Laundry room

So, as most of you know we are selling our house. I have spent the past 10 days organizing every room, cupboard, closet, nook and cranny. It has been exhausting, but fun, and my house has never looked better. Every day I finish a project and think, "why the heck didn't I do this a year ago!!" It has taken me a lot longer than it normally would because I'm pregnant, but I'm just glad I've had as much energy as I have!

Anyway, I have been cleaning out my laundry room and am stuck on something and decided to turn it over to you for advice. This isn't a pressing issue or a problem or anything I'm stressing about, I just want some opinions.

So this is my little laundry area right here:
Since we moved in that shelf right above the washer and dryer has had paint cans on it. I finally got rid of all the paint, and am now left with a nice useable shelf.

But I don't know what to put on it.I don't want it to look cluttered, but what do you think would be most appealing for a potential buyer when they come and look in my laundry room?

There are shelves above that one where I keep all of my cleaning supplies, and I like that they are tucked away and not seen. I keep my extra laundry soap, bleach, dryer sheets, and old maid socks in this little cupboard thingy
and I have a very convenient peg board across from the washing machine for extra cleaning stuff:
So, should I put the laundry stuff from that cupboard up on the shelf and put something different in the cupboard? Should I put cleaning stuff on the shelf? What would be most interesting/appealing to you if you were looking to buy a house??

It all looks awesome. Can you organize my house next?
Just knowing Sam, maybe the bleach n' stuff could go on the shelf? Great work Melissa!

Oh, there is a lock on the outside of the laundry room! :)

Maybe some bins for sorting clean, folded laundry? I know some people fold their laundry right from the dryer and then expect family members to pick it up from that area, obviously older kids.
