Pantry Problems, Phooey!

It’s 7:00 am, and you are searching for items to pack in the kids’ lunches.  The bag of popcorn has now fallen over and spilled at your feet.  The box of Cheez-Its got crushed amidst all the other items.  You can’t find the brown lunch bags and the box of sandwich baggies got flipped upside down and you now have little, clear baggies raining down on your head.

If this sounds like your mornings, then it’s time to get that pantry under control, people!  Some of you might be thinking, “ I wish I HAD a pantry.  I have crazy, unorganized kitchen cabinets with not enough space.”  Some of you may have pantry space, but it just wasn’t designed well for your needs.

We definitely have a solution for you.  Our pantry organizing systems will blow your mind.  Whether the space is big or small, we will sit down with you for a complimentary design consultation and prioritize what is important to you to fit your needs.  Then, together, we will design your new pantry space.  You might think that all pantries are alike.  You imagine a wall or even a closet-type space with shelves lining the walls, right?  Boring!

Our pantry systems offer such innovative features as pull-out wine racks, baskets, and drawers.  We think the pull out wine rack is pretty self-explanatory and pretty cool.  We also think that you will agree!  The pull out baskets is a fantastic feature for storing items like bags of chips or popcorn.  They don’t get crushed by other heavier items.  They rest in there comfortably, remaining uncrushed.  The drawers are a great way to store items like lunch bags, sandwich baggies, and foil.

We also offer dividers which are really handy for storing items like baking sheets, cooling racks, and even platters for entertaining.  By storing them in the dividers, they aren’t stacked on top of each other like a precarious leaning tower of platters!  You can find what you need easily without the risk of breaking Grandma’s antique turkey platter.

Of course, we still offer shelving as well.  We know this is still an essential part of your storage space.  You may choose to use the shelving for your canned goods, cereal, or paper towels to name just a few items.  But, now, shelves aren’t your ONLY means of storage.

If you truly don’t have a storage space, we can still make good use of the space in your kitchen or maybe another area of your home.  Perhaps you have a little extra space in your garage or laundry room.  Nobody said that all pantry storage must take place in the kitchen.  While it is too hot in Florida to store most food items in the garage, you could get items like paper towels and platters out of your kitchen space.  If you have some space in your laundry room, you can definitely store food and paper items there.

At Artistic Closet Designs, we love to maximize your space!  Even if you think there is no way we could find a better use of your space, we’ll do our best to surprise you!  We aren’t only closet design specialists.  We love to design storage for any and every space.  So, if you live on the east coast from Vero Beach up through Melbourne, FL, please give us a call today.  We look forward to coming up with the storage solution for you!

No Space For a Permanent Guest Room? No Worries!

We all have them from time to time, some more frequently than others. What are they? Guests! Particularly living here in Florida, most of us have house guests at least once a year, if not more. If you don’t live in our beautiful state, then visiting it is the next best thing! Houseguests come in a wide variety. Some guests are friends, some are family, but they all need a place to sleep when they come! There is that occasional guest that just wants to visit with you and gets a hotel room. But, for the most part, when guests come to visit, they also come to stay at your house.
