They say the kitchen in the centre of your home, so if this is true it means that your pantry is the center of your kitchen. Organization is key when it comes to making things easy in the kitchen. You’re much better off when you are able to make a functional pantry. You can make the most out of your pantry space with versatile shelving. Your pantry should be practical but also look good, with some decor and personalized touches to make it your own. Depending on the space you have available, you may want to paint the area or add some lighting – unleash your creativity when speaking to someone from our expert team to design a functional pantry.

Shelving (examples: open, stair-step, adjustable, pull out shelves and deeper shelves)
Open shelving is an extremely user-friendly way to have easy access to the items that you use the most, plus you can have hidden compartments to store your goods. Stair-step shelving is a cool idea that can help you to maximize space. With the stair-step arrangement, you are able to make items in the back more visible. Adjustable shelving gives you flexibility. You are able to change your shelving and use your space wisely.

Drawers
You can fit a lot into a small space when you use drawers. Everything is within reach and you just have to slide them forward to get to them.

Mason Jars
Not only are they good for summer cocktails, you can use them to store food as well. You can buy them in cases for a reasonable price at your local store. They come in a variety of sizes, so you can fit pasta, herbs, spices, and jams. It’s not only practical but it’s easy on the eyes – you can find what you want easily.

Spice rack (Wall-Mounted)
A wall mounted spice rack is a good way to save space but also keep your items all in one place. Make sure to label them appropriately.

Labels
Preferably chalkboard labels – these will help keep your pantry organized. Once something is finished or you are refilling it with a new product, you can change the name on the label to keep it updated.

Pegboard
This popular storage option is great in a pantry. You can use it to store your utensils, pots, and pans.

Slide-out wine racks
If you want to add a touch of elegance to your space, you might be interested in a slide-out wine rack. This beautiful arrangement is perfect for people who enjoy a glass of wine.
