Candie and Steven Tramonte had one of those little L-shaped, reach-in pantries - nothing to brag about, but it served a purpose. Boxed and canned goods and everyday kitchen staples lined its shelves.
Sometimes planning the storage in your home can be a matter of prioritizing. A space used for a closet near the kitchen can be handy for storing coats and boots or cleaning supplies, but converting this space into a pantry with many shelves and drawers may be the better option for your needs.
While door styles and finishes depend on a home’s style and personal taste, there are important details to consider when selecting and arranging cabinets. A simple rule of thumb governs the choice between open shelving and solid cabinets, explains Vitzthum. Open shelving is perfect for everyday needs, but cabinet doors are recommended for infrequently accessed objects to combat dust accumulation. Glass-front cabinets keep needed objects in plain sight; however, they, too, require occasional dusting and cleaning.
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.
Planning a dream kitchen and facing reality can be two different things. In a perfect world we could have endless pantry storage at our fingertips, but sometimes fitting a pantry into the kitchen (or elsewhere in the home) takes some compromising — or at least a little creativity. Here’s a wide range of ideas for where you might best fit a pantry into your home, so you can find an option that works best for you.
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.
