With the holiday season coming up, we’re all going to be spending more time in the kitchen. Holiday cooking and baking is a fun way that the whole family can spend time together, but without the right kitchen setup, your organized kitchen space can get out of hand. It’s times like these, when too many hands are trying to get into that tiny pantry cabinet for this spice or that extra cup of sugar, that make you realize how much more efficient your kitchen could be if there was a designated pantry space.
Pantries offer a central place to keep food items, paper products, seasonal serving dishes, and even bulk purchases – allowing you to find things faster when you need them. If you’re considering doing some kitchen remodeling either before or after the holidays, don’t forget to incorporate a pantry for better kitchen organization.
Pantry Designs for Every Kitchen Size
Large Kitchens: If space is available, many homeowners choose to create a walk-in pantry room. The pantry can include open shelving, drawers, wine racks, small appliance storage, and cabinets, depending on how elaborate you want your walk-in pantry to be.
Medium-Sized Kitchens: If your home has an existing closet in or near the kitchen, you can easily convert it into a reach-in pantry closet. With a pantry closet you can still add unique, custom organization, such as narrow slots for cookie sheets, open bins for cookbooks, and hooks for hanging storage.
Small Kitchens: While a walk-in pantry or pantry closet may not be an option in a smaller space, your general contractor can offer many suggestions on how to add a custom pantry space into your existing design. Tall pantry cabinets can include adjustable, roll-out shelves for a variety of goods. You can put racks on the cabinet doors for spices and smaller items and install deep drawers near the bottom for larger items.
