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.
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.
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.
Not only do their shelves sport rows of matching baskets and air-tight containers, but they also have drawers and cabinets to store dishes, extra silverware or pans and baking items.
Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.
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.
