Let’s face it, most of our entertaining is done somewhere near the kitchen. Where there is good food, people will gather. Kitchens are the souls of our homes, having a unique and beautiful layout while keeping practicality in mind can increase your home’s value significantly. One of the first places people look before buying a home is the kitchen! Since the 1990’s one of the most sought-after amenities in a kitchen is a pantry with ample storage space. Having a well-designed pantry in your kitchen will aid you in keeping your home tidier and more presentable as well as having plenty of space to store all that yummy food! No matter what size kitchen you have to work with, there is a pantry for you! Today, Abco Design & Remodeling will lay out some of the most popular kitchen pantry design options available today, starting with the best space savers for small kitchens!
What is a Pull Out Pantry?
This is the perfect option for those who don’t require much storage space in more compact kitchens. These pantries are usually located next to the refrigerator and slide in and out conveniently for quick, easy access. The tall pullout pantry allows you to keep your food in close proximity by consolidating your dry goods and cold-food storage in one convenient location. When the pantry is slid out, it will reveal long, narrow shelves that offer a lot of storage in a compact space.
How Do You Build a Pantry in a Small Kitchen?
If you have big dreams, but the space provided in your kitchen just won’t fit that walk-in pantry you’ve always dreamed of, don’t fret. The built-in cabinet pantry may be just the thing for you. These come in a variety of sizes, from small 2-foot-high pantries to floor-to-ceiling cabinetry with deep cupboards that can be uniquely designed to cater to fit you needs, interests and match the layout of your kitchen. Want to see what’s inside at all times? Add windows to the cabinet doors for an open effect. Want to hide the pantry? We can design the cabinet doors to match the rest of your kitchen cabinets for a hidden storage area that your guests will never even know is there. You won’t have to go searching through multiple cabinets to find what you’re looking for anymore, it can all be located in one convenient space-saving place!
Is a Walk In Pantry Worth It?
Conveniently located behind a closed door, you won’t have to worry about your guests seeing this pantry! These are one of the larger pantry options, but they can be sized to fit your kitchen. These come with ample storage space for dry goods, wine, table linens, small appliances and china or spare dishes! Shallow pantry shelves help you to keep your pantry organized by offering the ease of viewing all your stored food items without losing them on the back of the shelf! The floor to ceiling storage is great for homes that store a lot of food, or for those who would like to start a food storage for emergency use! There is even space to store your cleaning materials, vacuums, mops, brooms etc.
What is in a Butler’s Pantry?
Also known as a serving pantry, these are the largest of the pantry options available and are reserved for the largest of kitchens in homes that may host copious gatherings. In modern homes, these pantries are generally located in the transitional space between kitchen and dining areas. They come equipped with ample storage space to store all of your dry goods, kitchen appliances, tableware and linens, china, ice makers, coffee makers, cleaning supplies etc. If you plan to use your butler’s pantry for food prep, counter space and a prep sink are a must in this space. Let your heart be your guide as you can design this space anyway you see fit.
