As a real estate agent there is one suggestion I always provide to my clients who are listing their homes: Keep toiletries in the bathroom out of sight. Specifically, removing items off the countertops and minimizizing the items in the shower/tub area. My opinion is buyers don’t really want to know your morning routine. And, funny enough once I point this out to sellers they notice it in homes when they are ready to buy a home. The idea, to minimize or hide toiletries is simple, inexpensive and really changes the bathroom decor. This is a suggestion for any bathroom, whether it’s on the market or not. Here is our guest bathroom in the basement shortly after we purchased our home. It just says, “this is the bathroom.”
Here is the “after” photo. A simple fabric (not vinyl) shower curtain adds privacy to the contents of the shower and more importantly adds warmth to the bathroom. This look says “this is an extension of our home.”
What do you think of this Before and After? With our tiled counter top and bathroom floor the fabric adds new texture and much needed color.
Here is the Before and After side by side. What do you think?
