|Keep it Modern, Keep it Neutral
If a bathroom looks old and outdated potential buyers will be seeing a complete refurbishment and mentally deducting the money from their offer. Presenting a modern bathroom doesn’t necessarily demand refurbishment, more often just some simple cosmetic changes.
Brightly coloured suites can give an instantly dated look. If they are in good condition and you don’t want to replace them, play down the colour with neutral accessories or white walls. Consider updating tapware or showerheads, in a consistent material, to give a more modern feel. No matter how much cleaning you do some bathrooms will never look fresh. A coat of paint in a neutral colour will instantly renew the room and even bring old tiles back to life. If your grout is in a sorry state then reviver pens can work a charm.
Carpets in bathrooms are becoming increasingly unusual as they are considered unhygienic. If you have one, replace it with vinyl or tiles. The same goes for curtains, replace with a clean neutral blind.
The final touch should be clean and fluffy towels. Indulge in the best for your new home and show them off to buyers. Subconsciously suggest luxury and you can’t go wrong.
