Customized kitchen pantry





Materials: Akurum high cabinet, Pax Komplement drawers

Description: When we renovated the kitchen, we chose this high cabinet from Ikea because it’s wide enough for the microwave but for storage it is terrible. It is too deep and has two big drawers which are again too deep. If you put a can in a drawer you can only see the top of the can! I like organizing but I wasn’t about to label all the top of my cans!!!

The solution? Ikea’s drawers for the Pax wardrobe system. We bought two big ones and my boyfriend cut them to fit the pantry. Voila! Nice sliding, solid wood drawers and not too high.

    I love your kitchen table!

  7. Also a hack! The legs were from an old table. I repainted them and changed laminated top for a piece of Ikea butcher counter.

    Very pretty, thought i would go crazy if all of my food was in drawers. I prefer to be able to see everything on shelves.

  9. I understand, I would of loved a walk-in pantry.

    Why didn’t you buy specific Rationell drawers similar to the ones you have below, but which are for inside use? They fit straight to Ikea kitchen cabinets and have better mechanisms.

  11. To anonymous,
    Because this cabinet is 30″. Ikea doesn’t have basket that size. The mechanism of the Pax drawers are very stable.
