How to Organize a Pantry of Any Size

Thursday, August 4, 2022

Ready to take the plunge on kitchen pantry organization? The first step is to remove all your dry goods from your space, then sort and categorize them before tossing anything expired. Next, measure your shelves and purchase any necessary pantry organization containers. Whether you're on the hunt for a pantry can organizer, pantry lazy suzan, pantry snack organizer, or pantry storage shelves, we have the solutions to get you NEAT. Deciding exactly which of those pantry storage solutions you need, will be determined by the size of your space and the types of food you typically store. 


Cabinet Pantry Organization

One of the trickiest types of pantries to organize is located in the small upper cabinets of a kitchen. A kitchen pantry storage cabinet is typically shallow, which can make it difficult to find the best pantry storage containers for the space. Don't worry, we've got your back! Utilize small baskets, turntables, canisters and a pantry shelf organizer like our acacia riser, to maximize space. If your pantry storage cabinet calls for more narrow deep pantry organization, our small grid baskets are ideal.

Reach-in Pantry Organization

Small closet pantry organization can be mastered with the use of a few standard pantry storage solutions. Start with baskets to contain your most commonly used categories, then add a riser at eye level for any canned goods or bottled items. Low on space? Utilize the back of your door by adding a kitchen closet organizer. Don't forget the floor. Oversized baskets are one of the best pantry organization containers for corralling non-food items at ground level.

Walk-in Pantry Organization

The hardest task when implementing pantry organization in a large space, is planning the layout of your pantry storage containers. Decide on your focal point - canisters are a great one - and place it at eye level. Ground your pantry storage with one or two rows of baskets and use turntables for oils and vinegars to make use of awkward corners. Don't forget to add labels! They are key to keeping everyone in your home on the same page and ensuring your pantry organization system will last.

Say goodbye to expired food and overbuying. With pantry storage systems and kitchen pantry storage containers in place, you'll be able to see what you have and meal prep in a breeze. Feeling overwhelmed? Pantry organisation doesn't have to be scary. Start your kitchen pantry storage journey by addressing just one category and adding in one or two pantry storage organizers. We bet you won't be able to stop there!
