The central purpose of this delightful pantry is storage of and easy access to the items in the kitchen. The Diamond Cabinets were designed by MasterBrand with the focus on beauty and function. Contained in this room is the food storage, dishes and china, glassware, and crystal, with some displayed and most stored in the pullout shelves and drawers.
The décor of the room was inspired by the collections of the homeowner. The antique rolling pins and wooden cheese boxes and bread boards anchor the cottage look. The color chosen for the cabinets is Diamond Cabinet’s “Seal.” Its vintage hue blends beautifully with the modern granite and stainless-steel farm sink by Kohler yet gives a cozy cottage look to the room. Surrounding yourself with things you love is always a great starting point for decorating.
The old-fashioned plate racks allow ample display area for plates that are changed seasonally. Other cherished items find perfect spots on the display shelves. The modern conveniences of pullout drawers and slide-out shelves add to the cleverness of this design. Amerock cabinet hardware was selected because of the charming antique finish. The oversized pulls are easy to use and add a vintage look to the room. The corner pullout drawers are the perfect place for storing fragile china plates, and the spinning food storage racks in the long cabinets maximize the space while keeping things organized.
