With sliding pantry shelves, gone are the days of shuffling food to reach the one ingredient you need at the back of the pantry. These gliding shelves from the ShelfGenie Classic Series are made of eco-friendly Baltic birch wood and can hold up to 100 pounds when fully extended.
White french door cabinets open up to reveal wood shelves and sliding wood drawers for an organized and easily accessible pantry. Built in stainless steel refrigerators frame the pantry for a sleek contemporary look.
In the laundry room, what was once a utility closet is now a useful pantry. Pull-out drawers and wire baskets add to the pantry's functionality. The original swinging door was replaced with a barn-style sliding one, which takes up less room in the smaller space.
Behind sliding doors, the pantry is a welcome feature in this modern, open plan kitchen. A large island with a waterfall countertop offers an additional place to dine, with four plus barstools to host the entire family.
Barn doors don't intrude on floor space and make for an attractive pantry opening. The sliding doors reveal horseshoe shaped floating shelves with a natural wood look giving it a country design vibe. The shelf design leaves items easily accessible and visible.
The cleaner your look, the less likely it is to go out of fashion. This kitchen from Jan Goldman, owner of renovation and design firm Kitchen Elements, minimizes hardware with custom-designed pantries and drawers that are flush with the wall; the china hutch in the middle features simple sliding glass doors.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers Anthony and John created a separate bar area just off the kitchen. To delineate the two spaces, designers used bold, blue cabinets and a gray countertop, creating visual separation from the adjoining kitchen space. Then, they added a three dimensional backsplash and two long shelves for storage. A final bit of decorative flair is added with the sliding barn door that matches the one concealing the pantry.
