How to Make your Bathroom Feel like a Spa
Bathrooms and kitchens are the two rooms that can sell a home. It's critical to make a good impression in these two spaces. However, a full bathroom remodel may not be in the budget - or something you want to tackle - before selling your home. Even without a remodel, there are a few bathroom additions that can create the spa like feeling so many people desire. The good news is you will be able to move many of these touches to your new home!
Plush bathroom towels
If you haven't indulged in new towels for awhile, now is the time! Pick up some plush, crisp white towels. In addition to neatly folding these on towel racks, you can fold a large towel over the edge of the tub, as well as a few hand towels by the sink to give that spa atmosphere. Just make sure you toss the crumpled towel you used this morning in the hamper before showings.
New shower curtain
A new shower curtain may be just what you need to transform your space. Look for a light solid colored curtain with some texture for the most spa-like effect. A bright white shower curtain can lighten your bathroom space, as well as give a fresh clean feel to the room.
Invest in a few new plush, soft rugs to put by the bathtub and shower. Once again, sticking to a monotone, neutral color scheme here is key. Rugs will add a bit of warmth and a cozy feel to the bathroom.
Adding sleek, coordinating and cohesive bathroom accessories is a relatively inexpensive way to give your bathroom a spa like feel. Remember the key here is not to have too much clutter on the bathroom counter - so don't go overboard with the accessories!
Stylish toilet brush
Has your toilet brush seen better days? A sleek, stylish and minimalist toilet brush will help you keep your bathroom clean as well as not hampering the design of the room.
Motion sensor trash can
While your house is on the market, chances are you'll still be accumulating trash in the bathroom. Choose a sleek covered wastebin, preferably motion sensored for the germaphobes, to keep the sight and smell of trash contained.
Rain shower head
This is one bathroom improvement that will stay behind in the home, but can be a selling feature for potential buyers. Switching out the shower head can be a relatively inexpensive upgrade that can still pack a powerful spa punch. A new rain shower head, instead of the older water stained head you have, could be the perfect final touch to a spa like bathroom.
