For many homeowners in the Indianapolis area, kitchen storage space is often lacking. This is especially true if your home is older and wasn’t designed with the modern storage solutions that are now available. If you find that your cupboards are overflowing and you’re in danger of falling cans every time you open the doors, it may be time to think about building a pantry in your kitchen. Our team at Booher Remodeling Company can help!

How to Add a Pantry to Your Kitchen

Within Existing Cabinets

Your pantry options will depend on the amount of space you have, your budget, and your storage needs. Installing a pantry amid your other cabinets is one option. Some houses have a half wall separating the dining room from the kitchen. By having a pantry built into the wall, a kitchen remodeling expert can creatively make this area usable. These pantries typically have 24-inch-deep cabinets with pull-out drawers for storing canned or packaged items.

Borrowing Space

Another option for a pantry is to dedicate an entire room to it. Perhaps you can break through the wall and incorporate the space from a seldom-used closet on the opposite side into the kitchen. It’s perfect if you already have a room that’s empty for this purpose, but if not, you can always build a small addition to your house to make this space. This area can be combined to create a room with multiple uses, such as a pantry and a laundry room or a pantry and a closet. These kinds of pantries frequently have floor-to-ceiling shelving with lots of room to organize items as needed.

Special Features

If you have the space, consider adding some special features to your pantry to make entertaining much easier and enjoyable. Some pantries are quite elaborate, including microwaves, wine coolers, warming ovens, and even refrigerators. Whether you love hosting parties or you just need space for your everyday cooking, your new pantry will be sure to serve you well.
