Bathroom Fixtures

Best thing to do:
Monica: Get rid of outdated bathroom fixtures like pink toilets and seashell sinks.
Elizabeth: I agree. Please, no colored tubs or toilets. It will only make your real estate agent’s job a lot harder.

Worst thing to do:
Monica: Remodeling an outdated bathroom and leaving a colored bathtub in order to save money. Reglazing a tub costs around $300 in most parts of the country and can save the day when it comes to keeping costs down for a remodel.
Elizabeth: Buyers love white toilets, tubs and sinks.
