Plan Your Pantry with You in Mind
What is a Pantry to you? How much space do you have to build a pantry? How badly do you need a Pantry? Are you ready for the extra storage space not only for discovering that from the space you already have but also knowing that it costs money to create a good strong pantry?
If you are fortunate enough to have a whole closet or walk-in for a pantry you then have the world of possibilities at your feet. If you have a closet it is still good enough. But if your space does not allow the luxury of an extra pantry closet then there are ways to get around that. You have to then work with the space you already have. If you have a 2nd level maybe under the stairs is some wasted space that can be converted into pull-out drawers or shelves with a door. If you have a coats closet then sharing the bottom or upper half for a pantry may work. Whatever the arrangement in your home remember that there is always opportunity to create a pantry. And that is when you take the help of a designer to make your space functional and maximise every corner, creating more space in your existing space!!
Let's look at walk in pantries. Not only can you use this room with shelves and drawers all around the wall, if space permits you can also have a island, table or counterspace inside it. You can also use it as a broom and vacuum storage space. island inside the pantry can also be used for your extra food prep place with a small sink if you want for washing those veggies before you take them to your main kitchen. This space can also be used for preparing your appetizer plates, wrapping cutlery for a dinner, polishing silverware and making your drinkware spot-free rather that doing in plain sight of your visitors who might like to hang around your Main Kitchen space.
