A bathroom makeover is a huge expense and inconvenience if you need to rip out all the old fixtures and install everything brand new. While renovation is a fantastic way to improve the value of your home, it is also a financial and logistical nightmare for virtually any property seller. If you choose to improve your bathroom without a full renovation, you will be delighted at the many flexible enhancement options offered by professional home staging.
This guide details many easy fixes that can be accomplished as part of a do-it-yourself bath makeover project.
Why Perform a Bathroom Makeover?
Traditionally, a makeover is another name for a complete rip out and renovation. This requires that all present fixtures be removed and the room decorated from the ground up with all new tiles, flooring, sinks, bathtub, shower, toilet and storage. The cost for a project like this is very high, but the statistics demonstrate that most or all of the expense should come back when the property is sold. However, the time and inconvenience of a major overhaul is difficult to imagine, especially if you only have 1 full bath in your home or have a large family.
Home staging provides strategies and techniques which can update and improve a bathroom space without much time, effort or money, making it an ideal choice as a fast and easy aesthetic tune-up for one of your most valuable spaces.
Making Over Your Bathroom
The bathroom can be enhanced using professional staging or even with DIY home staging techniques. Here are some expert suggestions to get your started on your bathroom improvement project:
Think about refinishing everything, rather than replacing anything. Counters, sinks, tubs and tiles can all be painted using special epoxy paints.
Swap out the hardware for a quick fix on storage and vanities.
Change faucets for an updated look, or at least make sure they do not drip, by replacing washers.
Always install a fresh toilet seat.
Add coordinated rugs, towels and accessories for a nice aesthetic. Never place a rug on the toilet seat or in front of the actual toilet.
Remove old mirrors and lighting fixtures and replace these necessary items with newer contemporary designs.
