Stage a Bathroom Quick and Easy

December 10, 2014 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

When you’re selling a property, it just makes sense to stage a bathroom. If it’s already in good condition, a thorough clean and a few simple items will make a bathroom feel like a relaxing space. Quick and easy changes can help a property sell.

Does this room look familiar?

Before: Bathroom before home staging.

Here’s a staging checklist for bathrooms that you might find helpful. It covers the must-do tasks you don’t want to forget.

Even though a bathroom is usually a small space, it can have a big impact. Imagine you walk into a bathroom that’s grimy and unkept and overflowing with other people’s personal hygiene items? Eww. That will definitely turn potential buyers away.

On the other hand, imagine walking into a bathroom that’s clean and feels light and bright with plenty of storage where you can imagine your various items going. It’s a big difference.

While the photos of a home we staged in Bearspaw don’t reflect that scenario exactly (it was already clean and well kept), you can see what a difference little changes can make in how the space makes you feel.

The unstaged room feels stark and dark and is certainly nothing memorable. After staging, bright light and the slightly opened shower door draws your attention to the spa-like shower head. Artwork hung by the toilet makes the room feel more welcoming. New towels placed on the rack and shelf make the room feel cheery. With little effort, the bathroom now feels like a pleasant place to start or end your day.

See the difference home staging makes.

After: Adding the white towels and artwork as well as the white soap pumps and mini plant make this bathroom feel like a spa.

Which version of the room would you be more inclined to feel drawn to and remember? It may be small, but stage a bathroom for big impact.

For more examples of the power and impact staging can create in a space, take a look at the Set Your Stage Facebook albums featuring many before and after photos of the various homes and condos that we’ve successfully staged for sale.
