Here are three parts of my kitchen organization guide: here are some storage tips for food and beverages.
Other than the fridge, there are other storage options for root vegetables such as baskets, racks and drawers. For fresh food such as bread and vegetables, separate refrigerated/dehumidified drawers are the ideal solution.
An inexpensive and simple alternative to a ventilated drawer is to make one in your existing kitchen. It should be deep enough and strong enough to hold root vegetables such as potatoes. You should drill ventilation holes along the sides of your bottom kitchen drawer and one along the front. To allow air to circulate under your vegetables, place a rack or two in the bottom drawer.
A walk-in larder would be the best store cupboard for canned and packaged foods such as olive oil, dry flour, salt, and dried flour. It would have a slate or marble slab to store cooked or prepared food and shelves that extend up to the walls. We would be content with a few drawers or a small cupboard.
A drawer is a great place to store food because you can pull it out and see the back of the container at a glance. When you are building your own kitchen, measure the contents of your shelves and make drawers to fit. One drawer is for jams and cans; the other one is for larger jars and packets.
There’s an easy way for you to keep your items safe by keeping them in a cupboard. Cut a U-shape from the middle of each shelf’s front. Although you will lose some surface area, you get better access. Hanging a hook for string bags or aprons on the top of a tall cupboard can be done since the door has enough space.
Keep wine and other drinks in another place, besides the ones you use regularly. A cellar or an outbuilding are ideal for storing drinks in the kitchen.
