When home staging, you can be assured people will take a good look at your bathroom. Buyers love the allure of fresh bathrooms that evoke luxury and remind them of bathrooms in hotel rooms. The only problem is, most of us don’t have the perfect bathrooms and you can’t expect buyers to fall in love with yours from the very first moment. But what if I told you there are some bathroom upgrades that can help you create that wow factor for your home stage? Here are five of them you might want to know about.
Create a blank canvas
Most homeowners keep their toiletries and other bathroom supplies on the counter. Even if these are just things such as soaps and toothbrushes, they can still distract buyers from envisioning living in your house. In fact, your personal hygiene products can make them feel like they’re invading your personal space and make them less likely to buy your house. Therefore, start by removing everything from the counter and creating a blank canvas. If you can use the opportunity to install a few extra floating shelves for the new owners, even better.
Maximize the storage
Storage space sells, it’s as simple as that. Expect buyers to open your cupboards and take a look at how much stuff can fit inside. This is why it’s a good idea to empty or reorganize your cupboards. You can move tiny stuff such as lip glosses and cotton balls into a pretty box with a lid. Take a closer look at your bathroom and see if there’s a way to add some extra storage before you start home staging. Most of the time, just a few extra cupboards can make a huge difference.
Replace your tile
If you didn’t renovate your bathroom in a while, chances are your tiles got worn out over time. Replacing is a great idea as a new tile floor can make almost any bathroom feel luxurious. The best part of it is that there are so many options you can choose from and finding a tile that matches the overall look of your bathroom should be easy. Solutions such as indoor porcelain tiles are extremely popular at the moment and opting for them can really take your bathroom to the next level. Just make sure you turn to professionals who’ll execute all the small and challenging tile cuts for you.
Many homeowners fail to realize just how important part of their bathrooms hardware is. Without it, the room just feels incomplete and when the hardware is worn out, it just feels way cheaper than it actually is. With that said, replacing your bathroom hardware before you start home staging is recommended, especially if you detect signs of wear. Replacing hardware isn’t tough and if you know your way around basic tools, the only cost you’ll have to cover is that of buying new hardware.
Get a mirror
In case there are no mirrors in your bathroom, this might be the right time to get one. Not just that most people prefer having a mirror in their bathroom but adding one can also extend your bathroom visually which is always a big plus. Take a closer look at your vanity and opt for a mirror size relative to it. Depending on the size of the room, you can choose between a single mirror and multiple skinny ones. For some extra style, have your new mirror sit between two sconces.
No matter which of these upgrades you decide to make, you should be able to make your bathroom feel more stylish and luxury. Get the job done right and your bathroom might just help you sell your home and even get a better deal in the end.
