Spacious Pantry Behind Barn Doors
Weathered-oak pantry doors stand out against the refined details in this country kitchen.
A fully stocked pantry makes meal planning, shopping, and cooking a much more pleasurable experience. For many, a separate walk-in pantry is ideal, but a well-organized smaller storage space for cooking and baking supplies can work equally well. Opening the sliding barn-style doors of the 96-in.-high by 14-in.-deep pantry that runs along one wall of this 16-ft. by 20-ft. kitchen reveals plenty of storage for kitchen staples, all within easy view and reach of the cook. Closed, the rough-hewn oak pantry doors with painted accents complement the painted cabinetry with oak details and bronze/ antique-brass hardware. Black granite countertops, black steel rolling barn-door-style hardware, and unlacquered brass light fixtures with milk-glass shades add the finishing touches to this warm and welcoming space.
