Okay, so you’ve staged your doorway indoors and out – where to go next? That’s up to you, but today we’ve picked the bathroom, having compiled a set of tips to start you off on the right foot.
Clearing off counters, the back of the toilet, the floor, and shelves is a very important part of staging your bathroom. This is true of any bathroom, but when it comes to smaller bathrooms it’s even more crucial as clean surfaces give the illusion of more space.
After you’ve got your surfaces sparkling, don’t neglect your fixtures. If your handles or spigots are outdated, replace them with sleek and modern fixtures. Stay away from brass fixtures — they bring the 1980′s to mind in a big way, and while retro is fun in clothing, it’s a big ‘No’ when it comes to Bathroom fixtures.
Don’t forget those seemingly lux touches – candles, rolled towels, fragrant aromas. For many of us, days at the spa are few and far between. If you can create a spa-like illusion at home in your bathroom, you’ll have something that will really appeal to home buyers. By the same token, upgrade the space – display a new matching towel set and upscale bathroom products – appeal to their sense of aspiration.
As a final touch, don’t forget wild life. Plants add a freshness & softness to bathrooms. Buy healthy bathroom loving plants that are appropriate to the space you have. In larger bathrooms palms can work well, in smaller bathrooms ‘Ivys’ and ‘Peace In The Home’ may work better. Whatever the plant they must remain in tip top condition, dead leaves will have the opposite effect of the one desired.
