Even in the sellers-market we are currently enjoying, if your bathroom is out of date, you risk diminishing the value of your home. While most stagers and real estate agents agree the kitchen is the most important room to update when trying to sell, the bathroom is not far behind. And if you haven’t taken time to improve the functional qualities and aesthetic appeal of your bathroom, you may find yourself taking less for your home than you would have liked.
Easy Bathroom Updates
Fortunately, updating the bathroom does not need to be complex. Replacing outdated fixtures such as toilets and faucets is certainly a good idea, but that may take more time than you feel you have. However, when possible, replacing older units with new, more advanced fixtures can only help increase the appeal of your bathroom.
If you are unable to update fixtures, consider adding features including lighting and storage space. A well-lit bathroom with medicine and linen cabinets cannot help but produce a more inviting look. Be sure to not over-crowd a space however. Cramped bathrooms are just as unappealing as outdated. Selecting size appropriate upgrades can actually help a room appear larger while still feeling comfortable.
Remember, the bathroom is where every member of a household starts and ends their day. Making sure yours is clean, welcoming, and fully updated can increase the value of your home and help ensure a swifter sale.
