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, particularly in your kitchen, you may need to get inventive to find options. The following are some ideas for transforming a tiny pantry from Amherst 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. 

Look Outside of Normal Storage Areas

Consider your home’s open areas if you have limited cabinet or pantry room. Do you have hanging space above your sink that may be used to showcase open shelves? Consider adding a kitchen island or extending an existing one. Look outside the kitchen for inspiration as well; a corridor between your kitchen and living room might house a larger cabinet or storage system while still enabling easy access to your belongings.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry in Your Kitchen

A pull-out pantry is a useful kitchen storage solution in the space-saving design. You can see each item as you open the door, and you may store everything out of sight at the end 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 food storage containers, you’ll need to come up with some way to store them. The bottoms should be stacked on top of one another while the lids are kept vertically. Make sure your containers aren’t stored too 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 When You Can 

You’ll be able to fit a lot more on the shelves of your pantry once you’ve got one. Consider which goods, such as cans and boxes, can be safely stacked on top of each other over time. This will assist you in quickly freeing up additional space.
