Space Lift: Multi-Function Pantry

One of the newest trends in kitchen design is no upper cabinets. Aesthetically – we LOVE this, but practically – it can be a challenge. Our very own Lauren Combs (NEAT Method Detroit) created a multi-function pantry in her home that makes you wonder if uppers are even necessary at all.

Take a look at this pantry and see what makes it so functional and NEAT!

City :: Detroit, MI

Organizer :: Lauren Combs

Designer :: Maison Birmingham

Photographer :: Boswell Creative

Room :: Pantry

Hours to complete :: 6 Hours

Objective :: Without any upper cabinets, this pantry needed to act as cabinet space for glasses, mugs, a few hidden appliances and an efficient food pantry!

Lauren’s favorite feature :: The coffee station is not only functional, but a highlight of the space. The doors look pretty both open and clossed because of the design and product choices. The plan came together well – we used every inch of space and maintained a minimal clean look.

Stand out product :: The baskets chosen blend perfectly with the graphite colored doors and interior walnut of the cabinets creating a beautiful and complete design.

    Lauren is a super STAR! Her minimalist/transitional style creates a peaceful vibe. I’m still using the tips she taught me when she Styled our closet! A very gifted gal.
