How your bathroom can help sell your house
One of the most important rooms in your house is your bathroom. If the bathroom is an important room for you in your house, then it can be said the same is true for others. At Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens, we known bathrooms well and over the years we have come to understand how and why a bathroom is such an import part of your house and home. We know that how your bathroom looks and feels can play a vital role when selling your house and how some simple fixes and touches can help you get more money for your house. So, how can your bathroom help sell your house?
The Bathroom Floor
One of the things a person will look at when buying any house is the flooring in a bathroom. A big no-no for any bathroom, especially when selling a house is carpet in the bathroom. Carpets and even rugs around toilets are harbingers of bugs and bacteria. Impossible to get fully clean, carpets in the bathroom are something a prospective buyer sees as something they will need to replace and perhaps put in a lower offer to cover the cost of this. It makes absolute sense to replace carpets with more appropriate bathroom flooring. Good bathroom flooring need not cost a fortune but a small spend could pay for itself with a faster sale or improve sale price.
A Clean Bathroom Sells Houses
This may seem obvious but cleaning your bathroom before showing is essential. However, just a dust over with a damp cloth is not enough. A really deep clean that adds sparkle to the bathroom makes a bathroom look amazing. If may even show up taps and small things that no amount of cleaning will make shine. On small items, such as taps or handles the small cost of replacing them will pay off when selling your home.
Everyone has different tastes when it comes to décor and the style of your bathroom may not suit the buyers. It makes sense to neutralise the décor in your bathroom when selling to make the bathroom more appealing to more people. Sometimes a simple and cost-effective makeover with some neutral colours and bathroom accessories can make a bathroom look like new and make selling faster as well as adding value to the property.
A DIY makeover of the bathroom is vital when selling. Making sure taps don’t drip and that cupboards open and close properly makes all the difference. Some paint touch-ups never go amiss and a general once over to ensure showers, baths, basins and toilets work properly is vital – you will be amazed how a non-flushing toilet or poorly hung cabinet door can impact the sale of your house.
