THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS: BATHROOM EDITION
If you are trying to sell your home, it is important to make sure that every room looks fantastic; the less someone has to do to make your house feel like their “home”, the more they will be to put in an offer and the more they will be willing to enter into a bidding war. We have discussed the kitchen and bathrooms at length, but this article will focus on the less obvious details of bathroom design.
(1) WHERE DO I PUT THE SHOWER HEAD?
As an initial matter, we certainly hope you know to put your shower head behind some sort of barrier (that was a joke, stop taking notes). This author can’t be the only person who has ever been annoyed that the shower head was not high enough (and this author is not a particularly tall person), we want a calming shower as opposed to having to twist and bend to get our whole body covered in that glorious hot water; just raise the shower head about a foot or so and you’re golden).
(2) TOILETS MATTER, A LOT
It’s perfectly normal to avoid giving too much thought to your toilet, but the fact of the matter is your toilets will see a lot of use over time (if it’s not, see a doctor because something is wrong with you). Additionally, while it’s not a particular pleasant topic, you will be spending an extended period of time on your toilet about twice a day – you don’t have to go for broke and get some crazy high-end model from Japan that reads you the news but consider investing in something comfortable and sleek (to the extent that toilets can be stylish).
(3) TOWEL RACKS – LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
This is getting awfully autobiographical, but there is nothing more ridiculous (ok, that’s an overstatement) than having to exit the shower, drip water all over your floor, walk to grab a towel, and then walk back to the shower; why on earth aren’t they by the shower in the first place? Nobody is walking into the bathroom and grabbing a towel if they aren’t wet… and unless you have completely failed at hygiene, you’re not getting wet from the toilet or the sink. Use common sense and place your towel racks where they belong, it’s 2019 and we’re not Neanderthals.
At the Chernov Team we understand that knowledge is power, and the devil is in the details; small details have a big impact. At the Chernov Team we know that whoever comes to the table most prepared leaves with the most, and the Chernov Team always leaves the table with the most.
