Staging the Bathroom

Staging the Bathroom - Although the kitchen is usually the most viewed room in a home showing where most buyers spend more of their time in, the bathroom is often overlooked in the staging process. Most buyers only take a few seconds to look at the bathroom. And in those few seconds, the bathroom can either make or break a deal. Here are some economical tips in transforming the Bathroom into a memorable room for a potential buyer.

Clean

The perfect start of staging a bathroom is a good and thorough cleaning. Use bleach or a good organic cleaning substitute to get rid of any mold and mildew. Light fixtures should be free of dust and grime. To get a spotless result, you may hire cleaning contractors who will clean it from floor to ceiling and are paid depending on the size of the room. But if you want  to be more economical, you can do it yourself just make sure it was thoroughly cleaned because a sparkling bathroom makes a lasting impression.

Update

Updating an outdated bathroom is a game changer. You have no idea how a fresh coat of paint, lighting fixtures or a new wallpaper can make a ton of difference. If the seller is with budget, we highly recommend replacing outdated tubs and sinks instead of just cleaning to give it a fresh new clean look.

Accessories and Lighting

Avoid having a boring bathroom by adding a few colorful accessories and flattering lighting that makes this room memorable and unique. Include new, white towels, accessorize with bright colored flowers or DIY cabinets. Natural sunlight will do the trick if you want economical staging. If there are no windows for natural light, soft white light bulbs can have a similar effect.

De-clutter

De-cluttering of bathroom space is just clearing off the sink tops and vanities, which will make the space appear larger with a cleaner look.  Hide all personal items and be sure that everything visible to the eye looks organized and necessary. The more space you show, the more ability of potential buyers to see their own vision in that space.

Consult

Lastly, only if you have the budget, consult a professional. Interior designers can give tips on the trend, suggest new materials and fixtures and how to maintain them. Or better yet, find a realtor who will provide free consultation.
