All About Walk-In Pantries

If you are considering a redesign in your kitchen, this presents an ideal time to evaluate the entire space of the room. The kitchen is a hub in your home, and you want to ensure you are getting the most out of its function as well as its appearance.

You may currently have cabinets in your kitchen, but you might be surprised to learn the advantages of adding a pantry to this room. Orbe Construction, a home improvement company serving customers throughout Maryland, outlines what you can expect if you build a walk-in pantry in your kitchen.

Consider Your Kitchen Space

Does your kitchen feel crowded? If you are having trouble accessing your countertops due to low-hanging cabinets, you should reconsider the way fixtures are assembled in your space. Building a pantry – a closet-like space where you can store food or other items in your kitchen – can leave you more room to navigate your counters than some types of cabinetries would.

Not every kitchen will have enough floor space for a pantry, though if you have an existing linen closet or other similar fixture, this could be an ideal storage option for your home. You can consult with a general contractor to determine the optimal areas where you can add a pantry to your kitchen.

Prioritize Storage in Your Kitchen

When remodeling your kitchen, you should factor in how many items you would like to keep in the room and how you intend to store them. Are your existing cabinets capable of holding the crockery and food items that you hope to store?

If you build a pantry in your kitchen, you can create multiple shelves of varying heights where you can keep the items you desire. A walk-in pantry can mean that you have even more storage opportunities as well as the option to shut a door or close a curtain to keep the area separate from the rest of the kitchen. These are all good characteristics to keep in mind during your remodeling project.

Style and Aesthetic Options

Building a pantry in your kitchen does not necessarily mean that you have to get rid of your existing cabinets. Cabinetry can be an excellent way to add your sense of style to the room.

Your pantry can help you express your ideal aesthetic as well. With additional and separate storage in a pantry, you can have more space to mold your kitchen to your preferred style. You can also keep less aesthetically appealing items out of sight in a pantry.
