Simple Updates to Lift a Bathroom
Lately I have been meeting with a decent number of home sellers interested in hitting the market with bathrooms that are showing their age. Small tiles and one piece vinyl installations that were builder-grade do not create buyer enthusiasm. And in a seller’s market, buyers are spending so much money getting into homes, they may not have funds to improve areas after they move in.
How can a seller lift the appearance of their bathroom inexpensively and without pidgeonholing the buyer on color themes?
Lately, luxury vinyl plank flooring has been a great solution. Waterproof and warm to your bare feet, it is perfect for a bathroom. And the wood like designs make it very fashionable. The photo above is a style of LVP with a good amount of color variation. When you are selling a home, you don’t want to make definitive color statements. The LVP in the photo can go with virtually any color scheme a buyer would want. It’s not too gray and not too brown.
Another great inexpesive lift to an outdated bathroom are faucets. The faucet pictured above was an immediate win, replacing a single knob faucet that had a plastic piece on top that had dirt from decades before. Sure, you could clean or replace the plastic piece, but a fifty dollar faucet was a much better investment in getting a buyer excited about the home.
