Is Your Bathroom Preventing You From Selling Your Home?

Posted on

When you placed your home on the market, you were more than confident it would sell. However, after a countless number of buyers have made complaints about the bathrooms in your home, it might be time to take a second look. The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the entire house. While many buyers are willing to make some changes, they want a bathroom that at least has good bones.

Take some time to consider whether or not your bathroom is preventing you from selling your home:


Determining if a lack of storage is the problem with the bathrooms in your home doesn't even require you to set foot in your bathroom. Just think about whether or not your countertop is cluttered with all your hygiene products or whether you have to travel to another room in order to get the items you need to use in your bathroom. If you're frustrated with space, potential buyers will also be frustrated.

Consider replacing the cabinet beneath your sink. In many older houses, this area was just a large open space lacking one important storage tool, drawers. Consider updating your under-sink cabinet to a unit that has both cabinet space and drawers. This small addition is easy enough to do on your own and will significantly increase your storage space.


For many people, the bathroom isn't just a place to freshen up and prepare for the day. The bathroom is also a place to unwind and relax. The more appealing and relaxing your bathroom feels to potential buyers, the more likely they are to like your bathroom. Enhancing the ambiance in the bathrooms in your home is how you can make the space more appealing.

Enhancing the ambiance begins with personalizing the space with decorative elements. For example, for a spa-like appeal, hang plush, white towels, add candles, fresh flowers and soothing scents, like lavender, in your bathroom.

Even though these are decorative elements that will be removed when you sell the home, it offers potential buyers a visual of the bathroom's potential. When you can get buyers to see your home's potential, that's a real success.

Don't let your cluttered or uninviting bathroom be the reason you are unable to sell your house. It doesn't take a lot of time or money to enhance the look and functionality of your bathroom to make selling your home, easier.
