7 Ways to Create Open Pantry Space

In my opinion, one of the most contentious kitchen design ideas in recent years has to be open shelving. Some people love the way open shelves break up the wall and showcase pottery, art or a nice set of dishes. Others detest the extra dusting, and the potential for clutter, that open shelves involve.

Yet an open pantry can work really well for cooks who like to have ingredients and small appliances at arm’s length yet still appreciate a stylish kitchen. Here are seven examples of pantries that are fully open, mess-free and actually look good. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to add one in your next remodel; it may be as simple as just removing a door.
