ADDITIONAL STORAGE SPACE
A pantry room is an excellent addition to any kitchen since it allows you to store all of your kitchen appliances, saucepans, pantry essentials, grocery items, and cookbooks. The size of the shelves in a pantry increases storage capacity and allows for the storage of dozens of items.
With your exceptional organizational skills, you can now organize all of your food products into rows and columns. Consider categorizing groceries, oils, spices, and appliances in one column and unrefrigerated items in the other. Arranging your pantry essentials will help you save money as you'll know what food is available so you don’t accidentally purchase more.
A pantry room is not only an ample space, but it is also very convenient for keeping all of your items in one place. Its features such as drawers, shelves, and dividers allow you to easily reach the item, resulting in easy accessibility. If you have a pantry cabinet right beside your refrigerator, you won't have to run down to your basement every time to fetch kitchen supplies, which will indeed save you time and energy.
Though pantry rooms are beneficial, adding an extra room to the house will incur additional costs for homeowners. The cost may run into thousands of dollars to install walls, shelves, carpentry expenses, wiring expenses, lighting fixtures, storage jars, baskets, and other unexpected expenses.
Secondary storage is always nice, but so does more space combined with more shelves means more cleanliness and organization are required. Certain efforts and cleaning supplies are required to upkeep your pantry from dirt, dust, and pests.
REQUIRES EXTRA SPACE
When building a new home, an extra storage room is always considered, and a pantry room will take up the majority of the space. If you have a small kitchen, a pantry will just make no sense as it will leave no space for appliances and other kitchen essentials.
