Simple ways to get your bathroom ready for an inspection

The bathroom can be a deal break for some buyers. If it’s unappealing you may have trouble luring people to view your home and in turn a harder time in trying to sell it.

Here’s some tips on how to turn your bathroom in a space people will love –

Deep clean

We all know bathrooms are prone to build-ups of grime and mould, in addition to everyday loss of shine. Over time, we often become used to this, but a deep clean is a must prior to selling. Get right into all the nooks and crannies to leave them spotless. Use grout cleaner between the tiles, bring your fixtures to a shine, and use a quality bathroom cleaner to take care of the rest. You might consider getting a cleaner in first to get the basics out of the way so you can focus on the things that require closer attention.

Paint

It’s normal to find fair wear and tear in bathroom paint caused by high humidity levels. Paint can be prone to peeling and discoloration, so applying a coat or two of quality bathroom paint goes a long way toward making sure your bathroom not only inspection ready, but is a space that stands out to potential buyers.

Colour

There are plenty of opportunities to make your bathroom pop by adding some colour to it. Bright towels, hand towels and bathmats are a great start. You could also hang some art or add a timber stool to add texture.

Plants

A few well-chosen plants can bring a sense of tropical abundance to your bathroom. This can make the bathroom feel less like a forgotten space and more like a thriving, nourishing environment. Plants that grow well in bathrooms are ones that are happy with filtered light and humidity. Popular choices include spider plants, which are easy to maintain, fast growing and have striking green and yellow striped leaves. They work great in any pot, but really stand out in hanging pots. The Zanzibar gem is another great choice, with this deep green leaves and hardy nature making it perfect for any indoor space. Other great bathroom plants include the Boston fern, peace lilies and orchids of you want to add some flowers.

Once your bathroom’s ready to go, you’ll be well on your way to having a great inspection.
