Shallow cabinets make for easier location of things in the pantry....things won’s get lost behind other packages. Of course, organizing by product type is important. I like clear plastic bins for small items like spices. Always order more shelves than you think you will need. I like to put tall things on one shelf and short things on another, and when you organize that way, you will often find that you have space for one or two more shelves. I do the same with my kitchen cabinets and always order one extra shelf for the upper cabinets. Lower kitchen cabinets are always deeper, and I like roll-out shelf-drawers because you can find rarely-used pots or Pyrex more easily.

I had a solid l-shaped brick wall in my kitchen where the previous owners had a wall table located. I opted for sturdy IKEA bookcases (guaranteed to never sag) with glass doors and LED Strip lighting Presto! Custom-looking pantry that goes ceiling to floor.
