First of all: If you have a pantry, you are so blessed. Pantry organization will be easy for you. If you dont have an "official" pantry; not to worry, dedicate a nearby closet for kitchen supplies, pantry staples and storage. You will probably need to buy some sort of shelving for this "personally-designed" pantry. Of course, as with all de-cluttering and organization; you will need to remove all the items in your pantry first. Sorry, but pantry organization follows all the same organizational rules, but take it in small, do-able steps and you will be organized in no time. 1. Throw away the old and/or relocate those items that found their way into your pantry that dont belong there.
Modern pantries have evolved from the "butteries" of the old West, and now have a wide range of shelving options available to home owners. Not to be confused with normal kitchen cabinetry, the pantry is often used as a storage area for dry, or canned, foods that do not require refrigeration or constant use. This storage space usually takes on the appearance of a closet filled with food items and the occasional cleaning tool. However, it is the design and manipulation of space that allows each pantry to be unique, as well as hold varying amount s of food items. Pantry shelving system is the ubiquitous choice when first considering how to properly divide pantry space into effective and efficient means of storage.
The style of your kitchen pantry can be as varied as your design. Most pantries are a small room carved out of the kitchen space and have standard walls and a small standard door for access. Dont have enough room for a pantry? If possible, when you are designing your kitchen, borrow the space from an adjoining mudroom or laundry room, to enlarge your kitchen space. You will be spending more time in your kitchen than you will in other small utilitarian rooms. You can also build a food pantry to match the rest of your cabinets. Many cabinet makers offer floor-to-ceiling pantry cabinets of varying sizes which allow you to add the option of a kitchen pantry within a small kitchen space. While you gain a significant amount of storage space with a pantry cabinet, you do lose some counter space, but the trade-off may be worth it to you. A cabinet pantry will look very upscale in any design and should be considered as an option when you design your new kitchen.
After you have installed your pantry shelving, take a look at what you store in your pantry and think about additional ways to organize them. Keep items you use closer to the front and items you do not use as often to the back. Consider purchasing a few storage containers to contain those smaller items that seem to scatter easily. If your pantry also serves as storage for a broom or mop, consider installing holders on the back of the door designed specifically to hold these items. As you are organizing, be sure to keep similar items together. For example, designate one shelf for small kitchen appliances and another for the cans of food. Many people tend to ignore organizing their pantry since it is most often hidden behind closed door and out of sight. However, organization of your pantry does not just make it "look good" - it can add additional storage space to your home. By adding the right type of pantry shelving and organizing the items on the shelves, you can maximize your space without building a bigger house.
