Food occupies not so little space in the interior and should be easily accessible. We share convenient and beautiful ways to organize storage.
Turn a narrow corner into a place to store food - a real storage room! The most convenient option for its arrangement will be open shelves and racks along three walls that will be occupied by products. Place heavy objects on the lower shelves or on the floor, and use smaller and lighter products on the upper shelves. In addition, the pantry can be placed in unusual places, making them functional, for example, in the space under the stairs.
To place small jars or grocery bags, you can use the inner surface of the doors, which will provide quick access and convenient storage. Small metal or plastic shelves, as well as hanging organizers for shoes in the form of pockets, can serve as a place to place products.
Niches and walls
Unintended narrow niches, for example, near the refrigerator or useless sections of walls on which a cabinet cannot be placed, can serve as additional storage space for products. Equip a refrigerator with a narrow sliding shelving for products, and walls with miniature shelves for small jars to make the kitchen more functional.
If you decide to keep products in plain sight, on the open shelves, then storage should be concise and aesthetic. Buy identical containers with lids for bulk products and spices — cans or containers so that the shelves look neat and not cluttered. To make the open shelves more aesthetic, you can resort to another method - to make the back walls of the shelves accent with the help of wallpaper with an interesting print, for example, marbled.
Full wall storage
If the kitchen space allows, then one of the walls should be used for storing food. It can be occupied both with tall cabinets with deaf facades, and with an open shelving with convenient shelves - everything depends on the priorities in the design of the kitchen. If fast access to products is more important, then choose open shelves. If the kitchen is combined with the living room or dining room and you want to hide storage, then the blind facades win.
Spinning stand (rotating tray)
To make the corners of the open shelves and corner compartments more convenient for storage, you can use a rotating stand (rotating tray). With its help, the area of the corners is used more efficiently, and all items can be easily reached.
As you know, drawers are much more convenient for storing small items and products than shelves, so in the volume of one large shelf you can organize several drawers with the help of additional fittings.
You can easily build a pantry in a kitchen niche, but here's how to aesthetically hide its contents? This will help barn door - a special model of the door, which slides on the metal rail. It looks very impressive and brings rustic charm to the interior. To open it does not require as much space in the kitchen as required for swing doors, which is great for cramped spaces.
Furniture is not from the kitchen
For storage of food, you can easily use furniture that is not designed for this purpose, for example, a vintage wardrobe or an old wall from the living room. Just properly organize storage on the shelves. If the compartments are too large to store food, divide them into several levels using new shelves or use organizers and shelves.
For storage to be neat and organized, it is necessary to divide the products into categories. Regardless of whether you store food in a large pantry or on a pair of shelves in the kitchen, you will need several plastic or wicker baskets into which you can put homogeneous products (for example, baking additives, snacks, bars, pasta, and so on).
