ensure you’re not only maintaining the value of your home but also adding value for future buyers, by increasing the desirability of your home overall.

Redesigning and upgrading your bathroom, encourages valuation impact – If you update your bathroom, studies have shown this could be anywhere from 4-5%, on top of your home’s current value, a far higher yield than other home improvement projects.

Ensure you’re keeping up to date with bathroom design trends and features that buyers are looking for, whilst making choices that suit your lifestyle needs.

These include keeping a bath in place; after a big move to having walk-in showers, a no bath bathroom, is currently seen as more undesirable. Energy-efficient fixtures and new tech devices for entertainment and wellness are also popular and fun for the family.

Mike Manders commented Quite often families remove the bath to create a shower space, even if you don’t use the bath often, it is well worth keeping one, and with the addition of a shower head above, you can maximise your space. Bathtubs are one of the most essential features of any bathroom. Not only do they provide a place to relax and unwind, but they also add value to your home.

The House of Nôsa

The launch collection features a contemporary range of stone and freestanding baths, available from £1,000. Further luxury items include vanity units, taps, showers, home accessories and designer fixtures.

Nôsa promises to be a premier destination for all your bathroom and accessory needs, making it the perfect home for your design refurbishment and you don’t have to have an interior designer on hand to help you – the Nôsa team are there to support you throughout your design journey.

Here are Mike’s Top Tips for Renovating and Refurbishing Your Bathroom

Keep Your Bath and Upgrade

Unwind, relax, and enjoy a new bathing experience, when upgraded to a luxurious freestanding bath. From circular contemporary designs to fluted and traditional shapes, Nôsa can perfectly compliment your current lifestyle needs. For ease of fitting, our collection is available in a variety of sizes too.

Statement Vanities

You can never have enough storage space. Vanity units have seen a big resurgence, due in part, to their space saving properties and stunning finishes. At Nôsa, we have created an extensive launch collection. We understand how important storage is for all modern households, whilst attaining a designed focal point.

Enjoy a variety of designs and finishes to match your interior scheme, from matte white stone to dark oaks, anthracite, cappuccino, marble, and cream finishes.

Upgrade Your Lighting

There have been many new advancements in bathroom lighting including more integration into mirrors, and through installing new fixtures, you can instantly brighten up your space. Lighting also creates important ambiance, crucial for unwinding after a long day at work.

Storage Solutions

Floating shelfs, cabinets and built-in shelves, all help to provide more storage options. Basins with storage options and vanities, coupled with organisational features like draw dividers further help to appeal to buyers, whilst also being highly practical for your daily rituals and life.

Energy-Efficient Upgrades

Consider installing energy-efficient appliances like low-flow toilets and water-saving showerheads. These upgrades not only save money on utility bills and home costs, but also appeal to environmentally conscious buyers.

Modern Fixtures

Easily update outdated items with new taps, showerheads, and hardware. Many have eco-conscious benefits too.


If you have the space, consider upgrading to a luxurious and spacious, walk-in shower with glass enclosures. Adding a rain showerhead will help to create your own home, spa-like experience, and cleansing ritual.

Mix and Match Materials

Add instant character and individuality with different material options, from marble, woods, quartz and metals to stunning porcelain tiles and geometric patterns. Express yourself by adding more fun detailing.
