5 Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Looking for ideas to create a small pantry organization system in your house? When you only have a limited amount of storage space, as in the case of your kitchen, you may need to get inventive. Here are some pantry makeover ideas from Guardian Self Storage. Learn how to make the most of what you’ve got!

Tips for Small Pantry Organization

Whether you want to completely remodel your pantry or make better use of the small pantry space you already have, there are plenty of ways you can organize this essential part of your kitchen. 

Consider Every Open Space as a Storage Alternative

If your kitchen is short on cabinet and pantry space, check out your home’s wide open areas. Could you add some open shelves above the sink? A kitchen island would give you even more storage possibilities. And don’t forget to look outside the kitchen for inspiration; a passage between the kitchen and living room might have enough space for a larger cabinet or storage system while still allowing easy access to your valuables.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry in Your Kitchen

In the space-saving design, a pull-out pantry is an excellent kitchen storage option. As you pull the door open, you may see each item, and you may store everything away at the conclusion of preparing your meal for a clutter-free kitchen.

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

An effective way to organize your food storage containers is by stacking the bottoms on top of one another while keeping the lids vertically. An important tip to remember is not to store the containers too high in cabinets as they could cause an avalanche; instead, keep them at eye level for easy access.

Group Your Pantry Items 

The first rule of organization is generally grouping like items together. Once you have figured out the layout of your pantry, consider these categories for easy-to-find storage: 

  • Cans
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Bread/Rolls
  • Breakfast Food
  • Snacks
  • Spices
  • Bottles/Beverages

Stack Whenever Possible

Odds are you have only a few shelves to work with in your initial pantry space. Think about which items, like cans and boxes, can be safely stacked on top of each other long-term. This will help to clear up additional space quickly.
