Here is Leslie’s advice for Staging the Bathroom

Since most people initially just poke their head in the door – take a quick look around then go on to other rooms  – you have about 3-5 seconds to make a good impression.

This room must sparkle & shine!!!

* Make sure it is clean from top to bottom.

* Check those corners and shower doors.

* Light fixtures need to sparkle, work and have maximum wattage bulbs.

* Store personal items in another place.

* Fix leaky or dripping faucets.

* If wallpaper is peeling, remove and repaint with semi gloss paint.

* Get rid of worn, frayed towels and rugs.

 Now that this room sparkles and shines create the INVITE with a spa look.

* Layer your towels on vanities.

* Add a simple flower.

* Add a tray with candles (of varying heights) or glass jars with soaps or cotton balls.

* Layer or drape on tubs or shower seats.

  • Group in odd numbers.

* Add soaps on top of towels or next to them in containers.
