Perfect Pantries According to LiLu


There are so many ways to build pantry storage into your kitchen. What type is right for you? It depends on a lot of factors! How big is your family? How often do you cook? Are you an average chef or a creative culinary genius? Will you store only food, or does your pantry need to do double duty and store large kitchen items such as crock pots or over-sized pans? How much space do you have in your kitchen overall? If it's small, you might have to get crafty with storage.
A well designed pantry is a big part of how well a kitchen functions. Check out some of the pantry solutions we have designed in the past for our clients.

Built-in Cabinetry Pantry

If you've got the space for large floor to ceiling cabinets, these function very well as a pantry. And it looks nice and clean, blending in with the rest of the kitchen cabinetry. The cabinet interiors can be outfitted with specialty inserts tailored to you!

Pull-out Pantry

For those with very limited space, a pull out pantry (or several) is a good way to go. It's super organized, everything has its place, and it utilizes space at the back of a cabinet that would otherwise be difficult to reach.

Hidden Walk-in Pantry

Can't find the pantry in this picture? That's because it is cleverly disguised. These clients had room for a walk in pantry, but we didn't want to simply put a drywall framed door in the middle of the kitchen. We treated the door to the walk in pantry like a cabinet door to create continuity with the kitchen cabinets. Have you found it yet? It's to the left of the refrigerator!

Butler's Pantry

If you've got room for a butler's pantry, the possibilities are endless! Whatever auxiliary functions you need can be built into this space. Here we built in another refrigerator, a command center/office, and tons of pantry storage.
