3 essential tips for staging your bathroom and winning over buyers..
It is often said that kitchens and bathrooms sell houses, and this is generally true. The main reason being that the cost of upgrading these rooms is often far greater than that of, say, a bedroom. Buyers want bathrooms that look clean and fresh; if your bathroom is dated, it is worth updating it before you place your property on the market if you want to maximise the sale price of your home. If you want to ensure your buyers are sold on your bathroom, we have some quick tips to get you started.
1. Soft and white
Going to a posh hotel or a luxury spa, one thing you will always notice is the softness and quality of the towels. Equally, if you visit somewhere and the towels are well past their best, it makes you feel as though the whole place is a bit dirty.
Perception is a huge thing when it comes to staging your home for sale, and you want your buyers to perceive your bathroom as a spa-like sanctuary that they never want to leave.
By a small selection of luxurious white towels, but even though you’ll want to, try and resist using them. These towels should just be on show for viewings; having them strategically placed in your bathroom will add that touch of luxury that you’re aiming for.
2. 10 green bottles
We all know that bathrooms, showers, and sinks are full of lotions and potions in varying sized bottles. We know these are essential, but they can also make your bathroom seem cluttered.
Find a way of hiding your bottles when there is a viewing, so that all your surfaces are clear. This will not only make your bathroom feel bigger, it will also heighten the sense of cleanliness.
3. Designer display
Now we know we just asked you to remove all your bottles, but if you have any designer products, such as Molton Brown or Jo Malone, they are an exception to the rule. As trivial as it may seem, having such products on display in your bathroom creates a feeling of elegance. You don’t want to over do it, and they must be positioned with care, but you will be surprised how many people will notice.
So there we have it, three quick and easy ways to stage your bathroom and win over buyers.
