5 Tips To Make Your Bathroom Stand Out to Buyers

5 Tips To Make Your Bathroom Stand Out to Buyers

One of the rooms that can make or break the sale of your home is the bathroom. You can sell your home more quickly if you can create a bathroom that appeals to potential buyers. This means you will need to stage the space, at a minimum, or possibly put in some real elbow grease.

If you aren’t sure where to begin, here are some tips that are sure to help you sell your house fast!

1. Clean Everything

Your first step to creating a bathroom that potential buyers will be excited about is to make sure every nook and cranny is as clean as possible. This often requires more than your standard weekly cleaning, as you want to make sure there is nothing left that could deter buyers from making an offer. This can include wiping underneath your toilet tank, cleaning pipes under sinks, giving the walls a once over, and completely scrubbing all grout.

It is best to assume that a potential buyer will look absolutely everywhere. So look inside, under, and around every fixture and make sure there isn’t something unappealing. A few hairs stuck to the surface of the shower or bathtub can be visually unappealing, so make sure they are gone.

2. Replace What Can’t Be Cleaned

In some cases, such as with grout, you may find it easier to replace it instead of clean it. The same can go for bathroom rugs, towels, and shower curtains. While replacing items can be a bigger financial investment, it is better to spend the money than to leave the bathroom looking dingy.

3. Don’t Shy Away from Paint

If your paint has seen better days, this is another area where simply repainting can be preferable. Most bathrooms won’t require a lot of paint to coat the walls, so the investment is often quite reasonable. If your bathroom walls aren’t currently a neutral color, then you may want to even change the color when you repaint. Another thing you may consider painting to give the bathroom more of an uplift is your bathtub. Many bathtubs may have a few stains or discolorations that may be unappealing to look at. The bathtub can be easily fixed and can bring up your bathrooms appearance drastically.

4. Stage It Like A Spa

Now that everything is clean, it is time to consider how to stage your bathroom. It is easy for potential buyers to feel uncomfortable peering into your bathroom. To help them get past that initial reaction, you need to make the space look inviting. The easiest design to mimic for staging is anything that brings to mind a spa-like experience. Focus on soft colors and natural accent pieces. Wood, plants, and stones can work incredibly well. Candles are also a popular choice, though make sure the scent isn’t overpowering

Invest in sets of white towels simply for display. This helps increase the spa feel and makes the space seem cleaner, as most people equate bright white linens with cleanliness. You also want to make sure all bathroom supplies are in containers, and not just strewn about the counter. Additionally, anything that can be (neatly) put into a cabinet or drawer likely should be.

5. Keep Function With Form

Feel free to leave a few bathroom basics out as long as they are attractive. For example, a hand soap in its plastic supermarket dispenser does not have a lot of visual appeal. However, a glass dispenser with a nice pump can be very attractive and functions as a nice accessory. Focus on creating a space that speaks to idea of relaxation, and you likely can’t go wrong.

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
