2. Take storage from floor to ceilingAdequate storage is one of the most important things buyers are looking for. If you’re re-doing your kitchen, maximise your storage potential by installing cupboards that run the full length of walls from floor to ceiling, and take them as wide as possible. Good to know: Open shelving will need cleaning and styling from time to time, so only install it in spots you can reach. Install closed cupboards in high spots and use them to store items you only use occasionally, such as storage boxes and platters.
