We are blessed with a ton of storage space in the kitchen, more than we actually use and need really. I ripped out the only liner in the pantry a couple months ago and just wiped it down and now I'm considering lining it because I've been inspired by this picture some colorful paper. The pantry has double doors but I usually keep it open. Our cuboards are not lined and have never been. I'm in major nesting mode and ready to tackle the kitchen, and my only dilema at the moment is to line, or not line the pantry and cuboards.

I lined my cupboards in my old house, old kitchen (before we had remodeled it) out of necessity. I wouldn't do it again if not necessary because it it nearly impossible to get the lining right to the exact edge of the cupboards and little crumbs, pieces of dirt, etc like to find their way into that groove. It is harder to clean that groove out than if it weren't lined at all and you could just wipe the whole shelf off.

When we owned our own home, I did not line b/c I did not want to mess it up, and I have a hard time doing it to the standard I would like, lol! However, living in Army quarters mostly, I always line them

I ripped out the only liner because of crumbs and old food getting stuck. I can see it being a pain to line (I didn't do it the first time around) so maybe I'll just let it sit as it remains.

I only line cupboards that are old & kind of dingy. I give everything a good scrub & if it still doesn't look clean than I line it.

Hey, that's my son's bathroom!

That isn't paper, I painted those shelves.

I would love to find some pretty liner paper for my hall linen closet.
