Go shallower. By separating smaller objects like spices from the rest of your pantry goods, you just might be able to get away with a smaller main pantry.Try this: If your pantry is located in a 24-inch-deep base or tall cabinet, switch it up. Relocate your key pantry items to an upper wall cabinet in the work area. "Deep pantries offer too many opportunities for small objects to get lost," Anderson says. "A wall cabinet, on the other hand, is only 12 inches deep. While that shallower depth can't hold as much, there's a lot less chance for things to go missing."If you're renovating a kitchen, consider adding a built-in door rack (they come in sizes that accommodate either spices or cans). Though the back shelves must be made shallower to accommodate this feature, the upside is that the items on those shelves will be even easier to find at a glance. Custom Cabinets by Design
Don't reinvent the wheel. How easy it is for us to forget how ingenious the supersimple lazy Susan really is. Use one or many in the pantry so you can find what you need with a spin of the wheel.
