Food Storage Ideas: No Pantry? No Problem!

Food Storage Ideas

The kitchen is truly the heart of the home. It is a place for families and friends to gather, share delicious food, and create memories—but it is also one of the hardest spaces to keep organized. At Dallas Custom Closets, our goal is to create an efficient design to organize your kitchen based on your specific storage needs. Whether you are looking to better organize an existing space or having trouble turning dead space into useful storage, our team will create a custom design for your kitchen. When it comes to innovative food storage ideas, no pantry is no problem for our team! We are experienced in utilizing the space you have to offer food storage solutions for even the smallest of spaces.

When organizing a kitchen, our team’s goal is to create functional solutions centered on your specific needs. Food storage has its own specific challenges because it is constantly fluctuating after every meal and every trip to the grocery store. Our team consults with each client to better understand your specific organizational requirements. We will help you think about what you use in the kitchen, where you use it, and how often you use it.

In order to get the most out of the space you have available, it is important to create an easy flow to provide quick, accessible storage for all your kitchen needs. Instead of spending time digging through a cluttered cabinet for the ingredient you’re looking for, our organizing solutions will have the items you need within easy reach.

Kitchen Needs

If you already have a pantry, figuring out how to create an optimal storage scheme is essential to getting the most out of your pantry. Slide-out wire racks and wire baskets are great options to stack or group foods together, making it easier to access the ingredients you need while you’re preparing a meal. Vertical dividers can add structure and top-to-bottom storage to maximize organization in a pantry. Use hooks or hanging baskets on pantry doors to store items you can hang to free-up pantry space for bigger items. Installing drawers is also an excellent way to maximize organization in a pantry.

If you don’t have a pantry, it is important to identify and utilize all the empty space available in your kitchen. Determine where the dead space is in your kitchen and what organizational potential that space has. Our creative storage solutions can turn even the smallest kitchen into a functional space with many options to keep your supplies stocked.

Open Shelving

Open shelving is an excellent way to add storage space that also functions as décor. Spices and dry goods that are creatively arranged on open shelving add a utilitarian aesthetic while also utilizing otherwise empty wall space for storage purposes. Unused counter space is also a great place to store food in stacking bins, wire baskets, or decorative containers. The gap between your fridge and the wall is the perfect spot for a narrow slide-out rack to store spices and cans. We even offer different corner storage solutions to turn ordinarily difficult-to-fill empty spaces into creative storage spots.

Not all pantries are the same—and not all kitchens have pantries. Our team at Dallas Custom Closets is experienced in determining what your unique problem areas are and how to improve upon your existing spaces. We offer completely custom storage designs so you can get the most out of your kitchen.
