What Everyone Must Know When Staging a Shower

Bathrooms, particularly the master bathroom, are one of the most important rooms to potential home buyers. Why? Well, this is a private space, where one will retreat to handle intimate and personal business. So, it’s important to make sure this room must be up kept, clean and well organized while on the market.

An organized bathroom is key

Parents will imagine bathing their children in the secondary baths, while pampering themselves with a glass of wine and bubbles in the master tub. Many potential buyers will also quickly decide if their morning routine will be improved or hampered in a bathroom. What is the lighting like? How large is the shower? Is there enough storage? Can multiple people utilize this space at the same time?

Virtually every buyer will open the shower door and look inside

Whether a shower has a curtain, or glass doors, you can guarantee that potential buyers will take a good look and decide if they, their children, or their guests, will be comfortable bathing in this space. This means that bathrooms need to be white glove clean. They also need to be well organized. Shampoo and body wash bottles, sloppy bars of soap, and shaving supplies need to be kept to a minimum. Where they are placed can also make a huge difference in the impression of how functional your shower actually is.

A shower caddy can hold everything in one place, at arms reach, help comfort potential buyers by showing this is a functional space. Bottles on the floor, or hanging off of the shower head, remind buyers that the space is awkward and may lack some storage for necessary daily supplies.

Here’s a bonus tip for kid’s bathrooms from our team…

The pocket shower caddy curtain, behind a neutral shower curtain, is a great use of vertical space. Despite a home being up for sale that doesn’t mean superheros and rubber ducks won’t be needed come bath time. With this pocketed curtain, you can utilize out of sight storage to keep the space well organized and under control quickly during an open house or showing.

Keeping organized when selling your home

One of the most important lessons homeowners can learn is that organization when selling a home is one of the keys to getting great offers. A home that appears well organized, including closets, showers, countertops, drawers, and cupboards, will appear well cared for. A well cared for home is more appealing to buyers and will likely sell for more money.
