Cook clutter-free with a well-designed kitchen pantry storage

Turn your kitchen into an efficient workspace by implementing these kitchen pantry storage ideas. 

The kitchen pantry is one of the most frequently visited places in any home. So, the right kitchen pantry storage ideas can turn your cooking space from chaos to calm. They help you to keep your kitchen countertops clean and clear for meal preparation and related kitchen activities. It also optimises your kitchen layout by ensuring that everything is easily visible and accessible. In short, a multifunctional pantry storage space can save your time, energy and money in the long run. 

There are four main kitchen cabinet types that can be used as elegant storage units for a modular kitchen pantry. These are wall cabinets, base cabinets, tall freestanding cabinets and corner cabinets. Here are some factors that you need to consider while designing your kitchen pantry:

  • The proximity of the pantry to the main kitchen activity area.
  • The needs of the person who’s in charge of the kitchen and cooking duties. 
  • The stackability of the food storage containers, that is, how they will fit together to allow you to use every inch of the space. Purchase rectangular, square or cylindrical containers with flat lids so that you can fit more items neatly on the same shelf.
  • The functionality of the pantry organisers should make sense for the whole family. If they are easy to access and use then your partner, kids or even your full-time help will be more likely to keep it clean.  
  • The transparency of the kitchen pantry storage solutions, that is, it should be easy for you to view what supplies are inside the containers/bins. Transparent sides also let you keep track of the stock and help your kitchen space look more uniform. 

Now it’s time to explore some latest kitchen pantry storage ideas so that new-age homeowners can move and cook with the times.
