Home Staging --- A Hall Bathroom Transformation

I have hundreds of staged room and space transformations to share with you!
So I'll be trying to share more often.

This bathroom was shared by two sisters, hence the pink, 
but it needed to be more neutral.

Bathrooms need to look as clean and as up-to-date as possible.
They also need to feel luxurious and spa-like.

These things were removed or replaced:
the light above the mirror,
the faucet,
the shower head,
the cabinet knobs,
the shower curtain rod,
and the towel hooks.

This wire shelving was put in the yard sale pile, 
and the cabinet by the sink was moved here instead.

Items were simplified and much got donated.

The wallpaper border was removed, of course,
as was the shampoo/soap dispenser.

And here's the AFTER!

Here are a few tips on how to stage a bathroom so that it looks its best:

  • Paint the walls in soothing colors. Pale blues and greens or even khakis are welcome here. Bathrooms especially need to feel cooler and brighter.
  • Get new towels. The fluffier, the better. I always use white. Because you can't keep towels off-limits during the times that your home is not being shown, they will get used and dirty and can be bleached. Buy sets of towels and layer them.
  • Hide daily-use toiletries. The worst thing that you can do is to leave evidence that people actually clean themselves here. Buyers want to feel as if the bathroom has been prepared just for them. Organize the toothbrushes, sprays, lotions, hairdryers, and hairbrushes in a basket under the counter.
  • Make all the hardware matching. Either do all chrome, all brushed nickel, or oil-rubbed bronze knobs, faucets, and lights. Brass is out. Change it.
  • Keep it immaculately clean. There should be no mold, mildew, soap scum, or toothpaste splatters. Keep the toilet fresh and don't just hide junk under the sink. Keep it neat there, too. Buyers do look under the sink.

From Overwhelmed to Organized :: Why Simplifying Is More Powerful than Organizing

I have a sweet friend, Hilda, who also happens to blog
over at From Overwhelmed to Organized
and she asked me to write about one of my favorite subjects:

Which starts with being able to manage and enjoy our God-given belongings.

We can only enjoy and use them if we aren't overwhelmed by their presence in our homes.

Go see what I'm talking about?
