Redecorate for Resale: Master Bath

So you're thinking about selling so you can finally relocate to the your dream home?  Take a look around your master bath.  Will it be a feature or a flaw once you put your realtor's sign out front?  When you've lived in your home for a couple of years, you get used to things that might just keep it from selling.  You don't have to spend a whole lot, but why not bring it up to speed so your home sells for what it's really worth?  Master bath's tend to return 120% on your investment!


Essentials of Master Baths:
  • Transitional styling for universal likeability
  • Kitchen height, double sink vanity
  • Updated plumbing fixtures (go for Brushed Nickel or Oil Rubbed Bronze)
  • Hard surface floor (get rid of bathroom carpet!)
  • Updated lighting
Great Upgrades that Sell:
  • Radiant Heat in flooring
  • Solid surface countertops (let us find you a remnant of granite, quartz, or Corian)
  • Glass tile and natural stone
  • Framed Mirrors (forgo the wall covering monstrosity your builder included years ago)
  • Plumbing in a universally loved color, like white or almond
A couple of options under $5,000 for your typical master bath:
Capture that Colorado feel with slate from our warehouse (just $2/square foot!  That's unheard of!), a granite remnant, and oil rubbed bronze plumbing, lighting, and mirrors.

 Keep it clean and neutral with honed and filled travertine (just $2.59/square foot from our warehouse!), shiny white ceramic tile (59 cents/square foot), a granite remnant, and brushed nickle fixtures.
