do-it-yourself bathroom remodel IDEAS TO ATTRACT HOME BUYERS

Buyers love the allure of a fresh, beautiful bathroom that reminds them of luxury hotels or soothing spas they have enjoyed. But most importantly, you want buyers to see themselves enjoying this luxury in their new home.

However, most of us do not have a perfect bathroom. We all know in most instances, it is not a wise investment to do a full renovation for a home sale. It simply isn't profitable.

The best strategy is to maximize what you already have at minimum cost. You want to transform your bathroom into a five-star hotel experience potential buyers will appreciate. Here are a few inexpensive ways to turn your bathroom into a luxury space.

Make Minor Upgrades

It is smarter to spend your money only where it will show and to make small, inexpensive upgrades which provide a big impact. Generally, improvements that can’t easily be seen don’t translate into a higher home sale price.

The most common upgrades for return-on-investment: repainting the walls, replacing leaking and worn taps, updating the cabinet hardware, installing new light fittings and updating towel bars.
In some bathrooms it’s also worth considering changing the tiles (large white tiles always make a bathroom feel more spacious and contemporary), replacing shower screens and investing in new countertops. This is often justified in a pricier properties, where buyers are expecting a higher level of bathroom luxury.

Hang Luxurious Towels

Any bathroom can be instantly transformed by adding large, soft towels. New is best so it’s a great idea to keep your new towels just for display only. Store them away between buyer inspections and restage them just before the next prospective buyer arrives. Of course, you want to be sure to have your entire property staged for your real estate photo/video shoot. This way your staging efforts and showing your home at its best will be available 24/7 in your online real estate listings.

If there is additional counter space, you can also place a neatly folded stack of matching towels on the vanity or side of the bath for a little extra touch of luxury.

Beautify With Accessories

Use a few well-chosen accessories to add warmth, elegance and luxury. Creating a spa-like experience with accessories in tranquil, soft colors. Include fragrant soaps, bath oils, loofahs and candles.

It’s important to display these products as groupings rather than scattering them around the room scattered products can look like clutter. Less is better. Think simplicity.
