These tips are from Houzz.com. Their bathrooms are just gorgeous--but the tips work for "the rest of us" with more run of the mill bathrooms too. Two jump out at me:

1. Buy a set of new, fluffy towels for show. Once towels are washed, they never look as crisp.

2. Buyers do not want to see your personal care products--even in the shower! I never thought of that but Houzz is absolutely right. People are looking for "new"--even when they are buying a resale house. Someone else's shampoo and toothpaste break that illusion. THANK YOU, HOUZZ!

Nail the toilet seat down, lower the lid, turn on the lights, tidy up and make sets of images to floor to ceiling camera capture angle get the space illustrated. Baths with one image sliced, diced look small, they always are too tiny.

Too funny, Andrew Mooers! Showing the toilet open with the seat up in listing pictures is such a turn off. And LIGHTS! Yes, lights!!! Get the bathroom sparkling clean and turn the lights on. It makes such a big impact--even with a dull, small, older bath.

Here is a cheap fix that can really make an impact: For $30 or $40, buy one of those white, waffle-style, fabric shower curtains. york.waffle.jpgThey spiff up the dullest baths.
