Kailua Home Remodeling

Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, and it’s easy for it to become a clutter of half-empty containers, spare plastic bags, and other unnecessary items. 

A dedicated pantry can help you organize your kitchen. It can serve as a dedicated location not only for your canned goods, baking ingredients, and other groceries with a long shelf life, it can also be a space for you to store specialized kitchen appliances. 

However, your pantry can just as easily become chaotic as the rest of your kitchen. If you’re considering installing a pantry during your HI home remodeling, but are worried that it will end up being a mess that will stress you out, here are a few easy tips that can help you keep your pantry organized and clutter-free!

  1. Shelving, Shelving, Everywhere!

Take advantage of vertical wall space – install shelving on your walls, and use them to help organize your pantry items. 

You can use your shelving units to help arrange your pantry according to importance. For example, seasonal items like Christmas cookie cutters and Thanksgiving pie dishes can be placed on the top shelves. On the bottom and shelves, essentials like snacks and frequently used baking ingredients.

  • Chalkboard Pantry Doors

Make your pantry more functional by turning the doors into chalkboards. You can do this by having the doors coated with chalkboard paint. 

This will allow you to directly use the doors to write down grocery lists and important reminders. You can keep your pantry and kitchen organized by making a note of the last time you cleaned out the pantry, a list of chores that need to be performed, and your pantry organizational system in a way that everyone can be aware of. 

By directly using your pantry doors, not only do you add a touch of fun to your kitchen, you are also able to set out important reminders in a way that ensures that they will always be front and center in you and your family’s minds.

  • Label – Everything!

Instead of using cardboard boxes and the packaging that your groceries come in, transfer everything to clear jars and bottles if possible. Not only will it make it easier to find what you’re looking for, you can also easily label them for easy access. 

You can add a touch of fun and whimsy when keeping track of what’s what by using easily available decorative decals and stickers to mark out each jar. It make it easy for you to grab what you need. The decals combined with the see-through containers will also serve as an excellent organizational system, reminding you when you’re running low on ingredients, and serving as a structured way to put your groceries away. 

For greater efficiency, you can use a dry-erase marker to make a note of expiry dates on each container. This can then be easily changed every time you restock the item.
