A pantry is the ideal nook for storing extra food and other items ordinarily crammed into the kitchen. It’s also a nice design feature, as it harkens back to the days of country kitchens with spacious pantries.
You might be thinking, “That’s nice, but our home doesn’t have a pantry.”
That’s okay. These days, there are many ways to create a pantry in your home – even if it doesn’t have one! Here are just a few suggestions:
- Add shelves to the laundry room. If you have the space, this is the ideal place to create a mini-pantry.
- Purchase a portable pantry. There are many available on the market. Some are even disguised as cabinets you’d expect to see in living and dining rooms.
- Purchase a movable pantry. These units are on wheels and can slide in and out of the kitchen with ease. Some are short enough to slide conveniently under a kitchen table.
- Make use of an unused closet. These are rare in most homes, but if you have a closet that isn’t being used, it can easily be converted into a pantry.
As you can see, there are plenty of options available. You don’t necessarily need to build an extra room!
Finding storage space in the home is becoming increasingly challenging.
These days, we all just seem to have more stuff!
Fortunately, you don't necessarily need to rent a storage locker or add a
new room to your home to fit everything. There are many innovative ways to
increase the capacity of the storage space you're already using.
For example, there are storage bins you can buy that are designed to fit
neatly under a bed. Some have wheels, making the bins easy to pull out
You've probably seen closet organizers at your local home improvement
centre. These can easily double the storage capacity of a closet, while
making the space look neater and more organized.
Finally, there are storage units available that are camouflaged as something
else, such as an ottoman.
