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?

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.
