Tips for Creating the Perfect Pantry

When you are remodeling your kitchen, you have to make a lot of decisions in a short period of time. Many homeowners know exactly which appliances they want, and they’ve spent a lot of time picking out the perfect countertops and new cabinets. They’ve even selected just the right paint color to update their space.

However, a lot of homeowners don’t take the time to think about updating the pantry. The pantry might not be the most exciting part of your kitchen, and many of your visitors will never see it, but updating your pantry can improve the functionality of your kitchen and make your day-to-day life easier.

Consider Your Space

If you want to create the perfect pantry, you can start by considering your current space. Take a few minutes to think about what works well in your current pantry and what you just can’t stand. Do you like the location of your pantry? Is it big enough to hold all of your groceries? Is there any room to expand? Answering these and other questions will help you start thinking about your pantry space in a whole new light.

Know Your Needs

Shopping and cooking habits vary greatly among families. You might make one big grocery shopping trip every week, while your neighbor stops by to pick up a few things every day. If you cook most of your meals from scratch at home, your pantry needs will look a lot different than someone who mostly uses the kitchen for entertaining.

Before you try to design the specifics of your pantry, make a list of your most important needs. As you are brainstorming, no items are too big or too small. Maybe you would love to have custom short shelves for your canned goods, or perhaps you’d love built-in bins for your bulk grocery items.

Keep in mind that your pantry doesn’t have to only house food items. Many homeowners find that the pantry is an excellent place to store small appliances, kitchen gadgets and even seasonal decorations.
