Tips to Create a Perfectly Organized Pantry
As the weather gets warmer, we all start to think about spring cleaning! And one of the items on your spring cleaning list could be the pantry. But where do you start? When you are considering organizing your pantry, there are some basic tips and tricks that you can follow to ensure your pantry will come out flawless. The thing to remember is that you can have the perfect pantry, no matter the size or location!
Pantries are not just for food.
We don’t always use our pantries to store food, so it is important to identify the other uses of your pantry before organizing. Many of us store additional items in our pantries since they are typically in a central location in the home. So if you keep your broom, bags, paperwork, etc. in your pantry, be sure to design a spot for it.
Use every inch of space.
Rule number one to organizing any area is to never waste space. This includes spots that most might not think to utilize, such as the ceiling and floor. So when it comes to your pantry, you can use baskets for the ground and hooks for the ceiling can make for additional storage.
Build in sliding trays and drawers.
We often take drawer space for granted. But we also have small or loose items in our pantries that need a spot, and drawers in the pantry can help organize those smaller items.
A wide variety of compartments in varying shapes and sizes.
Pantries need to have compartments in a variety of shapes and sizes. In designing these into your pantry, you can ensure that all of your items, no matter shape or size, will easily fit into the space. For example, if you keep your baking sheets stored in your pantry, be sure to design a compartment that is tall and thin. This variety will help you to designate a specific spot for each item you need to fit.
So when you are thinking about how you wish to organize your pantry, keep these tips in mind. As a result, you will be sure to end up with the perfect pantry for your needs!
