Not to be mistaken with normal kitchen cabinetry, the pantry is often used as a storage area for dry, or canned, foods that don't require refrigeration or continuous usage. This storage space usually takes on the look of a cupboard filled with food items along with the occasional cleaning tool.

Pantry shelving system is the ubiquitous option when first thinking about how to properly split pantry space into effective and efficient way of storage.

The metallic pantry shelving systems, are often based on open, long, and metallic shelves designed to be easily installed with just a few screws, and therefore are the best option for installation novices. Wooden shelves to the pantry are found in most varieties of organic fibers, including Oak, Pine, Maple, and even Bamboo. These are a bit more challenging to set up, as they require some carpentry skills, but can be customized to match any style of existing kitchen decor.
Plastic units are pre-casted, require no setup, and extend limited personalization. In choosing the right shelves to your own pantry there are several critical components to take into account. First, the quantity of space available will often determine what kind of shelving units are appropriate. Freestanding Cabinet shelves will occupy more space than wall-mounted Cabinet shelving systems, and will also be amazingly weak in their ability to maintain large quantities of weight.
Second, as mentioned before, the total amount of weight that will be asked to be kept will warrant 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. Price is the final, and most significant piece of the puzzle. Wall-mounted Cabinet shelving systems are cheaper than plastic shelving systems, which are, in turn, cheaper than hardwood systems.
