Keep Your Kitchen Tidy By Having A Walk In Pantry
A walk in pantry is a perfect addition to your kitchen as it stores all your kitchen needs, while keeping clutter to a minimum. However, before you decide to build a walk in pantry, there are several things to consider. Careful measurement of existing space will make your pantry work efficiently and prevent it from blocking other necessary kitchen traffic. A walk-in pantry does not have to be closed off, but if you choose doors, have them open out, rather than in, to make retrieving and carrying items easy. Measuring the sweep of the door can help you choose between a single door, double doors or folding ones. Look at your planned location in other spatial terms as well. The most spacious location for your pantry may be in a hallway, on a stair landing, or in the garage.
Some renovators suggest that you choose a style of shelving very early in your planning, factoring shelf heights and depths into your calculations of space. Looking at prefabricated shelving options can also give you new storage ideas. Pre-made storage equipment includes wall racks, sliding or adjustable shelves, drawers, moveable bins, and free-standing shelves. Then, putting something safely away goes sour when it then becomes hard to find. Plan lighting when you design your walk in pantry, just as you would for any other room. Providing electrical outlets is also easy in the building phase and more difficult to retro-fit.
