To clear up a clutter conundrum, you have to start with the hub of the household—the kitchen. And if you are looking to make any upgrade, a pantry is just the thing to get your kitchen on track. According to a recent “Home of the Future” study by the National Association of Home Builders, 94% of designers, builders and other industry experts surveyed rated a walk-in pantry as a critical amenity in high-end homes. But built-ins aren’t the only way to get organized. Reach-in, freestanding, portable, swing-out, wall-mount, pull-out—modern day pantries come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Pantries can even be created by mixing repurposed furniture, mobile decorative drawers and storage accessories that can also lend a sense of customization.
So clear off the cluttered counters, un-stuff the cabinets and rediscover the pantry with this gallery of designs.
