When looking for a property, there are features that buyers want and features that are major selling factors but not necessary. Unbelievably, a buyer will occasionally pick a house even though it doesn’t quite fit the rest of their wants simply because it has a pantry. We firmly advise following these easy steps to make your pantry as appealing as possible if you are selling your property and it has a pantry.
First, clean it up
Although it may seem obvious, some people do not give their pantry any consideration before organizing an open house. Clear out everything, including the shelves, floor, and walls. You can quickly paint it or even add wallpaper once it’s empty and clean, but it’s not required. Simply line the shelves with contact paper if they are in reasonable condition.
Make an inventory to identify your true needs
We advise getting a box for trash and a box for donations. Donate it to your neighborhood food bank if you find something that is still in its original packaging and has not expired but that you are unlikely to ever use. Throw away any unique flowers that you opened four years ago and haven’t used since. Tell the truth about your real usage. It’s important to keep this as simple as possible.
Determine the issues and find solutions to them
Each pantry has its own particular problems. Do you have any difficult-to-access spots in the pantry? Lazy Susans, pull-out drawers, and other accessories are widely available today to help you make the most of your pantry and cabinet space. Anyone who visits your home might assume they can’t use any available space if it isn’t being utilized. Make it practical so that people can picture doing the same thing.
Make it simple to see what you have
Glass canisters, spice jars, and mason jars are essential. The more glass you have, the neater and more organized your pantry will appear. You’ll not only have a place to keep a large number of spices, but you’ll also find what you’re looking for more quickly. If you want something other than glass, use containers, boxes, or bags that suit you. Just be sure to name them so you can easily remember where everything is.
