Readying for Relocation

A stylish outdoor room and updated bathrooms make a contemporary home market-ready.

Before: Outdated Bathroom

The sink, tub and tile are all in good shape, but the color scheme just doesn’t work. The light bar is too bright; it casts a harsh light over the room. Real estate expert Donna Freeman advises when selling your home, use frosted bulbs, not clear.

In the lower-level bathroom (not shown), the walls are unfinished, there is no shower curtain and the wall-mount sink makes the place look like a public restroom. Buyers do not like unfinished rooms — it makes them lower their offering price.
