A relatively inexpensive fix to add more storage and keep items separate and within easy reach, freestanding pantries are the perfect alternative to built-in pantry cabinets and closets, and they come in a variety of options. Units range from those with just a few shelves to large pieces of furniture that cover entire walls. You can pick one up at any store that sells home and kitchen accessories, or even find a used one that'll work well in your kitchen. Just be sure to measure the space where you plan to put it so you know for sure it will fit when you get it home.

Deciding what type of material you want your freestanding pantry to be made of and what your budget is for it will also make it easier to choose the one that is right for you. Freestanding pantries with wire shelves work well for organizing canned and dried goods, as well as pots and pans, and small appliances. The wire material makes everything easy to see and gives your kitchen a clean, contemporary look. Stainless steel freestanding pantries also have an air of professionalism and efficiency.

A wooden shelving unit is also a good option, as it has the tone and style of something more classic and traditional. Wooden units often look more like furniture and give your kitchen a homier feel.

Plastic pantry units are an inexpensive option if you're on a tight budget and simply want something functional you can put together easily. They can be bought at discount retail stores and snap together in a variety of sizes.

Choosing an armoire or bookcase for your freestanding pantry is an interesting new take on a classic piece of furniture. It can stand against a wall and give your kitchen character and warmth. This type of furniture can be bought new or you can have some fun scouring yard sales and thrift stores for something you can restore.

Rollout drawers and shelves can easily be added to most freestanding pantries for a more customized look. Other accessories like spice racks, dividers, lazy Susans, see-through storage containers, baskets and bins are smart additions to organize your pantry with your own personal style.
