My Glasgow Kitchen

My Little Corner of the World

My priority when planning my kitchen cabinets were to ensure that I had sufficient storage space and additional ones.

I had planned it according to zones.

I realized that the main bulk of it was actually the non-consumables. 

The consumables could easily fit into my food pantry (G)


I did a kitchen inventory for the non-consumables and split it into zones.
