Organised Pantry Inspiration

I have a friend has just moved and soon I will be revamping her pantry, I’m so excited.  Yes imagine me squealing like a kid in a lolly shop excited…. come on… I’m The Organised Housewife, things like this excite me!!  The pantry is one of the smallest rooms/cupboards in the home that usually generates a lot of traffic and something we need to use every single day. Pantries come in all different shapes and sizes so it’s important to utilise the space you have effectively, keep it practical, tidy and organised so you can easily find what you need and see when items need replenishing. I’ve compiled some of my favourite pantries to inspire me to organise my friends pantry, hopefully you will be able to find some pantry inspiration too!  Even if you have a smaller pantry area, I’m sure you will find one way that works for you and your home!

Labels

Labelling all the containers makes it easy for people to find exactly what they are looking for and also gives the pantry a sleek look. You can use a set of pantry labels on your containers, or order personalised vinyl labels for your specific needs. Or if you have lovely writing you could handwrite them as the home edit have done below.

Pantry via a thousand words.

Stackable Containers

One way to gain some extra space is by layering and stacking containers. As a bonus, it also makes your pantry look pretty too. It is simple to do and declutters the pantry.

Drawers

Just because food is traditionally stored in cupboards, doesn’t mean that it always makes the most sense. This shows how drawers act as incredible food storage solutions because they provide easy access to contents in both the front and back of the cabinet space.

Tubs

Categorising food and dining products within everyday plastic tubs to create inexpensive “drawers” that pull out to provide access to the items in the back of deep shelves is an excellent idea.  Tubs are also a great cabinet solution because they can be easily removed and cleaned or restocked at a moment’s notice.

Doors

The use of the doors in our pantry is a useful way to clear up some room on the shelves. The spice racks on the doors ensure that the shelves have a bit more room. You could add

Shelf Inserts and Turntables

Turntables and shelf inserts are a great way to increase your space in a pantry and make all your food items more accessible.

Walls

Use all your space wisely.  Putting little shelves onto the wall for things you want at easy reach.  Make, Bake, Celebrate has used sink caddies and 3M velcro dots to put them on the wall. This idea works well as she is storing light items in the caddies.

I love an organised party and you are right labelling food really helps to keep things organised.

I also like to use clear containers as you can clearly see things at a glance.

Hi Deb, I’ve just started using the new Decor containers that have snap handles, they were recently 50% off at Woolworths and I’ve also seen them at Big W. I actually really like them, a few different shapes to choose from and they are see-through! They are called Decor Match up Clips – https://www.decor.com.au/kitchen/storage/

Hello. I have a deep pantry and struggle to get to the back items and most of the time they get forgotten. I dont know what to do and have tried so many different things. I am considering pull out drawers but they are tad bit costly, any suggestions?i can send pics through if you like.

Perhaps tiered shelves so that the back items are higher, or baskets that reach to the back of the shelves and which can easily be pulled out to show all the contents. Good luck, and please let me know what solutions work for you. Kat x
