Full-scale bathroom remodeling can be expensive and, in today’s housing market, you won’t likely get all of the money back that you put into it at the time of sale.
Knowing that bathroom projects tend to have a low return on investment, therefore, here are a few inexpensive changes that you can make to spruce up bathrooms in a home for sale.
Most sellers will notice if the fixtures in a bathroom are old, and it can have a negative effect on their view of your home. Buy a new set of bathroom fixtures at a home improvement store. Most stores have matching towel racks and bathroom tissue holders, too. There is a wide selection of stainless steel, wood, or ceramic fixtures available at most stores, too.
A fresh coat of paint is a simple way to improve the overall look of a bathroom. Choose paints with a light, neutral color to make the room seem more spacious.
If your bathroom floor has tiles, it’s a good idea to add fresh grout to brighten up the bathroom’s overall look, or, at least, to clean the grout so that it looks like new. Scratched linoleum should also be replaced. There is plenty of inexpensive flooring which is easy to install, in a variety of patterns and colors at your local hardware or flooring store.
Prospective buyers should be able to imagine themselves living in your home. It’s easier for them to do that when 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 the essentials such as toothpaste and hairbrushes.
Making a good impression on your prospective buyers can be easier when you’ve redone a bathroom. It doesn’t require much money, and it may increase the final sale price of home.
