The pantry is one of the many rooms in your house that needs a little extra love and attention. Your pantry shouldn’t be a mishmash of stuff. Instead, transform your pantry into something awe-worthy. You don’t have to start from scratch or even remodel your pantry to make it dreamy. With just a few simple changes, you can get a few steps closer to having the pantry you’ve always wanted. Work with what you have and create a fashionable and functional pantry space.
Think Outside of the Box or Bag
Transfer what you use the most into stylish containers. Take your flour, sugar, pasta noodles, and anything else you use regularly, and put them inside labeled glass containers for easy access. It will instantly add a bit of style to your pantry, and it will be easier to see when you’re running out of something before it’s completely gone.
Sometimes all your pantry needs is a fresh coat of paint. The right paint color can really determine the look and feel of the space. Have it blend in with the rest of your home or make it stand out with bright colors or a unique pattern.
Change the Door
One of the easiest ways to change the vibe of your pantry is to simply change the door. Go for a stylish update or even find something out of the ordinary to cover the pantry entrance. If you don’t feel up to changing the door, even something as small as changing the doorknob can make a big impact.
Update the Lighting
A pantry shouldn’t be dark and gloomy. If you have outdated or dim lighting, it’s time to make a change. Update the pantry’s lighting and make an instant improvement. You should be able to see what’s in there without taking it out of the pantry or bringing your face close to it. Plus, swapping the lighting is an easy way to modernize any space, including the pantry.
You can’t put everything in glass jars, as much as you would love to. With everything else, group them together and put them in stylish bins. It will help you stay organized, too. You’ll no longer have to dig through your pantry to find what you’re looking for. For high shelves, make sure to use labels on the bins so you don’t have to pull it down to find out what’s inside. It also makes it easier and safer for kids to get their favorite snacks.
