Pantry organisation envy is a wormhole we all get sucked into from time-to-time (and with good reason!).
Growing up, my mum’s walk-in pantry was very organised. Like, to the point where we would write on a notepad what we’d taken out so that she would know what she needed to buy to replenish it.
It may seem like a crazy notion, but considering what happened to food supplies around the world in the beginning of the pandemic, not to mention the worry about hitting the shops too often, her pantry was, in fact, genius.
We all live in different homes. Perhaps you have a lavish walk-in pantry, a large cupboard full of shelving, or maybe you live in an apartment with minimal space that you really need to keep organised. No matter your circumstance, we have found something for everyone.
Behold, the top 10 pantry organisation and storage inspirations to get your organising game on!
1. Labels, Labels, Labels!
What better way to keep things organised than purchasing some containers and labeling them accordingly?!
2. Glass – timeless and elegant
This is quite extravagant, but if you do have a walk in, wicker baskets, glass jars and glass containers for nuts, pastas and snacks are a no-fail approach.
And, it happens to look beautiful.
You can use these same ideas in a small cupboard.
3. Organisation and filing systems are key
Need I say more?
Not only is this a sleek pantry but the organisation and planning area are to die for!
4. Drawer galore
What a super simple way to keep veggies and appliances (or anything else, really) super organised.
This sort of storage can be kept in the pantry or even out in the kitchen area.
5. Baskets – it’s never too many!
Once again, it can be as simple as using baskets and labels to keep everything in it’s place.
This idea can be used for any size pantry you may have.
Plus everyone in the family can learn where everything goes.
6. Pantry meets library
Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want their pantry to look like a library. It’s adorable!
Also, I’m 100% sure we all have cakes, muffins and freshly baked bread to display. Right?
7. Did I mention: drawers?!
If you’re able to install drawers into your cupboard, it makes things easily accessible from all angles.
In deep cupboards, things can get lost in the back.
You often end up buying things you didn’t need purely because they can’t be seen.
8. Cramming more in
For a small space, this would work perfectly.
Imagine baking a cake and having such easy access to everything you’ll need!
Also, loving the recipes folder!
9. Sections for all
This is a pantry a lot of us can probably relate to in terms of size.
Keeping everything in sections, and in containers, labeled or not, sets a clear flow for the space.
The tiered stand enables you to see what you have without it getting lost in the back.
10. Themed, minimalist and simply stunning
Loving this simple timber-inspired area that uses all the space to their advantage.
Top and bottom shelves are organised beautifully, and labeled of course.
