Examples of good designs for a closet pantry include the storage-by-the-door pantry, the tiny pantry, the perfectly imperfect pantry and DIY canned storage pantry available on The Kitchn. Other pantry design ideas include the glass door pantry, the hallway pantry and the library-inspired pantry.
The storage-by-the-door pantry uses shallow shelves to fill a wall by the door of the pantry with condiments and other cooking supplies. Typically, entryways to closets have unused wall space next to the door, making them ideal for placing some extra storage space.
The tiny pantry is ideal for narrow or inconvenient closets space near a kitchen. Installing a glass door helps to identify the pantry contents from outside. The perfectly imperfect pantry is a closet pantry that makes use of vertical space in a way that is common to many closet conversions. The DIY canned storage pantry uses pull-out shelves to make use of extra space in an efficient manner.
The glass door pantry uses opaque glass doors and interior lighting to complement the entire kitchen. The hallway pantry makes use of a hallway alcove closet for space, and the library-inspired pantry uses the same organizational shelving found in libraries to hold condiments, spices and other food supplies. For the best results, combine the library-inspired pantry with actual bookshelves to complete the image.
