A bathroom renovation is one of the best things you can do for a home for sale. But, remodeling a bathroom is an expensive project, and in today’s market you aren’t likely to get all the money back that you put into it. So, here are a few inexpensive changes you can make to spruce up the bathroom:
Fixtures: Most sellers will notice if the fixtures in the bathroom are old, and it can have a negative effect on their view of your home for sale. Buy a set of bathroom fixtures at a home improvement store. Most stores have matching towel racks and bathroom tissue holders.
Paint: A fresh coat of paint is a good way to improve the overall look of the bathroom. Choose paints in a light, neutral color to make the room seem more spacious.
Floors: If your bathroom floor has tiles, it’s a good idea to add fresh grout to brighten it up or at least clean the grout so it looks new. Scratched linoleum will need to be replaced. You can buy rather inexpensive flooring that is easy to install in a variety of patterns and colors.
De-Clutter: You want the prospective buyers to be able to imagine themselves living in your home. It’s easier for them to do that if your home is free of clutter. This is even true in the bathroom. Clear out your medicine cabinet. (Yes, many buyers will look in there.) Leave only essentials like toothpaste and hairbrushes.
Making a good impression on your prospective buyers can be easier when you’ve redone your bathroom. You don’t have to spend a lot of money.
