The existing butler's pantry in this 1980s home was divided into a new butler's pantry and this dry pantry. The dry pantry maximizes storage space off the kitchen, offering room for food and dishes alike.
Pullout pantry racks are a smart place to store canned goods, dry goods and fruits and vegetables, while still providing greater visibility and ease of access. "Your home and pantry should enhance your lifestyle, whether you are hosting friends or cooking dinner for the family," says Rozalia Kiss, design manager of transFORM.
Storage Dilemma: You would love a walk-in pantry in your kitchen for storing dry goods, but don’t have the space. Solution: A tall slide-out pantry cabinet open on both sides is a great alternative. It gives you an easy way to store your dry goods in a small footprint, and allows you to track your supplies – which eliminates waste and helps save money on your food bill.

Open pantry racks are a smart place to store canned goods, dry goods, and fruits and vegetables, while still providing greater visibility and ease of access. Installing a unit with adjustable shelves, like in this pantry, allows you to customize the shelf height to fit your storage needs.
The pantry in this space is equipped with everything staffers could need to heat up their cold lunch. Plates and bowls are easily accessible from their open wood shelving. A large sink with built-in drying rack provides a place for quick cleanup; a microwave and refrigerator are present for reheating and storing leftovers. All these modern features fit within the pantry's rustic design, featuring an antique clamp that is attached to the countertop and another 20th Century portrait hanging to the side of the space.
When open, it's easy to see just how much storage this custom cabinetry provides. With room for a broom closet, dry goods and plenty of items that once resided in the basement, this cabinet proves it is spacious enough to handle it all.
The back wall of the walk-in pantry has a wall-mounted rack with space for cannisters of assorted dry goods. Adding labels to the cannisters makes it easy to quickly find ingredients when making nightly dinner or a special occasion meal.
