If you have ever talked to a real estate agent, you understand that the top two selling features of a home are the kitchen and bathroom. By focusing on these rooms, you will be able to increase the overall value of your home and potentially make a return-on-investment. Today we are going to focus on six ways that you increase value in your bathroom. Let us get started!

Simple Ways to Increase Value in Your Bathroom:

1. Get Fixed on Fixtures.

An easy update that you can do without a contractor is replacing your bathroom fixtures. From the sink to the shower, you will want to replace the faucets with new, chic ones to make the bathroom look its best.

2. Lights On.

Take a look at the current light supply in your bathroom. Lighting can be a significant selling feature without homeowners realizing it. You will want to make sure that there is an ample amount of natural light coming into the space as well as light fixtures. Take a look at your bathroom during the daytime and nighttime and see if your lighting needs to be adjusted.

3. Customized.

Everyone’s home is unique, and no two houses will be the same. That is something you can use towards your advantage. Customizing your bathroom specifically to complement its shape and architecture will help make it more appealing to buyers. Things like custom cabinetry with extra shelving can make your bathroom stand out from the rest.

4. Embrace Neutrals.

Unfortunately, we cannot know exactly what a buyer is looking for in a home. Each buyer is unique and has their own preferences. That being said, your best bet is to remain neutral in a color palette. It is the most generally pleasing palette for a bathroom, and it tends not to turn away buyers.

5. Create an Oasis.

You want to create an experience in your bathroom. To add value to your bathroom, you will want to focus on two areas: the shower and the bathtub. These areas are significant to buyers. Try and make sure that they are in excellent condition with new fixtures.

    • Pro-Tip: You can even set the tone with candles surrounding the bathtub, and play relaxing music during a showing.

6. A Good Cleaning.

You may be surprised by the amount of buyers that are turned away from a home because of its grime. Be sure to give your bathroom a good deep cleaning. Even if you are not putting your house on the market, it is a good idea to do a deep cleaning often to reduce the spread of bacteria and germs.
