The kitchen pantry is known for practicality. Pantries are where you stash non-perishable food, from flour and sugar to cans and munchies. But functionality isn’t the only consideration to make when remodeling the kitchen pantry in your home. Take a cue from our Los Gatos kitchen remodeling project and go for style in addition to practicality.
Creating Custom Pantries
How did our Los Gatos clients add their sense of style to their new kitchen pantry? One big change they made is a decorative door. Instead of using a typical wood door like so many other pantries, they picked out a giant grain design on an opaque window. The glass on the door helps the room feel more open and the design fits naturally with one thing kitchens are known for – food. Feel free to check out Simpson and Trustile Doors for more examples of possible decorative doors for your kitchen pantry.
As many homeowners know, pantries aren’t always known for organization. Despite our best efforts, it can be hard to keep everything neatly stacked in place, especially as multiple family members dig through for whatever it is they’re looking for. In our Los Gatos project, the kitchen pantry’s opaque door keeps the room looking clean and organized by blocking out any disorganization on the shelves. Plus the shelves are adjustable so they can be set for the homeowners specific needs. Once they decide which items they’d like where, the shelves can be set to a height that allows ease of use for storing and using a wide variety of items.
