Built In Pantry Cabinets

For additional food storage that does not take up additional floor space, a built in pantry is a great solution. It is installed to blend in with kitchen cabinetry or appliances and can be an attractive place to store dry and canned goods, spice jars, etc. There are many different styles, so you can find one to fit your style of kitchen or cabinetry.

Many different styles mean that this type of storage can be customized to meet your specific needs. Some homes may need taller shelves with a few shorter ones for small cans. If there are many cooking oils, cereal boxes and other tall things to store, taller shelving will be ideal. This is a great addition if you are considering remodeling your kitchen or replacing cabinetry. You can easily dedicate a section of wall space next to a refrigerator or stove, for additional food storage that provides easy access and is handy while cooking.

Even if you are not changing your kitchen or remodeling, you can use a particular space more efficiently, by building one of these units. If you cabinets end several inches from the end of a wall, there is a perfect place for this type of storage. For those who are not handy, many carpenters can install this type of unit within a few hours.

Some pantry cabinets can serve as storage and as display cabinets all in one. There are styles that can make use of lower shelves with doors for dry and canned foods, while the upper units are made into wine racks or kitchen canister sets. Alternative, upper units can be used as display cabinets, for glasses, china and other attractive items. You can be as creative as you want in installing one of these units. If you are looking for one of these places to add to your kitchen, go to a remodeling store or call a carpenter to get an idea of what can be done and the cost.
