If you have a nearby island to act as prep space, losing a little counter may be well worth the trade-off.
If the converted space is large enough — and especially if you can route in water lines for a sink — the new pantry can also work as a prep station for a second chef.
Assessing cooking and entertaining habits, collections, and bulk storage needs is a vital step toward achieving a pantry that harmonizes with the hum of a household. Whether it functions in full view or obscurity, attention to detail can affect not only its appearance, but also its practicality. A pantry that keeps foodstuffs safe, collections secure, and users well fed successfully fulfills its historic legacy.
Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.
Glassware is stored in the upper cabinet, where two glass-fronted doors have eight individual panes of glass each. Below, an attractive counter of quarter-sawn white oak tops a base of drawers, which organizes silverware and placemats. Crown Point’s Newport doors, marked by a quarter-round bead that frames flat panels, grace a pair of side cabinets: one is customized with individual dowels for linen storage, and the other contains shelves.
The design of your pantry should focus on visibility. Smaller items, like bottles and spice containers, could be on a rotating table or on a door rack. If you have the space, you could install a lazy susan or a riser shelf. You can also reinstall shelving for easy reach if they’re too high, so feel free to do it yourself or hire a cabinet professional to help you.
Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, crafts varying pantry styles, many of which assimilate into kitchen cabinetry without the need for a standalone room, says President George Achey. Options include a narrow slide-out drawer for spices, a wider drawer for cans and spices, and a walk-in corner pantry unit that extends 36 inches from the corner. If space allows, the company also crafts comprehensive butler’s pantries, typically with mullioned window cabinets above and drawer storage below.
