Jeld-Wen has a new idea for a pantry door

Every new construction project I get involved with anymore involves the inclusion of a walk-in pantry. I swear, walk-in pantries are the new trophy car. Time and again though the question comes up about what do to with the door on the new walk-in pantry.

Jeld-Wen has been making windows and doors for the last 50 years. Now Jeld-Wen has a new pantry door that just might work in a number of these walk in pantries.

They've managed to come up with a design that whispers pantry. It's a type treatment that looks fantastic and upon further inspection consists of a number of home spun recipes. The recipes range from apple pie to espresso biscotti and it's a clever design.

Jeld-Wen's new pantry door is available in nine species of wood, so it will match the millwork used in any home. If you'd like more information about Jeld-Wen's doors and windows, check out their website here.


  1. We have a walk-in pantry but ours is original to the old house and also has one of those butler's cabinets. Gene proposed knocking it out to make the kitchen and dining room one big space, but I can't imagine functioning without it now. I also hate to do anything that destroys original parts of the house too. I had no idea they were in such demand these days.

  2. Oh yeah they're popular. I haven't seen a new construction house without one in the last seven or eight years. Enjoy your original!

  3. That would be a really great idea if I could have it printed with my favourite recipes so I didn't have to look them up..

  4. Hah -- I have a "walk-in pantry" (imagine that, in my simple little home): a corner of the garage! The previous owners sheetrocked it in and added a door; the original door between the kitchen and now-pantry is a hideous peeling psychotic orange and I'd love to replace it with the one you show here. As for matching the "millwork," um, I'll get back to you on that.

  5. Oh, and I forgot to add that my "pantry" is perfect for storing onions and winter squash because it's not insulated, yet is also NOT the smelly messy greasy garage. Aside from the awesome extra storage, that's my favorite aspect and I'm not sure a modern pantry would offer that.

  6. Nim: That sounds like a DIY project to me. How are you at etching glass?

    Anna: You'd be surprised. A step in pantry that's inside protects things like onions and squash from temperature extremes and things tend to last longer.

  7. Jeld wen has doors that will match and design or style that is needed to match the decor of your home. A pantry door is no problem. It's great how easy it is to build in energy savings into your home while making your home warm and beautiful. Using jeld-wen energy windows and doors is a really easy way to do this. It is a good idea to research all your options before making a choice and beginning to replace what you currently have. McGraw Hill's Sweet Directory of construction products and manufacturers is a great place to start. They have a lot of important information on Jeld-Wen Windows and doors, as well as the other options out there. Though I work for them, I use them all the time and they have helped me plan out a number of home improvement projects. I highly recommend them.
