Many home purchases come with pantries that already have some sort of pantry shelving system in place, but what does a homeowner do if they want to replace these, to make it more efficient and accessible? Well, the answer can be found in any multitude of home improvement and furniture stores in your area. Pantry shelving units, can be found in national chain stores in just about every material imaginable. The most popular choices include wire shelving, pre-made wooden units, and plastic shelving systems. There are also a wide number of features that users can choose in order to simplify their designs and maximize their space. Items such as corner shelves, door shelving units, and pull-out, or sliding, pantry cabinets.
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.
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.
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.
