Ways to Spruce up bathroom prior to selling home

A WOW bathroom can really sell a home. 

Attached are some tips that are easy to do and will make a difference !


-Don't do expensive tub/shower repairs or replacements. Just like with the big-ticket kitchen fixes, this is a matter of taste.

-Do replace dated bath and shower fixtures; this can be done generally quite inexpensively. For instance, if you have a 30-year-old, tiny showerhead, replacing it with a large, rainwater-style model will lend a subtle spa-like quality without costing a lot.

-Don't replace your smallish vanity with a new, built-in model. A lot of remodelers emphasize the intrinsically relaxing qualities of having all your toiletries, towels and even reading material beautifully organized in one big unit made of high-end wood, marble and chrome.

-Do freshen up the vanity area. Invest in a big mirror and put bright lights over it. And a few hundred dollars spent on a nice faucet is well worth it, as, like the showerhead, it's a true basic-and updating the basics, in most homes and markets, is all you should be focusing on.

- Add fluffy towels

- Use candles, they freshen up the area

- Have house professionally cleaned so it will sparkle

Good idea points, even down to really fluffy towels. You can get big fluffy towels for a low price at Costco, for example.
