Create the illusion of more space by blending a small pantry door with surrounding walls. Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath replaced a traditional six-panel door with a flat door and painted it the same color as the wall. By adding baseboard and shoe molding to the door and installing a touch latch similar to those used airplane cockpit doors, the pantry disappears into the wall.
Do you buy your spices in bulk? You might prefer hanging them for a whimsical display. Repurpose a small window treatment rod or use this

Amy’s French vintage pantry, maybe the most functional space of all, is truly a dream. It’s filled with vintage copper (Amy’s been collecting for years!) sourced mostly from France. Some of the newer pieces are from Sertodo Copper, a coppersmith based in Mexico that Amy loves. Cheeseboards, cake stands (of course) and tea kettles are stacked throughout this inspiring space. We’re ready for brie and wine now!
