Many kitchen pantries become disorganized and out of control—but with the right cabinet types, your kitchen pantry can be efficient and even attractive.

9 Ideas to Keep Your New Kitchen Functional

Vertical Wall Storage

Use magnets, hooks and rods to create Organization Central. These kitchen items store neatly within a contained amount of space that might otherwise go unused. This idea is great for kitchens of any size and the customizable layout options are endless.

Live on the Big Island

We all know everyone gathers in the kitchen, so plan for it by designing a custom, U-shaped kitchen island using modular cabinetry and a durable countertop. It'll keep you in the middle of the action and give everyone else a place to do their thing.

Hidden, Not Forgotten

Clear off countertops and maximize corner-cabinet space by installing a two-tiered carousel. Smart storage solutions like this mean you can keep both often-used and rarely used items tucked away but within easy reach.

Clean-Lined Cooktop

When space is limited or you don't require gourmet appliances, consider a totally flat glass ceramic cooktop for your kitchen remodel. Its sleek profile fits in a traditional and contemporary kitchen so it works no matter your style.

Spiced-Up Organization

Simple change, major difference. Fill a designated drawer with spice inserts for an easy way to keep these cooking essentials handy. Gone are the wasteful days of three jars of oregano because you couldn't see your supply all at once.

Keep Continuity in Mind

A custom look doesn't have to come at a custom price. Designing your new kitchen with appliances covered in integrated doors that match your cabinetry is an easy and smart way to get a cohesive, complete kitchen. This dishwasher is just as functional, but blends in nicely when closed.

Illumination Innovations

Plug-in lighting strips with motion sensors go where no light has gone before. Forget fumbling in the dark for the flashlight or struggling to read labels if other lights aren't on. A good kitchen lighting plan includes simple extra touches like these.

Mise En Place

Do you dream of such organization? This French phrase means "everything in place" and making it a reality is easier than you think. Sensible storage planning puts everyday items neatly near where they're used most.

Energy-Efficient Cooktop

Talk about functional and sleek. An induction cooktop has no open flames and generates heat directly into compatible pots or pans, making it more efficient than gas.

If you're considering installing pantry cabinets, you'll first want to measure the space in your existing or planned pantry. If you've got a large space with room for plenty of cabinets, doors and pull-outs, you're in luck. But it's more likely that your pantry space is somewhat crowded, which means you'll need an efficient pantry cabinet plan. This might mean installing shallower shelves and drawers, or a "folding door" shelf system that allows for maximum efficiency in your kitchen storage space.

Another way to save space when it comes to pantry cabinet plans is to include sliding or stow-away doors on the cabinets. This way, you'll be able to navigate the recesses of the pantry without having to wriggle under and around open doors on the pantry cabinets.

Lastly, consider a Lazy Susan for your pantry cabinet plans. This traditional space-saver can be a great addition to any pantry cabinet system, allowing you to access food and supplies easily without having to waste time sifting through your stores.
