I want to do this curtain trick so I don't have to look at my broom, mops and dustpan! :) Closed Curtain: No pantry? No problem. Designate a niche next to your refrigerator as food staple central. Fill the space with shelves (a bookcase works well) and hang a tension curtain rod between the wall and the refrigerator, decked out with a curtain to match your kitchen decor.
