5 Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Looking for ideas to create a small pantry organization system in your house? If you’re working with limited space, as is often the case in kitchens, get creative! Here are some pantry makeover ideas from Freedom Storage. You’ll learn how to utilize every inch and make it work for you!

Tips for Small Pantry Organization

Whether you want to completely remodel your pantry or make better use of the small pantry space you already have, there are plenty of ways you can organize this essential part of your kitchen. 

Consider Every Open Space as a Storage Alternative

If you have little cabinet and pantry space in your home, take a look around at some of the wider open areas. For example, do you have any blank wall space above your sink that could be used for installation of some open shelves? Alternatively, consider adding a kitchen island or extending one that is already there. Also, get inspiration from outside the kitchen; maybe there is an area between your kitchen and living room that could fit a larger cabinet or storage system while still allowing easy access to whatever items you choose to store there.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry

A pull-out pantry is an excellent kitchen storage solution in a tiny design. You may view each item as you open the door, and at the end of preparing your meal, you can neatly store everything away.

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

If you have a lot of Tupperware and Pyrex containers, you’ll need to find an organizing solution for your food storage containers. The bottoms should be stacked on top of one another while the lids are kept vertically. Make sure not to store your containers so high in cabinets that they could cause an overhead avalanche. To keep yourself safe, keep them at eye level.

Group Your Pantry Items 

The first rule of organization is generally grouping like items together. Once you have figured out the layout of your pantry, consider these categories for easy-to-find storage: 

  • Cans
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Bread/Rolls
  • Breakfast Food
  • Snacks
  • Spices
  • Bottles/Beverages

Stack Whenever Possible

If you’re working with limited space, get creative with your storage by stacking items on top of each other. This will help to clear up additional space quickly.
