Pantry Perfect

Every kitchen want's an excellent pantry, even if it is a tall cabinet with roll out trays, it is better than nothing.  Granted, everyone would love to have a giant walk in pantry with room for the rarely used small appliances, as well as all of the groceries that don't need to be refrigerated.  Even if you can't incorporate that type of space into your kitchen, there is always room for even a small pantry.

This pantry shows what you can do with any unused closet space, or a closet that is intended for a pantry.  By using simple closet shelving, your space can not only be used for storage of unused items, but foods as well.

Available in many sizes, using tall cabinets as a pantry is a great way to maximize space in a smaller kitchen.  Roll out trays also allow you to access items in the back of a deep cabinet easily.

This pantry space was created with simple wire shelving units, which can be purchased at any hardware store, and combined to make not only pantry storage, but additional household storage as well.  

This Mediterranean Kitchen features a pantry that is beautiful and functional.  When the pantry is going to be visible to guests, like this pass through butlers pantry, it is important to have a space that is as beautiful as functional, and makes a statement like the rest of the kitchen.
