A kitchen pantry is a very traditional concept in homes in India and abroad, where members of joint families had to be catered to by teams of kitchen staff, or ladies in the family. This meant stocking large quantities of staples and grocery, for which spacious pantries were required. Food, bread, condiments, sweets were mainly homemade, and that too needed space. Now switch to our modern times, and you see our urban centres faced with the paucity of space. A basic home is so compact, that the idea of a kitchen pantry is unrealistic. However, with proper planning, and space saving ideas, a kitchen pantry that enhances efficiency, can be carved out.
Remodelling an old pantry with smart alterations, or creating a new one out of a space you tend to overlook, here are some attractive kitchen pantry ideas that are inspirational. A place for every item, stocked in an organised manner can help diffuse stress and bring out the ‘Chef’ in you.
A great way to stay organized is to add chalkboards to your pantry doors! Jot down a grocery list and what needs replenishing, or use it as a meal planner. Convenient and can be rewritten with every change happening in your dynamic kitchen space.
Labelling the jars, cannisters and bottles is the best way to go. Reach out for what you need and when you need without groping.
An empty distressed crate can be painted afresh and put in the space below the shelves. A crate fitted with wheels can operated with ease. Stuff all the extra bits that do not go on the shelves.
Pot lids tend to get mixed up, especially when you are looking for the right size. Stacking them in racks on the inside of a door gives a clear indication of what size to look for, while ‘pottering’ around in the kitchen! This arrangement takes care of a clutter-free look.
Keep all your choicest of daily use items close at hand. Again, a vertical spice rack built on the inside surface of the pantry door, is very convenient for a hassle-free kitchen experience. Other essentials can be stored towards the bottom half, if they are used infrequently.
Tall, white (read dark) and handsome, this sleek pantry placed into a limited wall space. All items fitted into the entire height of this compact pantry. Packs in quite a bit.
Who would have thought of eking out a pull-out storage where the fridge almost meets the wall? That’s a great idea no one really thinks of. Well-worth trying. Spice jars and cans can easily be kept here and pushed out of view with the drawer closing. A little more space and a more voluminous pull-out storage can be accommodated. Vertically stacked goodies, take up less space here. A chalkboard fixed to the outer surface is a help with keeping track of groceries and meal planning.
A rustic barn door to close out your pantry is a substantial statement to make for your kitchen interior. The slate-coloured tiles add to the bucolic charm. Under the stairs is a clever use of space for a pantry. Behind the heavy barn door, who would know of an existence of a pantry, where extra dry goods can be stored for a longer time.
Easy to put together is an Ikea kitchen concept. The pantry can be customised, with each element ordered to suit one’s convenience. Install, and start storing. Everything is adjustable. Nothing could be easier.
These hanging shelves under the main shelves are versatile and can add space where required with no effort at all. Make full use of the pantry space, at a pinch. Economical too.
A pantry made to look like a library with the step ladder to help reach the higher shelves. Like a library – with shelving full of books. Done in white, with panelling at the back, neatly arranged shelves – all create an elegant look with a vintage feel.
A well-organised pantry, with everything in place. A mix of drawers and shelves adds versatility. Cook books take up a shelf or two for quick references and tips.
These are shelves that look like trays are hardy, yet they can be pulled out and put back with remarkable ease. Equipped with wheels on channels, accessing all your needs at the quickest possible time is now made easy.
For a country-house feel, fill up an empty wall with wooden shelves and see the space for storage grow manyfold. A pantry right in the kitchen offers great convenience. The dark wood looks good next to the beautiful wooden flooring.
A new look can easily be injected into an old pantry by just changing or adding gleaming white tiles. This adds glow, reflects light and gives a fresh clean look. Paint old shelves with a white shiny coat. All this makes the space look larger. Clear jars add to the brightness.
Create a pantry by using an old armoire or an old-fashioned wardrobe. Keep it original, give it distressed look, or paint it to match the kitchen colour scheme! The colour of the wood adds warmth, the piece is spacious and can accommodate shelves with depth, wire baskets loaded with essentials and stocks. All this is easily hidden away behind the doors that keeps the clutter, away from view. With a large kitchen, this idea is worth a try.
These ideas can be tried and adapted very easily into your interior plan for a kitchen pantry. Cooking becomes a pleasure and the pantry adds a nice décor element, reflecting your taste.
