If a warm cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate is key for you to start your morning off on the right foot, let us help make it easier for you! Our organizing and storage experts at Closet & Storage Concepts, serving the greater Philadelphia and South Jersey area, are here to help you start your morning off on the right foot.

Stashing the Stash

There are a ton of storage options to help you sort ground coffee beans, tea bags, and other necessary ingredients. We recommend using airtight containers to store items like marshmallows, chocolate chips, and cinnamon sticks. Glass containers are particularly elegant and are very durable. They are also great for visibility – no more hunting around in the morning. Keep these containers in a cupboard near your coffee maker or create a space in your kitchen pantry.

Pantry Organization

If you want to keep your countertops clean and clear, you can use your pantry to store items. To keep items for your coffee station organized, use baskets and bins to group items together. You can put the containers you use for your tea, coffee beans, and sugar in a basket with handles to make it easy to reach in and pullout your items. Go one step further with a customized pantry. Our experts can incorporate pullout drawers and sturdy shelving to keep your morning beverage items organized and easy to access.

Mug & Cup Storage

Keep mugs, teacups, and to-go cups in picture perfect order. Make the most of your cabinets with extendable shelves. These shelves can help double your cabinet space and are perfect for keeping shorter items. You can also add hooks to the underside of your shelves so you can hang mugs from their handles, leaving the bottom clear for other mugs or supplies like coffee filters.

Try a Tray

A small tray can keep dispensers for ground cinnamon, sugar, and creamer, extra spoons, saucers, and napkins. The tray also makes it easy to transport around your home (hello, breakfast in bed). Want to enjoy your cup of coffee in your office? Just take your tray with you and you’ll have everything you need.

Add Color and Don’t Spare The Details

Make over your pantry with decorative molding or choose a warm wood finish. Use dainty containers to keep coffee cream spoons and bring out the silver for a luxurious morning wake up call! Choose a backing for your pantry cabinets and shelves in a bright color or interesting texture. Using a contrasting color to your cabinet or shelving units will add a dramatic touch.
