What would you upgrade (on a shoestring) in a guest bath
We are planning to sell this house in the near future. The 3/4 guest bath in the basement is horrible. Think nasty safari wall paper and a black painted??! countertop with all the lovely watermarks and peeling that show you that painting a countertop is a bad idea. When we moved in 7 years ago we thought we would do something about it but could never come up with a plan that satisfied all our other needs in the basement space so of course we did nothing. Now we are going to sell and I want a bathroom that isn't going to turn the buyer off but that won't break the bank either.
Obviously we are going to strip the wall paper and paint and replace the lovely cheap vinyl strip baseboards. The toilet and shower are in decent shape. What else would you do?
Change light fixture? it is pretty dated
hardware on vanity- matches the faucet but kinda boring
Granite counter top? (I found a 30" on craigslist for $75 with a sink) or just go with laminate?
The faucet? not bad, not my style but not horrible
The vanity? It is painted white wood, in average decent shape
I am not crazy about changing the vinyl floor (maybe stick tiles?)
Put up shelves? (not much storage in the 30" vanity)
I will get new towels and bath mats and all that stuff.
