As soon as we decided to buy our new country house, I knew the first thing I wanted to work on was the pantry. I know it may seem like an odd choice—after all, you can always just close the door, right? Who’s going to see it?
But at the same time, finding joy in every corner of my home is important to me, and those practical, everyday places that you encounter are a perfect candidate for an infusion of joy!
I need to start with some work on the walls (textured and green are headed out), and getting new shelves and storage, but as I hunt for inspiration, there’s one thing I keep encountering: beautiful canisters.
Whether you keep them in the pantry or on the counter in your kitchen, canisters are a fun way to organize and display some of your most frequently used items.
We traditionally think of storing flour and sugar in these kind of canisters, but consider what you actually use before dumping out a bag of flour. You can just as easily use a practical canister to house your k-cups or tea bags.
Whatever it is that you reach for a lot, allow it to be elevated and happy-making by busting it out of a cardboard box and putting it into a pretty container.
So, in the spirit of adding joy and life to utilitarian spaces, today I’m rounding up some pretty canisters and canister sets that are pantry practical but pretty enough to be on display in your kitchen.
