If you are trying to sell your DC Ranch home, staging the property is an important step. Many sellers tend to concentrate on the “entertaining rooms” of the home, and forget the importance of staging your home’s bathrooms. With the tips below, you can turn a basic bathroom into a calming retreat with a spa-like look and feel. Here’s how to get your bathrooms staged and “show-ready” for buyers looking for DC Ranch homes for sale.
Put the ordinary items out of sight
Sure, it’s normal to have soap, toothbrushes, extra toilet paper, and cleaning supplies in the bathroom. But most buyers of luxury homes aren’t looking for normal. They’re looking for luxury, and that means seeing only eye-catching décor, not your personal items. So make a mental note to take them out of the bathroom before anyone comes to look at your home. Don’t forget to remove any toiletries from the shower, as well as the scale and anything else that’s more practical than pretty. You can make it easy on yourself by putting everything into a basket or bin that you can quickly remove or put back in the bathroom as needed.
Keep your bathroom clean
It goes without saying that your bathroom should be sparkling clean for showings. Give your bathroom a good clean, remembering to remove spots from shower doors or tiled walls, and any corrosion off of your faucets. Keep your bathroom clean by storing bleach wipes in the bathroom that you can use to wipe everything down before buyers tour the house. Just remember to remove or hide these wipes along with other cleaning products before the showing.
Decorate your bathroom with elegant accent items
Once your countertops are clean and clear of any personal products, it’s time to add a few pretty accents. You can start by putting a nice wooden tray or basket on the countertops. Then fill it with some items you’d want to find in your ideal bathroom. This might include scented candles and soaps, bath oils, lotion, or bubble bath in a pretty bottle. And consider putting a potted plant or flowers on the counter, as well, since this is a simple way to create a nice, relaxing atmosphere in any bathroom.
Get luxurious linens
One of the easiest ways to take your bathroom from ordinary to elegant is with fluffy white towels like the ones you might see at a spa. Your best bet is to buy them new and then put them away between visits from buyers, since this is the only way they’ll look luxurious for long. You can add some washcloths or smaller hand towels on top, and then maybe tie them all together with a ribbon. Then pair those new towels with some new fluffy rugs to put on the floor for a spa-like bathroom in your DC Ranch home for sale.
Make affordable bathroom upgrades
Unless your bathroom is falling apart, it doesn’t make financial sense to spend thousands of dollars on renovations before selling your house. And luckily, homes in DC Ranch are not only newer, but also tend to come with lots of nice bathroom features. This means you likely only need some minor repairs and upgrades to make your bathroom look brand new. Some ideas include upgrading cabinet knobs, putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, and fixing any leaky faucets.
