On to part deux of the bad real estate photo segment. If you are just joining us, please refer back to February’s post concerning the aggravation I have with real estate agent photographs and the purpose to this ongoing rant.
This month’s topic: BATHROOMS! (They come complete with sinks, tubs, toilets, ‘n’ stuff!)
I had to include this picture as the turquoise floor first threw me for a loop but them I looked a little closer. What do you see?
By golly, this shower comes complete with shower brush and convenient toilet paper holder just outside the door!
I would love nothing more than to start criticizing architects and builders after seeing this photo but I still had to post it as every real estate agent needs to know that when you are taking pictures of a bathroom, pick up the rugs. Show Me The Floor! Not only are the rugs distracting but remove a few of the “extra” plants in the room so people can focus on the room itself.
In case you have never seen one before, this is a sink. An ordinary, no flair, basic stock item sink. So why am I looking so closely at it?
Showers come three ways: Needing a shower curtain, having a shower door, or simply being a walk in shower with a slight sloped floor for drainage. So wasting precious photo opportunities on something as ordinary as this shower door is pointless.
Again, it’s a shower tub and it’s tiled. I get it!
A quick notation in the comments section saying ‘Jetted tub’ would have sufficed.
This one took me awhile to figure out as there isn’t a lot to go on in terms of sizing so I’ll let you stew on this one for a bit.
Alright. Final pet peeve in regards to bathroom pictures. DO NOT be standing in the reflection! Stand off to the side and if you have to, use the mirror to reflect the room as it will give you more light and make the room feel bigger.
