Design for optimal food storage.

To prevent losing items due to clutter, design with 12″ or 14″ deep shelves for food storage. If you are storing bulk items like paper towels, use 16″ deep shelves.

PRO TIP! Use a freedomRail 16″ Wire Shelves as the top shelf in your pantry design for bulk storage. You’ll be able to look through the ventilated wire to see what you have.

Group like items together.

To avoid fishing for small products like mix packets, organize them into a container or bin and place them at a user-appropriate height.

PRO TIP! Use Organized Living Kitchen Organizers for convenient storage.

 

Design with adjustable shelving.

Organized Living freedomRail is the only truly adjustable system. Move shelving and components to maximize space in your pantry and to accommodate changing storage needs.

Keep things accessible.

Don’t forget about the door.
