Howards and Professional Organiser Anita Birges makeover a family’s cupboard pantry using Tansel Premium Pull-Out Storage and some of Howard’s favourite organisers.
THE PANTRY MAKEOVER CHALLENGE
Howards and Professional Organiser Anita Birges help a family who have been struggling with an under bench pantry and limited space.
This family had created a beautiful open plan kitchen, but in turn they lost a wall which meant they couldn’t have the traditional full floor to ceiling pantry.
In this instance, the pantry resided under the kitchen bench. Items were difficult to get to and were getting lost in the back of the pantry. There were double ups and items were out of date, which easily happens when your system is not working.
The challenge was to utilise the depth of the cupboard and maximise the storage, to create the perfect pantry makeover.
The decision was taken to replace the existing shelves with pull-out drawers for a more permanent, durable solution that would get the most out of the space.
For example, we used Tansel Premium Pull-Out Storage to replace existing shelves with slide out storage. Therefore, this utilises the depth of the cupboards and increases storage by as much as 30%.
Add some of Howards favourite organisers to group items and keep things tidy and you have a makeover that is simply amazing.
STOP. SORT. SOLVE
For every project, look at Howards Stop, Sort, Solve method to ensure becoming organised is easier.
Access where your greatest opportunity is and what you are trying to achieve.
In this makeover we are going to replace the shelves with a drawer system to give a durable long term solution. Also, we will group items in organisers to make things easier to access and keep tidy.
Pull everything out, sort into groups and like items.
Once everything is out, we can discard items that are out of date and organise double ups so you can use the closest ‘best before’ first.
Group like items ready to go into the Howards organisers.
This is where you put in place a solution that will keep you organised.
We changed the infrastructure from the existing shelves to Tansel Pull-Out Drawers.
Further, items were sorted, grouped in caddies and organisers to keep tidy and easy to access. Finally, Evovac Suction on the inside of the door completed the solution.
