Next to the kitchen, home buyers are focused on the bathroom. Making some minor changes to your bathrooms, like upgrading your furnishings, can really help you to sell your home. And if you coordinate those changes with your bedroom that can make all the difference to a home buyer.

Here’s the good news – you don’t have to spend a lot for these changes to have a really big impact.

I’ve got a few tips for you on how you can make your bedrooms and your bathrooms work better for your future buyer.


Let’s start in the bathroom. Because the room is small, staging a bathroom doesn’t have to involve a whole lot of work.

Getting the feel right can be as simple as buying decorative soaps and putting them in clean, attractive soap dishes. You can put out a matching set of towels and have some lovely hand-towels for people to use to wash their hands.

Now You might want to coordinate the shower curtain with a matching bath rug to give your room an extra overall “put together” kind of look. Just make sure that the rugs and towels you use are clean and dry.

Don’t leave any dirty clothes or laundry in the bathroom, and if something smells, be sure to toss it in the laundry room or in a deodorized laundry hamper.

Now, let’s take a look at the bedroom. Plumping up a room with a new bedspread, comforter, throw blanket, pillows and shams can give your bedrooms a clean, updated look.

Matching lampshades give the room symmetry, even if the lamp bases don’t match. A small area rug can add color to your bedroom, even if it’s on top of a regular rug.

Or here’s another idea: try putting a fresh coat of paint for a splash of color.
