If you'll be given a chance to design the pantry of your dreams, what would it look like? Are you going to maximize natural light? Will you invest in customized cabinets and tall shelves? While you're still working on saving up to make this dream come true, you can go for simpler alternatives that are just as functional and stunning, too. Achieve your #pantrygoals with these ideas:

Pantries don't always have to be floor-to-ceiling shelving or giant rooms—in fact, a portion of your cupboard is enough as long as you keep it organized and streamlined. Install hanging shelves behind the doors and pull-out shelves inside one of the cabinets and you're good to go. 

For easy access to ingredients and dry goods used on the daily, consider transferring them into clear containers. You can even add a charming personal touch by labeling each one by hand. 

RL Tip: This organization system makes shopping easier, too! Since the bins are transparent, you can easily see which items you're already out of. 

If you're not into the idea of handwriting each label, you can always turn to printed stickers. Don't forget to pick out designs that match the rest of your pantry decor, too! 

Do you still have that spare mesh rack in your garage? With a little cleaning and polishing, you can use that as an extra shelf for your pantry. It's an affordable and easy-to-maintain unit that can also add a rustic-industrial element to your space. 

If you're the type of person who likes to indulge in a glass of red before bed, it might be a good idea to leave space for your wine collection in your pantry. Make sure to invest in wine racks and coolers to keep your bottles in mint condition.
