If you live in Kansas City a custom pantry can be tailored to suit your individual needs, which will indeed stimulate those taste buds with a flood of creative cooking ideas. Check out some of these design ideas when creating your custom pantry design.


They Say, Spice Is the Variety Of Life

Spices are everything in cooking. With the right combination of spices, you can turn any recipe into an exotic meal ... Give your spices a  well-deserved home in the pantry. If the spice shelves are too deep or difficult to see, you start to lose track of what you have and you become less inspired to use or experiment with them. And who wants spice jars all over the bench creating unnecessary clutter?  

Solution: Spice shelves on the doors are very easy to see and easy to store. It makes them readily accessible for any occasion whether it’s just for some simple seasoning or an exotic banquet of delectable flavours that inspire your fancy. There are many ways to live a life uncluttered and full of flavour with a custom pantry to maximize your spice jar storage. 

Accessibility And Visibility

Quite often, we only notice our pantries when they appear a bit bare. If we open the cupboard or drawers and see a full stock, we take what we need and pay no mind. When it’s a little thin, we restock. Here’s a question for you? When was the last time you pulled everything out to see what you’ve got?

If you’re like a large majority of people, it’s been a while, perhaps years. Perhaps it’s even become a bit like a food museum. The tendency is to use and restock the first two rows of cans and jars in your pantry while the third row and beyond tends to sit forever.  

Solution: Consider a custom pantry with sliding shelves and/or baskets. They are so easy to use that you’ll be able to bring even the deepest parts of your pantry directly within reach at just a touch of a finger!

Unusually Shaped Items

Sometimes often overlooked is allowing adequate space for those items that are odd sizes or too tall like juice or drink bottles, tall cereal boxes, bags of potatoes etc. Something to keep in mind when designing your custom pantry is making room for these things as well so they are accessible and fit in your kitchen with ease.  

Solution: One of the best ways to begin to work out your individual needs for a custom pantry is to have a good look through your current pantry and cabinets. Create a list of the different categories and items you regularly keep or have had trouble previously fitting in, not forgetting all those odd sized items. This way you can make sure everything gets included in your new custom pantry design.
