Getting your home organized after moving into a beautiful home built by Home Builders in Tampa is a top priority. Starting in the kitchen is a perfect beginning, especially the pantry area as this is where you’ll be storing most of the needed food items for your family. Here are some great tips for organizing your pantry:
Take everything out of your pantry and start fresh. Make sure it’s thoroughly cleaned and add a coat of paint is a great idea. Get rid of old and outdated food and any containers that you don’t plan on using. You might even want to add a fun wall paper, shelf liners, or even choose a fun color to paint it. Consider painting the pantry door, adding a sign, or a wreath to make it a beautiful accent to your kitchen.
Make A Plan
Before putting anything back into the pantry make a plan on how you want it to look. Browse through Pinterest and look for some ideas. The most important thing is to make it functional. Don’t put things that you use daily on the top shelf. Also, do not put breakables up too high, for safety reasons. Create a rough draft on a piece of paper to get an idea of what you want it to look like before you start to put the pantry back together. It’s ok to go with the flow and not be stuck on a certain layout, but a layout does help create a workable and beautiful space.
Having the right containers for your pantry will make all the difference for making and keeping it organized. Make sure to measure the shelves before you buy the containers so that you know that they will fit correctly. You will want a large selection of containers for your pantry. Look for ones that will fit pantry staples such as flour, sugar, and pasta. Also find ones that will work for snacks and cereal.
Keeping things organized over time will require containers to be labeled. Labels will really help your family contribute to keep your pantry clean. Your family will also love knowing what snacks are available for lunch or after school.
