The kitchen is one area of your home where you can really show your style. Open concept kitchens with oversized islands have become very popular, along with walk-in pantries. There isn’t anything real glamorous about pantries; however, a walk-in pantry can play a large part in the overall look and functionality of your kitchen.
Organization has become of utmost importance with all the trends on social media. Walk-in pantries offer plenty of room for food storage. Most people have gone away from pantries that are stuffed to the brim and just thrown in however it comes out of the grocery bag. A large walk-in pantry allows you to organize your food and have it be visually appealing. You can utilize baskets, shelving and even lazy susans, allowing everything you need to be easily accessible. And of course, you will want to label those baskets to keep foods together. Another popular trend is creating snack baskets for your kids so they can see what their daily options are.
Organizing your pantry allows you to know exactly what you have on hand and what you might need to purchase from the grocery store. This saves you money and prevents you from double buying…as long as you remember to take your list! If you prefer to buy in bulk, a large walk-in pantry provides ample space for storage for your non-perishable items.
Another added bonus of a walk-in pantry is it provides a place to store larger kitchen appliances. With all the popular kitchen gadgets such as air fryers, pressure cookers, blenders, smoother makers, and so forth, countertops and cabinets become cluttered rather quickly. Storing these appliances in your walk-in pantry is perfect for clearing off that countertop, but you are still able to access needed appliances with ease.
Now that your countertops are clear, you have more meal prep room and can decorate! Walk-in pantries help contribute to maintaining a beautiful kitchen and adding functionality. A walk-in pantry aids in organizing, meal-planning and cooking.
