Smart Pantry Design Ideas

CortneyJune 16, 2020

Our kitchen reno is in full swing – pretty cabinets, dazzling backsplash and fun, new appliances but my favorite part? The plans for our walk-in pantry! Keep scrolling to see what we have up our sleeve when it comes to beautiful, yet practical and smart pantry design!

Smart Pantry Design


1. Airtight Food Container with Labels

2. Two Tier Cake Stand

3. Urusa Basket Tower

4. Large Acrylic Stackable Food Bins

5. Coffee Canister

6.  Gold Paper Towel Holder

7. Small Milk Crate Basket

8. Spice Jars with Labels

9. 1 Gallon Glass Jar

10. Gold Wire Fruit Basket

11. Acrylic Food Bins with Handles

My dreams for my smart pantry design are much like other spaces in our home – functional and practical but also beautiful. I want our home to be a space of comfort, happiness, and peace that looks nice and functions even better. Our pantry is no exception! I have been shopping around finding storage and organization pieces that will transform our kitchen pantry from a messy closet to an organized, smart pantry!

No matter what your budget, pantry size, or goals it doesn’t take much to accomplish your dream pantry! Most of the pieces above are from Amazon or Target. Here are a few of my favorite tips for accomplishing a beautiful pantry design:

  • Remove from the Boxes. Removing snacks you purchase often from the packing and putting them in something like these Airtight Food Containers. Not only does it make it easier to see when you’re running low, but it will also look more neat and tidy! If you don’t want to remove everything from the box, these Acrylic Stackable Food Bins are a great option, too. Giving everything a cohesive look (like these Spice Jars with Labels) will make your pantry much more appealing aesthetically.
  • Follow Trends. Even though it’s the pantry, I like to keep it on-trend and theme with the rest of my home decor. This has me reaching for southern glam finds, mixed metals pieces, and acrylic options. I love how it flows with the rest of our kitchen!
  • Have a Spot for Everything. Staying organized is easy when you know exactly where something goes! One thing I’ve learned is to create a spot for everything. This Urusa Basket Tower is a great piece because it’s tall, yet stylish. You could use it to hold so many different things – fruit, bread, individually wrapped snacks just to name a few! I also love this Gold Wire Fruit Basket as a smaller option for fruits and veggies.

I hope this post inspired you for a little pantry organization of your own! If you do, please share and tag me on social media so I can see (@CortneyWheeler). See some of my favorite smart pantry design inspo below.

    Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

    CLICK HERE to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.

    Strike when the iron’s hot!

    Thanks and keep up the great work!
