Kitchen Pantry Wire Shelf Idea
Take Off A Door & Put In a Pantry Wire Shelf?
Who does that? Me! We took off the pantry door and used a pantry wire shelf mounted to the wall to increase storage space and room. I previously had been using a door hanging pantry wire shelf and I did like that option, but we have such a small space between our counter and wall to get into our pantry. We also keep a trashcan in that space. So.. I decided to have Dave take off the door (we kept it open all the time anyway) and we mounted a wire shelf on the wall to add to our pantry space.
These shelves were just a little deeper than my door mounted shelves. So we were able to put the 2 liter bottles of pop and larger cans of soup on them, where we weren’t able to with the door mount. My little green bucket I attached, that is where we keep all our chip clips.
Here is what we had previously. This over the door pantry wire shelf was helpful, but didn’t give me as many shelves to work with and they weren’t as deep. But if you like to close the door to your pantry, this is still a great option to increase your space.
I was considering having Dave build me shelves on the wall, and we saw this when we were in Home Depot and decided it would work. I’m really happy with it.
Of course we still have the door, so that if we decide to move or change our minds, we can always take this back off the wall and put the pantry door back on.
It’s ok to think a little outside the box with your home. We don’t always have to stay within what we think is “socially acceptable”. I’m one who tends to be much more practical and would rather have options that work for my family and are functional, rather than trying to impress the masses with my picture perfect home.
