Remove the doors: For many kitchens, especially in older homes, a swinging door to a pantry can be the culprit of unusable space. Especially doors that are inward swinging, getting behind the door with full hands may be a hassle and storage becomes cumbersome. Consider removing the doors, or if pocket doors or accordion doors are an option, install these. If you are a person who keeps a tidy pantry, a well organized pantry, can be beautiful décor in a kitchen!

A dirty condenser makes your refrigerator work harder and less efficiently. Place your refrigerator out of direct sunlight or heat producing appliances in your kitchen. Test the seal of your refrigerator to ensure cold air isn’t escaping through the doors. If a paper can easily be removed while the door is closed, the seal or latches on the door may need to be tightened or replaced.
