Rubbermaid Pantry Rack - Modern pantries have evolved from the "batteries" of the old West, and now have a vast variety of shelving options available to homeowners. Not to be mistaken with normal kitchen cabinetry, the pantry is often used as a storage area for dry, or canned, foods which do not need refrigeration or constant use. This storage area usually takes on the appearance of a closet full of food items and the occasional cleaning instrument. But, it's the manipulation and design of space which allows each pantry to be unique, as well as hold varying quantities of food items. Pantry shelving system is the omnipresent choice when first thinking about how to correctly divide pantry space into effective and efficient way of storage.
Many home purchases come with pantries that currently have some type of pantry shelving system in place, but what does a homeowner do if they would like to replace them, to make it more accessible and efficient? Well, the answer can be found in any multitude of home improvement and furniture shops in your area. Pantry shelving units are found in national chain stores in only about every fabric imaginable. The most well-known options contain wire shelving, pre-made wooden units, and plastic shelving systems.
Items like corner shelves, door shelving units, and pull-out, or sliding, pantry cabinets. The metal pantry shelving systems, are usually based on open, long, and metal shelves designed to be easily installed with only a few screws, and are the smartest choice for installation beginners. Wooden shelves to the pantry are seen in most varieties of natural fibers, such as Oak, Pine, Maple, as well as Bamboo. These are a bit more difficult to install, as they need some carpentry skills, but can be personalized to fit any style of existing kitchen decor.
Plastic units are pre-casted, need no installation, and offer limited personalization. In choosing the right shelves to your own pantry there are several important 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 much more room than wall-mounted Cabinet shelving systems, and will also be surprisingly weak in their capacity to maintain large quantities of weight.
Secondly, as mentioned before, the total amount of weight which will be asked to be kept will justify which sort of pantry shelves to purchase. Cost is the final, and most significant part of the puzzle. Wall-mounted Cabinet shelving systems are less expensive than plastic shelving systems, which can be, consequently, cheaper than wooden systems.
