When you’re selling your home, whether it’s a house for sale in Turtle Ridge, a townhome for sale in University Park, or a home for sale in Woodbridge or Westpark, you’re going to need to stage it to make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers – and the bathroom is one of the make-or-break rooms.

How to Stage a Bathroom When Your House is for Sale

Aside from decluttering and cleaning, which are the first two things you need to do (your bathroom needs to be spotless!), it’s a good idea to make the most out of what you have to work with.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Put trash cans and cleaning supplies in a cabinet, where buyers won’t see them.
  2. Clear off the counters completely. No toothbrush holders or other personal hygiene items (except perhaps a fancy liquid soap dispenser).
  3. Leave nothing on the floor, including the bathroom scale and the bath mat.
  4. Clean out your drawers and cupboards, leaving everything only half-full (even if you have to box up or throw away some items). Buyers want to see storage space!
  5. Get a fresh shower curtain.
  6. Put out brand-new towels that you don’t use (and put them away after showings so they stay new). Think thick, white, and fluffy.
  7. Add a vase of fresh flowers or a living plant to your counter or the back rim of your bathtub.
