TOP 5 KITCHEN PANTRY STORAGE TIPS
KITCHEN STORAGE TIP 1 - UTILISE THE SPACE YOU HAVE

Whether you have space for a built-in food storage pantry, free-standing shelves, a kitchen dresser or even a simple utility drinks trolley; make use of the space you have. If you have a beautiful built-in pantry or larder there really is no need to spend a lot of money - especially if you're feeling thrifty, and you can adapt and repurpose the storage that you already have. So before you start; take a moment to evaluate your space and decide what storage works best for you and your budget.

KITCHEN STORAGE TIP 2 - KITCHEN STORAGE CONTAINERS

- Empty food from ugly packaging into containers.
Cereal, crisp packets, tea bags, biscuits... the list could go on. Anything that is not beautiful can be emptied into pretty jars and storage containers creating a well-ordered and beautiful kitchen storage display. This is what blogger and Instagrammer, Chelsea of The House That Black Built did in her recent kitchen renovation (check out her renovation on Instagram - it's unreal). Not only does it look beautiful, but it also makes it easier to find things when you are cooking dinner for your kids or friends and family in a rush.

- Glass Jars.
This leads us nicely onto beautiful glass jars. Glass jars and storage containers with your grains, cereals, nuts and seeds are useful ways to store your food staples whilst looking incredibly aesthetically pleasing too. A great idea for open shelving units, you could even attach chalkboard labels onto the glass or plastic containers for an organisation gold star! This is what @renovating_ethelwolf has done in her open-shelf kitchen organisation display to magical effect! We have a selection of recycled glass containers with fun and quirky sayings (pictured below) as well as our fabulous new ribbed glass Disco Biscuit Container.

Great for dry or packaged food items, like potatoes or packets of crisps. Invest in some beautiful baskets - with or without lids - that are useful and stylish too. We believe that everything in your home should be beautiful - even the useful stuff!.

KITCHEN STORAGE TIP 3 - HANG IT UP
Keep your kitchen worktops clutter-free by hanging your kitchen essentials up high. This is particularly useful for small kitchens with limited counter space. Or, for those who prefer a paired back and minimalist scheme in their homes. It's also incredibly practical for non-food items such as pots, pans and kitchen utensils.
KITCHEN STORAGE TIP 4 - UTILISE YOUR DRAWERS
Amber Recycled Glass Storage Jar - Pills £12.00 | Amber Recycled Glass Storage Jar - Loot £16.00 | Amber Recycled Glass Storage Jar - Stash £16.00
Put your cans and tins in drawers with the label facing up so that you can see them more easily. It's a great time-saver for when you'rere writing your shopping list.
KITCHEN STORAGE TIP 5 - LIGHTING
Clamp Table Lamp £49.00
Typically pantries and larders are dark rooms to keep your food cool and fresh. This can make it tricky at night when you are searching the cupboards for a midnight snack. So, don't forget to include great lighting! Hang ceiling lights or wall lights as directional lights or alternatively invest in a clip-on light or clamp light that can be clipped or clamped onto your shelves. We have a selection of new beautiful lighting that would be perfect for your pantry.
