Many home buyers feel slightly uncomfortable looking at bathrooms while touring homes. Buyers will spend more time in the kitchen, living room and bedrooms than they will in a bathroom. We suspect they don't want to think about what usually goes on in the bathroom. Bathrooms are not generally a place where strangers share communal experiences. So, they poke their heads in the door -- often without stepping foot in the room, like if they don't actually step into the bathroom, they're not really in the bathroom -- glance left to right, and leave. That takes all of three seconds. So, that's what you've got to impress a buyer -- three seconds. Sellers can spend hours staging a bathroom for that three-second reaction.

The effect we're going for is to create a spa-like experience. Spa accessories are related to water and nature. So we think Asian influence and choose items in tranquil, soft colors. We incorporate contrasting textures by combining smooth surfaces with rough material such as polished pebbles nestled at the base of an aloe vera plant.

Below are types of spa accessories we select to market your bathroom space:

  • Towels, rugs, wash cloths
  • Bamboo or wooden trays
  • Candles in various sizes
  • Green plants
  • Small water fountains
  • Scented soaps
  • Glass containers filled with cotton balls or Q-tips
  • Ribbon and rough twine
  • Twigs and berries
  • Sea shells
  • Fluffy white robe
  • Padded satin hanger
  • Creams, lotions, shampoos or bath salts with unusual or antique packaging
  • Sea sponges and bath brushes.

Less is better and we think simplicity. We start by layering a few towels on the rack by artfully folding in thirds a larger towel for the bottom and place a smaller towel on top. We create displays by grouping items together in odd numbers such as 1, 3 or 5, varying the height of candles and jars. We may use a white robe on a padded hanger and hang it on the door or from the shower door; place a stack of folded towels on a bamboo tray and arrange a few unwrapped bars of scented soap next to the towels. We place memory foam rugs next to the bathtub or shower, and use greenery sparingly to add life and color. To complete a uniquely relaxing bath space, we arrange bath products, drop a few flower petals around them. Depending on the space we may place a water fountain for peace and tranquility.

Attract More Buyers

A staged home creates a “buzz” in the real estate community. Real estate agents will show a staged home more often to prospective buyers – because it shows well. Buyers ask for and want to see staged properties because they are in ‘move in’ condition.
