One of the most important spaces in any home is the bathroom. Buyers in our Palm Springs area WILL pay particular attention to bathrooms, so make sure yours looks their best. It is one of the most functional rooms in the house, and it runs the risk of looking dull, small, or even dirty – certain to turn off even the most enthusiastic buyer!
Palm Springs area buyers want bathrooms to be spacious, clean, and in good repair. If your bathroom fits the bill, the buyer can mark off a ‘must have’ item on his list. After you’ve made sure yours is super clean and in perfect repair, a scented candle, a display of sumptuous towels, and a crisp new shower curtain are just a few of the special touches you can add to make your bath shine.
Buy a few new ‘show’ towels in a combination of neutral and bold colors to soften the room and add lots of texture. Fold the towels in thirds to hide the edges and seams, and hang them in layers on the towel rack. Roll the remaining towels and display them in a floor basket or on the vanity. This layering creates a luxurious, warm feeling in a room that’s generally cold and stark.
Drape a thick, fluffy towel over the side of the tub, and set a pretty bottle of herb-scented bath oil on the tub ledge. Fill a shell or pretty bowl with small, scented guest soaps, and set it on the sink. Add a scented candle or some bathroom potpourri. In general, a subtle aroma is more appealing to most people so keep this in mind when selecting these items to display.
A new shower curtain adds drama, texture, and luxury. A two-paneled shower curtain coupled with a valance creates a terrific impact. If the bathroom is small, tie the shower curtain back to open the space up as much as possible.
Replace the light fixture if it’s worn or dated. Be sure the bulbs are clean and dust free, so they will sparkle. Re-enamel a chipped or worn tub, and add new towel racks to match the fixtures. Set a few items in decorative packaging (lotion, soap, perfume) in a basket on the ledge.
Most importantly, always make sure your bathroom is sparkling clean and fresh, and conveys a sense of comfort and luxury. You’ll be sure to impress your buyers with any of these simple yet special touches to your bathroom.
