When we built our current house, I was thrilled we could fit in a larger pantry than we’d ever had before. But how could I organize it so it would hold everything I wanted to include without looking cluttered? That was a challenge I enjoyed tackling, and today, I open the pantry door and smile, knowing everything I need is at my fingertips—and looks pretty, too! If your pantry isn’t everything you want it to be, you’re in luck: today we’re sharing some creative pantry organizing ideas and solutions you might be able to implement in your own pantry.
I love browsing through photos of pantries for ideas I can use to improve my pantry. I’m finding lots to like in the following gorgeous spaces including ideas to incorporate into my own space.
This butler’s pantry is stunning and features so many great elements, from the adjustable open shelving, to the wine fridge and other easily accessible appliances, to the gorgeous finishes. Beautiful!

This lovely pantry offers tons of shelving and workspace topped with a beautiful soapstone counter—even a window!
I love how clean and crisp this pantry is. The uniform shelves lined with great see-through storage containers pair perfectly with the built-in cabinetry.
Following closely on the heels of dream pantries are some of these built-in pantries that also feature great elements such as pull-out shelving.
This brightly painted pocket door shows a hint of the built-in shelving and cabinetry of the pantry behind it.
Tucked in a corner, this gorgeous pantry really makes the most of the square footage available.
This lovely walk-in pantry and storage space is almost too nice to be hidden behind cabinet doors.
Deep sliding shelves replace some of the traditional fixed shelves in this pantry space and allow for tons of storage.
These sturdy sliding shelves offer space for food storage as well as spots for appliances and cooking equipment.

These sliding shelves, tucked behind frosted glass sliding doors, help maximize the space in this tall kitchen. (I wonder if the dog treats are kept on the lower shelves!)
This pantry is rather compact, but with so many sliding shelves, everything is within easy reach.

I would love to walk into this basket-filled pantry every day. Using different-size baskets, readily available online or in home stores, gives everything a home and easily corrals clutter.

This petite pantry utilizes every possible square inch, thanks to floor-to-ceiling shelves, stacking bins, and extra storage on the back of the door.
In this small pantry, the shelving is adjustable so it can be customized to fit whatever is needed. Back-of-the-door shelves boost the available storage.
This is so smart: install standard wire shelves upside down and at an angle for great canned food storage.

If you don’t have a built-in pantry space, a freestanding pantry might be a viable option. Custom freestanding pantries are available, or you can repurpose an unused entertainment center, armoire, or wardrobe.
When organizing your pantry, the containers you use are key. Use bins, baskets, and clear containers that enable you to see the contents. Choose matching or contrasting containers as you like.
With clear storage options, you can see what you have and what you need more of. The uniform containers look nice, too!
