A modern pantry has to be more than just a closet where you store dry food for your family. There are now many more options for food than there used to be, and there are technologies that can make your storage space more useful than it has ever been before. Neglecting these things would keep you from experiencing all that modern society has to offer. Below are a few things that you need to make sure that you have in your pantry if you want it to be updated and useful.
If your food gets wet, it can mold, rot, and decay. Things like bread and other grain-based products are especially susceptible to this type of deterioration. However, many people do not realize that the same thing can happen if your pantry is wet and damp, even if there is not a direct leak. A dehumidifier can keep the air as dry as possible. This can help your food to last longer. It can improve health conditions and ensure that people do not get food poisoning. This one simple step will preserve your stored food, saving you money in the long run because you will not have to replace items until they are consumed.
It is important to note that a dehumidifier should especially be used if your pantry is in the basement. Below-ground spaces tend to hold a lot more moisture than above-ground spaces. Since basements are convenient for storage, a dehumidifier is the perfect way to make your basement incredibly useful.
Even if your pantry has some built-in shelves, you should not assume that it is as effective as it can be. You may be able to get shelving units with shelves that are closer together than the built-in ones, for instance, allowing you to fit more food in the same amount of space. You could also look for shelves that are deeper than the ones you have currently, making effective use of the whole pantry.
Create Space for Small Appliances
Finally, you may want to think about using your pantry to store some of your smaller appliances that you do not use very often. This is the perfect place for blenders, electric mixers, and the like. When setting up your new shelving units, adjust them so that the lowest shelves are taller than the upper ones. You can then use those low shelves to organize the many small appliances that fill modern kitchens, reducing clutter.

Your old pantry is a good start, but it needs some help to be transformed into a modern space. Use the tips listed above to make easy renovations and changes in your home. You can alter the storage space that you have so that it best fulfills your needs.

With the new year upon us, it’s time to think about making changes in ourselves and the world we live in. There’s no better place to start than with our living spaces, and that means paying attention to the shifts in design taking place both now and over the long term.
When it comes to interior styles in the kitchen, there are a few trends that have earned some longevity: eco-friendly materials, a minimalist aesthetic, and open floor plans aren’t going away anytime soon. But in 2013, look for these kitchen styles working their way into current design trends.
Professional kitchen design trends in 2013 include natural tones, smart storage, and island or peninsula designs as you can see in the above kitchen remodel by Case Design/Remodeling Birmingham.
Increased usefulness. Making our living spaces more livable won’t be new in 2013, but we’ll definitely see this trend continue to grow. In the kitchen it’s of utmost importance for homeowners to accommodate the range of activities taking place in the epicenter of the home. Simple but big changes can really streamline your kitchen use, such as adding a kitchen island, which can literally double the workspace, cabinet storage, and seating options in smaller kitchens.
Antique and traditional fixtures. Kitchens will start to move away from the clean lines and lack of adornment that’s found in modern design. Intricate fixtures offer a way to add a touch of traditional style to an unembellished space, and we’ll be seeing more old-fashioned looking fixtures doubling as design accents in kitchens and bathrooms.
Deep blues and light neutrals. Color trends are moving away from bright, bold hues and neons in favor of universal colors and neutral tones that brighten a space without dominating it. In the kitchen, look for deep blues tones against light yellows and creamy whites that keep the kitchen looking clean and bright while still creating a rich color scheme.
Durable countertops. Natural stone countertops look beautiful, but man-made knockoffs are impervious to damage and looking more like the real thing every day. Inline with increasing usefulness, homeowners are seeking out countertops that are either completely durable and maintenance free or already weathered looking at the time they’re installed.
Simplicity and downsizing. This is another ongoing trend that will continue in 2013 and is directly reflected in our homes and the way we live. More people are living more simply, in smaller spaces, and in multi-family or multi-generational homes. In the kitchen we see this need to simply reflected in open spaces, natural lighting, and clutter-free countertops. A kitchen that contains a plethora of items and keeps them all hidden away seems to create peace of mind and a peaceful living space.

Appliances can consume large amounts of energy, the costs of which are rising steeply. Saving energy with home appliances can help you cut your energy costs and reduce pollution. Most appliances, including kitchen appliances, use power even when they are turned off, creating a so-called phantom load. One of the easiest ways to save energy with home appliances is by plugging them into a power strip that can be turned off or by simply unplugging appliances when they are not in use. Even newer appliances can be energy vampires. Refrigerators, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers account for a large percentage of your home’s energy use. Energy-efficient appliances are an alternative that can help you save dramatically on your energy costs.
Energy-efficient appliances are one of the most important investments a home owner can make. Compared to a refrigerator built in 1970, today’s energy efficient refrigerators use about 75 percent less energy even though the size and capability of the appliance have increased substantially. Any appliance older than 12 years may be using at least twice the energy of today’s energy efficient appliances. When shopping for energy-efficient appliances, homeowners should compare the power usage, capabilities and features of various appliances to determine which one will best meet their needs.
Furnishing your home can be fun and rewarding. For once, you can get rid of all of the dorm-room hand me downs and buy something that suits your taste. But, what is your taste, and will it work with your newest home? Here are some tips on choosing the right furniture for your home.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
Determining your style may be the hardest part about selecting furniture for your home. The Casual look is usually very comfortable, with overstuffed chairs and an earthy look. It may make you think of a cabin in the woods. Usually, casual furniture will look kind of big and boxy, like Dad’s old recliner. This is where you’ll find the micro suede materials the most often.
Contemporary furniture is usually loaded with metallic finishes and glass. The chairs and sofas will have an angular design. Some of these pieces can be surprisingly comfortable, in spite of the sharp corners and angular shapes. You’ll often find unusual fabrics that have a different weight or texture. You’ll also find vinyl in these furnishings.
Americans are turning more and more to online shopping. Black Friday and Cyber Monday online sales set new records in 2012. As we turn to the internet increasingly to find great bargains, it’s important that you take some basic precautions to protect your finances.
Only use secure transaction sites.When you first go to most websites, you are on an “unsecured” connection. This means that your internet activity could be visible to anyone with access to your network (i.e. a public WiFi hotspot). As long as you’re not transmitting sensitive personal information – like credit card information – you’re okay. However, if you are going to send any personal information, make sure that the website you’re using is connected through a Secured Socket Layer (SSL) connection. You can see this in two ways:
The address bar has “https” in front of the domain name. Normally, this would be “http”. The “s” indicates a secure connection.
Your web browser displays a “padlock” symbol. This symbol varies from browser to browser, but should be located near the website address. Here are examples from Chrome and Explorer:
