- Label all the cans with the products inside them to get to them easily when you are looking for it .sometimes things look alike so its difficult to differentiate.
- Add some rattan baskets and pull drawers, and the Pantry becomes not only functional but easily accessible
- Keep utensil in the big drawers so that they would not create mess in the kitchen instead can be picked when required and used .

- Have wall cabinets they are tall cabinets or full-height pantry doors and can store more things in them .
- Place rarely used stuff above in the cabinet and things used often below close to your hand so that they can be reached easily
- Keep a small stool to reach things placed high so that you need not suffer a fall or a spill of your kitchen stuff in trying to reach them.
