Whether it’s a small cooking corner or an envy-worthy space equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, storage is still one of the most important considerations a homeowner must take note of when completing the kitchen. If you’ve always wanted to have a pretty pantry where you can keep all the ingredients you need to be able to prep delicious meals, you can make it happen even with a small budget. The secret? A few materials, some creativity, and making use of awkward nooks within your home. Get started with these ideas:

Do you have an unused corner near the kitchen or dining area? A tall shelf can serve as a pantry. Choose a slim shelf that can hold jars of ingredients and even mini baskets where you can keep a few condiments. Remember to keep your shelf neat and organized. You can also add accessories and pots of herbs to spruce it up. Look for shelves when you visit SM Home or Mandaue Foam Furniture Store.



Transform your existing drawers and cabinets into an instant pantry. Work with your trusted carpenter and see if he can add extra compartments and shelves where you can organize your groceries and dry goods. Remember to put the ones near the expiry date and ones you use often in front so you can get them easily. The space on top of your fridge can also be useful. Keep it clean always and place a few baskets where you can keep onions and garlic. Click here to watch a quick video tutorial.

A customized storage rack that can be placed between a wall and your refrigerator is also another genius idea you can work on with the help of a carpenter. Measure the size of the available space and use it as reference when building your pull-out shelf. Use it to organize bottles, canned goods, and other containers.

No space to spare? Make use of the walls or the inside of your cabinet doors. Install magnetic strips or sheets so you can hang bottles of spices and other small kitchen utensils. Click here for more details.

Don’t have an extra budget to spare? No need to worry! A wire rack you can purchase from the nearest home depot can help solve your pantry woes. Set it up in your kitchen and invest in sturdy bins and boxes. Label these accordingly and use it to organize your supplies. Click here for a quick overview.
