Blue and White Curtain Adds Pattern and Color to Small Pantry
Replace boring pantry doors with an attractive curtain instead. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to add style and minimize clutter. If your kitchen already has a lot of patterns, then opt for a calm, neutral fabric. But if your space is minimally decorated, choose something with a little more color and flair, like this pantry curtain installed by Clay Snider Interiors for Dwell with Dignity to create soothing homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty.
Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry in a medium oak finish and natural Silestone countertops prove a perfect pair in the butler's pantry of HGTV Dream Home 2010, conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen. Sand-colored tile and counter surfaces paired with undermount lighting keep the small workspace bright and airy despite lack of natural sunlight.
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.
Talk about functionality. In addition to being sleek and stylish, this high design kitchen and butler’s pantry from Harrison Design with Design Galleria offers a stunning veined marble farmhouse sink and ample space for behind-the-scenes prep to keep the main kitchen mess- and clutter-free.
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.
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.

The butler's pantry off the kitchen houses the homeowners' collection of dishes. A built-in desk provides an extra workspace, while open shelves above are the perfect spot to display pottery. Exposed wood beams and a stone backsplash add rustic style to the space.
