When preparing your home for sale, the key word to shoot for when staging your home to sell is, “Spa-like”. You want buyers to peek into any one of your bathrooms and have the impression this is a luxurious place to unwind.
- Put all hygiene and primping products out of view; place everything in decorative baskets under the sink.
- Remove wallpaper and accessories related to a theme, such as Southwest or Barbie.
- De-emphasize an older cabinet or dated sinks, tub or commode by introducing accessories like a shower curtain and towels that have a complementary color.
- New countertops can dramatically update a bath. Add decorative framed mirrors mounted on top of an existing wall of mirror; a great way to give the space visual interest.
A couple of easy purchases you can make to add spah appeal to your bathroom. Towels and more towels – thick and luxurious towels, all white or a couple of soothing colors that compliment your home.
Roll several and place them in a basket with bath salts and loofah – fold and stack some on open shelves, add potpourri and greenery, hang layers on towel bars.
Add scented candles and more greenery to a tray on the tub deck to soften the space, add a fresh rug and most important don’t forget the elbow grease. Sparkling clean is a top priority – make all of the bathrooms the cleanest place in your home.
New flooring can transform a tired looking bath into a fresh modern space in one afternoon. There usually isn’t a lot of square footage in a bathroom, making this upgrade easy and fairly inexpensive. Today’s buyer does not want carpet in a bathroom.
Visual Clutter in a bathroom projects a lack of space and energy. Eliminate as much clutter as possible; keep the space simple and limit the items you display to well selected accoutrements.
Organize and clean inside the drawers, under sinks and inside the linen closets. Show the buyer there’s room here to grow.
