Here are some of the home staging furniture tips for your bathroom
Spruce up your cabinets
Cabinets have an important role to play when it comes to the overall look of your bathroom. So, this means to say that if they are somehow dingy or have a drab appearance, it will likely pull down the overall vibe of the whole space.
Fortunately, you don’t need to invest a fortune on remodeling in case that your bathroom cabinets are outdated or worn out. You daub them with a fresh coat of white or pastel color paint, and doing so will give them a more updated look.
Remove stains and smudges and pay good attention to the caulking
With all the humidity, steam, and water that your bathroom has to endure on a normal day, this space in your house will inevitably face up to a handful of wear and tear over time. This may include peeling or wearing off of the caulk, mildew growth, and hard water stains.
If you see any of these unsightly things in your bathroom, you need to have them off. As for the caulk, you can buy them cheap at any local hardware in your area and are easy to apply yourself.
After you cleared everything up, it is your fair judgement if you want to bring in any home staging furniture to your bathroom, such as a chair for a corner spot or a neat vanity mirror instead. But you need to stay on top of things so no new stains will arise while your home staging campaign is running. Use a squeegee to clean up your glass shower doors after every time you shower.
Declutter Your Bathroom and Tuck-Away Personal Items
If you are decluttering other spaces in your house like the bedroom and living room space, make sure to do the same also to your bathroom areas. What does this signify? No dirty clothes or traces of any used up laundry items.
In the same way, also, keep all your toiletries out of sight. This would include your favorite perfume, your toothpaste, toothbrushes, makeup, etc. Keep them all out of sight.

Anyway, all the suggestions we gave above are practical, non-expensive measures that will help make your bathroom spaces even more appealing. Be sure to follow them and you will sell your home at a top dollar amount.
