Prepping the Closets
Kenneth Bargers | March 2018 Newsletter
The closet — out-of-sight, out-of-mind in our every day living but for the house hunter you can be assured the doors will be opened and reviewed as available space is key to the next homeowner.
If you are selling your home, remember these guidelines to give the appearance of adequate space.
Editing – take this opportunity to remove items that are no longer wearable or in-style. If those bell-bottoms have not come back yet since the ’70’s – it is not going to happen! Consider donating to local charities to help those in need.
Organizing clothing racks – place shirts, pants, dresses/skirts on separate hanging racks.
Seasonal items – place in boxes/baskets and keep on top shelves
Floor – remove all items from the floor
Shoes – if you must have shoes on the floor – consider investing in shoe racks
Lighting – if you have closet lighting make sure the fixture is cleaned inside/out and lights are working properly
Space – the most import guideline is to show additional space for future use – regardless of clothing racks, shoe racks, shelving – give the appearance that the closet,, no matter how big or small, is more than adequate for storage.
