Kitchen pantries are no longer a place for doing laundry. The laundry room is moving closer to the bedrooms of the house and the pantry is becoming the hub of kitchen extras and essentials.
There are several pantry trends that go far beyond wastebasket pullout. There are built in wine storage for your favorite reds and whites, floating shelves to display your grandmother's treasured flour and sugar canisters, and hidden storage drawers and shelving that hold your most used items and those that are hard to reach. Even the countertops can be made into heavy-duty pull out shelving to hold the blender, toaster, or coffee machine which makes it easier than ever to use these appliances and to keep them cleaner and well used.
The pantry has taken on many new forms and the right designer can help you find a fit that works with the layout of your home and works with your individual performance needs. You may have space for a walk-in pantry the size of a guestroom or a closet, or you may be looking for a built-in, pull-out, or freestanding unit. Today, the design of your pantry is limited only by your imagination.
