Maximize Pantry Space With These Tips

Maximize Pantry Space With These Tips

June 21, 2020

The kitchen may be the heart of the home, but it’s bound to fall into disrepair without a stocked pantry. After all, this crucial space allows you to store foods, spices, cooking implements, and more, so you can find what you need at a moment’s notice. Pantry organization is particularly essential now when many of us are spending more time at home with our families. Wondering how to maximize space and keep your cupboards from dissolving into chaos? Here are some of Closet World’s top suggestions for an orderly pantry:

Opt for Open Shelving

Tired of having to search all your cabinets and drawers in search of the one item you need? Open shelving can be the solution to your pantry organization woes. Not only does it let you display all your items so you can see what you need at a glance, but it also inspires you to stay neat. After all, if your open-shelf pantry is disorganized, everyone walking by the room can see!

Utilize the Back of the Door

If your pantry is on the small side, you might find that space is at a premium. Find more places for your possessions by taking advantage of back-of-the-door storage. Depending on your organizational needs, you can install wire racks, baskets, or even shelving. In particular, this area is ideal for spices and other items you use regularly.

Consider Your Cake Stand

Cake stands are a pretty but rarely used tool in your cooking arsenal. Fortunately, you can utilize these decorative pieces for storage as well. If you have a cake stand taking up space on your shelf, think about using it to hold smaller items such as ramekins, small bowls, or even espresso cups. You can store more items beneath the stand.

Toss the Packages

Single-use snacks often come in large packages. We’re thinking of granola bars, fruit snacks, and individual packs of chips. If you want to get back some space, consider ditching the original packaging. You can store these items in more attractive plastic bins or glass jars instead.

Get Kid Friendly

In the wake of the novel coronavirus, many of us are spending a greater number of hours at home each week. If you have kids, you might find that a large number of those hours are occupied with getting your little ones’ drinks and snacks. Save time (and keep your pantry in ship shape) by stowing kids’ food on the bottom shelf. That way, your young children can grab a healthy, easy-to-open snack whenever the mood strikes. The end result is you get more uninterrupted time to work, clean, or even enjoy a good book.
