1.It’s a mess

The No. 1 sign that it’s time to upgrade your pantry is clutter. You can add in baskets, bins and other storage containers all you want, but the simple fact is if you don’t have enough space, the only solution is to install a better functioning pantry. Period.

2.You can’t find anything

We’ve all been there—you’re staring into your pantry searching for something you know is there but it’s eluding you due to clutter and chaos. If you’re relying on builder-grade shelves that are most likely too tall to fully take advantage of the space and provide sufficient storage, then you’re in need of a solution that will make your life easier—a better functioning pantry! Think varying height shelves to accommodate all sizes of items you need to store, pull out drawers and shelves for easy access to deeper items, racks to organize spices and oils, and cabinet dividers for large plates, baking pans and Tupperware.

3.You don’t have enough storage space

When we say you don’t have enough storage space, we mean you don’t have enough usable storage space. Most builder-grade pantries neglect to take full advantage of vertical space, leaving you feeling like there isn’t enough room for everything you want to store. With our storage solutions, we’ll be able to customize a pantry that takes advantage of your entire space so you have more room. Pro tip: we recommend storing lighter items up in the higher shelves and cabinets and heavier things down lower to make getting them in and out easier.

4.Getting things down is a workout

If you’re forced to store larger items like crockpots and icemakers way up high or on the floor, you’re in for a workout every time you have to get them down. Customizing the height of your pantry shelves is one of the best features in a new pantry, as it allows for easier access to those larger items.

5.You dread unloading the groceries

You know your pantry isn’t functioning properly if you absolutely dread unloading the groceries. When there’s proper storage, you get excited—even giddy—about putting all of the new items in their place. But if your pantry is a hot mess, adding anything else to it can cause a lot of anxiety. Solution: let us help you install a better functioning pantry!
