The bathroom is one space in your house that everyone spends a good portion of their day and one of the spaces that prospective buyers will respond well to if they find it inviting. Depending on the condition of the bathrooms in your house, there are a variety of treatments that you can apply to boost up its charisma.

First, look at the condition of your counters and cabinets. If your counter tops are worn, consider replacing them; there are many inexpensive options for replacement counters. If the laminate counter tops are in poor condition and you can't afford to have them replaced, consider painting them. There are some good products for this purpose and will look much better than a worn counter surface. Likewise, if your cabinet doors are looking dated or discolored they can be refinished or refaced. If your bathroom just has a vanity, then shop around to see if just replacing that is in your budget.

Next, paint your bathroom. Make sure you fill any holes in the walls and seal any seams around the bath, shower, or sink with fresh silicone caulking first. A fresh coat of paint brightens up the room, even if you paint it the same color as before. Remember to paint the ceiling as well; freshly painted ceilings look clean and reflect the light in a small room better. Refrain from getting too adventurous with stenciled or wallpaper borders; a new owner will likely have different tastes than you.

In addition, baskets or bins that can go in the cupboards to organize bathroom items will help keep the room organized. When your house is being shown, all personal items should be off the counter tops and toilet tank so it is imperative that there is ample room for these items to be stored away.

Now, to complete the fresh new look, purchase mats or rugs, counter top accessories, and a shower curtain in colors that accent the colors in your bathroom. Consider having an extra mat or rug to put down for when your house is being shown so that it looks fresh and unused. A vase on the counter top with fresh or silk flowers makes the room more inviting as well. Finally, fill a basket with rolled guest towels and fancy soaps or lotions to place on the counter top to give your bathroom a luxurious spa atmosphere that any prospective buyer would find inviting.
