5 Kitchen Organization Tips for Easier Mealtimes

Does the clutter in your kitchen pantry frustrate you and slow down mealtime? 

It’s not easy to keep things in their place, especially when kids or spouses are always in and out. Before long, you may find yourself digging through pantry shelves for dinner ideas, and wasting several minutes every time you cook. 

Wouldn’t you like to make meal prep easier? 

Your pantry doesn’t have to be a cluttered nightmare! Our tips below can help you make your pantry an organized, accessible space. Best of all, once you organize your pantry, cooking for the whole family gets a little more enjoyable.

(1) Keep Your Must-Have Items Easily Accessible 

Do your kids go through granola bars or juice boxes in a flash? Do you regularly pick up cases of bottled water because they run out so quickly? We know how you feel, and how important it is to stock your family’s favorite foods. 

Keep the things you grab regularly within sight and close at hand. We suggest pull-out basket-rimmed shelves you can clearly see into. For example: 

(2) Label and Organize Cans and Spices 

If you don’t have an organized pantry and spice rack, you may find yourself spending precious minutes searching for the garlic salt or digging around for that can of green beans. While a minor inconvenience, it can add to both your cooking time and stress level. That’s why we recommend taking the time to label and organize your spices, and to store your canned goods so that they’re easily accessible. 

Here’s a way we helped one of our clients do just that. 

(3) Use Vertical as well as Horizontal Space 

Not all of your storage space needs to be horizontal. Spaces with vertical dividers are perfect for items you can store upright, like pans or cutting boards. Even cookbooks can be stored this way for easy access. Keeping these things stored neatly will not only save space but also time. When you have everything within reach, it’s easy to check a recipe or prepare a sheet pan dinner. 

(4) Use Hanging Rods for Dish Towels 

Why stuff dish towels in a drawer when you can hang them for better drying and more convenient storage. Adding a pull-out towel rod to a space in your pantry allows you to hang damp towels, aprons, or dinner napkins. This solution frees up drawer space and keeps dish towels dry and within reach.

 

(5) Use Labeled Canisters and Bins Instead of Bulky Packaging

You can make better use of the space in your pantry by using labeled canisters and bins, and ditching the cardboard or plastic packaging. Pro tip: be sure to keep any cooking instructions you might need later! 

We love the way this client used her label maker to make her personal pantry bins easy to identify and access on our adjustable shelves. Her sense of style is evident, too!

Pleasing Pantries!

Cooking up Something Super for your Pantry

Second to the Master closet, pantries are on the top of homeowners’ lists to organize with customized shelving and accessories; this is no surprise since the kitchen is often considered “the heart of the home.”

Where does everyone wind up at a party?– in the kitchen. According to Closets Magazine, when touring model homes, visitors spend more time in the kitchen than any other room in the home.

Saint Louis Closet Co. has noticed that with the influx of purchasing in bulk from large box stores, there is more and more focus on storage of foods, paper goods, and even excess dishes and appliances. Saint Louis Closet Co. custom closets can truly make a difference in your pantry.

Maximizing your kitchen pantry with corner shelving, platter dividers, and adjustable shelving for the varied size items stored in pantries can make overall kitchen storage simpler. Chrome pull-out wine racks store wine bottles at a 15-degree angle to ensure corks remain moist in storage. Pull-out chrome baskets in various sizes are perfect for paper goods, chips, and recycling. And don’t forget tray shelves and basket-rimmed shelves for canned goods and small boxes.

Once you realize there’s a place for everything in your Saint Louis Closet Co. pantry, then everything will be in its proper place in your kitchen!

Saint Louis Closet Co. offers free in-home design consultations for all areas of your home. Call (314) 781-9000 or visit us online at www.stlouisclosetco.com.
