When you are selling your house, believe it or not, the bathroom is extremely important to prospective buyers. So before you put your home on the market, you may want to do some upgrading. The following article will give you some ideas on classy-looking improvements you can make to it.
The first one we will discuss is one that people are likely to notice right off the bat, your mirrors. It is easy and relatively inexpensive to add a custom frame to them. The company Mirror Mate is known for having a nice array of styles to choose from, no matter what size the mirror is. If you have more than one bathroom, you can pick a different style frame for each one.
Next, we will move a couple of feet down and talk about your vanity. If it is a plain, dull colour, it will not be attractive to people. Try a do-it-yourself (DIY) painting project and add some colour to the vanity that will compliment the bathroom and appeal to a broad range of buyers. An example of a terrific colour choice is a pretty de-saturated teal, which you can apply to the wooden areas. Then include some uniquely patterned knobs on the drawers and doors. Do not forget your fixtures and fittings, perhaps they ought to be replaced as well.
If you have a larger bathroom with a dual vanity and more space, you can put your carpentry skills to work. You can do so by incorporating a beautifully crafted and painted wooden frame around it and the mirrors, maybe include some shelving in the center. You will want to do the same for any storage areas or windows you have in the bathroom. When you are finished, the results will be amazing.
Another bathroom upgrade you will want to make is in your shower and/or bath area. For this you have a couple of options. You can resurface the area with one of the many specialist products available. These products are designed for painting the tub or shower itself and over tiles where necessary. Consider updating the bathroom by tiling in a feature wall, in some cases with expert advice on the quality of the substrate you can even tile of the existing surface, maybe even choose a pattern that is lovely, yet not too garrish.
While you are at this, remember to improve the toilet too. It is a good idea to stay away from wallpaper in this section of the bathroom unless you have a separate water closet or you use a bathroom specifics paper as it could peel quickly due to the constant moisture from the water.
Now that we have inspired you, you might be wondering where to find your supplies. Any home improvement store or hardware store should have everything you need. In addition to the supplies themselves, these stores will have guide books and knowledgeable staff members on-hand to help you. You could also search online for any independently-owned stores, from which you can purchase the same kinds of necessities and receive sound advice or be directed to a trades person that can assist. By the time you are finished, you will have bathrooms that look so fabulous, you may want to stay in the home.
Your neighbours will be astounded by the results of your hard work and will be clamouring for you to instruct them on how they can make their own bathrooms look this smashing. So, what are you waiting for? Make those bathroom upgrades as soon as possible.

I really like the idea of updating the tub or shower to help up your chances of selling the house. I think the bathroom is, like you said, a very important place for perspective buyers, and it makes a lot of sense that you want the important places to look good. Overall I loved the advice, so thanks for sharing.
