Furniture in a Bathroom?...of course, don't be afraid! - Home Staging in a Bathroom in Dayton, Ohio

By
Home Stager with Debra's Designs Home Staging & Redesign

Bathrooms are fun for me to work with and they really don't take much time. 

As I've mentioned before in a blog, I am not a realtor but I do know that Bathrooms, as well as kitchens, do sell houses! 

Bathrooms are not just about a sink, a toilet and a tub and/or shower anymore.  Bathrooms are a great place for furniture.  In my opinion, if the space allows you should have at least one furniture piece in every bathroom.  The photos below show a small powder room.  This room already had great color on the walls and a few nice accessories.  I just added a small chest and some more accessories to it to really make it something to look at.

Bathroom Selling Tip: and this can NOT be stressed enough.  After hiring a professional home stager to work with you and get your house ready to sell, KEEP IT CLEAN!!  Clean has two meanings, tidy and most importantly...no dirt!  If you can do that, then your house will be...

I think that bathrooms and kitchens need to look clean and tidy. Dirty dishes, soap scum...just gross. I think that most people will forgive some dust, but when they envision cleaning someone else's dirty bathroom and kitchen....that's uninviting.

I agree with Karen.  there are some things people don't mind cleaning, but when it comes to the unknowns in the kitchen and bath, people get very squeamish.  It is a nice bath, although it looks like the table won't allow a person to sit straight on it.  Is that just the angle the picture was taken?  Either way, the decor itself is very nice.  :)

I couldn't agree with you more.  Why is it that someone else's dirt is even more dirty and more disgusting as our own dirt?  YUCK!

It was a tight fit in there.  But yes, you could sit straight.  Hard to see that in the picture, I agree.

I just realized it looked like I said it looks like the person couldn't sit straight on the table...From your answer I gather you realized what I was really trying to say during my senior moment.  :)
