No matter how amazing your home looks, an unkempt bathroom can ruin any good impression you’ve made on a buyer. Even if your bathrooms are perfectly clean, if you’re selling your home, you may want to think about revamping in terms of decor. Here are simple bathroom staging ideas that can really turn a practical space into an attractive selling point.
Keep some items hidden
No one wants to walk into a beautiful washroom and see a plunger, a jug of Clorox, or a tower of magazines. To stage your home, clear the counter of makeup and toothpaste, and set out a small vase of flowers and a hand towel. Invest in a dispenser with a brushed-nickel pump to match the finish of your faucet instead of the disposable clear soap dispensers.
You can’t go wrong with a simple, mostly white or neutral look. Put your money toward new, fluffy, white towels and then either fold them neatly in a stack or roll them up and place them in an attractive basket. Adding a white orchid can also up the spa feel.
Address the issues
Call in a plumber if you can’t stop the constant dripping from the bathroom sink and shower or if the toilet is constantly running. Addressing these small issues will limit the impression that your equipment is old or faulty, or both. Be ready and aware that buyers will turn the faucets on and off to see what kind of water pressure you have.
Consider the curtain
Hang your curtain rod high to give more height to the space and purchase a new white shower curtain to brighten the space.
Replace the vanity
Installing a new cabinet for the bathroom sink is money well spent. If your budget is tight, give it a fresh coat of paint suitable for cabinets and add new hardware.
