Smarten up your kitchen storage with a fancy pantry
In the days before fridges, nearly all homes had a larder, but today it’s something of a luxury. And while few of us can afford the space for a walk-in pantry, sales of standalone pantries are on the rise.
The Return Of Larder Cupboards
We don’t talk about larders very much nowadays. The traditional larder — a small, cool storage room used to keep foods fresh — has long been replaced by modern refrigeration. But larder love is still out there, only this time it’s more commonly seen in the form of a larder cupboard: A larder cupboard is a standalone unit that’s a cross between a kitchen cupboard and storage room. You might call it a “wardrobe for food,” as Homes and Antiques puts it.
