Kitchen storage is a challenge for many families. In the luxury or upscale home, there’s the additional concern of making sure storage options are aesthetically pleasing and in alignment with the rest of the rest of the kitchen in terms of quality and craftsmanship.
When Does a Pantry Make Sense?
Many of the kitchen design remodeling projects we do on the South Shore include a pantry. Pantries take many forms: multi-room pantries featuring ingredient storage, a canned goods inventory, pan storage, appliance garages and more make sense for the families that do the most entertaining – if you have a prep kitchen, you definitely want a pantry like this. More common: the streamlined single room pantry that features smart shelving, storage for less-often used but still important appliances and baking gear, and space to stow bulk goods purchases.
What we’ve learned during the pandemic: every family, no matter how big or how small, will need to stock up sometimes. We all need sensible storage solutions to keep food on hand for at least a few weeks. Pantries can be very minimal – think built-in cabinetry – or large dedicated spaces that serve multiple functions. Your Plymouth kitchen designer will help you create the one that’s right for your family.
