Hardworking Pantries

Pantries are fashionable again. No longer dark, stuffy little rooms where nonperishables are hidden away, pantries have become eminently practical storage and work spaces located next to kitchens or dining areas. Accoutrements include everything from refrigerators to gardening stations, depending upon your needs. It's even a fine spot to hide that extra dishwasher. Let's take a peek.

Beyond basic beige

Sound simple? You bet. To add eye appeal to a beige room, start at the top. Introduce an interesting shape at the upper wall-- below the crown molding or above the windows. Old or reproduction iron construction stars are a stand-out when silhouetted against white walls. But any kind of architectural fragment or even a painted-on stencil would work as well. Now inch down the walls and bring nubby or rough-wood texture to the windows. Bamboo shades, woven-wood blinds, or wooden shutters provide a nice counterpoint to the room's soft seating.

Solid-Surface Windowsill

Karen and Tom Tobler lived for years with a dark kitchen in their Leawood, Kansas, home. Not much sunlight made it through a window above the sink, and dark blue laminate countertops and brown tile back-splashes further dimmed the scene. "The one thing we really needed to do was remove the old double-hung window and put in much larger windows," Tom says.

Dressy Driveways

Even up close, it's tough to tell that this Des Moines, Iowa, driveway is paved with asphalt, not with brick. Using templates as large as 6x12 feet, an asphalt contractor applied a pattern to warm, newly laid pavement. The surface was then sprayed with a colored sealer and brushed with a roller that removes excess material from grout lines and creates a skidresistant texture.
