3 Simple Bathroom Improvements That Can Help You Sell Your Home Faster
For most people, redoing the whole bathroom isn’t an option – especially when they’re just going to turn around and sell the house. However, you can make these small bathrooms improvements that will increase your home’s appeal to buyers:
- New light fixtures
- New hardware and accessories
- More storage space
Here’s a closer look at how to pull each one off, even if you’re on a budget.
Simple Bathroom Improvement #1: New Light Fixtures
The right light fixtures will make your bathroom appear larger and more attractive – and often, that’s done by the amount of light they put out. Head to your favorite home improvement store and look at the options available; you may be surprised to learn that new bathroom light fixtures are relatively affordable. And even better, most of them are simple enough to install on your own, without professional help.
While you’re at the home improvement store, buy LED bulbs for your new fixtures. They’re more energy efficient than traditional bulbs are, and they cast a better (read: more appealing) light.
Simple Bathroom Improvement #2: New Hardware and Accessories
Investing in new cabinet handles and drawer pulls, as well as light switch plates and faucets if necessary, can make a huge difference in the way people see your home. Like light fixtures, you can find these pieces at your favorite home improvement store.
The key is choosing pieces that all match each other – so if you’re picking new cabinet handles and drawer pulls, make sure you get a light switch plate that matches them.
If your faucets have seen better days, it may be time to replace those as well. Although some faucets are easy to install yourself, you’ll definitely want to contact a professional plumber if there’s any plumbing work involved.
Simple Bathroom Improvement #3: More Storage Space
Though you don’t have to knock out a wall and install a new linen closet, there are a couple of things you can do to add storage space to your bathroom. First, you can invest in pull-out shelving for the insides of your cabinets; that can make it easier to keep things organized and provide an additional layer of storage space. Second, you can install a mounted wall shelf for towels and toiletries (such as cotton swabs in a clear, glass jar with a metal lid).
