If you are planning to open up more space in the kitchen it is a good idea to makeover the pantry. That storage space for odds and ends in the kitchen can totally make or break the feel you want to create in the space. Gone are the days when the pantry used to be stuck away in some half forgotten corner. Today kitchens are styled with Pantry Storage Ideas that range from simple and elegant to designer and stylish. You can find many creative uses for the pantry storage area that make the most of the available space.
If you think there is not much space to keep a pantry in your kitchen, take a look around. There will always be a corner that’s unused, or an empty space in the wall. You can easily have a vertically designed pantry in this space. In some small kitchens the lower area where the cooking is done can be too cluttered. Build the pantry area on the walls, with wooden storage spaces for all your everyday kitchen items. Depending on your preference you can have covered areas, or go for closed style pantry storage cabinets. For a functional design try a mix of open and closed pantry storage ideas in your kitchen. You can also throw in a few wire racks to display lightweight crockery or food packets beside the bigger solid pantry in your kitchen. Glass coverings for wooden pantry cupboards are great to keep the dust and flies out. Here are some cool pantry storage ideas for a modern kitchen.
