Let’s take a look at some ideas for organizing your tiny kitchen that doesn’t have a pantry closet…
If you’re wondering how to organize a small kitchen without a pantry, the key is to take advantage of existing storage space.
The last thing you want to do is clutter a small kitchen with MORE stuff.
Feeling stuck and overwhelmed with all your kitchen clutter?
There are a handful of free-standing storage compartments that might benefit your cause – I’ll talk about those options in a moment.
For now, let’s focus on utilizing all of the space that you already have available for storage.
Small Kitchen Cabinet Organization
If you’re wondering HOW to organize a small kitchen WITHOUT a pantry, consider trying one of these easy ideas to get more space AND still be organized.
When considering existing storage space in the kitchen your cabinets are probably the first thing that comes to mind.
Organizing kitchen cabinets without a pantry can be difficult, but with a bit of work, they can store food, glasses, plates, bowls, pans, and everything else you might need in the kitchen.
Consider yourself extra lucky if you have sufficient space above your cabinets – That’s a great place to store pots, pans, and accessories that aren’t used as frequently as others.
You can shop online or at your local home goods store to find a variety of inserts meant to maximize storage efficiency.
For example, you can get tiered organizers for inside cabinets (see below) to make it easier to organize a small kitchen without a pantry – a perfect no pantry solution!
Each level on the organizer can hold cans or other food items while maximizing storage space AND making items easy to find.
And since they are stacked on top of one another it’s more efficient than storing food in the cabinet on a single level.
No Pantry? How To Store Food
But what if you’re wondering how to store food when you don’t have a pantry and also don’t want to buy additional items? If that’s the case, it usually boils down to efficient organization.
There are some food items that can naturally be stacked on top of one another, thus taking advantage of otherwise empty cabinet space.
For example, you can stack two or three canned items in a cabinet whereas you would only be able to put one drinking glass in the same area.
Apartment Kitchen Solutions
Apartment pantry solutions can be a bit more difficult because apartments tend to have even less cabinet space.
In those situations, you may want to purchase a free-standing cabinet or wardrobe to function as a pantry.
You can even set it in a room other than the kitchen if there is limited space.
No Pantry Storage Ideas
From creating a pantry space in your kitchen corner to getting creative with basket organizers in your cabinets, there are many no pantry storage ideas you can try (as you’ve seen in the pictures and DIY ideas above).
