Bathroom Talk

You've heard it before, but I'll say it again, bathrooms and kitchens sell houses!

Today, let's focus on how to stage your bathroom. First off, you do not have to completely gut your bathroom to make the necessary updates for real estate. Work with what you've got! For short money you can dress up your tired bathroom and make it look refreshed. Here are the basics that are covered in a typical Go Room By Room Staging Consultation.

  • Remove all personal items from counter top, back of toilet and shower/tub area

  • Remove all area rugs/mats from the floor

  • Remove curtains and valances

  • New white fluffy "show towels", $50

  • White shower curtain with texture and white liner, $40

  • Cordless cellular shade on window in white, $50

  • Update cabinet and drawer hardware, $30

Some bathrooms need a bit more TLC to get them ready to sell. Think of it like getting a new outfit for a big event and wearing your old beat-up shoes, no jewelry and just throwing your hair into a ponytail. This is assuming your bathtub/shower and flooring is in decent shape and is a neutral color.

  • Replace your vanity and top with a white or gray in-stock set (30", 36" or 40" vanity and top), $450-650 (36") + plus plumber

  • New mirror to match vanity, $100

  • New sink faucet (note if sink top is pre-drilled with 4" or 8" spread), $100-150 + plumber

  • New towel rods, ring and toilet paper holder to match faucet style, $125

  • New vanity light, $100

  • Paint walls a neutral color with fresh white trim, $100 + your painting skills

If the floor tile is just plain ugly consider using Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP), ~$1,000-2,500 with installation and average bathroom size

Estimated cost of materials and labor to do everything on both lists ~$1,800 (without a new floor or shower/tub). All of this is 100% worth the investment. Click on the link below to watch a video that reinforces what Go Room By Room believes (except for the striped rug part)...
