The renovated kitchen is barely recognizable as the same space. The more open floor plan is brightened further with a white and gray palette, stainless appliances, new tile backsplash and floating shelves.
Shelves, pullout baskets and shallow drawers will ensure your pantry offers a place for everything and keeps everything in its place. "Even small closets can be converted into orderly and spacious walk-in pantries. It's about making the best use of the space you have," says Rozalia Kiss, design manager of transFORM.
Usually found in commercial kitchens to house everything from bulk foods to appliances, the InterMetro Kitchen Shelves from The Container Store will lend an industrial appeal to your pantry. Whether you store these steel shelves inside a closet or out, you'll have plenty of space for all your pantry staples. Each shelf supports up to 300 pounds and is adjustable.
Basic white shelves are a perfect platform for showcasing a beautifully curated collection of toys, art, even a houseplant. The fact that enough space is left between items to really see them keeps the wall from feeling cluttered.
