The photo above shows the area behind my kitchen table -- should I add open shelving, or perhaps hire a contractor to build some sort of pantry -- maybe with cute glass doors or a sliding barn door?

Adding Extra Pantry Storage to a Kitchen
I have a small rectangular (almost galley) kitchen. The kitchen has a small amount of cabinetry and no pantry! I added a china cabinet to my kitchen to store extra dishes, etc. But now I could use storage space for the snacks my kids like to eat and baking essentials like sugar and flour.
Currently I keep about three canisters on the kitchen table to hold my kids' snacks. I would love to have a clear table again!
There is space on either side of the china cabinet -- one side ends at the refrigerator (which has white cabinets above), with the far end meeting perpendicularly with a window. I was wondering if I should perhaps add open shelves for the canisters, or if I should get a contractor to add a closet (maybe with sliding barn doors) on one side or both sides of the china cabinet.
My kitchen is open on one end (the part that is in the foreground of the photo) to my home's family room.
Would love suggestions!
I recently painted my kitchen cabinets white -- they are to the left of the fridge.
