Our Top 7 Tips for Staging Your Bathroom
So, you are preparing to sell your home, and you need to stage your bathroom? Staging your bathroom is essential.
When potential buyers come into a home, they will focus on two main things: the kitchen and the bathroom.
We have all the tips and tricks for helping your bathroom put its best foot forward, so let’s get into it right away!
#1 Fresh Paint
A fresh coat of paint is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways you can update your bathroom, and it has the BIGGEST impact. It can also be a great way to plan updates for the rest of your bathroom.
Once you select a colour, you can then plan your hardware and decor to coordinate. Using white or other neutrals is always a safe bet, but you can also choose a bold colour on your walls.
Pinterest is a great place to look for inspiration.
#2 Update Cupboard Hardware, Handles & Knobs
If you visit your local hardware store, you will find an abundance of hardware styles to stage your bathroom with knobs, pulls and handles that come in various shades of metallics, glass and ceramic.
They can add impact and personality to your space.
Choose hardware colours that contrast with the front of your cupboards for extra effect!
#3 Update Your Mirror
The bathroom mirror is a focal point and an excellent opportunity to grab potential buyers’ attention!
A framed mirror creates maximum impact. Go classic with a simple black or dark wood frame.
A round mirror with a gold frame creates an airy, modern look.
Make sure the mirror is the right size for your bathroom – it should create a feeling of balance. You can ask us if you are unsure!
#4 Update Your Light Fixture
Is that dusty old light fixture killing the vibe in your bathroom? The light fixture is another central focal point in your bathroom, so if you want to catch potential buyers’ eyes, it is time for an upgrade!
The sky truly is the limit because there are so many beautiful options to choose from!
This is another good time to check out Pinterest or the display at your local hardware store. Have some fun with it!
#5 Clean Your Grout Lines
If you are prepping your bathroom for staging and haven’t installed new tile recently, a quick and easy upgrade is to give your grout lines a good cleaning!
Many commercial products can get them sparkling clean, but there are also simple remedies from your pantry that can work just as well (some baking soda and vinegar, for example!)
Either way, the essential ingredients are a small bristle brush and some elbow grease.
#6 Update Your Faucet & Countertop
It might seem like a major project, but it’s not that complicated to update your countertop and faucet!
Most countertops are one piece and can be changed out relatively quickly – we do it all the time.
And since the countertop is one of the main focal points in a bathroom, it’s well worth the effort. While you’re at it, you can switch out your old faucet for an updated one.
Faucet technology is constantly improving, and they are surprisingly essential selling points when staging your bathroom.
# 7 Fresh Shower Curtain and Bath Mat
If you have a shower curtain in your bathroom, it’s time to pick up a new one – and make sure you include a new bath mat too!
Fresh linen can help draw the eye to all the beautiful features in your bathroom. Just choose a complementary colour that doesn’t clash or create too much of a distraction – we recommend a soft, snowy white.
