Walk-in pantry doors
Pantries are a basic space in any home in America. They’re essential to keep food and other goods stored safely and neatly, and they also help keep a more de-cluttered area in the kitchen.
Some pantries can be similar to cabinets or shelving, but if there’s enough space, then a walk-in pantry can be added. The most standard size for a walk-in pantry is somewhere near 5’ x 5’, even larger if there’s room, so a door in a reduced space like a that would need to be around 30”-36”.
- Swing doors
- Pocket doors
- French doors
Traditional swing doors are handy and practical for going in or out the pantry, and they can be made of traditional wood or more high-end steel and glass.
This particular type of door is one that saves space by going into the adjacent wall, which is extremely helpful since pantries tend to be smaller than a regular room.
Some pantries have enough space to have a wider opening and, in this case, placing French doors in the entrance will upgrade the kitchen and make it look even bigger.
Benefits of having a pantry door
Protection for food and cooking items
It's no old news that doors are an insulating item, so it's natural for a pantry door to help keep any goods at a cooler temperature, and lower the risk of humidity spoiling food.
Having a door in your pantry will keep out any wandering toddler or pet from breaking a jar or having a sneaky midnight snack.
Covering up your pantry will avoid any visual clutter or unorganized groceries. By closing up the opening, you instantly make your kitchen look more neat, and more spacious.
