With summer just a few weeks ahead of us, it’s time to prepare our homes. Besides clearing out our warmer wardrobes, one can also prep the pantry to get it ready for the upcoming barbecue season. Ready to get started? Consider adding custom cabinetry with the following accessories to create the perfect party pantry.

1) OPEN ADJUSTABLE SHELVES:  Reserve a section of your pantry for open shelves to store extra bottles of relishes, mustards and ketchup. Since items come in all shapes and sizes, open adjustable shelving will give you the flexibility you need to store items in a neat and organized way. You can even move the shelves around to temporarily accommodate bulk containers as you stock up for a big night.


2) PULL OUT CABINET AND ORGANIZER: Instead of ordinary cabinet doors, consider adding a pull-out cabinet and organizer. This clean organizational system allows you to see the full length of your storage space, which means no more reaching all the way to the back of the shelf or digging through items blocked by cans or boxes in the front. You’ll love the easy access to herbs, spices, canned goods and other supplies. 



3) CORNER CAROUSEL: Stock your corner carousel with bottles and other round containers like juices and sodas. To improve stability, place the tallest and skinniest bottles in the center and surround them with shorter containers. 



4) WICKER BASKETS: Once you’ve designed your custom pantry cabinets and interiors, it’s time to add storage baskets to keep small items neatly corralled. Divided snacks into categories that make sense, such as “salty” and “sweet” or “kids and “adults”. Then, take snack bags out of their original boxes and store them in open baskets for added convenience. 



When you love to entertain, your home is more than just a place to relax – it’s also a hub for your entire social network to gather together and share good times and great food. With custom organization and clever features to store all of your party supplies, you’ll be ready for anything. And best of all, an organized pantry will allow you to spend less time looking for things in the kitchen and more time chatting with guests.
