Having an organized kitchen begins with the cabinetry. By choosing a few must have kitchen cabinets, I have found my time in the kitchen more enjoyable because everything has it’s place. When my husband and I talked about remodeling our kitchen, I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful kitchen. Having the guts to order the cabinetry online has truly paid off. Our budget went much further and we have received higher quality and more stylish cabinets than if we would have went to a home improvement store.
Today, I want to share with you my 3 favorite cabinets. For me, they are the Must Have Kitchen Cabinets that every dream kitchen should include.
Kitchen Pantry – A Must Have Kitchen Cabinet
In our first home, we remodeled our kitchen too. We had a narrow kitchen pantry without roll out shelves. We stored all of our food in the pantry and liked the use of it. When we built our second home, the kitchen layouts didn’t offer a kitchen pantry cabinet, but a closet size pantry located off of the kitchen. I grew use to this and thought I might want this again.
While designing our new kitchen, we played with the idea of a pantry closet and kitchen pantry cabinetry. Adding an actual pantry closet would take away space from the actual kitchen and also take away from the view of our backyard with our expansive windows. Our design for pantry cabinetry didn’t seem to work no matter which way we placed it. Lucky for us, Tessa, our CliqStudios kitchen designer came up with a beautiful plan that we enjoy today.
By far, the CliqStudios PC308424-ROT Pantry with roll out trays is my favorite and most-used cabinet in the whole kitchen. Although they offer larger, the 30″ Pantry is perfect for our family of 4. It fits perfectly between the refrigerator and double oven. Tessa did a great job giving us all of the kitchen must-haves on our list while making it flow naturally in the layout.
I still don’t know if the order of the food in the cabinets is going to stay. I have found myself rearranging items throughout the whole kitchen as I see how things flow in the new kitchen layout. For now, I have all of my baking needs that I don’t use often like flour, brown sugar, brownie mix, etc on the bottom shelf.
I store use and more baking/cooking supplies on the 2nd from the bottom shelf.
On the 2nd to the top shelf, I store healthy snacks, rice, and other mixes.
On the top shelf, I store a few seasoning type items. All of the bottom shelves in the CliqStudios Pantry with roll out trays. It makes it easy to access every single item on every single shelf.
The top section of the pantry came with 4 shelves, we only used 3 shelves. All shelves are adjustable. I am so happy we chose the pantry and that Tessa was able to fit it into our kitchen layout. The Kitchen Pantry Cabinet is a must have kitchen cabinet to store all your food conveniently in one place.
Lazy Susan – A Must Have Kitchen Cabinet
My kids are still amazed by the Super Lazy Susan. Yes, they really did say that either Santa or Jesus Must Have Made the Lazy Susan… I think they like it because it moves around and because their grandma has one in her kitchen. I like it because I can store a LOT of food in it and it is all easily accessible.
I just went shopping at Sam’s Club, so I have a LOT of canned goods in the Super Lazy Susan right now, as you can see in the above pictures. It really stores a ton of food.
It is sturdy too with 1/2″ plywood for added strength. My mother-in-law has mentioned several times that her lazy susan is plastic and not strong like this one. She stores her ziploc bags and containers in her lazy susan.
Being in a corner base cabinet, a lazy susan is the best use of space by far. Otherwise, it is a wasted corner cabinet. The Lazy Susan is a must have kitchen cabinet to utilize space!
Tray Divider – A Must Have Kitchen Cabinet
I don’t know about you but I have a lot of cutting boards, cookie trays, and other trays. The CliqStudios TB18R Tray Divider cabinet is amazing. When Tessa recommended adding a tray divider, I agreed. I expected a narrow cabinet to fit a few cookie sheets, as what I’ve had in the past. However, what I received was an amazing cabinet with 4 spaces for trays. I can organize all of my trays easily now. The spaces are adjustable, so if you have more cookie sheets than serving trays, you can give yourself more room wherever needed.
I use one for extra oven and boiler racks, one for cutting boards, one for cookie sheets, and one for pizza stones and muffin pans. The Tray Divider is a must have kitchen cabinet to keep your kitchen organized.
