Pantry Makeover: The Vision

The pantry makeover is well underway but I realize I haven’t shared my vision for the space! That’s mostly because I hadn’t finalized it until very recently, but now it’s where I’m happy and want to share!

I’ve read comments saying my ‘before’ was already a dream pantry and think it’s worth mentioning again that the before WAS such a great pantry! I was so thankful for it, coming from a home with the tiniest ‘pantry’ ever. We used to use cabinets as our pantry! But after almost 8 years in this home with a huge pantry, and countless amounts of time spent trying to organizing just to have it back to a disaster again, I want to create a more functional space for our family. Bigger doesn’t always mean better. And also, this is MY dream house. 😉

I knew I wanted lots of drawers, closed upper cabinets to hide boxed foods and some open storage for things like pasta, grains, etc.

I found a ton of inspiration on Pinterest and created a Pinterest board with some pantry’s I love, and then started sketching up plans by hand. I actually drew up FOUR plans before committing to one, then designed it in SketchUp, tweaking it until I was happy. And this is what I came up with! I created different Phases to show how I’d be installing/building everything.

The space is approx 7’x9.5” with 12’ ceilings.

SketchUp is such a great tool to help visualize a space- I’ve found it easiest to use on my iPad and this is the tutorial that helped me the most in learning how to use it!

Next I’ll be sharing the demo & Phase I install process!

What tile is this?

Where did you get the railings for the shelves? And all the handles in general?

What made you choose this corner piece? I have the same type of pantry when it comes to size but it’s a horseshoe shape so I will have two corners and I cannot settle on how I want to approach the corners.
