In the eyes of potential buyers, bathrooms can be one of the most crucial rooms in the house. As future occupants will be using the room every day, it is important sellers create an appealing space for inspections.
In order to make the best impression and attract buyer attention, here are five tips to freshen up your bathroom ready for sale.
1. Clear the Clutter
As with the rest of your house, an overload of personal clutter can be a big turn off. Clear the clutter from the countertops and even look to add additional storage if you need it, provided it doesn’t impact on the spaciousness of the room too much.
2. Fix the leaks
If you have become accustomed to a dripping tap or leaky shower now is the time to take action. Selling your house means making all the little repairs that you have ignored or learned to live with.
3. Modern fixtures
Old or rusty fixtures can create an outdated impression. They may appear as red flags for defects in a house that is older, so a simple fix is to update your taps, handles, hooks or towel rails to something more contemporary.
4. Fresh Towels
Shaping the perceptions of potential buyers does not have to be expensive and can be achieved with a few cheap and simple additions, like crisp, matching towels. They will help the space to appear fresh, creating an aura of cleanliness.
Mirrors are another easy addition to open up a space. If your bathroom is on the smaller side then this is a handy trick to consider. Choose a mirror style or frame to suit the feel of your home and a size that is not too overwhelming for the available space. Where possible if your mirror can reflect an outside view this will help to create a seamless indoor/outdoor feeling.
