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.
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.
Consider giving this pantry cabinet its own finish (like the beautiful soft blue-gray pictured here) to act as an accent. This is also a clever way to avoid having to match a newly added pantry to existing cabinets.
One downside of this solution that should be noted is the loss of some counter space, compared to using standard upper and lower cabinets with a stretch of counter between.
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.
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.
