When located along an outside wall, food pantries benefit from the inclusion of a window, a design detail Vitzthum highly favors: “It allows you to see items in natural light.” Instead of doors, keeping a pantry open to the kitchen allows for quick access as well as free flow of light between the spaces.
So when their interior designer, Cindy Aplanalp-Yates of the Chairma Design Group, suggested a super pantry as part of a kitchen remodeling project, they were all in.
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.
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.
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.
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.
