Winola Ziegler. Pantry Cabinets. April 27th , 2020.
Kitchen pantry design and organization requires a personalized approach — budget, size and aesthetic depend on what you need. What is your pantry right now: a compilation of shelves or a walk-in closet? How much space do you have to remodel and renovate? What is the storage used for and how do you want it optimized?
This can create a beautiful accent in the room, contrasting other cabinets a bit and becoming a focal point rather than just a functional piece of storage.
Sometimes planning the storage in your home can be a matter of prioritizing. A space used for a closet near the kitchen can be handy for storing coats and boots or cleaning supplies, but converting this space into a pantry with many shelves and drawers may be the better option for your needs.
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.
Candie and Steven Tramonte had one of those little L-shaped, reach-in pantries – nothing to brag about, but it served a purpose. Boxed and canned goods and everyday kitchen staples lined its shelves.
Although kitchen staff is a rarity now, the butler’s pantry still functions like its namesake, organizing serving trays, glassware, ice, wine, and other beverages for large parties and fulfilling guests’ needs.
One major benefit of a butler’s pantry, says designer Jim Balcom of Crown Point Cabinetry, is that drinks can be served outside the realm of a cook’s busy workspace. For a traditional butler’s pantry in a New Jersey home, Balcom designed custom cabinets, finished in creamy white milk paint. Visible from the kitchen via an arched opening, the pantry’s craftsmanship is very much on display.
