Not only do their shelves sport rows of matching baskets and air-tight containers, but they also have drawers and cabinets to store dishes, extra silverware or pans and baking items.
You can convert a cabinet by adding rolling shelves and wire racks to the interiors and doors for a functional cabinet that frees up counter space and keeps you organized. The rollout drawers pull out toward you to allow for plenty of deep storage space. This is extended on a much larger scale with built-in pantry shelving. These modular multiple shelving units combine door racks with shallow shelves that pull out and rotate to reveal more shelves behind them.
The design of your pantry should focus on visibility. Smaller items, like bottles and spice containers, could be on a rotating table or on a door rack. If you have the space, you could install a lazy susan or a riser shelf. You can also reinstall shelving for easy reach if they're too high, so feel free to do it yourself or hire a cabinet professional to help you.
Before you start deciding how to reorganize and design your new kitchen pantry, you should clean it out. If you have expired or barely used items, consider throwing them out or donating them to a soup kitchen. Then you can start organizing what you have left into groups, whether it's by frequency of use or spice groups. Then when you go to return them to the pantry, they'll be organized for easy access.
Whether you have a wide kitchen with a bit of space to spare or a compact kitchen with nowhere else for the pantry to go, using a tall cabinet at one end of the kitchen can be a beautiful solution. This sort of layout creates an appealing symmetry with a tall cabinet at the other end for a fridge or other appliances.
You should also organize your pantry with older items in front and newer items in the back. That way you won't have to worry about opening a new package and then have the added issue of spices expiring or drying out.
