8 Super Hardworking Kitchen Pantry Ideas to Get Inspired By
A must-have for every kitchen, the kitchen pantry is a flexible superstar that provides a catchall for everything from your everyday appliances and wares to your dried herbs and canned foods. Ranging from stylish tall-boy units to space-saving corner shelves, here are some of our favourite kitchen pantries we found in Singapore homes.
1. Walk-in Pantry
Here is one for those with ample space within their kitchen. An area by the corner was set aside for a walk-in kitchen pantry. The insides were lined only with open shelves so that everything can be displayed out for ease of access. No forgotten box of cereal will be happening here.

2. Get Outside
If you want a walk-in pantry, but don’t have the room for it in your cooking space, consider moving your kitchen pantry outside. This one sits just outside the kitchen and is created with different sized shelf compartments to accommodate things of different heights. We like that this built-in isn’t just used as a pantry, it also doubles as living room storage on the other side.

3. Pull-Out Perfection
Tall and lean yet full of depth, this pull-out pantry was designed to maximise storage without taking a whole lot of square footage. It is a perfect solution for small kitchens. The pull-out function also means you won’t have to spend a lot of time digging around your cabinet to find what you need.

4. By the Corner
Things can get awkward fast with corner kitchen cabinets. Not only are they dark and hard to access, they also tend to be difficult to design and build. Here’s the solution: turn it into a mini walk-in pantry so you can just walk in to reach for what you need.

5. Out of Sight
Because the kitchen pantry is a catchall for anything and everything in your kitchen, things can get a bit messy inside. Going for a closed cabinet pantry is a great option to hide the clutter. Opt for various types of compartments depending on what you need. Shallow cubbies are great for storing delicate wares, while slide-out shelves are great for spices and cooking oils. For heavier items like your pots and pans, get deep drawers that can take the weight.

6. Country Roads
To keep things organised, store all your pantry staples in containers of a similar design. This kitchen pantry located on the uppers of this country themed kitchen features the essentials stored in clearly labelled enamel tins, adhering to the rustic farmhouse vibe of the space.

7. Pocket Full
This hardworking kitchen pantry is located in the dry kitchen area. The coffee machine hides behind the cabinet pocket door, which appears just like an ordinary cabinet front when closed. But when opened, it can slide into itself, ensuring no bump elbows even in a narrow space.

8. Don’t Go All Fancy
Sometimes, all you need is a series of wooden ledges on an empty wall to create a kitchen pantry. Not only is this not expensive to do, it is also incredibly easy to DIY yourself. Place wider gaps between the shelves if you’re accommodating taller appliances.
