Pocket doors with shelving - Are the shelves on the far right anchored to the wall at all? I'm wondering because it seems like the screws would get in the way of the pocket door and either scratch it up or keep it from opening all the way. »
what is the time to do this job and a very rough estimate of the work - closet in my kitchen that looks to roughly about the size of your pic, I am interest in getting something just like your picture but if possible would really appreciate a very rough estimate to do the job, and the turnaround time. Also to have the outlet installed would I be the one to get an electrician/ Please any and all information would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you »
Is there any electrical outlets within? Location of the Kitchen? - I like the use of a butler's pantry, along with using this space for food prep. it would be nice to have power to use the small appliances, and to have a sink for clean up. »
Pantry Shelves - I love this pantry... where did you purchase the curved corner shelves? My pantry is 48" wide x 24" deep. I would ask for design assistance but I am in Minnesota. Still would like to know where to buy the shelving. Thanks! »
I am renovating a loft into a bedroom, and will share a common wall with next door neighbor, nice people who also may see movies or TV. How do I best insure that there will be no noise. At present - there is only a cinderblock wall between us. What do I have to add and how? They would also be willing to add on their side also. thanks »
Do you think this beautiful and functional pantry would be possible to build and still look great and be functional if it was only 36 inches deep? I have a small, u-shaped, 12 x 12 kitchen and hate to encroach into the room any more than necessary. But, I do love this piece. I wouldn't need any DRAWERS! »
i have a small L-shaped kitchen, next to a small bathroom. I need to open both up and create wheelchair accessible spaces. Everything needs to be accessed from a sitting height and roll under. Also, funds are very limited, so inexpensive ideas would be very much appreciated. Thank you. »
This is not some persnickity matchy-matchy Martha Stewart arrangement of copper pans and the like, yet it is equally pleasing. It's a great example of how a closet/pantry organization company and/or kitchen designer can help you out in the long run.
If you assumed our most popular photo would be a heavily styled, professionally-polished space, it's not so. Would you believe that this pantry has been added to more ideabooks than any other photo? Sometimes practicality wins above all else.
I cannot think of a more perfect place for pocket doors than the kitchen! Hide that pantry mess (although this one is quite tidy) behind elegant pocket doors without losing a shred of precious floor space.
1. Provide easy access. I hear from clients all the time about how frustrating it is to lose things in the back of their pantries. Or how when they're cleaning it out, they find something from the late '70s. Create an opening to your pantry that allows you to see the entire pantry at the same time.
Organize the pantry. Step up and face the demon: the pantry. Take a Saturday to go through everything, get rid of what you haven’t touched in years and restock what’s left in an organized fashion. More: The Top 20 Kitchens of 2011
A shelf in the pantry. Placing these appliances in a dedicated space in a pantry will work, especially if the pantry is well thought out and organized. A pair of pocket doors provides ample access and turns the pantry into what it should be: an extension of the kitchen.
