Selling Your Home? Tips For Renovating Your Bathroom To Appeal To Buyers

If you are looking to get the best price for your home, it is common to renovate rooms like the bathroom so that they look more modern. If you want to make the most of your renovation, be sure to follow these tips.

The Walls and Floor

You will want to stick to colors for the walls and floor that are neutral, rather than anything that is bold and will stand out. Your remodeling your bathroom for a potential buyer, not yourself, so any improvements should help them easily imagine using the space rather than being turned off by a design decision you made. You would be surprised if you knew how many buyers walk away from a home and cannot stop thinking about an odd paint color or distracting floor tiles.

The Vanity

Instead of going for style by installing a pedestal sink, select a vanity that offers plenty of counter space and storage. A common thought that a buyer has when they see a home is where they are going to put their existing stuff, not how they will adapt. If they do not see a place to put their toiletry items, a remodeled bathroom can still leave them with a bad impression.

The Shower

You want the shower to be simple and elegant, so once again, avoid any distracting tiles or colors when it comes to the shower. If you do not have the money in your budget to replace the tile in your shower, consider alternative options to restore it. You can reglaze the tile for much less than what it costs to replace it, costing approximately $1,000 instead of $2,500 to have the work done by a professional. You can also stain the grout between the tiles to help it look new again.

The Toilet

Older toilets are not the most efficient at conserving water, and buyers are willing to pay for features that allow them to be more environmentally conscious. When replacing the toilet, go with a low flow toilet that uses 20% less water in comparison to your old toilet. These toilets have WaterSense branding, and meet all the criteria by the EPA to get their recommendation.

These are just a few tips for how you can remodel your home's bathroom and make it more appealing to a buyer. For help doing any of these things, contact a local bathroom remodeling company that can handle the entire job for you.
