Your kitchen is likely one of the busiest rooms in your home. Unfortunately, kitchen organization is often overlooked or pushed to the side, which can leave you with a big mess when it comes time to prepare a meal. When you have a well-organized kitchen and pantry, the time you spend there can actually become rather enjoyable.

Keep Snacks Close By
If you have kids, you probably experience a mini-tornado in the kitchen whenever they come through for snacks. One way to keep the snacking well organized is to do some color-coding. Use wire baskets or plastic bins of a certain color to stash snacks. If the kids know their snacks are always in the blue containers, they’re much less likely to make a mess while searching for them.
Look for Space You’re Not Using
There’s probably a fair amount of unused space in your kitchen, but you may not have considered it for storage because it’s in an unusual area. Do you have blank space above the refrigerator, sink, or elsewhere? That space is potentially something that our experts can use to create new storage for you. There may be a great opportunity for brand new shelving and storage solution that you would never have otherwise considered–and you don’t need any major home renovations to get it!

Like bedroom closets, we often find that our kitchen pantries don’t have enough space for all of the items we need to store in them. This can be a frustrating problem to have, especially if you have a large household with a lot of mouths to feed. At More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, we provide custom storage solutions that make the most of the space you have. We work with you to turn your cluttered and disorganized pantry into a highly functioning kitchen storage area. Read on to learn about some of the best ways to organize your pantry.
There are many options for pantry storage systems. Between rotating and extending shelves, dividers, pullout baskets, and wine and spice racks, you can utilize different components to create a system to perfectly suit your storage needs. Are you tired of digging to the back of the dark and crowded cupboard to find the spices you need for dinner? Spice racks make it easy to quickly find what you need when you need it. Do you find old and stale chips buried under cracker boxes that you forgot you had? Shelves and dividers can help eliminate that problem. By building a custom storage solution for your pantry using the different storage elements, you’ll never discover old and moldy fruit in the forgotten pantry corner again.
Storing Items In Groups
After you’ve designed and installed your custom pantry storage setup, you can start arranging your food items. Grouping like items together is a good way to maintain organization. Store canned goods together on shelves in an area you designate for non-perishable food. Utilize similar containers for smaller snacks and treats that you can store side by side. This uniformity will make your pantry look clean and tidy while allowing for easy access of your food. Baskets work well for storing fruits and vegetables, as well as certain products that should be kept separate from food, such as cleaning supplies. Arranging your food in similar groups will help you keep track of the various goods and know exactly where to look when you need something.
The storage options at More Space Place are not only incredibly functional, but look great, too. You can choose from a variety of color, material, and style options to match your kitchen’s look.
