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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For modest homes, pantries work well when they double as circulation space, says architect Sandra Vitzthum of Montpelier, Vermont. Her designs commonly line a short hallway with pantry-style storage cabinets, forming a dual-use area.
