Engelbertina Neumann. Pantry Cabinets. April 27th , 2020.
If you’re considering installing pantry cabinets, you’ll first want to measure the space in your existing or planned pantry. If you’ve got a large space with room for plenty of cabinets, doors, and pullouts, you’re in luck. It’s more likely that your pantry space is somewhat crowded, which means you’ll need an efficient pantry cabinet plan. This might mean installing shallower shelves and drawers, or a tambour door that will allow for maximum efficiency in your kitchen storage space. Using Wellborn’s YouDrawIt program, it is possible to make your pantry however you want it. Pantry cabinets are essential to any room in the home but in the heart of the home it is a necessity. With pantry cabinets, it’s about functionality and organization.
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?
Rather than adding a full set of cabinets to a wall, consider using a single cabinet (either a built-in or a standalone unit safely anchored to the wall) to create a pantry without filling in a whole wall.
For hundreds of years, pantries have proven themselves protectors of abundance. They are an American design tradition, and their endurance represents our continuity. Inside, well-stocked shelves instill comfort and reassure the well-being of family.
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.
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.
You can also consider using some open cabinets without doors to put everything within immediate reach.
