Staging a Condo Part 3 - Bathroom

We're moving onto tips and tricks for your bathroom when staging your house.

If you missed part 1 - the kitchen, or part 2 - the living room, be sure to check them out.

I had already cleaned a lot of junk out of the bathroom by the time I took the before pictures, but there was still work that needed to be done.

First and foremost it is important for your bathroom to be CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN.  Empty the garbage, and SHINE up the faucets! This makes such a huge impact.  When I have people come over sometimes I cheat cleaning my bathroom and just shine up the sinks so it looks like I cleaned ;)

For the bathroom I bought a new shower curtain because the one that had been in here was plain white.  Take a white bathroom, add a white plastic shower curtain, and you've got...ick.  Because I was on a budget, this one came from the dollarstore.  Not exactly the sophisticated look I would like, but the colors worked.  I bought the teal towels too to add a bit of pop to the room.

I also hung a towel ring by the sink.  This wasn't there before, and it really helps add something to that wall, and is functional.

A nice soap dish/pump can also be a nice touch.  Maybe some candles. I just couldn't be bothered :)


In this condo, the laundry area is just outside the bathroom.

Before it was cluttered and messy.  I put the detergent and softener on top of the washer and dryer, and stored all the clean towels rolled up in one of the laundry baskets.  (the other two baskets I used elsewhere, you can see the one in the living room, another one will show up later in the bedroom)

Important things to remember in the bathroom:

  • Keep it clean.  SHINE your sinks!

  1. I do the same thing--shine up the sink and everything looks sparkling-fresh! :-) Your 'after' looks great!
