The Bathroom Attraction When Selling


Many sellers under estimate how much their bathrooms play a role in how their homes are judged by visitors. It’s true, it may not be as ‘public’ as your living room, your home’s exteriors, landscaping, etc., but a bathroom can serve to make or break a good impression.

For example, just imagine a guest who’s impressed with everything he has seen so far only to be appalled on seeing grime in the corners of your bathroom. An ultra-clean bathroom contributes enormously to how your home is ‘scored’ by visitors.

So let us look at simple ways for keeping your home in sparkling condition:

One of the elements that detract from a bathroom’s appearance is soap scum on the walls, shower door, etc. You can use dryer sheets, just slightly moistened, to remove soap scum from bathroom surfaces.

Here is a tip - coffee filters can be used as an effective cleaner for bathroom mirrors. A simple toothbrush dipped in a solution of baking soda and vinegar can be used for cleaning the grout between tiles.

The combination of baking soda and vinegar works well even for clogged drains – pour a cup of each down the drain, cover the drain with a drain-cover or cloth, followed by pouring boiling water down the drain. Make your taps sparkle by wrapping them in paper towels soaked in vinegar, followed by using a dry paper towel to buff the taps.

A well-designed and well-maintained bathroom can leave a good impression on visitors as well as prospective buyers. 

Keeping your bathroom in ‘sparkling condition’ it need not be a chore – just make sure that you go about it regularly so that stains do not get a chance to build up.
