One of the main things to keep in mind when exploring kitchen pantry ideas is space. Anyone who's experienced an overflowing, disorganized pantry knows that organization and efficiency are key here—otherwise you'll end up spending way more time than you'd like searching for that mysteriously vanished can of soup.

A somewhat unique way to "create space" in your pantry is to make sure your shelves aren't too deep. If they are, chances are you'll be reaching to the far recesses of the pantry, over food stores from ages gone by, and your kitchen storage will become more "pile" than "pantry." Shallow shelves allow for better organization, and for foods to be front-and-center and easily accessible.

Consider adding drawers with glass fronts for your pantry. This will allow you to know on sight what goes where, instead of embarking on a long search. Similarly, pull-out or lazy-Susan-style shelves can help with accessibility. Folding shelves are also a popular space-saving design.

If your space can accommodate it, consider a recessed pantry, built into one of the kitchen's walls. This low-profile option is out of the way when you need it to be, but easily accessible anytime. Another space-saving option is to create a pantry from unused cabinet space below the kitchen counter surface.
