The Staging Life: The Ugly Tub


By Nan Johnston, Southern Staging & Redesign

“There once was a lovely home in a lovely neighborhood with a lovely floor plan and an UGLY TUB!”

Seriously, we all know that Kitchens and Bathrooms are what sells a house. If they look bad or don’t function well, the house will take longer to sell and won’t bring top dollar.

So what’s a seller to do? Do they need to replace the tub or shower at a huge expense, or is there an easier less expensive solution?

Good news, you don’t have to empty the coffers to solve the UGLY TUB problem.

If your bathtub is an ugly color, hard to clean or damaged, they can be repaired or refinished and look brand new. I’m not talking about the kit you can buy at the home repair stores. I’m talking about professionals that do this every day and I’ve seen the results … they are amazing.

The process takes up to 2 days, is cost effective and can add years of life to a tub or shower. It will save a seller up to 75% of replacement cost and your prospective buyers will love the new look … maybe enough to make an offer.

This is not an advertisement for any particular method or company, however, I’ve seen the results and used this solution several times and it saved me $$$$!
