Craftsman BungalowCraftsman , Boston

Even though this bathroom was in a 1902 craftsman bungalow, it underwent a full renovation in the 60s and did not age well.

1. The Bathroom That Helped Sell a House in One Day BEFORE: In this Massachusetts bungalow, over 100 years old, the 1960s bathroom renovation wasn’t offering much help to real estate agents.

BEFORE: Major renovations had been done in the 1960s, and it was apparent that the home’s only bathroom hadn’t really been touched since. “A blue ’60s bathroom just doesn’t quite fit in a 1900s house,” Goodman says. Additionally, all of the plumbing was corroded and needed to be replaced, and the bathroom ended up being a complete gut. The home is more than a hundred years old, with some records dating it back to 1902. Goodman wanted to honor the home’s heritage but didn’t feel tied to making everything authentic. “It was a very different way of living back then. Just because it worked for someone 100 years ago doesn’t mean it will work for you now,” she says. Since she was redesigning the home to sell, and not for a particular client, she made sure to make design choices that had wider appeal. Goodman consulted with a trusted real estate agent during the renovation about some of her design decisions. The agent offered feedback on some of the features based on her experience about what typically helps or hurts a home’s selling potential.
