A well-stocked pantry needs to be accessible. You can improve your pantry with pull out door accessories and make all items accessible to the whole family. When you combine IKEA accessories, appliances and storage space, the final result is a stunning, yet very functional pantry area:
Why are pullout accessories more convenient for a pantry?
A disorganized kitchen can be very irritating, particularly to the cook. When preparing to make a meal, not being able to find that bottle of oil or the jars with basil and cumin can slow things down.
Now, add to it the stress of having a family of 3, 4 or 5 people waiting! Not to mention the mess that can result if something is tucked way at the back of a shelf and that can in the front falls to the floor and drips. An organized kitchen is a tidy kitchen.
Pantry closets or cabinets, especially those with deep fixed shelves, can be inconvenient when it comes to storing food items. When pantry shelves are very deep, items stored in the back of a fixed shelf are difficult to see and reach. You can overcome this problem by replacing current fixed shelves with pull out door accessories from IKEA.
How does it suit your lifestyle or cooking needs?
Buying in bulk for the kitchen is a cost-saving option that’s used by more and more families up to this date. So, large storage areas are no longer an option, but a necessity.
Improve your pantry with pull out door accessories from IKEA and create the ideal, custom solution to suit your lifestyle. Pull out doors help you to recapture the lost space at the back of each shelf by extending the shelf to put the contents within easy reach.
How much space will you need for this project?
We’ve considered an entire wall for our example but the main pantry pullout accessory from IKEA is only 18″ wide. You can see that we’ve incorporated different items from a kitchen in our example:
- A double oven cabinet
- Some counter space (About 60″)
- Two pantry pull out door accessories
- A large fridge (About 48″)
- Glass doors + horizontal cabinets
As you can see, we’re using larger appliances to show the functionality but the actual pantry area is about 90″, including the counter space. Here are the detailed measurements:
How much will it cost?
Adding the pull out door accessories to your pantry area is fairly affordable, the interior fittings or accessories by themselves are no more than $200. These belong to the AKURUM line and the RATIONELL series from IKEA. You can find them under “high cabinets with pull-out storage” and the basic cabinet style with the pull out door accessory included starts at $264. This is the total calculated cost for the wall we used as an example, including the tall cabinets for appliances, all panels and all base cabinets:
