DIY Staging: How to Create a Picture Perfect Bathroom
The purpose of staging is to make your home look as inviting as possible. Each room appeals to buyers for different reasons, but often sellers overlook the importance of staging their bathrooms. The bathroom may only be a small part of your home, but it makes a big impact on potential buyers. A clean, classy bathroom gives the impression that the home is well cared for and displays pride in ownership. There is no need to undertake costly renovations. Here are four simple and inexpensive tips to make your bathroom look its best:
Look for any small improvements that need to be completed. Do you notice signs of wear in your bathroom? Perhaps it could use a fresh coat of paint, or some new hardware to modernize the cupboards. There is no need to completely overhaul the space. With a modest budget and a few hours on the weekend, you can make some dramatic improvements in your bathroom.
Start with a deep cleaning. Use the right cleaning products to remove soapy build-up from the tub and make your sink and tiles gleam. Be sure to scrub the baseboards around the perimeter of the bathroom and take some time to reorganize cupboards and drawers. Serious buyers always take a closer look at a home to examine the condition of the cupboards and fixtures.
Clear your countertops. Clutter-free surfaces make a space appear larger. Put away toothbrushes and curling irons. Keep it simple with a decorative soap dispenser and some modest decorations like small plant or scented candle.
Upgrade your linens. Hang a brand new, high quality shower curtain. Shower curtains are a small investment that make a large impact. Even if your bathroom is slightly dated, your shower will look immediately refreshed and the curtain will create an interesting focal point in the room. Invest in some luxurious towels. Layer them on the towel bar to make your bathroom look rich and inviting.
