What are the dimensions of your pantry? Love the little desk area. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to The Shelf Project
This is another great example of how to organize books for maximum visual impact - I love the way the colors are grouped. Plus, great narrow shelves!
Here is another great example of displaying books in the kitchen. Many older houses have small built-in shelves like these which may not be suitable to storing other items but are perfect for keeping books. In this example, the books are separated by color so that you get a beautiful aesthetic effect for the area.

Ah, Le Creuset. My own lime green Dutch oven sits out on my stove all the time. I love it. These white pots look beautiful, too.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Steps for Organizing Kitchen Cabinets
Kit Pollard added this to Books in the Kitchen
I like the way this space makes the most of a kitchen corner - a desk in the kitchen offers a perfect spot for a laptop (which, along with the books, is how I find recipes). I also like the idea of using pretty boxes and baskets to store pamphlet-style cookbooks.
Lily Gahagan added this to Designs for Living: The Perfect Pantry
If you have the space, a spot to sit and plan a menu is most helpful. This one is near ingredients and a few shelves of cookbooks (cleverly arranged by color, I might add) to provide inspiration for your meal.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Love Your Kitchen More, Right Now
9. Keep a well-stocked pantry. From dried grains, pastas and beans to special condiments and long-lasting root vegetables, a thoughtfully kept pantry is key to pulling together delicious, healthy meals at a moment's notice.
