Welcome to Pantry Goals, your destination for all the practical tips and need-to-know tricks to get your space in tip-top shape (and keep it that way).
Recently, we talked about cute little pantries and all of their clever small-space solutions, so it’s only fair to do a roundup of larger-than-life pantries, too. Our favorite celebrities can often be relied on for inspiration, and the following kitchens have us seeing green.
Be warned: A lot of the pantries you’re about to see are roughly the size of a normal person’s kitchens. However, they still have some really great organization ideas that we’re 100 percent going to steal to suit our own home's needs.
Right off the bat, you’re going to notice a lot of these celebrity pantries were created with professional help from The Home Edit. Apparently it’s the go-to organizing service for the stars, and we can see why. Mandy Moore’s made-over pantry looks simply stunning, from the rotating spices to the huge pile of paper towels—someone has been stocking up! We love the idea of using Lazy Susans to keep small jars accessible.
Khloé Kardashian is a full-blown organization expert. She even has a series of organizing videos that she calls “KHLO-C-D!” In her popular pantry tour, she shows off her crazy clean food storage space, which features plastic containers and baskets galore. Everything in her pantry is labeled, and we love her tip to sort snacks by who eats them, creating a “Mom Basket” and a “Dad Basket.”
Check out actress Tiffani Thiessen’s crisp, clean pantry. We’re digging the cute dual-level sliding baskets where she keeps canned goods—it’s a great way to make the most of taller cabinets. Plus, it seems like this pantry is organized with the most-used items down below and lesser-used ones up high. Smart.
We spy more Lazy Susans in actress Busy Philipps’ pantry. She doesn’t just use them for spices either—they’re holding all sorts of condiments and cooking essentials. Philipps also has an amazing collection of cookbooks that are lined up along a high shelf (color-coded to resemble a rainbow, impressive!).
Here’s something you don’t see every day: An outdoor kitchen. Celebrity chef and TV star Bobby Flay has a full-blown kitchen in his backyard, and it’s stocked with his cooking essentials. We’re big fans of the tower of rustic baskets where he keeps his onions and citrus fruits. The mini fridge is a nice touch, too.
The ladies behind The Home Edit strike again. They worked their magic on model Molly Sims’ pantry, and the results are mesmerizing. All the matching see-through containers are labeled in a lovely font, and they’re even arranged by alternating sizes. The stacking caddies on the lower shelf are a great way to store items like tea bags, candy bars, and small snack bags, too.
These full-length cabinets are so, so great. Vanessa Lachey explains she and her family spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so it’s important to her that they have an organized space. It looks like she stashed kid-friendly snacks on the lower shelves so little ones can help themselves, while cooking and baking supplies live a little higher up.
We are so drawn to Mindy Kaling’s relatable, but still #goals pantry. Slide-out drawers will be your best friend in thin, deep cabinets like hers, as they’ll let you reach items in the back without knocking everything over. We like the idea of labeling each drawer to help keep things organized by function, too.
Real Housewife Heather Dubrow has an incredibly lavish kitchen, complete with a wall of Champagne bottles. However, her pantry is a little more lived-in, and there’s one ingenious feature that we’re absolutely obsessed with: the modern dumbwaiter that brings groceries straight from the garage into the pantry. Where do we get one of those?
