  • Determining the best Pantry System for your Kitchen Space


    The kitchen pantry is one of the most necessary aspects of the space. Depending on the layout, requirement, and design, there are various pantry systems that can work in a given kitchen space. Although there are many different, customizable options, all of the pantry systems come down to three different types: Shelves, pantry pull-out, and pull-out drawers and baskets. Each pantry system has their own advantages and disadvantages, but they all successfully store and keep the food items within the kitchen organized. Navigate through our guide of pantry systems to figure out which one works best for you.

     

    Shelves: Shelves are the most conventional form for organizing a pantry. They include a set of shelved cabinetry dedicated to pantry storage, or is a small room inside the kitchen with shelves along the wall. Shelving is one of the most common pantry systems for all types of kitchen designs. Compared to other options, pantry shelves are inexpensive and very simple to use, but they do have some un-reachable back corners and spaces which might reduce the storage space.

    Pantry Pull-out: Pantry pull-outs are a growing option for the contemporary kitchen. Increasing in popularity, pantry pull-outs are cabinets are blended into the kitchen space where one can simply pull out the storage to access their items. In a pantry pull-out, one can pull the shutter towards themselves to access the shelves, or one can open out the shelves to access items stored along the shutter or inside the cabinetry. These pantries are ideal for narrower spaces and are very space efficient. However, the pantry pull-outs vary in weight capacity, and have limited warranties. At ModSpace.in, we provide pantry pull-outs as a storage option by Hettich.

    Pull-Out Drawers and Baskets: Pull-out drawers and baskets combine the best of both worlds. They allow for that shelf-style storage, along with the easy pull-out to access all corners of the storage surface. Pull-out drawers allow for the user to place items at varied heights, but there is limited depth options. However, the baskets require minimal cleaning and are a more cost-effective way to create organization within the pantry.

  • Organization Tips for the Kitchen Pantry


    The pantry is the small room or large cabinet in a kitchen used as a storage space for non-refrigerated food items and possibly even cleaning items. Previous known as a larder or cellar, the pantry used to be a dark room with shelves to preserve the perishable food items. However, the purpose and importance of a pantry has evolved with time. Now, they are airy, included within the kitchen, and use modern accessories for efficient storage. A pantry with good organization is essential for the contemporary kitchen. Below, are a few pantry organization tips that can easily be implemented to make life much simpler. Implementing a few tricks can save some precious times on those busy mornings if items are in easy reach.

    Take Out Everything-First thing's first: for an organized pantry remove everything from the shelves. By removing everything from the pantry, a user is able to evaluate what they have and determine their storage requirements accordingly. Also, eliminating unnecessary items frees up some extra space. Toss out any expired food items and donate any food that is not needed. Then designate the each food item by type: breakfast items, salty snacks, sweet snacks, etc.

    Keep it Fresh-Many food items stay fresh in glass or clear containers. The clear, airtight containers keep both baking supplies and breakfast cereals fresher. They also make the food items much easier to see and save the space of bulky packaging.

    Equipment Storage-If equipment is stored in the pantry, then selected equipment should be stored near the necessary ingredients. For example, mixing bowls, baking pans, and cake moulds should be stored in the pantry near the baking supplies.

    Label Snacks-Any snack items should be stored in baskets for everybody, even kids, to access as necessary. All baskets should be labeled accordingly: sweet, salty, breakfast bars, etc. In fact, the snack section can easily be created as a kid zone, where they can simply pull-out the basket and grab a snack at any time. Snacks are best stored at midlevel to allow even the smaller members to reach for a quick access.

    Store Group Items Together-Items that are used together should be stored in a single container or in the same area. For example breakfast items, such as cereals and granola should be in a single basket so all items are accessible immediately. Even coffee/tea items can be stored in the same area to have easier and quicker access, saving both time and energy.
