Architects, builders and designers are all paying more attention to storage spaces: We want our kitchen pantries to be larger, more functional and more attractive.
So when their interior designer, Cindy Aplanalp-Yates of the Chairma Design Group, suggested a super pantry as part of a kitchen remodeling project, they were all in.
If you’re considering installing pantry cabinets, you’ll first want to measure the space in your existing or planned pantry. If you’ve got a large space with room for plenty of cabinets, doors, and pullouts, you’re in luck. It’s more likely that your pantry space is somewhat crowded, which means you’ll need an efficient pantry cabinet plan. This might mean installing shallower shelves and drawers, or a tambour door that will allow for maximum efficiency in your kitchen storage space. Using Wellborn’s YouDrawIt program, it is possible to make your pantry however you want it. Pantry cabinets are essential to any room in the home but in the heart of the home it is a necessity. With pantry cabinets, it’s about functionality and organization.
Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.
You can also consider using some open cabinets without doors to put everything within immediate reach.
One downside of this solution that should be noted is the loss of some counter space, compared to using standard upper and lower cabinets with a stretch of counter between.
