When our space is organized, our life feels more organized. And if you’re one to spend a good amount of time in the kitchen, there is one physical place that can make or break that serenity.
One minute, all the spices, canned goods, and mixes are perfectly in line with one another. But it doesn’t take much to disrupt that harmonious vibe, and before you know it, everything is in one massive heap. While there are small upgrades you can read about that might do the job, seeing real-life visuals of what someone else does might speak louder than words.
So we turned to Instagram for inspirational pantry photos with tips to follow, and stumbled across Neat Method as a result. This luxury organizing company is located in several markets across the U.S., providing in-home, online, and moving services to those who need them. But beyond the services you can sign up for, we noticed that their Instagram was extremely helpful—featuring brand ambassadors and how they too sip the organizing Kool-Aid.
See below for our favorite photos from an array of inspirational accounts, along with the helpful tips that came with them.
This pantry showcases the use of bamboo pull-out drawers, which organizer Ashley Hatcher mentioned she was hesitant to use because of the fixed heights. However, the adjustable bamboo pull-out drawers seems to be a game-changer, if you ever choose to mix things up a bit.
As professional organizer Nicole Loiterstein mentions, planning and labeling (with main categories and subcategories) is key to a successful pantry. Our favorite part? The fact that the main labels are chalkboards. Cute and resourceful!
These snack baskets are filled while not overflowing, but if it does get to that point, Chelsea Thomas suggests to “stop buying and use first what you already have.”
Hannah Goetz provides another great example of using labels to organize your pantry, this time in the form of sugars, flour, and seeds. And displaying them in the identical glass jars adds an eye-catching element.
While this doesn’t come straight from a Neat Method ambassador, organizing duo Home Sort was featured by one—and we couldn’t help but obsess over this hack. Use magazine holders to store pantry items like fresh produce.
