1. Clear containers with labels
2. Install a spice rack on the back of the door
A spice rack is a must. But spices can be stored on the back of the door instead of taking up valuable shelf space. Door racks can be easily installed and are perfect for storing small items like spices.
3. Pullout storage shelves
If you are willing to completely overhaul your pantry, a popular storage hack is to do away with your shelves and install sliding stainless steel shelves instead. They allow you to pull out the contents and access items stored at the back without hassle.
4. Hang hooks
Like the storage rack on the back of the door for spices, hooks can be hung on the opposite door to store items like oven mitts, measuring cups and spoons. You can also hand up a chalkboard to write a shopping list.
5. Don't forget about lighting
Good lighting is essential to see what you have in your pantry. Consider installing battery-powered LED lights like these. Or you could install a motion-sensor light that automatically turns on when you open the pantry door.
6. Under-shelf storage baskets
Under-shelf storage baskets can be easily attached underneath a shelf or cabinet to create additional storage space. The best part is there’s no need for tools or drilling into your shelves. They attach to the bottom of a shelf or cabinet using hooks or clips, allowing the basket to hang in place.
7. Install adjustable and stackable storage
Consider installing adjustable shelves in your pantry to customise the space according to your needs. This way, you can accommodate items of different heights and maximise the available space. Tiered shelves also mean you can see exactly what’s at the back of your pantry. Large storage baskets are also great for the bottom of the pantry for larger items like drink bottles and things that are hard to store.
