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.
In remodeling or renovating an existing home, finding room for a pantry poses a challenge, especially considering kitchens’ space-draining features, such as appliances, eat-in areas, built-in desks, and islands. Although butler’s and food pantries are traditionally located between the kitchen and dining room and off the kitchen respectively, today’s standards are flexible, and size and location are customized to suit cooking and entertaining tendencies.
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.
Plus, if you use a sturdy cabinet, it can later be moved to a new home more easily than a true built-in. Just be sure to anchor it carefully.
The super pantry, as Aplanalp-Yates describes it, is so much more than a place to store food. It's a pantry, butler's pantry, catering kitchen and linen closet all in one.
Pantries also can alleviate crowding in the kitchen by accepting certain appliances. Pamela Shangraw-Murdough, owner of Kennebunk Kitchens & Baths in Maine, suggests including appliances, such as microwaves, which are not used everyday.
