The modern pantry has made a huge comeback over the years in kitchen design with the aesthetic but practical element, really coming into its own. Offering a storage area for food, jars and appliances, and ranging from a walk in pantry to a smaller cupboard area, the possibilities are endless. But the benefits of a breakfast pantry are throwing a whole new dimension to kitchens and you may wonder how you ever lived without one. Imagine a designated area just for breakfast, with everything in one place, tidy, accessible and beautifully crafted, creating a design statement second to none.
A breakfast pantry can really store everything you need to hand, ranging from appliances like a coffee machine or toaster, and surrounded by all your accessories like plates, knives, spoons, cups etc, which are instantly accessible, but also neatly tucked away should you so wish. Just shut the doors and the kitchen is clutter free and tidy when breakfast is over.
Always a necessity in a busy kitchen, storage is at the top of our list. Creating bespoke places for pull out racks, shelving and drawers is a design feature of the breakfast pantry. Door racks can provide extra storage for tea, coffee and biscuits, all shut away behind closing doors, offering additional benefits of a breakfast pantry.
Work free surfaces
Concealing toasters, blenders and coffee machines is not the only primary function of a breakfast pantry. Whilst a breakfast pantry is one of the most practical additions to the kitchen for keeping an organised and clutter-free space, it can also be a workstation in its own right. This enables clutter free work surfaces, which leaves more space for everyday living and entertaining.
The open shelves and increased storage space of a breakfast pantry can prevent you from forgetting items that usually lurk at the back of the cupboard, enabling you to check stock levels and use-by dates quickly, saving wastage due to spoiling. Also the visually appealing aspect can prompt you to decant dry goods, encouraging recycling, refilling and more mindful food purchases whilst using the beautiful glass jars, worthy of leaving any cabinet door open.
Your eye catching but practical breakfast pantry won’t be complete without the finishing touches. Consider your choice of handles which can accentuate your cabinet with a modern, traditional or contemporary feel. Lighting is also an important addition, with LEDs an option for task lighting as they produce a bright light without heat, keeping the food within at the right temperature. And also not to forget, installing electrical points for your appliances is a must.
