Tips for Small Pantry Organization

The pantry is essential to any kitchen, but it’s even more important in small spaces where you need all the storage efficiency possible. Without proper organization, your food storage system could turn into a chaotic nightmare that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and defeated every time you open the pantry door! Here are some ideas to help you make the most of your existing space and provide inspiration for new storage solutions.

Make Use of Open Spaces

Maximize your space by using open and empty spaces in the house. Is that wall above your kitchen sink perfect for floating shelves? Consider installing them! Is there room on top of your refrigerator that is currently collecting dust? Get some trendy containers and put it to good use. You can even store some of your lesser used items in a cabinet close by.

Invest in a Pull-Out Pantry

What good is having a fully stocked kitchen if you can’t find the key ingredients? With a pull-out pantry, your search for what’s needed will be over with everything in view. Not to mention, this kitchen feature is a huge space saver!

Organizing Food Storage Containers

We all know that Pyrex and Tupperware are perfect for storing food, but they can be a challenge to store! Stacked up high on shelves or sitting in piles around the kitchen, they can be an eye sore. All you need is a good stacking system. The bottom of each container will fit into its neighbor and you can store the lids vertically to their side. Store them at eye level so they’re easier for you to access, or else risk getting buried under an avalanche of plastic containers!

Pantry Grouping

Grouping your kitchen cabinet items into zones can make them easier to find and use. Here are some examples of how you might group things in a typical pantry:

  • Bread/Baked Goods
  • Spices
  • Bottles/Beverages
  • Snack Foods
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Breakfast Foods
  • Canned Goods

Stacking Support

In a limited space, it’s essential to stack your items. Make sure the shelves in your kitchen can support what you’re putting on them, and keep the heaviest items at the bottom so you don’t crush anything less durable underneath!
