Can storage be sexy? For most people it’s an essential but not something to get excited about. Enter the pantry (or the walk in wardrobe, come to that). Oh yeah. If I could type the sound I make when I vibrate my tongue against the roof of my mouth, I’d do it now. You know the one…Eartha Kitt was particularly good at it. I would love to have a pantry and I’m trying to work out how. I have so many bits of kit that I only use occasionally and obscure ingredients tucked away at the back of my shelves. It would be amazing to be able to store everything more prettily and be able to access stuff with ease.
So I’ve been searching Pinterest for my pantry and larder ideas. It didn’t let me down.
Look at this one from Jordan on Oh Happy Day. It’s so pretty (and dare I say it, a little bit sexy too). Tiled walls and ordered shelves make for a good looking space. If we do manage to fit a pantry into our space, we would not have a window on it therefore no natural light.
This pantry found on Remodelista is separated from the main kitchen with glass panels. I think I would want to be able to shut the door and not see the inside of my larder, but I have to admit, this one does look good. I also love the dark kitchen units and shelf brackets.
This sliding door is a good solution to keep the pantry separate from the kitchen. Although I’m not sure I would want a glass door embossed with the word pantry. Found here.
Look how beautifully light and bright this one is. Swoon. Look at all that STORAGE. Found here.
Here’s another space embracing dark colours. I rather like the black wall and tiles.
I have a designer coming round later to discuss my plans. I’m itching to get started on this project, so watch this space. What do you think about pantries? Do you think they are a good use of space, or would you prefer to have a slightly bigger kitchen?
