5 Bathroom Pick-Me-Ups That Can Help You Sell Your Home

When you sell your home, your real estate agent will walk through each room with you and point out areas where you may need to make a few improvements. One of those areas may be your bathrooms, but you can get a head start on your sale by making these improvements:

  1. A double vanity
  2. Fresh hardware
  3. Updated lights
  4. New flooring
  5. More storage

Scroll down for a closer look at each.

Bathroom Upgrade #1: A Double Vanity

Double vanities are incredibly popular with buyers, and you may be surprised to learn that they work well even in small spaces. Two sinks are always better than one, particularly in a shared bathroom. Finding one is easy, too – just head to your favorite home improvement store and see what’s available.

Bathroom Upgrade #2: Fresh Hardware

You can give your bathroom a facelift with new hardware. Look for luxury drawer pulls and cabinet handles, switch plates, towel rods, faucets and faucet handles, which can make a big difference in the way buyers feel about these spaces. Just make sure you choose matching sets to streamline the look you’re creating.

Bathroom Upgrade #3: Updated Lights

Buyers prefer bright bathrooms with modern fixtures, so explore the lighting department at your local home improvement store to see what’s in style now. Often, installing a bathroom light fixture is a DIY job that you can tackle on a weekend afternoon – and it may pay off in a big way.

Bathroom Upgrade #4: New Flooring

If your flooring is scuffed, damaged or in poor condition, you may want to think about replacing it. There are several types of bathroom flooring available, including tile, luxury vinyl, and others, so you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune on the project. If you’re not comfortable doing it yourself, ask your real estate agent to refer you to a local professional who can handle it for you.

Bathroom Upgrade #5: More Storage

Storage is at a premium in bathrooms, and buyers love to see it. Though you don’t have to knock out a wall and install a linen closet, you may want to consider adding shelving to the walls. Built-ins are always a nice touch, but they require construction. You should talk to your real estate agent if you’re considering a project like that – it may not be necessary, and you don’t want to spend your cash if you don’t need to.
