Small is Cool: Yes You Do Have a Pantry

Pin it button big

Looking at all these beautiful small cool kitchens has made us a little jealous of those who have the time and resources to really create the space they want. We're even more jealous, we must admit, of those with full walk-in pantries.

We came across a couple articles, though, that reminded us that pantries are a state of mind - not an expanse of space. This piece from Organized Home says, A pantry's not a place, it's an attitude! A pantry is a reservoir of consumable goods for rainy days and unexpected guests; a pantry that is well-edited and well-stocked is a resource for every cook. We were inspired by this pantry makeover at Real Simple...

...and this organization by Amber. This article from HGTV had some good, familiar tips (magnetic boards, clear plastic bins) and some new ones (under-counter wine glass racks).

In your small kitchen, what do you call your pantry? Do you have one - whether it's a walk-in larder or a basket on the fridge?
