Increasing Carolina Home Value with Pantry Storage

The kitchen is perhaps the most important room in your home. It’s the centerpiece of the main floor, acting as the gathering place for family and friends alike. Great food comes out of the kitchen, producing tantalizing smells that make everyone want to hang out in this room over any other in the home.

When it comes to selling your home, the kitchen can make or break the deal. The upgrades you add today can make a huge difference in buyer interest and even allow you to boost your asking price.

Even if you’re not selling your home, you certainly still want to increase home value and enjoy your kitchen more. Either way, consider making two kitchen upgrades: pantry shelving and premium wine racks.

Installing Pantry Shelving

There’s perhaps no more important place to have adequate storage than the kitchen. With new pantry shelving, you can store much more than just a few cans of food and boxes of cereal – you can transform the pantry into a place to store cookbooks, small kitchen appliances, cookware, wine glasses, large serving platters and more. With a nice pantry, no longer will you have to sacrifice shelf space elsewhere in the kitchen or scrounge for storage space in other rooms.

If you’re selling your home, you’ll be proud to show off the pantry to prospective buyers. If you’re not selling, your pantry will let you enjoy cooking like never before since everything you need is right at hand.

Setting Up a Premium Wine Rack

If there’s one less-common kitchen upgrade you can add to increase home value, it’s a premium wine rack. This custom feature adds charm and visual appeal to your kitchen, helping prospective buyers better imagine themselves working in and enjoying the space.

From a few wine racks on the wall to an entire wine cellar, your options are as wide and varying as the types of wines you enjoy collecting. The upgrade doesn’t have to be very costly, but since a growing number of middle-class Americans now buy wine to display instead of just to drink right away, the appeal is more wide-reaching today than ever.

According to Standard Life Bank, adding a custom wine cellar can increase your home’s value by $15,000 to $20,000. That’s an average increase of 7% of the total value of your Carolina home. Talk about a worthwhile investment! Even if you’re not moving, premium wine racks and wine cellars could be just what you’re looking for show off your ever-growing wine collection – and as an added bonus, increase your home value at the same time.
