Creating your own unique storage space The first step is deciding if you want a pantry, larder, or both. A larder is typically a large walk-in closet that can store dry goods such as sugar, flour, pasta, cereal, and other nonperishables. A pantry is usually smaller but still offers ample storage for canned goods such as vegetables and fruit. Next comes creating the design plan.
