A pantry is incredibly handy — like a little closet for your food. Who wouldn’t love extra space for stocking up on groceries and storing ancillary cookware?
But a pantry is more than a tiny room full of shelves. Or at least it should be! Precision Closets & Garage can show you how we can customize your pantry to ensure that you have ample space for all the items you need to keep on hand.
When people think of food storage, they often think of canned goods. Canned goods can last many years, so they’re great to stock up on and store in case of emergency. But you will want to store more than canned goods in your pantry.
Especially if you have a family, you know grocery shopping is a major chore, and you likely wish you could do less of it. When you make those trips out to Costco and you fill up the van with crates of juice boxes, paper towels and single-serving bags of chips, you’ll need a place to put it all when you get home.
What we know here at Precision Closets, however, is that every family is different. One family may go through hundreds of bottles of water per month while another likes to keeps dozens of varieties of pasta or cereal on hand.
The point is not so much your food choices, but the shape and size of your food choices. A pantry with adjustable shelves will allow you to get the most out of the space that you have.
Beyond that, our experts can show you lots of storage solutions tailored to the items you buy most frequently. Pull-out wire baskets can hold lunch box snacks, granola bars or even fruits like apples and bananas. Choose shelves that slide out for easier access to items at the back. Store opened bags and boxes in drawers to preserve freshness.
Many homeowners with pantries also like to invest in plastic, ceramic or stainless steel storage containers for their food. This makes for an inspiring-looking pantry, and it helps keep staple foods like flour and sugar fresher for longer.
But pantries aren’t just for storing food. They’re great for storing items you don’t use every day, such as bakeware, large steaming pots, blenders, cookbooks and things you may have received as gifts that you don’t use but feel bad giving away.
We can also add a wine rack to your pantry, as well as a second rack to store glassware.
Many of our clients also want to store cleaning items in their pantry. We help you create a separate, walled-off area for cleaning supplies so that you can keep them safely away from your food, but still have them nearby to quickly and easily deal with spills and messes in the kitchen.
