What You Need To Know When Redesigning Your Kitchen Pantry


A New Kitchen Pantry

Kitchen PantryIf you are remodeling your kitchen, a new pantry is one of the best things you can do to make the kitchen complete. Imagine being able to walk into your pantry and find all the ingredients you need for a last minute event. Instead of having to spend your time searching for the items you need. A kitchen pantry can get unorganized fast and you might not have known you had those ingredients at all. One of the problems with kitchen pantries is storage. They usually are not one of the priorities for space when designing a kitchen. While redesigning your kitchen, make sure you make enough room for a large pantry. You will thank yourself later. If a broom closet is the only space you can afford, then use the space wisely with modular shelving that you can change and move around. If you are able to design a walk-in pantry, you will love all the space and easy access to all your supplies.


Kitchen Pantry Storage

For the major ingredients such as sugar, flour, and rice, consider using the tip-out floor level bins. Also consider using see-through containers for the other storage items so you can see what’s in each one. For an air tight seal, the impregnated clip-top containers are a true food saver. You can use these for cereals, beans, lentils, and all kinds of pasta. The shelving in your kitchen pantry should have enough space between them so you can stack canned goods at least 2 high. and dedicate one space for your taller bottles like vinegars and oils.

Don’t Overlook The Basics For Your New Kitchen Pantry

There will need to be plenty of light in your pantry so you can see all your supplies. You might want to label the outside of the containers, as to what they contain, with a label maker. If you have enough room, your over-sized cookie sheets and large platters will need a vertical storage area. So when remodeling your kitchen, make sure the pantry has the best and most efficient use of space that you can design. Everyone in your household will thank you.
