Four Factors to Consider When Designing a Walk In Pantry

Have you been dreaming of a spacious and functional walk in pantry for your new kitchen?  There are many benefits to having a walk in pantry, including a large and easily accessible storage for your groceries and everyday household essentials.  As a home remodeling contractor in Orlando, we help our clients design the best, functional, and efficient storage solutions for their walk in pantry and kitchens.  There are four main factors to consider when you set out to design the perfect walk in pantry for your new kitchen.

Storage Needs

When you plan storage solutions for your walk in pantry, you first want to do inventory on the items you plan to store.  You can install shelving units that offer a range of heights so you can keep both large items, like mixers and soup pots, in your pantry, while also installing baskets that help keep cans and other small groceries organized.   Your contractor will work with you to meet all of your storage needs.


When you plan your walk in pantry, make sure that you think about lighting options.  Use both an overhead light fixture to illuminate the entire pantry and smaller LED lights to see individual shelves.  You will want to view items that are lower in the pantry or farther back on the shelves.  Consider using a sensor.  Imagine how convenient it will be to open your pantry door and immediately have a light turn on so you don't have to worry about flicking the switch yourself.  Then, it will turn off when you close the door.  This is one convenient way to also help curb energy costs over time.


When you are designing your walk in pantry, make sure that you choose quality materials.  You may think you can save money by using big box retail Do-It-Yourself kits, but you should avoid this mistake.  By choosing quality materials and working with your home remodeling contractor in Orlando, you will save yourself time and money on repairs.   Quality materials will not only look consistent with the rest of your kitchen renovation, it will also last-longer and work more efficiently.  


You also need to think about how you will easily access high shelves, deep bins, or corner storage.  Solutions range from installing a pull out step or a library ladder.  If you are looking to access high shelves, you will certainly need a customized special feature to help make everyday life a little bit easier.  The last thing you want to do is leave a step ladder cluttering up the corner of your beautifully designed, brand new pantry.  

Whenever you are designing your new walk in pantry, these are a few factors to consider.  By working with a home remodeling contractor in Orlando, you will have the expertise to help guide you to choose the most quality materials and the best storage solutions for your kitchen renovation budget and needs.  Contact us today to get started on the pantry of your dreams.
