Our house was designed by a man, for a man.

Our bathroom is dark, boring and has cheap mirrors and tile. Need to put house on the market this spring and I want to give the bathroom a facelift.

I love the title of your dilemma! This is an easy fix: replace the tile with a glass mosaic, remove all but the two mirrors above the sinks and frame them with molding. Update the light fixtures with chrome ones to match your faucets. Paint the walls a neutral color and add some white rugs, towels and robes with soaps and sponges in glass jars for the spa-like look and feel that both homeowners and buyers want today.

It has good bones, but for me the lighting should be replaced and the rust colored tiles changed in the first bath. Put a bamboo roman blind on the window even if you don't need the privacy, it will help finish it. Is there any blue in the second vanity to pull from the blue tiles? The second bath needs new lighting. I wouldn't spend too much.

I would leave it as is. Your buyer may love it, and if not, they will want to put their personal stamp on it. Dimming the overhead lights and accessorizing as suggested with towels and jars etc will be enough to soften the room. The cost of revamping the backsplash, lights, mirrors etc. won't increase your sale price by much, and probably won't cover the cost of the changes or headache.

I agree with Amy. I think the bathroom looks quite nice and just styling with new fluffy towels, a fern, upmarket toiletries etc will be enough.

Having just sold and purchased a home within the last year, I would not overthink these bathrooms too much. As a buyer the most important thing to me about bathrooms was that they were CLEAN and the fixtures were in good working order. You'd be shocked at how many homes were not.

It is not a bad bathroom, you won't gain anything by redoing it. In fact I just saw rust, with accents of green and plum in a very expensive custom home.

Old post. Wonder how it turned out?
