What would be a good color for a pantry?

I want to paint my pantry, what color would be best. It is a part of my kitchen, and my kitchen is very neutral. Should I just paint it white again? I would love to paint it a different color. We are trying to sell our house so I need something that is neutral as well. Thanks in advance.

  • I would sugest white because it just makes everything look nice and clean and it helps make things easier to see.
    If you are wanting color other than white I would choose a kaki color.

  • I think a bright color because you can see things better in the back spaces!

  • If you are trying to sell your house, paint it either white or the same color as your kitchen. If you're just doing it for you, I'd say go bold with a Navy blue or a deep maroon. Make those pantry items live in luxury! :)

  • I painted one wall in my pantry with chalkboard paint. It's a good place for lists and messages. It's out of the way too. I think if the rest of your kitchen is neutral it might be nice to add a surprising pop of color in your pantry.

  • The same color as your kitchen. As well, I very much agree with another post. That if you have a blank wall or a door on the pantry then pain it with Chalkboard paint. That way they can write grocery lists or notes to family on it.
