Kitchen Pantry Ideas
Fit a pantry into a small space
Why not turn a small, awkward space into a pantry? You could put it under the stairs or in a small corner space, for example.
Buy sliding doors
Fit sliding doors to keep your pantry neatly out of sight. This gives you the chance to design a unique, interesting pantry entrance.
Use a range of shelves and racks
Find a way of fitting in everything that you need to store in your pantry. This means getting the right mixture of shelves and racks.
Choose a certain style
Work out what style or feel you want in here. Rustic or luxurious looks work equally well if the DIY tasks are carried out to a high standard.
Place old pieces of furniture
This is an excellent opportunity to re-purpose older items. Bookcases, shelves, and cabinets can all come in handy in this room.

DIY Pull-Out Cabinet Shelves for Under $30 Each

Do you ever forget about kitchen items you own because they ended up buried in the back of one of your cabinets? Deep base cabinets are great for the storage of large pots and pans, but things often get pushed to the back and forgotten about or left there to avoid having to bend down and dig them out. Pull-out cabinet shelves are the perfect solution to that problem and make the best use of all available storage by making it easily and instantly accessible!I built pull-out cabinet shelves for my kitchen base cabinets and could not be happier with how much function they add to our kitchen. Even though the storage space was there all along, it was virtually hidden and the pull-out shelves brought our stored items back into use. This project was not difficult but if you are unfamiliar with using pocket hole screws, it may take a bit of practice and therefore, I would describe it as a medium difficulty project.

Build A Storage Shelf To Hide And Protect Pipes In Your Garage

The water access pipes located in my garage were becoming a problem. Besides being ugly, we were constantly tapping them with our cars and that wasn’t good. One day, while staring at a pile of leftover wood, I decided to build myself a storage shelf to cover those ugly pipes. It wasn’t a complicated DIY and with a few tools and some scrap wood, you too can protect your pipes and add some storage. Here’s how I did it.
