Handmade Day Pantry

A handmade day pantry is becoming increasingly popular in today’s kitchens and a loving element for all the family to share. It’s a handy spot to keep all of the cooking ingredients in one place and create a multi-functional kitchen that is loved for many years to come. Keep it stocked up with all your cooking ingredients and organise it in a nice and easy way that’s beneficial to all the family.

The pantry is named after the Latin word “panis”, meaning “bread”. The pantry in the late Middle Ages was where bread was kept and food preparation was done. Large houses and estates in Britain throughout the Victorian times maintained separate rooms that were dedicated to food prep. Today the pantry is very much modern, where it’s a cupboard built within the kitchen design that is charming and useful for all the cooking ingredients as well as certain appliances. They are perfect for the kitchen and changes the way a busy family works and lives out of the kitchen.

Below is our Hatfield Broad Oak project where the unique space tells of an individual kitchen that is truly bespoke to our client, with separate pieces of furniture and an inviting colour scheme. To the far side sits a gorgeous day pantry complete with many shelves, drawers and spice racks. Our client has organised this in the best possible way with all the groceries lined up and easy to see and reach. A luxury quartz worktop makes up the cold-shelf and Armac Martin handles finish off the solid wooden drawers to hide away those treats.

This kitchen unit also sits on its own perfectly underneath the triangular window.

Storage baskets fill up this luxury bespoke day pantry in Clayhall, London. They become very handy places to store dry goods and baked goodies. Three handy drawers have been built inside too with an easy pull to store other essentials that will be easily selected for the mid-week meal. Spice racks are also included on the inside of the doors. This bespoke unit has been made within the other kitchen cabinets to provide the ultimate multi-functioning room and hand-painted in Little Greene Royal Navy Blue.

Bi-fold doors open up this day pantry in Golders Green, Barnet. It surrounds the large American fridge/freezer and offers a place for everything. Designed in our classic shaker style and a high attention to detail that makes this kitchen lovingly crafted. There are two pantries within this unit, a day pantry on the left and a breakfast pantry on the right. Filled with artisan shelving and spice racks it makes the look important just as much as the function of it. It also made the perfect home for the additional appliances that our client didn’t want on show.

A separate day pantry sits in this historic property which has been made measure to the size of the room and low ceilings. Filled with storage jars and containers this pantry is neatly organised to our clients preference. This has been designed in our traditional shaker style and is the perfect fit for this home in Ongar, Essex.

Next to the grand Sub-Zero refrigeration system sits a large full-height pull-out larder in this home in Henham, Essex. Easy to see the contents and select that ingredient for the perfect dish. This kitchen is located in a new-build property designed to the exact specifications of our clients. The solid oak beams draw your eye to various features within the kitchen and this pantry does just that.

This Scandinavian style kitchen in Upminster, Essex features a unique day pantry full of shelves, compact drawers and spice racks. It’s right next to the fridge/freezer for easy access throughout the day whether you are in the kitchen or lounge/dining area. It has been designed in our classic shaker style and hand-painted in Elephant’s Breath by Farrow & Ball.

A day pantry is a great addition to add an effective design in the hub of the home. Sometimes storing food in the kitchen is often overlooked, so we have designed the day pantry to add storage solutions and a cupboard that is multi-functional to the whole family.
