A freestanding pantry is made of open shelving units fit together to stand free from cabinet furniture, usually against a wall. They allow for storage of pots and pans, as well as dry food items, cans, and bottles.
Whether you have a wide kitchen with a bit of space to spare or a compact kitchen with nowhere else for the pantry to go, using a tall cabinet at one end of the kitchen can be a beautiful solution. This sort of layout creates an appealing symmetry with a tall cabinet at the other end for a fridge or other appliances.
Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.
Looking to make some bold changes during a renovation? Converting an extra room off a kitchen into a pantry may be a better use of space than, say, a rarely used breakfast nook or den, especially if you realistically find yourself spending more time in the kitchen itself.
You can convert a cabinet by adding rolling shelves and wire racks to the interiors and doors for a functional cabinet that frees up counter space and keeps you organized. The rollout drawers pull out toward you to allow for plenty of deep storage space. This is extended on a much larger scale with built-in pantry shelving. These modular multiple shelving units combine door racks with shallow shelves that pull out and rotate to reveal more shelves behind them.
This utilitarian pantry was sited in the center of the home, reserving view-facing walls for the main living areas. The architect included a leaded glass window in one of the pantry’s interior walls, connecting the space to the home’s light and views. “Even if you are in the pantry opening a bottle of wine surrounded by interior walls, you can peer out the window and see through the home toward the lake,” explains Laskoske.
