30 Wide Kitchen Pantry Cabinet - Modern pantries have evolved from the "batteries" of the old West, and finally have a wide range of shelving options available to homeowners. Not to be mistaken with normal kitchen cabinetry, the pantry is often used as a storage space for dry, or canned, foods which don't require refrigeration or continuous use. This storage area usually takes on the appearance of a cupboard full of food items along with the occasional cleaning tool. However, it's the design and manipulation of space which allows each container to be unique, in addition to hold varying amounts of food items. Pantry shelving system is the ubiquitous choice when first thinking about how to correctly divide pantry space into efficient and effective means of storage.
Many home purchases come with pantries that already have some sort of pantry shelving system set up, but what does a homeowner do if they would like to replace these, to make it more accessible and efficient? Well, the answer is located in any variety of home improvement and furniture stores locally. Pantry shelving units can be located in nationwide chain stores in just about every material imaginable. The most well-known choices include wire shelving, pre-made wooden units, and vinyl shelving systems.
Items such as corner shelves, door shelving units, and pull-out, or sliding, pantry cabinets. The metallic pantry shelving systems, are usually based on open, long, and metallic shelves made to be easily installed with just a few screws, and therefore are the best option for installation novices. Wooden shelves for the pantry can be found in all forms of natural fibers, such as Oak, Pine, Maple, as well as Bamboo. These are a little more challenging to set up, as they require some carpentry skills, but can be customized to match any style of existing kitchen decoration.
Plastic units are pre-casted, require no installation, and offer limited personalization. In selecting the most appropriate shelves for your own pantry there are several critical factors to take into account. First, the amount of space available will often determine what sort of shelving units will be appropriate. Freestanding pantry shelves will occupy much more space than wall-mounted pantry shelving systems, and will also be surprisingly weak in their ability to hold considerable amounts of weight.
Second, as mentioned before, the total amount of weight which will be required to be kept will justify which sort of pantry shelves to purchase. Wall-mounted systems are usually directly connected to wall studs by screws and are consequently often stronger and less likely to bend. Cost is the final, and most significant piece of the puzzle. Wall-mounted pantry shelving systems are less expensive than plastic shelving systems, which are, in turn, cheaper than wooden systems.
