3. Organise your pantry.
As one of the hardest working areas of your kitchen, the pantry – whether a butler’s pantry or a simple single unit – is often one of the first places to become disorganised and overwhelming. By tidying this essential part of your kitchen design, your space will instantly feel cleaner and more organised. Follow these 4 simple steps for a perfect pantry.
Step 1: Remove everything from your pantry. Throw out anything that is out of date and group the rest into “like” items. Store tinned items together, then flours & sugars, pasta & rices, oils & sauces, herbs & spices and so forth. This allows you to find a given food item within your pantry quickly and easily.
Step 2: Clean the pantry shelves and internals.
Step 3: If matching clear containers and pretty labels are your jam, now is the time to place all items in them, keeping all like items all together of course!
Step 4: Strategically place items back into the pantry. Keep everyday items at eye level (such as cereals, pasta, and other cooking staples) while placing treats and baking items up high on top shelves and small appliances at the lower levels.
