Let’s start with the before. There was rhyme and reason to my pantry, but it looked junky and cluttered.
You want to be able to show a potential buyer that all of their food will fit in the pantry, regardless of size. So I did a bit of organizing.
A better result, but it was still lacking something. Where’s the appeal? As you can see, there was a lot of unused space and disorganization.
How can you make this improvement better? Think outside the box and think monochromatic.
Wow, right?! I wanted my potential buyer to be wowed when they opened the pantry.
By purposefully placing items and arranging it in a much simpler way, it appears more spacious, like these lazy susans.
Use them to group like items together. You can read how I made these wooden lazy susans for super cheap!
Another tip to make you pantry appear bigger and more organized is using Glass Food Storage Jars.
You can find affordable canisters to put your baking supplies in.
Adding fun labels creates a cohesive, monochromatic look.
Displaying your pastas in jars instead of colorful boxes is another easy way to look organized.
No room in the budget for new jars?
Save old spaghetti jars! I filled them with staples.
It looks neat and organized.
If you have more time, take a moment to spray paint the lids! I did not, but they still look fine next to each other.
Take 15 minutes to organize your cans and turn the labels facing out.
What about those items that need to say in their boxes?
Use baskets or crates to hide the larger items that look bulky, like extra sauces or potatoes.
So in just a few hours, staging your pantry can make a big difference.
Remember that you want to pay attention to the details. It shows in the little things, which gives the potential buyer the impression that you have cared for this home – which I’m sure you have!
Tomorrow, I will give you the tutorial on the Lazy Susans I’ve made for this pantry as well as using the wooden crates for storage.
