For many families, the kitchen is the heart of family time. It’s the place where everyone comes together to bond and create something amazing together – food! The cooking process of any home starts with ingredients, and ingredients start on the shelves. The shelves of a kitchen pantry are one of the most important places to keep clean in any home. With an organized pantry, seamless cooking will follow. At Closet & Storage Concepts Nevada, we want you to have as much time enjoying your family while cooking and as little time sifting through the boxes and bottles to find ingredients. Here are a few tips to help keep your pantry organized at all times:
If you don’t already have several different forms and sizes of storage for pantry food, consider upgrading your pantry to include some. When it comes to shelves, have at least 3 different heights included in your pantry space. For taller and bulkier items, throw them on the shelf that has more height. Include shorter shelves for items like canned foods, sauces, and condiments. Add in different sizes of baskets to hold fruit, snacks, or other miscellaneous items. By doing this, you will capitalize on every square inch of space in your pantry even if you only have a small corner of your kitchen available for those foods.
Your pantry design doesn’t have to be solely focused on storage and practicality. Choose wood finishes and cute baskets to make it aesthetically pleasing as well. By creating a space you enjoy looking at as well as spending time in, you’ll want to devote more time to keeping it looking clean and organized.
Now that you have a pantry that has a diverse storage system and fits your style preferences, it’s time to focus on how all of the food is going to be placed in the pantry. Create different sections to focus on. Place the things you use most often on the most accessible shelf, and place the things you use less frequently down below or up high. Designate one basket as the snack basket, another basket as the fruit basket, and another for baking goods. By designating each basket, shelf, drawer, and cabinet for a specific food, you’ll allow yourself to get into a habit of placing things in their rightful place when you bring more home from the grocery store.
