The New Focus on Pantries

House of Silver Lining

What could once be arguably the most overlooked room in the house has had a resurgence in popularity in recent years. The Pantry or Butler’s Pantry used to be a place to store non-perishable food items and maybe an odd small appliance or unused set of dishes. Today, the pantry has become a focal point in our home and may include a wet bar, laundry facility or coffee bar. They are as chic as they are functional and integrate seamlessly into the decor of our home.

When designing your pantry, there are a number of elements to consider.

  1. What will the space be used for? Is it strictly storage for food items or will it be a multi-functional space?
  2. Do you want a walk-in pantry or one that is integrated into your cabinetry?
  3. Door or no door? Are you neat and organized or would you prefer to be able to close its contents away?
  4. How much real estate do you want your pantry to consume? You will need more space if it will also be used as a laundry or mud room.

A designer can help you to prioritize your needs and determine how much space you have to use. Below are some great examples of how to create a functional and beautiful pantry space.
