Wire Pantry Storage Systems - Modern pantries have evolved from the "batteries" of the old West, and now have a wide variety of shelving options available to homeowners. Not to be confused with normal kitchen cabinetry, the pantry is often utilized as a storage area for dry, or canned, foods which don't require refrigeration or continuous usage. This storage area generally takes on the look of a closet filled with food items along with the occasional cleaning tool. However, it is the manipulation and design of space which allows each container to be unique, as well as hold varying amounts of food things. Pantry shelving system is the ubiquitous choice when first considering how to correctly split pantry space into efficient and effective way of storage.
Many home purchases come with pantries that already have some type of cabinet shelving system in place, but what exactly does a homeowner do if they would like to replace them, to make it more efficient and accessible? Well, the answer is found in any multitude of home improvement and furniture stores in your area. Pantry shelving units are found in national chain stores in only about every material imaginable. The most popular options include wire shelving, pre-made wooden units, and plastic shelving systems.
The metallic cabinet shelving systems, are usually based on long, open, and metallic shelves made to be easily installed with just a few screws, and are the smartest choice for installation novices. Wooden shelves for the pantry are found in all varieties of organic fibers, including Oak, Pine, Maple, as well as Bamboo. These are a bit more difficult to set up, as they require some carpentry skills, but may be customized to fit any style of present kitchen decoration.
Plastic units are pre-casted, require no setup, and offer limited personalization. In selecting the most appropriate shelves for your own pantry there are several important factors to take into account. To begin with, the amount of space available will often determine what kind of shelving units will be appropriate. Freestanding Cabinet shelves will occupy much more room than wall-mounted Cabinet shelving systems, and will also be amazingly weak in their capacity to maintain large amounts of weight.
Second, as mentioned before, the total amount of weight which will be required to be held will justify which type of pantry shelves to buy. 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 closing, and most significant piece of the puzzle. Wall-mounted Cabinet shelving systems are less expensive than plastic shelving systems, which are, in turn, cheaper than hardwood systems.
