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.
If you have a nearby island to act as prep space, losing a little counter may be well worth the trade-off.
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.
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.
Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, crafts varying pantry styles, many of which assimilate into kitchen cabinetry without the need for a standalone room, says President George Achey. Options include a narrow slide-out drawer for spices, a wider drawer for cans and spices, and a walk-in corner pantry unit that extends 36 inches from the corner. If space allows, the company also crafts comprehensive butler’s pantries, typically with mullioned window cabinets above and drawer storage below.
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.
