How to revamp your bathroom before selling your home

The process of selling a house isn't easy because a lot of renovation work is required in order to increase both value and curb appeal. Re-Bath bathroom specialist Caryl Anne Crowne shares her top reno tips for one of the busiest and well-worn zones of the home.

Neutral colours 

After someone buys a home, themay want to decorate it to suit their personal styleSo, if you want to make the process more appealing, it’s a good idea to paint the walls a neutral colour. The goal is to reduce work for a new homeowner while each bathroom is decorated, and you can accomplish this by selecting a light, cheerful colour that won't clash with decorative towels, flooring or cabinetry.    [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="690"]methven-hardware-turoa-accessories-collection-contemporary-bathroom High-quality hardware like the Turoa Accessories Collection adds timeless style to contemporary bathrooms.[/caption]

Sleek accessories 

Replacing outdated accessories with slick bathroom hardware will hopefully boost your home's resale value and attract more potential buyers. The most useful and practical accessories include:
  • Polished knobs and handles: Polished knobs and handles mounted on cabinets give a bathroom a luxurious vibe. Always consider the shape of each product. If a knob or handle has a wide arch, the process of gripping and pulling the hardware in order to access a cabinet won't be a hassle.
  • Modern shower hardware: Modern shower equipment is more efficient because the jets have powerful, pressurized components that blast out water very effectively. Soothing showers are very appealing to buyers, so you can easily boost a home's value by replacing old equipment with custom shower hardware that has an adjustable nozzle.

In some cases, simple cleaning routines can make a bathroom more appealing and valuable. As potential buyers inspect bathroom spaces, they always examine grout lines and surfaces around sinks and toilets. If these zones have any dirt or grime, you must use a strong cleanser to eliminate all stains because bathroom bacteria can impact a sale.

Detailed Elements 

While implementing cleaning procedures, carefully check key areas where hidden grime can generate. If these zones aren't properly cleaned or touched up, you could miss opportunities to secure a sale. The most vulnerable areas include:
  • Vents
  • Blinds
  • Toilet bowl rims

And I recommend you consult a professional electrician and plumber to ensure that work is done safely and properly. Here are three ways to give your bathroom a mini-makeover this weekend.
