When staging a bathroom you want to think like the buyers that will be viewing your home. Would you want to see a stranger's line of facial care products? By clearing off the counters of all body care products, toothbrushes, makeup, et cetera, you can really depersonalize the space and make it easier for potential buyers to see the room and imagine their own belongings there. Store and organize these items somewhere out of sight so they don't hinder your chances of a sale. Clean, now that everything is up the countertop, we can give it a thorough clean. Here, I am making a eco-friendly solution. Hydrogen peroxide combined with citrus, not only disinfects but deodorizes as well. You can also use white vinegar in place of the citrus. Combine two tablespoons of Hydrogen peroxide, a juice of a lemon or lime and mix with four cups of water. Grab a rag and dip it into the solution and start cleaning. Don’t forget to buff out the bright works. Here’s an easy tip for cleaning stains out of the sink. Close the drain, sprinkle baking soda, fill the sink with a little bit of warm water and start scrubbing in a circular motion, rinse and wipe. To clean the mirror, grab a dab towel and put a splash of white vinegar on it and wipe down the mirror. After wiping the mirror with a dab towel and vinegar, grab a paper towel and wipe the mirror to get all the streaks out. After a thorough cleaning, now we’re ready to stage. On the wall next to the sink, I salvaged a shelving unit that I found at a local garage sale. Here’s how I did it. Start with a hot glue gun and apply glue on the outside perimeter of the shelving unit. I then applied a graphing paper on the outside on top of the hot glue. Then with a utility knife, I trimmed the outside edges. To mount this unit, I applied a couple of D ring picture hangers. To mount the unit, I’m going to use a couple quick mount thumbnails. Now that the shelf is up, I’m going to accessorize it with candle bowl and battery operated candles, a picture frame, and three spa towels. Here’s our tip on how to fold it. First, lay out a hand towel, crease once in the middle, now bring the other side over and crease firmly with your hands, and simple just start rolling. Now stack three in a pyramid shape. You don’t have to break a bank on staging, most of these items you can find around your house. I’m going to start accessorizing the countertop with a bouquet of flowers and candles. To give a bathroom a good scent, I made some homemade potpourri, in a nice saucer, add a handful anise, nutmeg and a couple of sprinkles of vanilla extracts. This will give the bathroom a vibrant, earthy smell. To the right of potpourri, I added a photo frame and added a picture that I cut out from a magazine, it’s easy, let me show you. Open up a magazine, find a picture you like. Trace and cut a template, exactly fitting the picture frames’ dimensions. Place the photo in the frame and there you have it. By cleaning and staging, this bathroom is now ready for the real estate market place presenting it’s best to potential homebuyers.
