Bathroom changes that will sell your home

20th June 2019 posted in PROPERTY NEWS

When you are selling your home, every room in the property is essential, but some rooms are more important than others. The bathroom and kitchen receive particular attention from buyers, and these rooms have to be in excellent condition to create a positive impression with prospective buyers.

There is a lot of guidance on how vendors can improve their kitchen, but the bathroom doesn’t receive as much focus. A few years ago, vendors were advised to completely overhaul their bathroom before placing it on to the market, but this is no longer the case. It is better to make a few subtle changes to impress a buyer than carry out a comprehensive overhaul.

Four ways you can have a hugely positive impact on buyers are:

  1. Provide more storage space in the bathroom
  2. Remove all mould and clean the bathroom to a high standard
  3. Choose acessories that match the room and your home
  4. Offer a finishing touch that lingers in the mind

Making improvements in these areas will make a massive difference, and they don’t have to be expensive.


Provide more storage space in the bathroom

Every buyer wants to find more storage space, and if you deliver it, your home will be in high demand. With medicines, beauty products and toiletries to consider, there is a lot of items to store in the bathroom, so offering a stylish storage space is a great idea.
Anyone limited for floor space in the bathroom should consider installing a wall-mounted cabinet. This addition creates more space, but it can also keep harmful products out of children’s reach, which is another benefit for buyers.

Remove all mould and clean the bathroom to a high standard

It should go without saying that buyers want to see a sparkling bathroom. Mould is not only off-putting for a buyer, but it can also be a sign that there are problems in the bathroom. Mould suggests that there is dampness or a problem with ventilation, and these warning signs may lead to a buyer cooling their interest.

Before you place your property on the market, take the time to blitz the bathroom, ensuring the removal of mould and any dirty marks.

Choose accessories that match the room and your home

An accessory or two can change any room, and this is the case with a bathroom. Before you start buying products, think about the style of your bathroom and home. You want to choose accessories that accentuate your current style. If you have a modern home, you should add contemporary accessories. Any vendor who has a traditional home will find that vintage aspects will work better in shaping a new look in your bathroom.

Offer a finishing touch that lingers in the mind

A small finishing touch, such as a scented candle or neatly folded towels, may not seem like a lot, but it is something that lingers in the mind of a buyer. Prospective buyers likely look at a lot of homes, so do something that ensures your stands out for all the right reasons.
