Kitchen pantry is one of those things that can help you maintain cleanness and organization of your house. You can store food, beverages, dishes, kitchen appliances, linens and even household cleaning supplies there. You can even fit a washing machine, an iron and an ironing board there if you don’t have a dedicated laundry room. Every homeowner should consider building a pantry if they want to store their foods.
There are different kinds of pantry designs. The most practical and the most popular is a walk-in pantry. It’s a small room with different shelving units, drawers, and even a countertop. Although if a dedicated room isn’t an option you can choose a specially designed pantry cabinet that can also solve all your food storage needs. You can even occupy the space under the stairs if they are near by.
Kitchen Pantry Organization
You need to make sure your pantry organization is top notch. Otherwise, it always would look like a mess. Our main tips to step up your game would be:
- Label everything. No matter how well you’re using different pantry organizers – you need to label them in order to find things quick.
- Divide your shelves. If you store your baking sheets and cutting boards in a pantry then divide shelves and cupboards there to create more space.
- Use the best organizers for the task. Store ingredients in glass or plastic storage jars when it’s possible. That’s not only functional but also decorative.
Open shelves and shelving units are perfect for any walk-in pantry. They are easy to access, much cheaper than different drawer cabinets and could even be DIYed. The only problem is that you need to be careful when choosing the spacing of the shelves. Although you could find measurements below that would solve this problem.
Kitchen Pantry Cabinet
