  • Inside the pantry? I would go with a light, bright color so that even if your lighting is not great you can still see to find what you are looking for.

    gonna have to go with plain old white. I'd choose a glossy white to help bounce light.

    The lightest color that coordinates with your kitchen colors in a shiny finish (to reflect the most light)

    I always say -- your FAVORITE color! But if your favorite is like mine (bronze and a bit dark! lol) then go with whichever brighter color makes your heart smile. Nothing worse than going into a room that doesnt make you happy. Im a fan of the oceany light aquas and white shelves also. Or if yellow is your sunny place, then yellow walls and white shelves. Just remember -- you know YOU best! Follow your heart! Blessings to you from the Great Pacific Northwest, Lakewood Washington!! stacysarfulheart

    Install a small skylight or solatube. That will bring in natural light. Our pantry is gloss white. Easy to clean.

    Keep it light if it tends to be dark... but you can also add fun touches with colorful contact paper or a contrasting color on backs vs. shelves...

    a light color -- I love light butter yellow in a kitchen! Goes well with blues, greens or even other warm colors.

    my late husband painted the inside of my pantry with a clean crisp ultra white. I never imagined that a simple paint job would brighten things up so much...but thats just what it did. Thank you hubster!

    My personal choice is ultra white in semi gloss. Then I like to measure and apply self adhesive white designed floor tiles on the shelves for easy cleaning. I've done this in every closet, bathroom and kitchen in my home and I love it! It's worth the time and effort. Best of luck.
