"A Master Bathroom is a luxury. It’s a room where you can light candles, pour a nice warm bubble bath and enjoy a good book or a glass of wine.You want to be pampered in a Master Bath, so set the stage.Add candles, natural sponges, brand new loofahs anything to remind one of a spa"
"While this bathroom was well lit and has a wonderful large window to bring in much natural light, the room felt small and dark. And while the room has an original claw-foot tub, the wallpaper remains the focal point. Ready? Set...Sell! Home Staging & ReDesign helped these homeowners select just the perfect color to create a warm and inviting atmosphere!"
"The Master Bath is more important than a guest bathroom. However, the buyer almost always comes to the guest bathroom first as they walk through a home. So don't let it set a negative tone that your house is outdated. Outdated immediately screams 'MONEY NEEDED' to the buyer and so many times there are easy and inexpensive fixes to update the space."
