This can create a beautiful accent in the room, contrasting other cabinets a bit and becoming a focal point rather than just a functional piece of storage.
Rather than adding an actual cabinet, you can convert a closet into a pantry by adding a variety of shelves or drawers to allow for storage of smaller items.
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.
Kitchen pantry design and organization requires a personalized approach -- budget, size and aesthetic depend on what you need. What is your pantry right now: a compilation of shelves or a walk-in closet? How much space do you have to remodel and renovate? What is the storage used for and how do you want it optimized?
Glassware is stored in the upper cabinet, where two glass-fronted doors have eight individual panes of glass each. Below, an attractive counter of quarter-sawn white oak tops a base of drawers, which organizes silverware and placemats. Crown Point’s Newport doors, marked by a quarter-round bead that frames flat panels, grace a pair of side cabinets: one is customized with individual dowels for linen storage, and the other contains shelves.
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 might be able to convert the pantry into a separate room where you can have multiple shelves, sliding cabinets and hanging baskets. If you don't have the space, it might be a large pantry cabinet with slide-out shelves, racks or other organization options depending on its size.
