Looking to make some bold changes during a renovation? Converting an extra room off a kitchen into a pantry may be a better use of space than, say, a rarely used breakfast nook or den, especially if you realistically find yourself spending more time in the kitchen itself.
In remodeling or renovating an existing home, finding room for a pantry poses a challenge, especially considering kitchens’ space-draining features, such as appliances, eat-in areas, built-in desks, and islands. Although butler’s and food pantries are traditionally located between the kitchen and dining room and off the kitchen respectively, today’s standards are flexible, and size and location are customized to suit cooking and entertaining tendencies.
Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.
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.
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.
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.
