If you have many small items lying around that need to be kept in sight, these canisters are just the thing for you! They’re both elegant and straightforward. Something interesting about them is that they're transparent, so you can see what's inside without opening them.

Chey and Brandon's take on an open pantry is quite the sight to see. With so many organized containers, you'll be able to find items without breaking a sweat. They mentioned that the best way to organize a pantry is by categorizing things rather than just having them all thrown into one place.

This two-month-long project focused on maximizing a corner shelf. They opted to work with warm wood tones while utilizing glass canisters for marshmallows, oats, and pretzels - often stored in a kitchen cabinet. Not to mention, the high-quality bamboo lids serve as better protection from dust compared to plastic covers.

They also designated wooden crates to hide dry vegetables like carrots, onions, and potatoes for proper yet discreet storage. What makes this charming pantry a favorite is that you could incorporate helpful organizers like a lazy susan for condiments and spaghetti noodles, as well as stylish rattan baskets at the bottom portion of the room. This is where other packed goods are stored if you wish to save the rest for a rainy day.

Small kitchens can do without a lot but if you're an amateur cook or foodie who loves experimenting with different cuisines, maximizing every space is essential. Sandie's built-in mini pantry made use of cabinet doors that have compartments on the side.

The shelves are evenly spaced out and deep enough to store bulky items like baskets with unused appliances. It’s also a great spot to place taller canisters and jars. She also used transparent and eco-friendly bamboo canisters to locate food items often used in the kitchen.

If you're not a big cook but have room for some pantry items that are easy to grab and go during a busy day, then Jules' pantry is the way to go!

She used trendy elements that made the area look more like an art installation than kitchen storage. By using wicker baskets and glass pull-out bins on her shelves, as well as patterned ceramic containers for storing chocolates and candies, she was able to add a visual boost in another common storage area.

Incorporating simple design elements can go a long way. Don't shy from brightly colored and patterned kitchen decor and organizers since it will help liven up the room and give it a contemporary look. It will also add depth and dimension to each shelf if you’re particular with that organization aspect.

When it comes to taking control of a messy kitchen, using large racks and mixing and matching cabinet organizers like baskets and pull-out bins can help tremendously. An open space will allow you to quickly see how clean your kitchen is without opening cabinet doors.

Open corner pantries are suitable for easy access in busy or large rooms such as professional kitchens or bakeries where the work happens quickly all at once! In addition, by partitioning things in your kitchen, you can make it look bigger than its actual size.

In terms of bins and drawers, stick to one color or tone that reflects a relaxing mood, as this will allow you to focus on the single shade and not be distracted from an overly busy room. Try choosing organizers and kitchen drawers that match the color of the cabinets to create harmony.

We recommend checking out Edmonton's work here for more tips on creating zones within big or small open kitchen spaces beyond just choosing colors!

A corner pantry is not just for appliance storage or to keep snacks away from the kids. It can also be used as a serene space in the morning when having coffee before everyone else in the house wakes up.

Jessica used baskets and wicker organizers to help organize all of her cooking ingredients while adding detail with her custom-made countertop that holds everything she needs for coffee, including enough room for a mug holder tree. Thus, each family member has their favorite mugs within reach!

Higher shelves are used to store rice and flour storage containers. Kitchen towels can be placed upright, which is excellent for those who buy in bulk! If you're a reader who collects cooking magazines or recipe books, installing magazine holders would make it easy to keep your references organized.

Walk-in pantries are also suitable for storing cutting boards and lid organizers to ensure your pots and pans don’t get lost in the mix when you’re prepping for a big cookout. Keep a wooden stool inside so that reaching the higher shelves is less of a stretch, or simply enjoy your morning coffee while browsing Pinterest recipes on a laptop perched atop the stool.

9.Clutter Healing's Lids with Labeling and Organizer

If you live in a tiny space with limited shelf storage, it is necessary to get creative with your cabinet organization. For instance, if you only had three shelves available for storing food items of different types (e.g., pasta sauce, pickles), pack them tight so that the top two shelves contain dry foods or spices, or add a spice rack if you prefer.

Just like Clutter Healing’s outstanding kitchen organization skills, you can use the bottom shelf for bottled condiments, which take up less room than jars and cans. Organize some bulky items like canned goods by using clear bins instead of stashing them deep inside. This is something to avoid since it takes up all the depth of the space, a common habit used in traditional kitchen cabinets. An organized kitchen will help make go-to items easy to grab, especially if you’re living with kids.

If you're a health-conscious person, labeling your glass canisters for easy identification is the best way to differentiate some rather specific items. Matcha powder from protein shake mixes? Label away! Last but not least, don't forget about lighting when storing all of these ingredients in the kitchen. A few well-placed spotlights are essential so that everything's right at hand and within reach.
