Because the kitchen is such a widely used area, I want it to be just right for our new home. All forms of storage, like the kitchen pantry, is a pretty important part in the makeup of a kitchen. And, while corner pantries seem to be the traditional go-to option for storage… I didn’t necessarily want to go that route. There are so many different types of pantries, it’s important to take them all into consideration and decide what is best for the type of kitchen you have or want.
Kitchen Pantry Extravaganza
Wall Pantry – First up, this wall pantry is hidden by beautiful wooden barn doors that cover its contents. If you don’t have a ton of room to open cupboards and doors, sliding doors are a great option. They also serve as an element of decor that is appealing.
Freestanding Pantry – This freestanding pantry is a great choice if you are renting, or if you want something that can be moved around. Sometimes kitchens can be built with surprisingly little cupboard space, so this is a perfect option to hold food or kitchen appliances or dishes. And the decorator in me has to mention, these freestanding pantries are nice for adding color as well.
Mini Built In Pantry – This mini built in pantry is a nice storage space that isn’t directly in the kitchen, but close enough that you can still grab items when needed. Great for storing dishes or seasonal items. Source unlisted.
Open Shelf Pantry – Also, this unique open shelved wall pantry is arranged beautifully by Ella Claire. If you love the open shelf look, this is a cute and creative way to add storage. Use them for food, dishes, or decor.
Butler’s Pantry – I love this pantry. This provides a room directly off the kitchen that is partially hidden from guests, allowing for a ton of storage. It’s very visually appealing too which is a nice bonus! Isn’t that ladder fun?
Butler’s Pantry – I also had to include this gorgeous butler’s pantry that is large and spacious. Believe it or not, a butler’s pantry like this one can be pretty handy for holding appliances so you don’t have to use up counter space in your kitchen.
Built In Pantry – And, I had to include my built in farmhouse pantry. So this used to be a long wall of folding doors, but the kitchen pantry space didn’t really suit what we needed. I converted it to this desk and built in pantry space with an ice maker and drink fridge. It really helped to open up our kitchen! See the complete project on my farmhouse pantry here.
