Selling your home is challenging, and you need to make a positive impression on buyers. All rooms are essential, but the bathroom can often be the make or break room around your home. At Bond Oxborough Phillips, we have helped many people sell their home, and we know the importance of the smallest room in the house!
Here are some of our top tips to sell your home by improving your bathroom.
Break the mould
When something is said to “break the mould”, it refers to being one of a kind or unique. However, in the bathroom, it is vital you break the mould to create a welcoming and appealing bathroom. Mould is one of the most unattractive things you can see in a bathroom, and it hints at more significant problems.
Mould often appears due to issues with dampness or a reduced standard of ventilation in the bathroom. These feature buyers look out for, as they would prefer to avoid a home that has these attributes.
If your bathroom suffers from mould, it is vital that you clean and removes the mould, with bleach being a smart way to tackle this problem. You should also look to ventilate the bathroom, especially when hot water is in use.
After you use the bath or shower, wipe it down, and this will minimise the likelihood of your silicone or grout being blackened.
Accessorise in style
You don’t need to transform your entire bathroom, but you should reinvigorate the room. The most effective way to improve the appearance of your bathroom is to add some stylish accessories or upgrade some of the key features.
Always make changes that fit with the style of the room or home. If you have a traditional home, adding classic features makes sense. If you live in a modern home, it is best to make contemporary upgrades that accentuate the freshness and vitality of the house.
If your bathroom plays host to used items like toothbrush holders, soap dishes or even a toilet brush holder, upgrade and create a positive first impression on guests.
Add more storage space
No matter the room of your home, people want to see more storage options. If you can install more storage solutions, you’ll create more interest in your home. In the bathroom, consider adding a wall cabinet as this will create more floor space in your bathroom.
Don’t forget the finishing touches
The bathroom is an area that is very much in use when people are at home, but if you have guests coming to view your home, or even photograph it, you need to make the best impression.
Remove all wet towels and items, ventilate the room and then create a clean and stylish appearance. Be sure to wash and fold all towels used in the bathroom, creating an appealing site for all guests.
If you are looking to sell your home, the bathroom is critical in making a positive impression on prospective buyers. If you are keen to sell your home, contact Bond Oxborough Phillips, and we’ll be happy to assist you.
