Staging your home: The bathroom

NEW OLEAR BANNER

Today we’ll continue our recent series on staging your home for sale, room by room, by stepping into the bathroom. Following are some tips for staging this well-used room, courtesy of a recent article on the real estate website “houselogic.”

Obviously, no one wants to walk into a dirty or smelly bathroom, so scrub and sanitize all surfaces — walls, floor, shower door, etc. Here are a few more tips to make your bathroom sparkle!

• Scrub tile grout and re-caulk around the tub and sink if necessary.
• If your tile is dated, you can try painting over it with a high-adhesion primer and either epoxy or latex paint. You may want to consult a professional painter for this job.
• Remove all clutter and pack up your personal belongings.
• Create a spa look and feel by adding fancy soaps, fluffy towels, decorative touches and a new bath mat.
• Fix any leaks and replace the toilet seat.
• Clean out your drains and deodorize with baking soda or vinegar.
• Consider switching out your old sink for a pedestal sink to give the appearance of more space.

Finally, bring a friend into the room for an honest second opinion. Does your bathroom pass the test?
