Also, if you install pantry drawers they will probably only be around chest height at most, so make sure the space above is devoted to shelving too. Folding plastic crates can stand on the floor and a very common use for these is to keep loose vegetables in that do not need refrigerating, such as potatoes, onions and carrots, since the holes in the sides ensure air circulation which prevents your food from spoiling. Totes are small baskets which are usually placed on shelves and used to store small items that may not fit in drawers - think, for example, your collection of spices, which you want to pull out all at the same time to browse through. Not necessarily food either, think about putting food mixer parts in a pantry tote - these otherwise often kick around loose on your pantry shelves and create clutter.
Is having a pantry really important? Certainly, you can have two reasons why you need to have one. First, it is for household convenience. Looking for all food-related stuff would be there. Second, a pantry may serve as a one-stop shop of everything you need especially during special events or in instances of having unexpected visitors. If your pantry is well-planned, you can simply sit back, relax and nothing will go wrong if you will need something in the household like toilet paper. If your pantry is prepared at all times, you need not to worry if ever hard times come. Whether you become jobless, get sick or met an accident, your useful pantry will be there to feed you and comfort you in almost everything you need.
The metal pantry shelving systems, are usually based on long, open, and metal shelves designed to be easily installed with only a few screws, and are the best option for installation beginners. Wooden shelves for the pantry can be found in all varieties of natural fibers, including Oak, Pine, Maple, and even Bamboo. These are a little more difficult to install, as they require some carpentry skills, but can be personalized to fit any style of existing kitchen decor. Plastic units are pre-casted, require no installation, and offer limited personalization.
3. Clean any dust or dirt off of each item as you go. 4. If something has lost its label, but you know for certain what it is, make either a handmade (or digital created) label for easy recognition and mount it to your container. 5. The best part about this process - even if it is time consuming, is that it only has to be done twice a year. Plan to do it in the Spring and Fall. 6. Clean the shelving and walls thoroughly with a solution of warm water and mild soap, drying them with a towel and by letting the shelf surfaces dry thoroughly. Preparation - Pantry Space Once you have removed everything, cleaned and prepared your pantry space, you are ready to start re-organization. This is the fun part.
