Your Outdated Bathroom Could Be Killing Your Home Sale


Sit back and think about the last time you stepped into an outdated bathroom. You may have noticed the discolored tiles, the water-stained faucets and even the old dirty bathroom cabinet that just barely fits. If you’ve seen or have this bathroom, you’re not alone. However, when it comes to selling your home, this type of bathroom may be killing your deal. This blog will give you some quick solutions to an ultra-fast remodel that will help your potential buyers sigh and not cringe.

Let’s talk paint first. Everyone knows a fresh coat of paint is the fastest way to update a room or space without costing you an arm and a leg. Don’t stay in the frame of mind, “the new owners will just change it.”  While this may be true, a fresh neutral color can make or break your sale. Ask any designer what the fastest fix would be, and they’ll most likely advise you to throw up a new shade of beige or any other fresh, clean coat.

A new vanity doesn’t require a whole lot to install. Just be sure to find one that fits your specifications. Measure your faucet and handle openings. What you’ll find is most of these are pre-cut and standard for almost any fit. A new vanity can completely change to look of the whole room. Sure you invest a little money. But, it can create a bit more interest that could eventually lead to a sale. DECOLAV offers bathroom vanities for even the most discerning of tastes.

If you’re considering a mirror replacement, you’ll most likely have to prep the walls too. Chances are the old mirror will leave too much havoc behind with discoloration and debris on the wall. If you want to attempt changing out the mirror as an upgrade, you can almost bet; there will be a need for cleaning up the wall with a new coat of paint or another resurfacing. Mirrors also create a large space. If you are looking into a small bathroom, you can instantly expand it with a great mirror.

When your potential buyers walk into your bathroom, and it’s not riddled with mold or sporting the 1970’s seashell shaped sink, they’ll be more likely to become more serious prospects. There’s a lot of ways you can update this space with little out of pocket. Just open your imagination and think of the possibilities. Most rooms in a home can be left, but, the bathroom is a space that will need to be turn-key in most situations.
