Bathroom To-Do List For Home Sellers

In today's competitive "buyer's" real estate market people need to do everything in their power to present their home a desirable eye-catcher. Providing a potential home buyer with a positive, non-crowded feeling can be the different in making the sale and watching the buyer walk out the door. As such, make sure that you get the most out of your bathrooms when remodeling and decorating.

Home buyers like the flexibility a house offers when there is a guest bathroom (sometimes called a "powder room") present. These bathrooms are usually smaller and as such don't require a very large financial investment to spruce up. A gallon of pain will go a long way in a small bathroom as will a fresh set of vibrantly colored hand-towels. If you have a bathroom for a child's room (or rooms) but don't have a guest bathroom, change the look away from that of a kiddy bathroom to that of an adult guest bathroom.

Buyers love to see a large master bathroom when visiting a potential new home. If remodeling, make sure that you make ample use of mirrors (perhaps a counter-to-ceiling mirror above the sink area?) to give the illusion of a larger, more spacious room. If the master bathroom isn't very large, make sure to stick with lighter, more open and airy colors when decorating to help enhance the illusion of spaciousness.

Additionally, if you have noticeably old-looking cabinets, can them and start hunting for specials at your local hardware store. If visually appropriate you may even want to paint the new cabinets the same color of the ceiling or walls to save time when "cutting in" when painting. If a counter-to-ceiling mirror is not practical in your application then seek a large decoratively framed mirror that is inline with the overall look and feel of your bathroom.

Speaking of "look and feel", perhaps leave a (fake) plant in the bathroom and get some fresh and fluffy new towels to try and evoke a "resort spa"-like feel along with new, unopened containers of exotic lotions and oils. Whatever look you opt for, avoid going too overboard with these decorative knick-knacks (especially if you're in a small bathroom) to stay away from a cluttered and crowded look.

Spending some time taking an objective look at the current state of affairs in your bathroom may indeed play a large role in getting your home sold!
