Kitchen Design Ideas

Cabinet manufacturers have responded to consumer demand for pantry storage in small spaces and cheap kitchens. In addition, closet manufacturers have identified the market as a cross-product user of their clever storage innovations. Finally, the small kitchen owner is getting the attention they deserve. Purchased organizers are not the only way to maximize your pantry cabinet space.

Here are some great ideas for creating more pantry storage in small cheap kitchens:

1. Re-organize to make a smarter pantry. Taller items on pantry shelves in back, shorter in front. Use baskets for bulky items and containers to corral small, misc. items.

2. Adjust height of shelves to match the size of the pantry item and maximize the efficiency of your pantry storage space.

3. Consider moving food items to drawers. More items can be stored in a drawer; label tops for quick identification.

4. Install roll-out pantry drawers for easier access. Because you can see more, you can store more.

5. Reclaim a closet.

6. Reclaim storage between studs of wall.

7. Take out the kitchen soffits to move infrequently used items above kitchen cabinets; make new pantry cabinet space below.

8. Delegate pantry food storage outside of the kitchen: under the living room couch or out in the garage.

9. Tuck pantry food items inside decorative furnishings, like a crock.

10. Think on a smaller scale: consider a mini-version of a walk-in pantry.

11. Take 12″ out of hallway width for pantry shelves.

12. Recycle wooden crates from wine, mount to walls as a shelf (can get free from wine stores or superstores).

13. Make a skinny box on wheels next to empty space next to your refrigerator (same height) that can wheel out.

14. Use over-the-door racks for extra storage on closet doors. For very narrow doors, take a hanging shoe pouch for over-doors and cut to fit.

15. Purchase an antique or used furniture cabinet at a garage sale or flea market and refit the furniture for pantry use.

16. Hanging up items is an alternative to using cabinet space.

17. Install pantry shelving in kitchen where spices and staples can be stored out in the open.

18. Hang pots up on a pot rack to free space up inside cabinets for pantry goods or keep inside oven when not in use.

19. Put utensils in utensil caddies on the countertop to free up additional pantry space inside cabinets – flatware can be stored also in a decorative container on the table.

20. Take a lesson from closet clothing storage experts and copy their unique storage ideas or even utilize their products for your food storage needs.
