If you are selling your home, every room is essential. Your house is only as strong as its weakest link, and if one room lets your house down, buyers may form a wrong opinion of your property. However, your kitchen and bathroom are hugely important when it comes to creating a positive impression on prospective buyers who visit your home.
There is a lot of guidance and information available for vendors on how to display and present their kitchen, but there are fewer details regarding the bathroom. If you want to ensure your bathroom looks fantastic when viewers look around your home, here are some tips to improve your bathroom and sell your home.
· Create more space with storage solutions
· Add relevant accessories
· Have a colour scheme in place
· Make sure the bathroom is cleaned to the highest standard
· Offer some finishing touches that stick in a buyer’s mind
No matter the room on display, buyers want to see more storage options. When you think about the number of belongings people have in the bathroom, there is a need for storage. If you don’t have a lot of floor space in your bathroom, consider adding a wall-mounted cabinet.
This solution allows easy access to what you need if you have children, it keeps potentially harmful items out of their reach, and it provides more space on the floor.
If you are considering adding accessories to your bathroom, you need to add related accessories. Think about the style of the bathroom, and the decor of the whole house. If you have a traditional home, it is best to maintain this theme. If you have a modern house, opt for contemporary features and accessories. Chrome taps, pipes and towel-racks are very fashionable right now, and these are an ideal addition to your bathroom.
When selling your home, it is best to keep things simple. If you are going to redecorate a room, maintain a modest colour scheme, and this is also relevant to the bathroom. There is nothing wrong with having a colour scheme in the bathroom, and if you have a favourite colour, you can utilise it to good effect.
Don’t go overboard when it comes to creating a colour scheme, but combining towels, soaps and some finishing touches to create a unified look is an excellent way to ensure your bathroom impresses guests.
It should go without saying, but your bathroom needs to be spotless. If there is mould in your bathroom, prospective buyers will have concerns about dampness or ventilation problems. Therefore, you need to ensure you scrub your bathroom and ventilate it thoroughly before the viewing process takes place.
For a nice finishing touch, add scented candles or a potpourri basket to create a bathroom that looks and smells fantastic.
