Engelbertina Neumann. Pantry Cabinets. April 22nd , 2020.
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.
You should also organize your pantry with older items in front and newer items in the back. That way you won’t have to worry about opening a new package and then have the added issue of spices expiring or drying out.
Cabinet depth plays an important role in a food pantry. Vitzthum prefers one side lined with deep cabinets, and narrower storage, about eight inches deep, along remaining walls. “Eight inches of depth is typical, particularly above waist level,” she says. “You don’t want to have more than two cans in a row on a shelf. Things get lost in the back. Unused dead space would be better served by more maneuvering room.
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.
Pantry accessories can keep you organized once you’ve decided on what kind of pantry you want whether it be; shelf dividers, pullout drawers, wire racks for produce, spice racks, and erasable labels to put on the doors for easy identification. With the right Wellborn pantry, your kitchen will be organized in no time.
If you enhance the interior, why not make your exterior look brand new as well? If you have a walk-in pantry, you might repaint the door to hide any scratch marks or other wear after years of use. With a pantry cabinet, you have the option of resurfacing, refinishing or painting, depending on whether it’s made from wood, metal or plastic.
If you have a nearby island to act as prep space, losing a little counter may be well worth the trade-off.
