Would you believe me if I told you that taking space away can actually make a room feel bigger? This is exactly what happened at the #raspberryhillhouse. After taking down walls and cabinets in the kitchen, we were left with a huge amount of space. Instead of using up all of that space for the kitchen, we decided to create a small pantry area in what used to be a breakfast nook…because who doesn’t appreciate more storage? Before renovating, the nook had an old-fashioned look including, dark brown wainscoting on the walls, worn flooring, and an outdated light fixture…we’re talking full granny house style.
To create the pantry area, we put up a wall to separate the two rooms and replaced the existing windows with a skinny window. On the walls, we used reclaimed wooden shelves, styled with adorable blue jars and other kitchen accessories. We also added in a butcher block countertop and small sitting area, the perfect place to make your grocery list and meal plan for the week.
The finished look of this pantry is fresh, clean, and inviting. With the addition of shelves, countertops and walls, you are left with plenty of storage space, no more shoving food and small appliances into cupboards. This room is definitely #pantrygoals, I would maybe just live in there!
