5 Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Are you searching 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 Brooks Mini 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

Take a look at your home’s wide open areas if you have little cabinet and pantry area. Do you have wall space above your sink that may be utilized to store open shelves? Consider adding a kitchen island or extending one that is already in place. Look outside the kitchen for inspiration as well; a passage between your kitchen and living room might accommodate 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 

If you have a lot of Tupperware and Pyrex containers, you’ll need to find an organizing solution for your food storage containers. The bottoms should be stacked on top of one another while the lids are kept vertically. Make sure not to store your containers so high in cabinets that they could cause an overhead avalanche. To keep yourself safe, keep them at eye level.

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.
