Kitchen Pantries Make Life & Cooking Easier

As an increasing number of homeowners in Colorado spend more time in their homes and rely increasingly on subscription and delivery services for groceries and household goods, pantries have become almost a necessity in a well-designed and functioning dream kitchen.  If there is space, we often recommend a walk-in pantry because first and foremost. A pantry provides added storage space for nonperishable items and more refrigerator space for items that are perishable.

A Place for Everything

Having a place for everything provides several valued benefits to homeowners in the Denver metro area.  A pantry reduces the number of trips you have to make to the grocery store, allows you to buy in bulk when things are on sale or house your online orders. This ensures that you don’t run out of the items you need to prepare your favorite meals regardless of the weather.

Walk-in Pantry or Pull-out Pantry?

A walk-in or even a pull-out pantry provides more flexible space that can be offered by a drawer or cabinet, enabling a kitchen to function more efficiently.  Pantries are the great organizer.  Storing items in clear containers that are labeled ensures that you will never confuse salt with sugar.  We often recommend to homeowners in Colorado to organize their pantries in food group categories such as canned goods with canned goods, spices with spices, pasta with pasta, grains with grains and so on. Coloradans love flavorful foods so you can also organize by ethnicity. All your Italian pastas, sauces and extras in one spot, Mexican food staples such as chilis, beans & peppers in another and Asian food staples together.  Doing so enables Denver homeowners to easily find whatever they need to prepare a meal quickly and easily. Schock makes a narrow pull out pantry that can fit in smaller kitchens.

Appliance Storage

Do you love clean countertops? Pantries also serve as a welcome home for large countertop appliances that are only used occasionally. Think of your stand mixer, air fryer, sandwich press, slow cooker, and similar items, placing them out of site frees up valuable counter space and helps to ensure a modern clean look.  Similarly, the pantry can also house large roasting pans, stock pots, and other cookware items that are only used occasionally, freeing up drawer and cabinet space for items that are relied upon almost daily.

If your current cabinets and drawers are stuffed to the gills, you will truly appreciate the benefits of a walk-in or pull-out pantry.  Pantries can all but eliminate purchasing duplicate items because you did not know that the jar of peanut butter or the box of cavatelli was hidden behind your five-pound bag of flour. Saving money right now is of utmost importance to most households in the Rockies.

Butler’s Pantry

You might even have room for a Butlers Pantry. Butlers Pantries can be any size and often help an awkward space in your home become useable. They also provide storage for items you only need for entertaining but you entertain often so it’s important they are easily accessible.
