Your bathroom is an area you use daily. It is important to make your bathroom as attractive as possible when you sell your home. Potential homebuyers can see themselves spending their mornings in the bathroom if they pay attention.
The first rule to staging a room in your house is to get rid of unnecessary clutter. You can get rid of any medications or products you don’t use often and move jewelry or other toiletry items to a different place. All dirty clothes should be kept in a hamper. You don’t want potential buyers to think you won’t have enough storage space in your bathroom cabinets and closets. To help organize your bathroom, add hooks to doors and walls. You can also install storage trays on cabinets.
Your bathroom may be the most neglected room in your home. It is important to clean your house before you show it to potential buyers. This should include:
- Wiping down surfaces
- Cleaning the toilets, bathtubs, and sinks
- Sweeping and mopping the floors
- Cleaning shower doors, and washing shower curtains
- Removing any stains from tile and grout
- Descaling the showerhead
After you have completed the deep cleaning of your bathroom, take out all cleaning products and dispose of them.
Replace the shower curtain and bathmat
Don’t hang a used shower curtain up if potential buyers are coming to your home. Shower curtains can get dirty even after just a few days. A new curtain will make your bathroom appear clean and fresh. To create a welcoming atmosphere, you can also place a bathmat in front your bathtub.
Repaint the space
If your bathroom is covered in peeling wallpaper or dingy paint, it might be time to paint the room. This will cover any wear and tear and allow you to choose a neutral color that appeals to more homebuyers.
Replacing fixtures like the sink faucet, bathtub faucet and showerhead can instantly give your bathroom a new look. Bathrooms can look old and dingy if they are not maintained properly.
If you have been putting off repairs to your bathroom’s plumbing, it is now that the time has come. Homebuyers can be put off by leaks, loose hardware and loose fixtures. Re-caulk any areas that are chipping away and ensure that all plumbing is in working order.
Make use of mirrors
If your bathroom is small, you can use a tall or wide vanity mirror to increase the space’s size. A mirror placed near or across a window can spread natural light into dark corners of the bathroom.
Add some finishing touches
It’s a good idea to make your bathroom feel luxurious and spa-like. To avoid clutter, don’t overuse these items. Here are some examples:
- Fresh white towels
- A clean white robe
- A basket of folded hand towels
- Flowers or a plants
- Decorative soaps
