Not everyone has the luxury of a spacious walk-in pantry. And if you aren’t one of those folks with a walk-in, get comfortable with the fact you’re not alone. Most homes I work in have cabinet-style pantries…and they are awesome, I might add! Honestly, if I had a choice, I’d go with cabinet-style every time because when you have a smaller space to work with, you’re less likely to accumulate too much. You’re also more likely to focus on getting them super organized and efficient.
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with a sweet mom that has cabinet pantries in various spots around her kitchen. She has a pull-out pantry as well as 2 cabinet pantries. All 3 are now beautifully (and simply) organized!
With very few products, this cabinet is set up for success and ease of finding it all…
She has a special love for lentils and spices so we re-organized that cabinet as well. This one takes my breath away every time I see it. No need for labeling everything, just a few have labels which are hidden on the back of the jars (her choice)..
Pull-out pantries are quickly becoming a regular sight in the newly renovated homes I work in. These are such a fabulous idea, but they do come with weight restrictions. We were careful to add just a few items here, balanced out evenly, which includes her smaller spices, baking items and drink mixes.
She already had this clear lazy susan on hand so we used it to contain her small spice jars…
TIP: If you love those artisan oak jars, keep in mind they may arrive with a slight odor. She and I agreed it was a vinegar smell…and likely due to the lids being of a natural element. I was hesitant to wash the lids so instead aired them out on my garage work table for about a week. After a week only a couple still had the odor remaining, otherwise it was not detectable.
I’ve linked to the products used in these cabinet-style pantries right here in the post, but if you want to browse my entire collection of tried & true products, you can find them all here conveniently on my shop page. Truly, I only share the products that work – not only in my home, but the home of clients that are putting them to the test as well!
Happy pantry organizing!
