While making plans to prepare large meals and entertain friends and family, we started peering into other people’s pantries around the web for storage and organization ideas we could incorporate. One of the first things we noticed is how few homes have a pantry, especially homes built after the mid- to late 1950s. Yet, as you can see from this wonderful photo taken by Andrea McKay, there’s a certain charm and utility that surrounds the whole notion of pantries, which is probably why builders are reporting they have become one of the most requested features in new homes.
In homes without pantries, finding space for one poses a challenge. And, even if you’re lucky enough to have a pantry, maximizing its storage potential takes planning. Take a peek into a few of these pantries and you may see some ideas to help with storage and organization around your kitchen.
