What Houzz contributors are saying:
Rather than adding an actual cabinet, you can convert a closet into a pantry by adding a variety of shelves or drawers to allow for storage of smaller items. Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.Find kitchen drawer organizers
9. Walk-in pantry. A kitchen with a walk-in pantry gets high marks on most folks’ dream lists. You just need to have the room. In lieu of a true walk-in, some kitchens have a closet that’s often poorly designed with scores of fixed shelves that don’t fit larger items, while space is wasted by disorganized smaller items. A professional closet designer or kitchen designer can help optimize your storage capacity and flexibility if you’re redoing or adding a pantry during a kitchen remodel.The stunning pantry in this longtime popular photo on Houzz features a bevy of built-ins and pullout baskets, overhead lighting and an electrical outlet for small appliances. Generously sized at about 40 inches deep and 108 inches wide, the pantry can be closed off from the kitchen with the aid of two pocket doors. Cost: Designer Marie Newton of Closets Redefined says the cost of this large pantry project totaled about $5,500.See 11 ways to wake up a walk-in pantry
Lower your standards. We Houzzers love our pretty pictures, and there is a tender ache reserved for beautifully organized spaces. Show me a pantry with containers neatly labeled, and you have my heart. The day my house burned down, seemingly out of nowhere my arm shot in the air, and I shouted, “We’re getting a walk-in pantry!” Everyone attributed that to shock, but I was absolutely clear, and today I do have a walk-in pantry with shelves floor to ceiling. I love it. Is it swoonworthy? No. Does it store a ton of food, extra serving pieces, cleaning supplies and small appliances? Definitely, and it’s organized enough.
