Pantry cabinet ideas and pantry organization
A well-organized food pantry can be any size. Most long-life products, such as canned food, spices or ingredients for baking, do not take up much space and do not require a pantry cabinet with a large distance between shelves. A lower level of the cabinet can be filled with original baskets and use them for storing chips, cornflakes or the likes. If you haven’t got enough kitchen cabinets or simply the space is not enough – use the walls and go vertical. You can still have a good pantry organization with open pantry shelves, and you will always have a very good idea what products need to be bought. A good pantry organization idea for the pantry cabinet is to group your products and packages by category. Use the inner space of the kitchen pantry cabinet door for hanging organizers for spices or small jars.
