The pantry is the bloodline of the kitchen. Without all its utensils and staples, you’d have a hard time making dinner every day. While considering the number of times you use your pantry while cooking, entertaining or even putting groceries away, it’s easy to recognize that this space can have a significant effect on your home.

Proper shelving and coordination can help you better utilize the space in your home. Incidentally, using the right storage techniques can help you save space and give your pantry asymmetrical and minimalist feel. Whether you have a small designated shelf or a large walk-in pantry, elegant pantry organization will prove to be a game-changer in the dynamic of your kitchen.



1. Glass storage jars

A chicer, more contemporary option to plastic containers and pre-packaged food boxes is glass jars. Not only do glass containers hold and transfer fewer toxins to your food than plastic, but they also help your food taste fresher longer. Not to mention, being able to see right into each container helps you find what you’re looking for faster and monitor levels. To add an extra touch of elegance and differentiation, use different shapes of jars for your pasta, dry baking ingredients, and snacks.

2. Drawer organizers

A strong addition to a butler pantry or any kitchen, the right drawer organizer helps you optimize whatever space you have. Each designated compartment allows everything to have its own place, thus eliminating Jumbled Drawer Syndrome and freeing up counter space. The stress of scrambling for a wine opener or a whisk will be long gone. Designate each area for extra utensils, sippy-cup lids, napkin rings and whatever else needs its own space in your butler pantry. While shopping for containers, keep in mind the size of your drawers as well as what you might be putting in each compartment.

3. Multi-level storage racks

Multi-level racks offer a full view of your spices, medications or even canned goods for easy access. They are great for eliminating clutter and opening up more space on your pantry shelves. When it comes to multi-level storage, don’t be afraid to use your pantry walls and the back of your pantry’s door to free up further shelf space.
