My Pantry and Office Share A Room

12K Views
My office and pantry share a small space, and it's important to stay organized so that both areas will work efficiently. In order to have more countertop space in the office portion, we installed this little bucket organization system from a big box store. This little addition helps the whole room work more efficiently.

Because I cleared up some counter space, there is now room for the printer to sit in a corner of the office portion. When the office starts drifting over into the office area, things start getting crazy.

One-fourth of the room is devoted to the office, and the rest is for the pantry. Those cabinet doors hide my cake and pie pans. The canisters you see there are made from old crocks. The open shelves hold the Keurig coffee maker, the bread machine, and cooking magazines.

I have a nice long countertop, and this is where I prepare cakes, cookies, and pies, before taking them to the adjacent kitchen to bake in the oven. This countertop is laminate for easy clean-up. The kitchen has Carrara marble counters and is high maintenance. There is a small sink for convenience.

The pantry portion also has open shelving.

This great pegboard on the wall keeps the pots and pan within easy reach and takes advantage of a wall that would otherwise be wasted space.

    Looks great. You are lucky to have a large pantry. If you ever wanted to add a craft area the peg board would come in very handy.

    Didn't Julia Child keep her pots and pans on a pegboard?
