Storage is a key consideration for many people who remodel their kitchens. Often updating a panty to provide more storage or even installing a pantry for the first time is on their wish list. If your kitchen renovation involved getting a new pantry, keeping it organized will ensure that you are making the most of your space. These tips will help you deal with the sometimes-challenging task of organizing your panty.
Use the Back of the Door
Space is always at a premium in pantries, no matter their actual size. Make sure your shelves stay organized by using all your space efficiently. This includes making use of the back of the panty door with a door organizer system. This is a great place to store things like spices and cans that can take up a lot of space on the shelves and easily become disorganized. Some people prefer to use the back of the door for storing snacks or the things that they reach for more often. Whatever you decide to keep there, utilize the space to give your more flexibility with your shelf storage.
Try a Library Ladder for Tall Spaces
If your panty is narrow and tall, your top shelves can easily turn into dead space, since it can be annoying to have to get a chair every time you need something. If you have a walk-in pantry, a library ladder is a great addition, since you can slide it to wherever you need to access your top shelves without any inconvenience. Stash a stepladder nearby if you don’t room for a ladder, so you can make better use of otherwise out-of-reach places.
Add Containers and Mini-Shelves to Store Food
The biggest problem with keeping your things organized in your pantry is that it gets messy when you’re constantly shifting them around. Instead, use storage containers, mini-shelves, and even lazy Susans to keep your items in order and easy to access.
