Such a non-problem, I know, but having a walk-in pantry for the first time is as big a deal as having a mudroom. The issue I’m having is trying to decide what I intend to put IN the pantry.
We don’t shop at Costco for the two of us so it won’t be filled with 100 rolls of paper towels. I DO have lots of pretty china of my own and some I inherited from my mother. I do have a myriad of appliances I don’t use regularly, so I know for sure I want easy access storage for those things, like the KitchenAid Mixer that gets hauled out at Christmas and Thanksgiving. The crockpot. The many coffee makers.
Do I want all covered storage, or mostly open shelves? Do I want the bar sink in there and liquor storage too? Will all the bar glassware go in there or should I carve out a new space in the kitchen for the bar sink and counter? I can do that by making the pantry a tad smaller but if I can put the bar sink in the pantry, I think that would be better served.
Will I put the cereals and pasta boxes in there, and the jars of sauce and rices?
I won’t be putting any microwave or bar refrigerator in the pantry but otherwise, this pantry seems to have both closed and open storage.
The photos above had a hard time uploading and for whatever reason seem to think they are ONE photo, IOW in trying to edit the photo from Sapia Builders, it deleted that whole bock of pix. I get it, it’s Monday!
Like the mudroom, I’ll likely wait until the physical space of the pantry is in place before eying what will fit and what’s too much to fit in.
My mom had a linen pantry, drawers with large spools in it for big linen tablecloths to be rolled for storage. Talk about a dream. I’m old enough that I have lots of linen tablecloths, many I inherited from my grandmother!! They get folded in tissue paper and kept in a cabinet.
Happy Monday. The storm last night was amazing. California child called early to say they got much needed rain for the first time in months. Here, I think we’ve had our fill.
